The switch/trigger failed and when the Chainsaw is plugged in to power, the Chainsaw runs at full speed. It can not be shut down until power is removed. The saw guard was still on however it was tossed approximately 10 feet and the chain impacted the driveway and came off the guide.

Comment from Harbor Freight Tools 6/13/2018
Thank you for reporting this incident. Please note, Harbor Freight Tools had previously recalled these chainsaws and are asking consumers to return their chainsaws to their nearest Harbor Freight retail location for a replacement with a new switch mechanism. Do not continue to use this chainsaw.
