WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Hitachi Koki U.S.A., Ltd., of Norcross, Ga., is voluntarily recalling about 14,300 circular saws. The lower blade guards on these saws can stick in the open position, exposing the blade and posing a serious laceration hazard.

Hitachi has not received any reports of injuries, but has received two reports from consumers of the lower guards sticking.

If I owned one of these saws, I would be taking it in to be fixed, right away.
This the tool that I hold the most respect for.
It is a Shark on the end of a Flex.
