Check to See if This Recall Affects Your DeWalt Miter Saw
DeWalt has issued an important safety notice to alert consumers about potential malfunctions in certain models of their miter saws. According to the brand, the plastic rear guard assembly of these saws may crack, shatter, or separate upon impact, exposing the saw blade and posing a hazard to the user. You can find out if your DeWalt miter saw is directly affected by this recall.
The DeWalt miter saw recall encompasses three models, including two corded saws and one battery-operated FlexVolt saw:
- DWS780 12 Inch Miter Saw
- DHS790 FlexVolt 40V Miter Saw (including designations DHS790AB and DHS790AT2)
If you own any of these miter saws, please check the date code printed on the tool. This recall only pertains to tools with date codes ranging from 2019 04 to 2022 04. If your date code falls outside this range, your miter saw has been modified to prevent the condition that led to this recall.
DeWalt has already conducted inspections on some saws to ensure compliance with safety standards. If your saw has a green or black dot next to the serial number on the label or below the blade, it indicates that it has been inspected and will not be affected by the recall.
