Bosch Professional GKS 18 V – LI Cordless Circular Saw (without Battery and Charger), L – Boxx

CoolPack Technology

A CoolPack battery from Bosch constantly dissipates any heat outwards due to its special housing geometry with cooling fins. As a result, it remains considerably cooler inside than conventional batteries and remains operational over the entire runtime.

Electronic Cell Protection

To protect against battery damage due to overloading, overheating or total discharge, the tool is supplied with CoolPack batteries featuring Electronic Cell Protection (ECP). ECP, along with CoolPack cooling technology, considerably extends battery lifetime.

Bosch 18 V Battery Compatibility

Batteries can be chosen for longer runtime or lower weight, according to preference, and the tool is compatible with all 18 V, 1.5 to 6.0 Ah units – including Wireless and EneRacer.

Lithium Ion Technology

The Bosch Li-ion batteries supplied with this tool use the latest technology to maximise productivity and avoid trouble. Their advantages include fast charging, which means that a spare battery can typically be charged to at least 80 per cent before you exhaust the one on your tool.

    Golden Review Award: 17 From Our UsersFr mich als “Bastler” hat die Sge gengend Power und die Verarbeitung passt. Gut ist sie passt noch auf meine alten Schienen (FSN70). Einzig das Blatt ist nicht so toll und gerade wenn die Kraft ein wenig nach lsst wird der Schnitt unsauber. Ein neues Blatt hat aber sofort geholfen.

    Golden Review Award: 42 From Our UsersMit einem entsprechendem Sgeblatt (Makita Specialized for Cordless) steht die Sge einer netzbetriebenen kaum nach. Wichtig ist wirklich ein dnnes Sgeblatt, sonst verballert man Leistung und Akkukapazitt in einem unntig breiten Schnitt. Beachtet man das kann man mit der Sge hervorragend und sehr lange arbeiten. Ich habe es auch bei intensivsten gebrauch noch nicht geschafft einen Akku leer zu sgen bevor der vorherige wieder aufgeladen war.
    Rundum zufrieden. Einzig der Sgeblattschutz aus Plastik mutet etwas billig und wackelig an – erfllt allerdings auch seinen Zweck.

    Golden Review Award: 16 From Our UsersGeiles Teil.
    Habe nur Profi Werkzeug, Die GKS ergnzt es.
    Habe 18v 4,0Ah, Akkubohrschrauber, Stichsge, Bohrhammer, Trennschleifer und einiges mehr.
    Alles blaue Serie, kann’s nur empfehlen.
    Akkubohrschrauber war mit Ladegert und 2 Akku’s 4,0Ah, passt auch an alle anderen 18V Gerte.
    Geil, keine Kabel, Akku nach 20 min wieder voll und der zweite ist noch am arbeiten. Also, ich empfehle: ein Gert mit 2 Akku’s und Ladegert kaufen und dann Stck fr Stck Sologerte nachkaufen.
    Bemerkung: Wer professioneller Handwerker ist, also seinen Lebensunterhalt damit verdient, sollte rechnen. Jedem Semipro, also im Handwerk zu Hause aber nicht abhngig kann ich nur die gesamte 18v Linie empfehlen. Es ist halt Profiwerkzeug und etwas teurer aber mit den
    Li-Ionen Akku’s auch eine lngere Haltbarkeit, weil, kein Memory und immer bereit.
    Gerade fr Wohneigentumbesitzer, es ist immer was zu bohren, sgen, sgen, etc.

    Bought to replace existing saw that managed to last five years of heavy duty use. Tremendous bit of kit that’s cut thousands of pressure treated joists, posts and beams.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersHaving previously owned circular saws which were fiddly and frankly dangerous to use, I finally decided to get this one as I had a job which needed it.

    I’ve got other Bosch 18v tools so I didn’t need to get the battery with it, which saved a fair bit of money. I did opt for the LBOXX case though. This was a good idea as it keeps the saw from getting damaged in the workshop. The LBOXX also clicks into my other LBOXX’s – there’s tidy!

    The saw is light and powerful – even when cutting through 18mm hardwood ply at an angle. There’s also the advantage that you don’t have a cable dangling which could get accidentally cut or snag.

    I’d thoroughly recommend this saw – five stars!

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersHello Amazon shoppers, I finally bit the bullet and bought this saw. It’s been in my wish list for a while but I couldn’t justify buying it while my other saw was still working.
    I am a left-handed person who was sick of getting sawdust blown in my face from my right handed saw but I wss too tight to buy this one. My old one packed in so I purchased this one and the price was right.

    It’s a good little trim saw which uses the 18v batteries from Bosch. It will also use the wireless batteries from Bosch but you lose about 10mm off the cutting capacity. So on a trim saw which has a limited amount of cutting depth that can be the difference between being able to use it or not. Cutting plywood, MDF, sheet material not a problem. The same with dimensional timber just watch the battery life as it tends to bog down when you get to one bar.

    This saw is not for everyone and there is a right handed saw available to buy in the range. However for me i am very pleased with the saw and very pleased not to have sawdust in my face every cut.

    Cheers Joe

    Die Kreissge macht schon was her, der einzige Strfaktor ist meiner Meinung nach die Schutzhaube aus Plastik, da htte man schonmal etwas Metall fr hernehmen knnen. Ansonsten uneingeschrnkte Kaufempfehlung, krftig und kompakt.

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersDie Sge macht einen super Eindruck, ist Qualitativ verarbeitet und liegt gut in der Hand. ALLERDINGS …. waren in meinem Lieferumfang ein zu langer Innensechskantschlssel welcher nicht an der Maschine untergebracht werden kann UND die Befestigungsschraube fr fr den Staubsaugeradapter war nicht dabei.

    Wenn ich BOSCH BLAU bestelle dann will ich BOSCH BLAU aber VOLLZHLIG bitte wenn schon sonst nichts in der Box ist.

    I have recently been replacing my old green Bosch for the blue professional and have loved them. I’ve yet to use this saw much but it’s so much better than my green one. It’s more powerful and more accurate and I’m looking forward to when I have a proper project to use it on.

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersIn itself this product is good, you get the circular saw, the l-boxx, a blade and the necessary tool to adjust and swap blades. You will need some meaty batteries to use this for all but the smallest of projects. I am not a profesional user of this type of power tool, but as I had recieved as a Gift a Bosch drill and Impact driver in the past and found them very reliable. As my need for a circular saw is occasional, but invariably in a location where mains power is a problem I thought I would add this product to the set and initially use the batteries from my existing products! My first task with this was to cut a 3.9m scaffold board in half along its length, this flattened both the 1.5Ah batteries supplied with my other tools, so I would suggest anyone who does not already have them to get at least a couple of 5ah batteries to go with this saw if you wish to use it for any serious work

    Golden Review Award: 5 From Our UsersI have a lot of Bosch stuff and love it. This saw has more grunt than I expected and is easy to keep straight even without a guide. The speed is slower than the bigger saws, so it’s not as fast to cut, but this is obviously due to the gearing needed to get the torque, which absolutely fine.
    I love the smaller depth of cut, lightness, and ease of handling for cutting boards compared to my larger 18v saw, which by comparison now feels like overkill, and the wrong tool for most board cutting jobs.
    I’ve done a couple of floors with this saw now, and a few other jobs, it chews through 19mm ply easily enough (if kept straight. I boarded a loft with it last year, including cutting various packing pieces, and didn’t use my 18V saw at all – a hand saw proved just as easy as the 18V saw for the odd piece that was too thick for this saw.
    Re battery life, this is always a bit subjective, but I use 2.5 and 3.0AH batteries, the ones larger than this are the bigger form factor which I don’t like, and i find 2 batteries is fine – one to charge whilst using the other more than keeps up with the rate I can cut and fit.

    Well made, great performance from a 4ah battery but…..scrap the supplied fence – shame on you Bosch for having the cheek to put this with your ‘professional’ series. Really poor and let’s the side down on what is a great price of cordless kit.
    Goes through oak like butter.

    Purchased for a garden project but I suspect I’ll find some more reasons to use it.

    I didn’t want a corded version and I already had a Bosch 18v Pro drill so it made sense to go for this machine.
    There are a few versions that are similar but this one is a little more powerful (no load speed) and has the slot in the base for a guide rail. It’s also from the current model range, replacing the GSK 18v-57.

    Overall I’m really impressed with this saw, it’s done everything I’ve asked of it so far without complaining. It does slow a little on think cuts but goes through sheet stock like a portable knife through butter. Get one!

    It’s worth noting that this is technically a left hand saw (blade on the left) but as I’ve only ever use saws in this config it’s not a problem for me. It means that if you are right handed your right hand will be on the main grip (pulling the trigger) and your left will be over the top of the blade on the auxiliary handle.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersDie Akku-Handkreissge liegt perfekt in der Hand. Mit einem 6AH Akku hat man sehr viel Spa und kann ohne lstiges Kabel alle Hobbyprojekte problemlos lsen. Ich nutze zustzlich einen Ersatzakku mit ebenfalls 6AH, somit kann man ohne Zeitverlust an die Projekte gehen und getrost mehrere Stunden arbeiten.

    Die Winkeleinstellungen habe ich in der Praxis noch nicht genutzt, aber wie immer lsst sich alles bei Bosch Professional super leicht einstellen. Die Schnitttiefe ist sehr schnell und kinderleicht einzustellen. Einfach nach super diese Maschine.

    Je mehr Produkte ich vom Akku-System von Bosch Professional habe desto mehr werde ich Fan. Weiter so.

    After using for a while a Makita circular saw (borrowed from a friend for several of my projects), I realized that I have to look especially for a saw with left-sided position of the saw blade (I’m much more comfortable if I see the blade while I’m using the saw). In a nearby hardware store this was the only one that did suit my needs. So I ordered it on Amazon. I just replaced the stock blade with a Makita one designed for battery powered saws (as it was recommended by others here) and the results are beyond my expectations. Combined with two 5 Ah batteries, now the saw can be used almost continuously (the charge time of an empty battery is similar with the working time of a charged one in my case)

    I bought this to replace a corded saw which always felt out of control. This saw has a brake which my last saw didn’t have and is left handed which allows me to see where I’m cutting (last saw was right handed and awkward to follow a line). To be honest I have felt like a professional since the first cut, I am in total control and the brake is fantastic. As for battery life I layer a deck (6x4m) and the battery (4Ah)was still on 3 leds and the blade was as good as new. Having taken advice from another review I bought a matika 160mm 40 teeth and thr finished cut was perfect, the supplied blade was good but left a rougher finish. I’d recommend this saw to anyone replacing their old saw I only wish I’d thrown away my old saw years ago.
