    CPSC, Stihl Inc. Announce Recall of Chain Saws

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

    Name of Product: Stihl-brand MS 192 T Chain Saws

    Units: About 23,500

    Hazard: These chain saws can leak fuel, posing a fire hazard. A connection in the ignition grounding system could loosen and create a spark, posing a fire hazard. Also the springs in the clutch assembly could come out of position allowing a spring of the clutch to be projected from the saw housing resulting in injury to the user.

    Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

    Description: The recalled Stihl-brand chain saws have model number MS 192 T, located on the side of the chain saw's starter housing. They include serial numbers 264371702 through 266087005, which is located on the top/front of the chain saw's housing.

    Remedy: Consumers should stop using these chain saws immediately and return them to an authorized Stihl dealer for a free repair.

    Wouldn't be great if the recall actually said THAT?

    Couldnt be happier, we have an 1800+ sq ft Cape (built 1997)
    We havent had much in the way of cold weather lately but during that cold snap in December we had lows of 10 at night and after loading for the night I would only lose a degree or two
    I can get an 8+ hour overnight burn and only have to throw more wood in to keep it going

    You can side load on the stove too which is what I do (I do build from the front because it is easier that way but always re-load from the side)
    The air control may be the best feature, its really a no-brainer.............very simple

    I would be interested to see a better ash pan arrangement.
    They are BIG and very easy to take out and empty

    EDIT:
    I see the Jotul has a separate chamber for the ashes
    I can take out the ashes while the stove is burning, I just have to crack the door for a bit with full air to keep the smoke from coming in the room while doing it.
