1.”The additional cost to manufacturers to implement this technology is estimated to be between $150-$200 per product, an amount that will be passed on to the consumer,” said the Power Tool Institute.
2. The Power Tool Institute is claiming that adding the saw stop technology will increase the price per product for the consumer by between $150-$200 .
3. This claim is called a consequential claim.
4. The claim from the Power Tool Institute is relevant for anyone planning on buying a product with the safer saw technology. The large increase of cost could be enough to persuade a working man to buy a less safe saw and be more carefull with it, instead of paying extra. The increased cost is a reasonable argument to why the technology should not be implemented, since many working men can not afford to spend the extra cash. A consumers lack of interest in paying more makes the Power Tool Institutes’ claim an effective argument against mandatory saw stop technology.
