Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best left-hand blade circular saw able to be found. Now that Black and Decker owns and manufacturers most of the power tools on the market, it is difficult to find what a woodworker/contractor wants. I bought the Bosch because it was only one of the four manufacturers that I found that make a left-hand blade circular saw. And because of previous purchases I knew what I hoped was the quality. It is an excellent tool with fair good accuracy and lots of power. Only two things that I had issues with. First the trigger switch is quite strong and for one with moderate arthritis it is difficult. Secondly, it does not have a very good exhaust port for sawdust. In both cases my old Porter Cable was much better. Only one other issue: it is about 8 ounces heavier than advertised. Alas, Porter Cable is now owned by B&D and the quality is not very good... and they don't make one anymore. The Bosch is the way to go!! October 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good saw Bosch needs to sell a dust collection attachment for this unit like the one used on the CS10. January 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Bosch CS5 circular saw delivers a quality product we've come to expect from Bosch Tools. I was intrigued by the Left-blade design on this saw. With as much sawdust that any circular saw kicks up, I know the importance of a clear line of sight for both safety and accuracy. The Bosch CS5 has a 'gentle' start, a plus for fatigued wrists, and the 15 amp motor runs much quieter than my old 12 amp. When making cross-cuts using a speed square, the advantage of the left-blade design becomes apparent--since the blade is closer to the square, all important clamping can be done closer to the cut line without getting in the way. The anti-snag lower guard allows truly one handed operation during a cut. One drawback though; the left-blade design requires the saw dust port to be on the left side, so expect a tool belt full of sawdust. And, a power tool of this caliber & price should come with a case. Overall, I'm very pleased with the features and performance of the Bosch CS5. September 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greatest features available Saw was purchased as gift for my son who related his satisfaction with one owned by a friend. When questioned regarding his satisfaction with his gift, he couldn't praise the features enough -- especially the ability to see the line to be cut because of the locatiin of the blade for right-handed woodworkers! The price of this saw is notably higher than other brands, but well worth the price difference. June 11, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.
