This came across my desk to-day, now I'm not sure if it only applies in Canada or if it's a general product recall.

Chainsaw Recall
Chainsaws made by both Makita USA Inc and Dolmar Power Products have been voluntarily recalled due to safety hazards. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the chainsaw's flywheel can come apart during use, risking serious personal injury. The companies have received three reports of the flywheel coming apart. Fortunately there have been no reports of injury.
The teal-colored Makita chainsaws involved in the recall are DCS6401 and DCS7901 models with the last five digits in these ranges:
DCS6401: 41915 through 45612, 81722 through 82057
DCS7901: 31182 through 31491.
The red Dolmar chainsaws involved in the recall are PS6400 and PS7900 models with the last five digits in these ranges:
PS6400: 71998 through 79250
PS7900: 40156 through 43009
Note that if the letter "N" precedes the serial number on the nameplate and there's a blue dot on the shipping carton, that product has been repaired and is not involved in the recall.
Both the Makita and the Dolmar chainsaws were sold October 2004 through August 2005.
Action :
