Lowes Is Recalling Chainsaws That Don't Shut-Off: The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling more than 250,000 chainsaws sold at Lowe's because they may not turn off. The recalls include the Kobalt brand 40-volt lithium-ion 12-inch cordless electric chainsaws with date codes from 11/01/13 to 03/31/20 and Kobalt brand 40-volt lithium-ion 8-inch cordless electric pole saws manufactured from January 2017 through February 2019. It seems the on/off switch on the recalled saws could keep it running even after a person releases the trigger or it moves into the off position. That's certainly not good. Around 100 complaints have already been filed, but fortunately, there have been no injuries reported, yet.
