Generac has recalled two types of portable generators due to finger amputation and crushing hazards. The Generac® and DR® 6500 Watt and 8000 Watt portable generators are recalled due to an unlocked handle that can pinch users’ fingers against the generator frame when the unit is moved. 

Users are advised to stop using the recalled portable generators immediately unless the locking pin has been inserted to secure the handle in place before and after moving the generator. Users are also advised to contact Generac for a free
repair kit.
