Bosch Power Tools attaches great importance to the quality and safety of its products. User satisfaction is our highest priority. We would therefore like to inform you of a voluntary safety-related measure.


In the course of our ongoing quality controls we have determined 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 number of angle grinders. We therefore cannot rule out the possibility of cuts or bruises being incurred in rare cases.


To fulfil our responsibility to our customers, we have decided to recall all potentially affected devices as a precaution and, where necessary, to repair or exchange the devices. We will naturally exchange or repair the devices free of charge.


With immediate effect, the angle grinders involved must no longer be used or provided to others.


Should you have meanwhile resold a potentially affected device or passed it on to others, we kindly request that you pass this safety warning on to the recipient as quickly as possible so as to ensure that these products are no longer used.


The tools affected are those produced in Russia in the PWS 20, PWS 1900, PWS 2000, GWS 20, GWS 22 and GWS 24 series during the production period from June through to August 2016 and the model GWS 24-230 JVX Professional with brake from the production period from February through to October 2016.


On the website www.anglegrindercare.com users can check online whether their angle grinders are affected.


Bosch Power Tools regrets the quality problems that have arisen and apologises to all consumers who have been affected.

Important Safety Information

Voluntary safety-related recall of series PSS 2, PSS 20, PSS 190, PSS 200, PSS 250 and PSS 2000 sanders – affects tools from the production period from June through to August 2007 and tools repaired in the period from June through to December 2007. +++ Effective immediately, tools must no longer be used or passed on to others.


Bosch Power Tools attaches great importance to the quality and safety of its products. The satisfaction of our users is our highest priority. We would therefore like to inform you of a voluntary safety-related measure.


In the course of our ongoing quality controls we have determined that a material defect of the ventilation wheel can occur with a limited number of sanders. This could cause a break of the device housing and smaller parts of the ventilation wheel could be ejected. It cannot be ruled out that this could lead to injuries. Further, live components could be exposed which in a worst case scenario could result in a life-threatening electric shock. However, we are not aware of any such cases.


In order to meet our responsibility towards our clients, we have decided to recall the affected devices as a precaution and exchange them for new devices. Naturally, this exchange will be free of charge to the users.


With immediate effect, the sanders involved must no longer be used or provided to others. Should you have meanwhile resold a potentially affected tool or passed it on to others, we kindly request that you pass this safety warning on to the recipient of the tool as quickly as possible so as to ensure that the affected products are no longer used.


This involves sander series PSS 2, PSS 20, PSS 190, PSS 200, PSS 250 and PSS 2000 which were manufactured from June through August 2007.


Additionally, tools are also potentially affected if they were repaired in the period from June through to December 2007.


On the website www.sandercare.com users can check online whether their orbital sanders are affected.
