“Roto Zip Tool Corp. Handheld Saws”

Roto Zip Tool Corporation, of Cross Plains, Wis., is voluntarily recalling about 1.9 million handheld saws. The handles on these saws can separate from the body, causing the operator to be cut.

CPSC and Roto Zip Tool Corp. have received 360 reports of loose or separating handles on the saws. As a result, there have been 19 reports of injuries to consumers, including some cuts requiring stitches.

The recall includes RevolutionÆ, Rebelô and Solarisô model Spiral SawTM power tools. The brand name and “ROTOZIP SPIRAL SAW” are written on the side of the tools. The saws are mostly black or red. The recalled saws include the serial numbers listed below:

  • Revolution(R) Serial Number Range: 01 through 1,145,000
  • RebelTM Serial Number Range: 01 through 415,
  • SolarisTM Serial Number Range: 01 through 270,000

Home, hardware and department stores, and infomercials sold these saws nationwide from December 1999 through January 2002.

Consumers should remove the handle from their recalled saw if there is a loose fit between the tool handle and the tool body, and contact Roto Zip Tool Corp. to receive a free replacement handle.
