Stihl recalls pressure washers due to injury hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Stihl is recalling its RE 90 Pressure Washers. The pressure washer nozzle can disconnect from the spray wand when under pressure during use, posing an injury hazard. About 16,400 units are affected by the recall.

This recall involves the spray wand supplied with STIHL RE 90 Pressure Washers. The pressure washer is gray and orange with “STIHL RE 90” printed on the front. The recalled spray wand measures 15 inches long and attaches to the spray gun. Interchangeable nozzles connect to the spray wand.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure washers and contact Stihl or an authorized Stihl servicing dealer to receive a free replacement spray wand. 

STIHL has received seven reports of the nozzle detaching from the spray wand during use. No injuries have been reported.

They were sold at authorized Stihl dealers nationwide from May 2019 through October 2019 for about $180. The importer is Stihl Inc., of Virginia Beach, Virginia. They were manufactured in China.
