Hitachi—C8FB2/C10FCB/C10FS/C12FA/C7FS Mitre Saws
What are the defects?
When the saw head is in its fully upright position, the self adjusting guard of the product does not completely enclose the lower portion of the blade unprotected by the fixed guard. In the event of improper or incorrect use by an operator, the current blade guard configuration does not provide optimum protection from the exposed portion of the blade.
What are the hazards?
What should consumers do?
Any owners should contact Hitachi Power Tools Australia's Customer Service Centre (phone no. 1800 100 600) to make arrangements for the fitting of a modification to the blade guard or other remedial action as appropriate for the model concerned.
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is the responsible regulator for this recall.
