The fuel tank could leak, posing a fire hazard.
Makita has recalled its EM2500L, EM2600L and ER2600L petrol line trimmers. If the grommet becomes deformed after a period of use, the fuel tank may leak which could pose a fire hazard.
The affected line trimmers were sold at NZ retail outlets between June 2016 and August 2017.
The affected models can be identified by the serial numbers below:
Check the model and serial number of your line trimmer.
If your line trimmer is within the affected range, stop using it. Take it into the store you bought it from or a Makita Authorised Service Agent for a free modification.
