The GKS 18 V-LI saw is part of the Bosch 18V Li-Ion family. It is very powerful and gives you the freedom to cut wherever needed without the restriction of a power cable. It cuts to a maximum depth of 52mm at 90° and 40mm at 45°. The thin kerf TCT blade draws less power from the machine with less waste than a thicker kerf blade to ensure quick progress through the material. Robust and compact with soft grip handles and a strong baseplate to ensure easy handling.
As part of the Bosch 18V professional Li-Ion family of tools, it is supplied as a body only so that you can utilise batteries from the other tools in the family. Bosch Li-Ion battery technology is premium quality for the best possible battery life and runtime; tool and battery talk to each other as fitted with electronic cell protection (ECP).
Note: Bosch Wireless Batteries are not suitable for use with this machine.
Supplied with L-Boxx 238 storage case and L-Boxx inlay.

Lovely sawThis is a nicely made saw, good balance and easy to use. If you buy one don't forget to check that the base and blade are square to each other. There is a little grub screw near the angle scale. Mine was away off when it arrived, not a problem, just remember to check it :-)

Powerful and SmoothVery easy to use, extremely powerful (almost frighteningly so), and cuts very tidily and accurately. The only thing I can fault is the box seems a bit flimsier than other Bosch Professional products, so not sure how long it'll be before I crack it (the other product boxes can take quite a bit of abuse).

Great product from BoschYou're pretty safe with Bosch products, whatever they are, and this is no exception. It's well built and is yet another product that does what it says on the tin. To clarify what you get in the box with this product, since that's been a query in another review...

good bit of kitI've been using this saw onsite now for about the last year and a half and I can safely say that it has stood upto everything that I have thrown at it. Was unsure of the 18v power compared to 240v but its never been an issue, even cut through 38mm solid wood worktop! Overall, very impressed.
