Building relationships to deliver innovative coverage
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), DeWALT Industrial Tool Company is voluntarily recalling about 55,00 heavy-duty, lightweight circular saws. The spindle on the saw may slip causing the blade to contact the lower guard, which poses a hazard to the consumer from an exposed blade.
The recall involves 7ª-inch circular saws with the model numbers DW368, DW368K, or DW369CSK. The model number is located on a black label near the handle of the saw or on a yellow sticker attached to the carrying case. The saws have date codes 200128-F through 200152-F stamped on the bottom of the motor case. The housing is yellow and on the upper blade is printed the word “DeWALT.” Home centers and hardware stores nationwide sold the circular saws from July 2001 through December 2001.
Consumers should stop using the circular saws immediately and return them to the nearest DeWALT service center for a free repair. For more information or to locate the nearest service center, consumers should contact DeWALT toll free at 888-839-3559 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
