Generac Generators Recalled for Finger Amputation Hazard

On July 29, 2021, Generac Power Systems recalled about 321,160 Generac® and DR® 6500-Watt and 8000-Watt portable generators due to a serious injury hazard, including finger amputations and crushing injuries.

What is the Problem?

The problem is that “an unlocked handle can pinch consumers’ fingers against the generator frame when the generator is moved, posing finger amputation and crushing hazards,” according to the recall.

Generac reported 8 injuries, including 7 resulting in finger amputations and one involving a crushed finger.

What Generators Were Recalled?

The recall involves model-years 2013 through 2021 portable generators, including the Generac® XT8000E, XT8000EFI, GP6500, GP6500E, GP8000E, HomeLink 6500E and DR® PRO 6500M and PRO 6500E.

The recalled generators havea single, U-shaped, two-grip, flip-up pin-lock handle to help move the generator. Generac is offering a free repair kit that includes a handle-guard.

Consumers can check specific unit type, model number, and serial number location information at www.generac.com/handleguard.

Where Were They Sold?
