Potential for Projectile Metal Leads to Table Saw Recall from Machinery Company
Grizzly Industrial is issuing the recall for its 10-inch hybrid table saw after reports that the motor pulley can come loose and hit the blade. This can cause the blade teeth to break into flying metal fragments, posing a risk of laceration or impact injury to consumers.
The recall involves saws with model number G0771 and serial number between TS2014060001 and TS2014111244 or a date code between 06/2014 and 11/2014. The Grizzly logo, "G0771," the serial number and the date code are printed on the side of the table saw's enclosed white metal base.
Grizzly has received two reports of incidents in relation to this recall. One incident resulted in a broken nose and lacerations for a 46 year-old user.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saws and return them to Grizzly for a full refund, free repair or a free motor pulley kit that can be installed by the consumer. Grizzly is contacting consumers who bought the recalled table saws directly.
The hybrid table saw was sold in Grizzly showrooms, online at Grizzly.com, in Grizzly's catalogs and in woodworking trade magazines from January 2015 through May 2015 for about $625.
Customers with questions about the recall can contact Grizzly at (800) 523-4777.
