A cut with grave consequences
The impact of cutting injuries
Johannes, how has your life changed since the accident?
Paw, who is more likely to experience an accident whilst sawing?
Is it more likely inexperienced tradespeople or professionals?
PM: You might think that it's predominantly inexperienced or untrained people who become the victims of accidents, but the opposite is the case. Those affected are usually very experienced tradespeople like Johannes, who suffer injuries purely on account of how frequently they use saws. A brief moment of carelessness is all it takes.
What kinds of injuries occur and how many cases are there every year in Sweden?
Is the TKS 80 otherwise a good bench-mounted circular saw?
Does the SawStop-AIM-technology work on all materials?
What happens if you're working with gloves on? Is the SawStop-AIM-technology still reactive?
How long does it take until the saw blade stops?
How much does it cost to change the saw blade?
PM: Around 130 euros for the saw blade and around 90 euros for a new cartridge.
JF: I was off work completely for three months and then working part time for another six months. With that in mind, what are around 200 euros for a saw blade and a replacement cartridge?
