Excellent circular power tool
I have purchased many Bosch tools and white goods, I am yet to be disappointed and this is no exception because yet again it's a highly efficient tool. It is not an introduction DIY tool as I use this specifically for my property maintenance business and delivers exact clean cuts, it cuts through MDF easily and this is because of the circular blade and the powerful 1400 watt motor.
The hand grip is also important, I was cutting through CLS timber when I got to the end which was my fault, the tool kicked back, the tool totally protected me, I stopped immediately and I still had full control over the tool, luckily the blade was not damaged. It is a sturdy piece of kit. I also have the Bosch Professional GWS24230LVI 9-inch/ 230mm 240V Anti-Vibration Angle Grinder, another tool if you require the best safest 9" angle grinder on the current market. When replacing blades do invest in Bosch replacement ones only, the rest are a waste of money and you will end up replacing with a genuine Bosch one, so you save nothing. I am not a Bosch representative but I am tired of second rate rubbish on the market and other than Dewalt or some Makita tools Bosch is very reliable and do last, well worth the money and not expensive, but do shop around and read reviews.

Can't do better
A friend of mine used this saw to cut sleepers for landscaping project after his chainsaw was stolen. Didn't miss a beat even through damp wood. Got one myself and is one of the best buys I've made. Great carry case too.

As a plumber by trade I have settled for a store own brand in the past as I don't regularly need such a tool. Due to recent heavy use my "cheaper" unit gave up the ghost. Got the Bosch as a bit of a luxury item. So glad I did as this tool performs exceptionally well. I have found myself using the saw for things that I used other tools for. The blade supplied is surprisingly good. Excellent middle of the range tool for the serious DIYer or professional that needs good quality performance.
