Bosch Angle Grinder Recall

I  ran across this story this morning and I don't know if it affects anyone in the US but I know we have users from Europe on here so I figured I would forward the information.

Not sure how the model numbers compare but I know they recalled the 1380 slim grinder here. Mine is still being repaired.

What happened to it?

Or rather, what was the potential failure?

Brushes could overheat and burn the operator or possibly catch on fire. I had not had any issues with it.

Damn, too bad it's not a recall of the Bosch Slim. I punished that grinder for a decade and it finally shat the bed. I'm sure it could have been repaired, but for how inexpensive they are, not worth it. I cannot believe Bosch discontinued the Slim model. WTF?? A grinder with a thin enough housing to make it super comfortable to use and they shelve it. Just stupid.

We also had to sent back all our gws 18 v like grinders with the 6.3 eneracer batteries.

 

Bosch will remove the brake from these grinders.
