Bosch has announced a recall of more than 22,000 SkilSaw 10-inch compound miter saws. The lower guard on the recalled saws can break and contact the blade during use, posing a risk of laceration hazard to users.
The Bosch miter saws affected by this recall were sold Lowe's Home Improvement stores nationwide and through OC Tanner from January 2012 through April 2012. The SkilSaw logo appears at the top of the upper blade guard and on the dust collection bag.
All recalled saws will have the model number 3316 along with a date code of 111, 112, 201, 202, 203 or 204 located on the lower right side of the name plate on the motor housing.
Consumers should stop using the recalled miter saws immediately and contact Robert Bosch Tool Corporation for a free lower guard replacement kit. For more information, call 888-727-6109.
