DeWALT Table Saw Recall
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a nationwide Dewalt Table Saw recall due to a defect which could lead to severe lacerations. The recall applies to the 10 inch DeWalt Jobsite Table Saw model number DW744. Consumers have been told to immediately stop using the recalled saws, and individuals who were injured as a result of this defect may be entitled to compensation through a DeWalt Table Saw Lawsuit.
The table saws were manufactured by DeWalt Industrial Tool Company, based in Towson, Maryland. Defects could allow the pivot bracket on the saw to separate, leading to a misalignment of the blade and the fence. This could cause a kick back, and poses a severe hazard of lacerations and serious injuries for users of the table saw.
Approximately 13,000 of the defective table saws were sold throughout the United States between April 2007 and January 2008 for about $500 each. The DEWALT jobsite table saw recall only applies to model number DW744 with date codes between 200715 and 200740. The Saws are yellow and black, with the model number and date code located on a name plate on the front. The manufacturer indicates that if an “X” is stamped on the name plate by the date code, the table saw is not subject to the recall.
Individuals who own one of the recalled DeWalt table saws may contact the manufacturer at (888) 742-9178 to obtain the location of a service center where a free replacement saw can be obtained.
