Ryobi Radial Arm Saws Recalled for Blade Detachment Hazard
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Ryobi Motor Products Corp. formerly of Anderson, S.C. ("RMP"); Ryobi Electric Tool Manufacturing, Inc. formerly of Chandler, Ariz.; and Ryobi Limited, of Hiroshima, Japan, are voluntarily recalling about 145,000 Ryobi Radial Arm Saws. Cracking of the plastic motor housing can cause the blade assembly to fall during operation, posing a risk of laceration to the operator or bystanders. The detachment may occur unexpectedly and without warning.
