BOSCH REAXX Saw Update
Bosch Update on the REAXX Table Saw Lawsuit
The following statement was issued by Bosch today:
Bosch continues to fight for customers’ ability to buy its REAXX™ Jobsite Table Saw
Bosch maintains that development of its professional table saw product respects other companies’ patents and represents a new and unique technology in the construction market. However, based on the current legal proceedings at the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), Robert Bosch Tool Corporation will be required to stop sales of the REAXXTM Table Saw on March 27, 2017, unless the ITC ruling is overturned. This sales hold will be in place until Bosch can clarify next steps through the ITC appeal process.
Distributors who have previously purchased REAXXTM table saws from Bosch are not impacted by the ITC order and can continue to market and sell REAXXTM table saws to end users.
Bosch will continue to provide distributors and end users with service/repair and support for REAXXTM table saws previously purchased, including the availability of replacement cartridges manufactured in the U.S., which are not subject to the ITC import ban.
We will continue to fight for our ability to sell REAXXTM in the future by appealing to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Background: On January 27, 2017, the ITC instituted a ban prohibiting the import of REAXXTM table saws into the U.S. There was a 60-day window in which the ruling could be overturned, but that window will soon close.
