22,000 Miter Saws Recalled

Robert Bosch Tool Corporation and CPSC warned owners to stop using the saws immediately and contact the company for a free lower guard replacement kit.

Robert Bosch Tool Corporation of Mount Prospect, Ill. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced about 22,149 SkilSaw® 10-inch Model 3316 compound miter saws are being voluntarily recalled because the lower guard can break and contact the blade during use, which poses a laceration hazard to users.

Both organizations warned owners to stop using the saws immediately and contact the company for a free lower guard replacement kit. The firm has received no reports of incidents or injuries.

The recalled saws have model number 3316 and date codes 111, 112, 201, 202, 203, or 204. The model number and date code are on the lower right side of the name plate located on the motor housing. The SkilSaw logo appears at the top of the upper blade guard and on the dust collection bag. Made in China, they were sold at Lowe's Home Centers nationwide and OC Tanner from January 2012 to April 2012.

Owners can contact the firm at 888-727-6109 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Central weekdays or by visiting this website.
