DEWALT Recalls Table Saws With Laceration Hazard
In cooperation with DEWALT Industrial Tool Co., the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on April 29 announced a voluntary recall of the manufacturer’s 10-inch DW744 Jobsite Table Saws.
The pivot bracket on the saw can separate, which can misalign the blade and the fence and cause kickback, posing a laceration hazard to customers.
Although no injuries have been reported, DEWALT has received one reported incident of the table saw’s blade misaligning. About 13,000 of the saws were produced.
Date codes included in the recall are 200715 through 200740. The saws are yellow and black. The model number and date code are located on the name plate on the front of the saw. Table saws with an “X” stamped on the name plate by the date code are not included in this recall.
The saws were sold at major home centers and hardware stores nationwide from April 2007 through January 2008 for about $500.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saws and contact DEWALT for the location of a service center to obtain a free replacement.
