My only negatives are minor...
1. The blade it comes with is carbide, but for framing. I switched to a 40 tooth Freud as I do with all my saws. The stock blade has a tendency to kick back, while the Freud will not. P.S. the blade goes on backwards for left-blade saws. IE: the Bosch blade is installed with logo facing outward, but Freud and other blades install with the logo facing inward.
2. The saw is a little heavier than a 6-1/2" circular saw, but is has more power too. I chose this saw over the smaller versions for its ability to perform standard framing cuts. I think it weighs about 10 lbs.
3. There is no safety switch. You know that little button you depress before you can start the saw? The Bosch doesn't have one. I never cock the blade gaurd back with a pencil, so it's not an issue for me. Just be careful.
The construction is robust, and fit and finish is good. It comes with some nice features like an onboard blade wrench, and a tool-free spindle lock. Very Nice.
UPDATE; I've been using the saw daily now for 2 months and I really like cutting with it. I'm a deck builder and this is a primary tool for me, it's held up well so far.
UPDATE; 6 months in of daily abuse and the saw has held up pretty nice. I did bend the foot some in a fall but it's pounded flat now and is cutting fine.
UPDATE; 9 months in and all I can say is that the saw is holding up really well. The plate bevel is still a bit tough to square up and I'd like to find one with an electric brake. Otherwise, great quality saw that has seen tons of use and abuse and stood its ground.
One real complaint; when you're cutting right-handed, the dust is directed right into your shoes and nailbags. The blade-left saw doesn't have a Bosch dust chute accessory available, and this saw really needs one. When you're cutting a post from right to left, the dust is projected straight up, into your face and eyes. Bosch needs a dust chute for the CS-5.Read more ›

I'm a professional builder. I tried this saw only due to the fact it was left handed. What a mistake that was. First off, the dust port ejects right in your pants. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Chris Priore
