Calor Gas Limited has issued a product recall with immediate effect on a limited number of 4.5kg Butane cylinders. The recall relates only to those cylinders with a Next Test code of 33 and 34 and fitted with a TPA valve manufactured in 2017.

All machines with the machine number 189442634 up to and including 190001700 are affected.
STIHL have identified that a limited number of TS410 and TS420 cut-off machines were assembled with the flywheel-to-crankshaft connection overtightened.
This could cause the flywheel to fail and break apart while the engine is running. A failure during the operation of the machine would pose a projectile hazard to the user or a bystander. A damaged flywheel is not apparent from a visual inspection.
You can find the machine number as per the image below.
