    Makita recall

    Hello Bill I have only sold one complete handle and the actual saw handle after a accident in the forest with one 7910 ive sold a few brake bands over the years and a few springs but never a brake flag through everyday use they should be concerned as you’ve not even used it also I noticed your spring is lost a bit of tension the retaining cup just needs a bit rounding of the end

    Makita recall

    Hello Bill that is bad cant beleive they would do this , surely drilling a safety handle isn’t a good idea , if you drilled a safety hard hat HSE wouldn’t allow this can you send me some very very good detailed photos so I can chase it up I wouldn’t dare send a safety handle back too anyone in this state obviously they’ve drilled it to put this sticker on the pop rivet has put pressure on the plastic then it’s had a bump via courier delivery thankfully breaking it before you used it it it will be interesting too see the handles that come from Dolmar

    Makita recall

    Been in contact with Makita about the time scale on this recall and they have been asking people to give details of there saw and then it’s been collected as you all have said But the problem lies with the fact they haven’t got the spare parts in hand too do this warranty recall , as there is a worldwide shortage of these parts . This chassis With the different size engines in red and blue has been sold in the thousands worldwide since 2015 I have contacted Dolmar where these models are produced and there in the same boat no parts availability the new 2018 models are on back order so it will be weeks before they will be on the shop counter customers that have bought these saws from me , there will be a demonstrator Saw available if you get in a fix and need a bigger Saw to cover there 7910 going in for warranty repairs So please check with Makita or message me before sending in your Saw and hopefully either way you will get an answer on time taken too fix but please don’t worry it is a fantastic Saw don’t be afraid to purchase one in the future Red or Blue there exactly the same
