The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that the Robert Bosch Tool Corp. has voluntarily recalled its Skil® brand of circular saws due to some operating risks.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that the Robert Bosch Tool Corp. has voluntarily recalled its Skil® brand of circular saws. The saws were sold at home centers and independent hardware retailers nationwide from January 2002 through December 2006 for between $70 and $80.

The trigger switch on the circular saw can be locked on or the switch can be turned on without the use of the safety lockout. This can cause unexpected operation of the saw, posing a risk of laceration.

The firm has received five reports of the saw staying on after the user released the trigger. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves Skil brand circular saws with model numbers 5650, 5700, 5750 and 5755. The model number and date code are printed on the nameplate located on the front of the saw. The recall includes the following date codes:

  • 28101 – 29231
  • 38101 – 39231
  • 48101 – 49231
  • 58101 – 59231
  • 68101 – 69231


No other models or date codes are included in this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled saws and contact the firm for instructions on obtaining a free repair. 

Contact the Robert Bosch Tool Corp. toll-free at 866/761-5572 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.skil.com.
