I too wonder how old was the article? very little trouble in the last three years or more. Hubbell and P&S are the the standards of the industry as far as I’m concerned — but don’t buy the “penny saver” “builders spec” level of any brand at the hardware or home center. go to the local electrical distributor and you should be getting spec grade stuff at about $6.50 – 8.50 depending on your discount structure. If a specific application is giving grief then get a 20amp model for $11-13 and you probably will never hear back again.
Purchasers of certain models should stop using the saw immediately and contact DeWalt to receive a free repair kit.
