Power equipment manufacturer STIHL is recalling part of its “RE 90” pressure washer. 

The nozzle of the washer can disconnect from the spray wand while in use and pose an injury risk. The company has received seven reports about the wand disconnecting while in use, but no injuries have been reported. About 16,400 wands are included in the recall. 

The pressure washer is gray and orange with “STIHL RE 90” on the front. The recalled spray wand is 15 inches and attaches to the spray gun. 

Consumers should stop using the power washer and contact STIHL or an authorized dealer for a free replacement wand.
