Hitachi have become aware that some Hitachi and Tanaka Brush Cutters / Pole Saws / Pole Hedge Trimmers (collectively “Brush Cutter”) have a manufacturing defect. This defect may cause the exhaust to become very hot so that there is a risk of suffering a burn in the event of accidental contact with the exhaust cover or in extreme cases a risk that the machine could catch fire. If you own a Hitachi or Tanaka “Brush Cutter”, please check the model number located as in Figures 1 and 2 to see whether it is on the list of affected models.

If you have an affected Brush Cutter please stop using it immediately.

We would like to carry out a simple modification to your Brush Cutter, which will make it safe.
