Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice piece of kit First impressions of this saw are all good. For the price it is a powerful and comparatively light unit. It has good balance and, so far,the robustness looks good. The supplied blade is certainly doing a good job too, The saw and blades first job was cutting to maximum depth in oak sleepers - each needing 2 'blind' cuts and then finish off with a hand saw - it is certainly a step up from my old 1200w B&D 'professional' unit, mind you that did last 20+ years, so that's the challenge for Bosch! I deliberately went for the 1600w unit and am glad I have the additional power against the 'base' 1400w for this model, even though this is also a highly recommended saw on other comparison sites. It will be interesting to see how long blades last - they are getting thinner nowerdays so tips must be working harder. The on-line registration for the 3 year warranty went flawlessly too.

CAn you confirm if this is the new model GKS65 GCE

I just want to check this is the new version which "properly" fits the FSN guide rail system. Thanks
Asked by: SelfBuildMan
Hi, sorry no this is the older model 'GKS 65' as opposed to the new model 'GKS 65 GCE', so this one is supplied with a parallel guide only and is not compatible with the new FSN guide rail system. The new GKS 65 GCE is available on the market generally but is not currently in the Screwfix range.
