URGENT Product recall

Bosch has announced a product recall on a select number of grinders.


Bosch Power Tools have discovered during their quality controls processes that, due to a faulty component, the cutting or grinding disc together with the fastening fixture (spindle) could become detached during operation on a limited range of angle grinders. The devices that are affected were manufactured from February through to August 2016 in Russia. The series numbers of the affected are prefixed with GWS 20, GWS 22, GWS 24, PWS20, PWS 1900, PWS 2000 as well as model GWS 24-230 JVX Professional with brake.

Key points

Bosch has advised that, with immediate effect, the angle grinders with the models and serial numbers listed in the table should no longer be used or provided to others. The affected grinders can be clearly identified by way of the country of manufacture in conjunction with the device and serial numbers. The location of the model, serial numbers and country of manufacture are shown in the photograph below.
