The Bosch CCS180 18-Volt professional cordless lithium-ion circular saw uses 6-1/2-inch blades, and it has the capacity to cut through 2-inch thick material at 90 degrees and capacity to cut through 1-9/16-inch thick material at a 45-degree bevel. This saw has a blade-left design to allow the easiest view of cut line when saw's main handle is held in right hand. Other features include an exclusive anti-snag lower guard for easing into the work piece, a 50-degree bevel range that allows wide range of bevel applications, a spindle lock for fast and easy blade changes, and easy-to-read depth-of-cut and bevel scales. The saw has heavy-duty aluminum foot and upper guard for enhanced durability on the toughest jobsites. An electronic brake stops the blade quickly for reduced down time between repetitive cuts. Additional electronics features include Electronic Motor Protection (EMP), which protects the motor against overload and ensures a long lifetime, and the Bosch Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) system, which protects the battery (sold separately) against overload, overheating and deep discharge. Battery and charger sold separately.
