I don't understand one statement in the story:
"Unfortunately, owners of these chain saws won’t be getting a refund.
Rather, the company is asking people to return their chain saws to their
local Harbor Freight Tools stores in exchange for a new one, the
statement said."

Why unfortunate? You bought a chainsaw, you get a chainsaw. The author
may be one of those people that buy a tool at Home Depot and return it
after they use it.

I wonder what the author expects when one of his vehicles is subject to a recall. Does he
expect to get his money back?

False news.

So when you something off, it turns off.... If the tool continues to
run, it is not really turned off, is it?

The reporter/story teller could have more accurately said, the switch
does not operate correctly.

False News - the problem might be electrical trickle-leak -
causing a muscle-clamp in the trigger finger -
preventing release of the perfectly functional switch.
So there ! Let's have a Fox vs CNN battle !
.... duh.
Ass U Me ? both ? Yep !

used a stihl once that was gas powered and the off switch would
not shut it off

only a full choke would make it shut off

the hf saw always shuts off for me

had a harder time with turning it on as the switch is designed in a way
that requires a very firm grip for it to go


but for the money it is a good saw and it is light enough to be used
with one hand for those hard to reach spots

does not have the gusto of gas but still good for yard work
