MSA 300 Recall

7 August 2023

As a responsible manufacturer, STIHL has decided to issue a recall from certain MSA 300 cordless chainsaws. We have detected anomalies in the chain brake system. Investigations showed that the normative requirements according to the chain braking time are not reliably fulfilled on some of the machines.

Therefore, in the event of a kickback, there may be an increased risk of injury to the user.

We have decided to issue a recall for the potentially affected machines and to replace the brake band and brake drum.

This affects certain machines that have a machine serial number below 447457319.

If you own an affected cordless STIHL MSA 300 chainsaw, please stop using the machine immediately.

Please contact your local STIHL Approved Dealer for a repair. This repair is free of charge for you.

We ask for your understanding for this precautionary measure. Please take this action in the interest of your own safety.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your local STIHL dealer. You can find your local STIHL Approved dealer here.
