This voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The fuel line on some Echo power hand tools may develop an “alligator surface” appearance that could develop into a condition that could allow the seepage of gasoline through the wall of the fuel line. The leaking gasoline and vapor could result in a fire, which could cause serious personal injury.

The Echo products involved in this recall were all manufactured between February 2003 through November 2003, and were sold to the public during and after that time period.

The specific products involved are identified by the model and serial numbers as shown below:

(see their website for models, descriptions, and serial # ranges)

If you have a tool affected by this recall, please stop using the tool immediately. Because of the potential fire hazard, the tool must have the fuel line removed and replaced with a fuel line that will eliminate the potential hazard. Take your tool to an authorized Echo dealer for free repair.

If you are no longer in possession of a tool involved in this recall, please immediately forward to us the name and address of the person who has custody of the tool.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at our Toll Free number, 1-800-254-4808 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. C.S.T. Monday through Friday. For more information or to locate an authorized Echo Service Dealer near you, visit our web site at
