    Guys, if you have the handheld Stihl shredder vac/blower check with your dealer. I recieved a recall by mail saying they may fly apart inside. If you did not register yours when you bought it you may not get the recall.

    Ouch! Did your recall letter list an affected serial # series?

    I don't have one, but I will be getting one when the Echo dies.

    Rest assured though... Stihl is very proactive about rectifying any problems.

    If I recall correctly there was a post about this a while back(maybe a year or so) where one of the fellow members had a chunk taken out of his hand. I think he may have included a photo in this post. I think he even showed the piece missing from the shreder.
