2017.01.13 Recall: Bosch Angle Grinder

The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:

Bosch Power Tools attaches great importance to the quality and safety of its products. User satisfaction is our highest priority. We would therefore like to inform you of a voluntary safety-related measure.

In the course of our ongoing quality controls we have determined that, due to a faulty component, the cutting or grinding disc together with the fastening fixture (spindle) could become detached during operation on a limited number of angle grinders. We therefore cannot rule out the possibility of cuts or bruises being incurred in rare cases.

To fulfil our responsibility to our customers, we have decided to recall all potentially affect-ed devices as a precaution and, where necessary, to repair or exchange the devices. We will naturally exchange or repair the devices free of charge.

With immediate effect, the angle grinders involved may no longer be used or provided to others. Should you have meanwhile resold a potentially affected device or passed it on to others, we kindly request that you pass this safety warning on to the recipient as quickly as possible so as to ensure that these products are no longer used.

The following devices are affected: devices manufactured in Russia of Series GWS 20, GWS 22, GWS 24, PWS 20, PWS 1900, PWS 2000 from the production period June through to August 2016 and the model GWS 24-230 JVX Professional with brake from the production period February through to October 2016. They can be clearly identified by way of the country of manufacture in conjunction with the device and serial numbers.
