Hitachi Power Tools—C10FC 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. In the event of improper or incorrect use by an operator, (i.e., use that does not comply with the Instruction Manual), the current blade guard configuration does not provide optimum protection from the exposed portion of the blade.
