STIHL of Virginia Beach, Va., is recalling about 16,400 STIHL RE 90 Pressure Washers.

The nozzle can disconnect from the spray wand when under pressure during use, posing an injury hazard.

The firm has received seven reports of the nozzle detaching from the spray wand during use. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the spray wand supplied with STIHL RE 90 Pressure Washers. The pressure washer is gray and orange with “STIHL RE 90” printed on the front.

The recalled spray wand measures 15 inches long and attaches to the spray gun. Interchangeable nozzles connect to the spray wand.

The pressure washers, manufactured in China, were sold at authorized STIHL dealers nationwide from May 2019, through October 2019, for about $180.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure washers and contact STIHL or an authorized STIHL servicing dealer to receive a free replacement spray wand.

Consumers may contact STIHL toll-free at (844) 978-1291 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, or online at www.stihlusa.com for more information.
