Tough little home saw
I have dropped, thrown (possibly unintentionally), banged about and abused the living daylights out of my saw. I've had it for about 4 years now and have used it to build gates, doors, repair decking, cut firewood and most things in between. If you are cutting large thick hardwood you would be better off getting a larger powered saw. This handles most home jobs just fine though and is pretty nicely priced for what it is. My bearings have finely started to become noisy which is surprising given the beating it's taken. Would buy again
Great machine for pricepoint and small DIY jobs.
Building a cubby for the kids and couldn't bring myself to haul the monolithic (now presumably antique) Aus-made Black and Decker out of the shed for the small amount of cutting required. I also wasn't in the mood for much hand-sawing (who is?), so we purchased the Bosch from Bunnings.
Did a great job on the joists, noggins etc. Light enough but still firm to handle and easy to stay fairly accurate. Also simple and intuitive when it comes to adjusting settings (eg cutting depth). I would say to people to put the appropriate blade in for the...
Bosch DIY only not suitable for hard work
over the last 4 years I have burnt out / bearing failure 2 of these I am looking at getting a bigger and stronger unit maybe 235mm 2000w range , only positives I can give this for light work its easy to handle and very very accurate
I do a lot of ripping work and saw can working hard for over an hour so for DIY buy the bosch but but but for hard work look somewhere else
Almost identical to a Skilsaw (died after 40 years) this saw made simple work of my kitchen benchtop, shelving work, 3ply, etc. (using the correct blades and procedure). Good price and easy to find a retailer. Nothing fancy in this unit, but powerful enough to do its job well and clean.
Great Little Saw
I returned the Ozito circular saw that was a piece of junk and got a Bosch 1500 watt 184mm saw from Bunnings. It's well balanced, seems solidly made and easy to use, it cuts well and the cuts are very smooth, for the price I couldn't be happier. It only cost $30.00 more than the Ozito so it was well worth it.
Questions & Answers
how to change blade cant lock the blade it spin around?
Top of the T bar which you grip with your left hand as you saw, there is a red button to the right which should be visible. Press that down and then rotate the saw blade until it clicks into position. You'll feel it click in.
