The Toro Company is recalling 605 model year 2017-2019 model 22618 Log Splitters and model year 2017-2020 model 22618HD Log Splitters.
The tow pole mounting plates could bend after the log splitter is towed off curbs, over railroad tracks or into potholes, causing the tow pole bolts to break.
If the tow pole bolts break, the log splitter could tip over or detach, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Toro will notify owners, and dealers will upgrade the attachment plate and add additional reinforcement bolts free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in November 2020.
Owners may contact Toro customer service at (800) 654-1882.
