DETAILS: TS 55 REQ Plunge Cut Circular Saw for woodcutting with a 160 mm saw blade. It has aluminum guide rails and a plunge cut feature. The date code and serial number are found on a rating plate on the saw’s motor housing under the main handle. Recalled saws include date codes ranging from 02/13 to 05/13 and serial numbers 40033594 through 40074108. They were sold from May to July in 2013.
WHY: The plunge lock can engage when not intended, causing the saw blade to remain exposed from the housing following completion of the plunge cut and posing a laceration hazard.
INCIDENTS: None reported.
HOW MANY: About 5,200 in the U.S. and 500 in Canada.
