Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hague So far, so good
Limited use so far, but out of the box was impressed with light weight, solid feel, clutch to prevent blade binding and heavy duty base plate. I like the blade/cutline visibility for right-handed users. I'm hoping Bosch quality will translate into long tool life. Seems plenty powerful in my limited applications to date.
Only issue is what to do with saw when not in use as there is no storage box or bag included with saw. Can I even buy a generic storage bag for circular saws? I've never noticed/looked for one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TMAC Really good quality
Eats up wood. Quality construction. A little heavy, but whatever. When it breaks on a job I will buy another one. Only headache is that it takes about a month for the blade to stop spinning. Again...whatever. It works great

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TimthePalletMan Awesome!
My wife gave me this saw as a Valentines day gift to upgrade from a rather cheap cordless saw. The difference was night and day! This saw is more than capable of handling anything I throw at it, cutting through wood as though it was butter. The depth adjustment is smooth and quick, blade changes are a snap, and it comes with a great blade for my purposes to boot. I also love that the blade is on the left, that makes for a much easier cut every time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by woodcraftcraig This saw amazes me even time I use it!
I bought this saw after my Milwaukee puked after 3 years . This saw is so much better than any circular saw I have ever owned, the 6400 rpm doesn't bigat all. I have just finished my 3rd Butcher block top, and it blazes though 1-3/4" hard maple. I have been using it for about six months and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Experienced Makita left hand blade circular saw
Very hard to find a quality left hand bladed circular saw. This is a good saw, not the quality of my 25 year old Porter Cable but probably the best of what is available now. Would be nice if they were able to make this saw a little lighter.
