What is the input power for this (Bosch 7-1/4 in. 15-Amp Circular Saw)

Please excuse the silly question, but since this is a left blade saw, with clockwise rotation of the blade, can I just flip around a blade that shows

a counterclockwise arrow?

15-Amp 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily gets the job done! I have used my Christmas gift many time already and I am both, pleased in the quality, and impressed with the ergonomics, safety features, and how durable (I will test it!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I purchased this saw to replace a 32-year old Black and Decker. Granted - that's like comparing a 1980 Chevy Vega to a 2013 Chevy Cruze, but the difference is huge. The trigger mechanism is easy to use, so are the saw blade height and angle adjustments. It has a great guide in front to show the kerf of your cut and has a very good anti-kickback mechanism. Its motor is also comparatively quiet. It is also has a left side blade, which is great for me because I am left handed - that may be a big consideration for the majority of people who are right handed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I. Have used this saw to redo a bathroom and it has performed flawlessly. I have used it for framing and trim, and it cut through 2x4s effortlessly and makes nice smooth cuts through trim. The left blade design is an awesome feature and this saw comes with a blade which is a great blade. I would definitely recommend this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool and Design I bought this saw since I couldn't easily move my table saw to a remote cabinet job. I was very impressed with the smoothness and quality of the saw. I big plus using a circular saw with an edge guide is the left-sided blade. I'm very happy with the comfort and function of this tool and would highly recommend it.
