Angle grinder chainsaw disc attachment Recall

30 June 2021




These products present a risk of serious injury or fatality from the disc slipping or producing kick back when in use.

This alert follows reports of injuries arising from kickback caused by the chain gripping the cutting surface and forcing the angle grinder to sharply turn or jump out of the hand of the operator, leading to hand, finger, head injury or fatality.

These chainsaw discs are marketed to be used with angle grinders and simulate a chainsaw effect. However, angle grinders are not designed for use with such accessories as they do not incorporate the safety features required for electric chainsaws.
