Great woodworking tool/machine
By JRP from Los Angeles, CA on August 11, 2012
I'm very pleased having this unit because I'm a right-handed & the first one I bought was a corded 7-1/2 circular saw where the blade is on the right side. I never realized what I've been missing until I got this one. Now, I can closely watch my cutting. All parts seems made heavy duty, hence it whole unit is heavy. Also, this has an oil reservoir like a car, hence needing oil change maintenance at certain points of usage. No wonder with proper maintenance, this can definitely outlast all other circular saw that are oil-free. Because the blade is 8-1/4, I can cut thicker woods and stacked plywoods.

The engine is very robust and heavy duty indeed plus it has the capacity to cut bevels up to 60 degrees. Want to cut deeper? All you have to do is buy and attach the Prazi beam cutter perfectly fitting to this unit. This will extend your cutting ability up to 12 inches deep and you still keep enjoying the same circular saw accessories like rail and guides. In my opinion, this one really is the best deal in getting things done at a very practical cost.

8-1/4" blade, heavy-duty, robust engine, would last a lifetime, can be retro-fitted with Prazi (chain saw) beam cutter and you still keep enjoying to use the rest of accessories.
No plastic case. You've got to buy the regular canvass tool bag from Boschtools if you want to give extra protection for this investment. I molded my own polymer plastic case.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
