Hitachi—C12FSA Compound Mitre Saw

PRA number


Published date

Product description

This product was sold in all Australian states and territories between December 1997 and February 2007.

Reasons the product is recalled

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.

The hazards to consumers


What consumers should 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.
