Black & Decker Corp. Faces Lawsuits in Baltimore over Table Saws
Sep 11 13
Black & Decker Corp. is facing federal lawsuits in Baltimore from at least four consumers alleging they were injured using the Towson toolmaker's table saws. The lawsuits, filed by plaintiffs from Texas, Kentucky, Indiana and Arkansas, allege that table saws designed, made or sold by Black & Decker were defective because they were not being equipped with a device called a riving knife. A riving knife is a small metal device that reduces the chances of the wood jerking back and causing the saw operator's hands from being pulled into the saw's blades, according to the lawsuit. The four lawsuits, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, allege that the plaintiffs suffered "severe and permanent personal injuries" when their fingers came in contact with the saw blade.
The Black & Decker Corporation Heats Up Home Cleaning with New Range of Steam Cleaning Units
Mar 5 13
The Black & Decker Corporation heats up home cleaning with an all-new range of steam cleaning units. Now available in four new models, there's a steam cleaning unit for every lifestyle. The new steam cleaning units use water to kill 99.9% of germs to achieve a deep down clean. Features available on Black & Decker's new steam cleaning units that address the areas of improvement and innovation identified for steam cleaning units include a removable water tank that allows users to fill directly into the water reservoir and a digital handle command which provides adjustable steam setting controls right in the handle. Two of the new models include SmartSelect(R) technology where consumers can choose a steam setting to address individual floor types. Smart Select provides three different steam settings that correspond to different floor types to produce the right amount of steam to clean the selected floor material. The wood setting is the lowest and keeps the unit safe for sealed hardwood floors thus eliminating the guess work as to what setting is safe for floor. Select models include the steam burst feature which produces up to 50% more steam in a 10 second burst. The steam burst option is useful for removing tough grime and stains in heavily soiled areas. An additional feature on select models, the Lift & Reach(TM) detail head, is designed to provide access to tight spaces and corners. To use the Lift and Reach option, simply step on the release bar located on the steam mop unit to remove the Lift and Reach detail head from the larger pad. All of the new steam mop units have an automatic upright shut off which helps protects floors from damage during pauses in cleaning, a 15-second heat up time and a ready-to go illumination tank that changes from red to blue to let users know when the steam mop reaches the correct temperature. The SmartSelect(R) Deluxe Steam Mop with Handle Command (BDH1760SM) is the signature steam mop unit and features the one-touch steam burst option, removable Lift & Reach detail head for hard to reach places and Handle Command which gives users complete control of floor surface settings from digital controls on the handle of the unit. This unit features a swiveling floor head for easy maneuverability. The BDH1760SM is self-standing and includes a carpet glider, two large cleaning pads and two Lift & Reach cleaning pads. The BDH1760SM will have a suggested retail price of $119.99.
