Product description

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

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.
