Complete List of Recalled Power Tools

Working with power tools does come with some inherent safety risks, despite our best efforts to use safety equipment and properly maintain and care for our tools. But how can you know if your power tools have manufacturing defects that jeopardize your safety?

Luckily for us, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury, which means working alongside manufacturers to identify possible errors and recall those tools that might be faulty and passed the initial safety checks.

It happens very rarely – but it still happens – that some power tools need to be recalled after they have been put on the market, so I think it’s wise for every professional to go through the most popular recalled power tools list on the market and see if you have in your workstation any of the following models. If you do, please don’t hesitate to follow the relevant instructions to contact the manufacturer and ask for a replacement. Like the old adage says, better safe than sorry.

Our goal is to make a complete list of recalled power tools to be used as a reference by ever consumer. If you are aware of a power tool that we missed, please let us know so we can constantly update the list.
