The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Bachtold Brothers Inc. of Gibson City, IL, U.S. has recalled 63,600 weed and brush cutters.

When using the product, operators may come in contact with the rotating blade, even when disengaged, by pulling on the front of the mower deck while the engine is running, posing a serious injury hazard.

The manufacturer has received eight reports of laceration injuries.

Consumers were advised to stop using the units immediately and contact Bachtold for the Whipper or B-800 models or contact Country Home Products for the DR Field & Brush models to receive a free repair kit. The repair involves the installation of a mechanism that will shut down the engine if and when the operator takes his/her hands off the handlebar.

The recalled weed and brush cutters have an orange or green body and include the W-24 models, sold under the Bachtold Whipper, DR Field & Brush Mower, and B-800 (with a 77-100 deck) brand names. DR All-Terrain Field & Brush mowers manufactured by Country Home Products are not included in this recall.

The outdoor appliances, which were manufactured in the U.S, were sold through Country Home Products' catalogues, as well as independent distributors nationwide, from January 1978 through April 2001 for between U.S. $950 and $1,600. The County Home Products web site sold the brush cutters between 1989 and 1999.
