Bosch PKS 18 LI 18v Cordless Circular Saw 150mm
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
The Bosch Power4all Tool range is a range of tools you can buy knowing that batteries are compatible with all tools in the range providing they are of the same voltage. eg 18v fits 18v, 12v (10.8v) fits 12v (10.8v) etc. Please also note that 10.8v is compatible with 12v & vice versa as it is just a name change.
Power4all has many advantages not least the fact that once you have a tool with a few batteries then there is no need to buy the more expensive versions with battery & charger, you can just go ahead & buy the much cheaper no battery versions!
So remember Power4all signifies complete battery compatibility throughout the range. There is however, one caveat to this, some of the very first older chargers will not charge the very latest batteries & a battery charger upgrade will be required if you have a first generation charger. All batteries fit all tools however.

I like a cord-free circular saw - my first. Good power for domestic use - but if you want a second battery check the price before you commit. I've always found the cutting guides poorly designed to follow a marked line and the one supplied on this saw does nothing to improve that
Knew what I wanted and a quick search brought me to tooled-up.com was easy to configure the extras I wanted and order would recommend them to anyone
Item was as ordered but was very late delivery due to coronavirus situation. Also item was delivered to the wrong address. The owner recognised my address and drove it round.
Powerful, easy to use, excellent battery life, battery will keep its charge for well over a year, amazing cut quality, just keep it fitted with a sharp blade and it will do everything you need. It's a shame you need to buy the charger etc. separately. Spare blades difficult to find but always fit a genuine bosch or the battery efficiency suffers. Awesome tool!
I added the saw to an existing battery - it must be far safer to use this saw without a cable! Great power and safety features for a non-professional. Great all round.
Typical bosch product. A big bonus is the transferability of the battery pack across the range.
Very easy to use. cuts plywood and mdf fast and accurately. ideal for the smaller jobs, especially where there is no mains power.
First class service, delivered very quickly and and very well packaged. Great little circular saw, the battery seems to last for ages. I was a bit concerned about ordering from here after reading some of the reviews, but it was faultless and i am very happy i did. Thankyou tooled up.Com
Fits perfectly into the bosch power4all family and performs as well as you would expect for a cordless bosch tool,a really good all rounder, which for my purposes it's perfect, efficient, quiet (relatively) and well designed for a right handed person to use all day long, it seems to run forever on one charge, if i really tried to fault it, i couldn't, what more can i say - a great buy!
Bought this item to replace a performance power 240v circular saw which had seen better days. Was a bit sceptical about it being battery powered, but being an owner of the bosch power4all psb 18 li-2 18v cordless 2 speed combi drill it made sense to stick to a product that used the same battery pack as my drill and not buy into another battery system. after receiving the saw i opened the box as was a tad disheartened as it looked and felt like a toy in comparison to my previous saw, which weight a ton. the depth gauges and mitre gage are easy to adjust, the saw comes with a parallel guide. the saw is light in the hand and clearly well built, very comfortable grip and easy to use trigger. Made a few practice cuts into some scrap 40mm batons, which it became very clear that this saw was indeed no toy and sliced through the wood with easy and with very little noise from the saw itself. the cuts were accurate and clean, my only gripe with the saw was the supplied balde was only 18 teeth, for the project i`ll be using it for, i need a finer cut, but finding blades of 150mm is a bit scarce. i can highly recommend this saw and i cant fault the service provided by tooledup.Com
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Are spare blades available for this saw, which is great by the way, because I cannot find any and Bosch has ignored my requests? (I'm looking for the thin kerf blades as developed for and supplied with this item.) Many thanks in anticipation of your help. Hoping that you are all keeping well in these awful times I send best regards, Gee.
A : Hi Gee, strangely enough the stock blade doesn't appear to be available for purchase separately at the present time. There is a Bosch standard 150mm 16mm bore blade available but if you're looking for the cordless types the options are a bit more limited - in fact we don't currently stock anything with these exact specifications as it seems that 10mm is a more common bore size for cordless machines. We do stock a few with larger bores (which you could use with a reducing washer) but the cordless variants in this spec are all for cutting metal... Bosch should be able to supply the original blade through their spares & repairs service but I know the whole home and garden market is struggling with unprecedented demand at the moment so it may be taking them longer than usual to respond?
