Answer: 
Rick,
I'm not sure whether a plastic storage case is available, however mine did not. Since I have dozens of storage cases stacked up and find that I do not use them. I have a power tool cabinet that I built that protects them much better and is easy to transport to the job site or roll around my shop.

Unfortunately not, Rick. And for a saw this 'pricey' (comparitively speaking), a case, even for a few dollars more, would offer some protection for this investment.

Answer: 
Joe, your intuition is on target. I just weighed mine and it clocks in at 11.0 lbs even. That's a shame to list misinformation like that (clearly a mistake), because the CS5 is considerably lighter than my previous saw (and a whole lot quieter, too). Hope this helps. It's a great tool.

Answer: 
Timmy,
The saw uses 100 Volt AC current. As advertised, it draws 15 amperes. So I would not recommend using it on a circuit that has many tools or smaller gauge wire on it.

Answer: 
Yes, I believe the blade's rotation is reversed but all you need to do is align the blade manufacturer's arrow with the saw's arrow indicating direction of rotation. The blade's label may be facing inward (unreadable when mounted), but it will work just the same as long as its intended rotation direction aligns with saw's.

Answer: 
Richard, thanks for your response.
I did flip my new blade on my left-hand drive saw, and it works just fine. I guess the rule of thumb is right hand drive => counterclockwise, left hand drive => counterclockwise. I just wasn't sure if there was anything more complicated, and it seems not to be the case.

Answer: 
The blade on either left or right are mounted the same. That's to say, all circular saws cut 'up' with the teeth of the blade pointing upwards and entering the work piece from the bottom. And as for the 'clockwise rotation of the blade', that just depends on which side of the saw you're looking at.

Thank you for your question. When installing a blade on the CS5, Make sure the saw teeth and arrow on the blade point in the same direction as the arrow
on the lower guard.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
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. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 4, 2012
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY POWERFUL TOOL IN A GOOD PRICE THE SAW IS VERY POWERFUL AND MORE THAN I EXPECT, I LOVE IT! January 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 August 6, 2014
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great saw I bought this saw to replace my heavier worm drive saws that I always use at work. I wanted a smaller, lighter saw for everyday use. I specially like the blade on the left side giving me a clear view of the cut line. The motor is strong and the blade that comes with it cuts wood like slicing butter. I should of bought this saw a long time ago. It would have been nice if bosch threw in a carrying case or bag. September 11, 2013
