DeWALT has recalled about 8,500 DEWALT DWCS600, 18-inch corded chain saws as the saw can remain running when the switch is on the off position or turn on when plugged in, posing an injury hazard to the user.
The chain saws are yellow with a black handle and motor cover. Only chain saws with date codes 2021 23-H5 to 2021 40-H5 are affected by this recall. The date code is stamped on the bottom of the chain saw, behind the chain/bar. DeWALT and 18-in. are written on the blade.
Hardware and tool supply stores nationwide from June 2021 through November 2021 for between $130 and $150.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chain saws and contact DEWALT to receive a pre-paid shipping label to return the product directly to DEWALT in order to receive a free replacement chain saw.
