Great saw for the money
I build decks for a living. I have used the porter cable lefty for years. Why its for leftys is beyond me. I cant ever go back to a right sided blade...this saw is perfect except for two things...A: the dust blowout is in the rear so it will fill your tool belt up with sawdust unless you lean forward to compensate...and B: the saw has a metal base that will bend if dropped...a magnesium base and front dust ejector would make this saw the top selling saw ever.

Nice Saw
Well I have had quite a few circular saws. I have bent the decks on them, wore the motors out, you name it. My father has a general contracting business, and I do home improvement jobs on the side, My dad gave me his old Bosch saw witch the cord needed replaced, but the saw was like brand new. I used it and fell in love with the bosch brand. When I got this saw it has awesome power, and is light to boot. The opposite sided blade made me a little hesitant at first but I think it was because the only thing I had used with that configuration was my cordless, I would buy this saw over and over. Love it.

Light and Solid
Ive always used a worm drive skil saw but I like the lighter weight and shorten length of these "left handed" saws. I cant imagine using a saw with the blade on the other side so this is one of a few options outside of worm drive.
The saw works great but isnt as stable as my mag77. When cutting precise lines it tends to be a bit more shaky but its definitely a great saw. Feels like it might perform better with a heavier blade like a dewalt blade rather than a light thin kerf blade. Comparable with the porter cable lefty saws..

This is one awsome saw
I purchased this saw based on other reviews I read here and I am so glad I did. The speed of the saw is faster than any one I have ever used. The blade on the left side is perfect for right handed people to be able to see your line when cutting without having to look around the saw. The only complaint that I did have was the frame on the saw was slightly kicked up, like it was dropped on the corner, but I was able to straighten it out halfway decent. other than that this saw slices through things like to butter.

I like it
As the price of replacement batteries goes up, I have been buying 110v tools instead. I have about 25 Bosch hand power tools in 110v ac, 18v dc, and 12v dc. Some of these are 15 years old or older and I have only had one problem ..... worn out brushes in a 110v power drill, an expected issue, If I didn't like Bosch so much, my power tools wouldn't all be blue like they are.

Take some getting used to
Bosch makes a powerful saw, this thing cuts great. For a right hander its awkward at first using a left handed saw. I had to change up the way I was used to driving the saw down the line. Didn't really like the switch up so I gave it to a buddy, bought the old style, I like it better.

the lock between the foot plate and the saw seems a little weak, but it didn't give out on me at all.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
