Bosch GKS 190 190mm Professional Circular Saw 240V
I have always previously borrowed my dads circular saw and thought it was about time I bought one of my own. After a bit of research (and a bit bias towards Bosch) I landed on this one. Screwfix had it in stock so ordered online to collect in store the same day. It is surprisingly light and easy to handle compared to the one I had previously used. Most of the brands around or lower priced than this one don't have the same cutting depth. The depth & angle adjustments are easily done due to quick release levers and corresponding numerical values so that you know exactly where it has been set. It comes in a plastic carry case with room for spare saw blades and other accessories. Overall.... Very impressed.

Great Power for Size
Superb saw, great power. The base plate is a little cheap though. Bosch claims that all saws with a 'G' prefix are compatible with their guide rails. However, the plate is not grooved, so will not fit the guide.
If greater accuracy is required I would recommend spending a bit more and going for the GKS 65, but this is great at ripping down large sheets.

excellent bit of kit
I bought this after using the one I had which i bought very cheap and not up to the job I was doing. This is excellent, cuts cleanly and fast. it proves you get what you pay for so don't buy cheap they are definitely inferior. I would recommend this to everyone.
