Easy handling and control in a wide variety of materials
Thanks to its compact construction and ergonomic design, the PKS 18 LI cordless circular saw is very easy to use. The bow-shaped handle and second handle at the front of the tool make this hand-held circular saw particularly precise and safe to operate. This gives DIYers complete control over the tool at all times, allowing them to focus on the sawing task at hand and produce clean, accurate cuts. Your cutting accuracy is also improved by CutControl, a transparent extension with the cutting line marked on it that can be folded out from the front of the tool, along with the markings on the base plate for 90 and 45 degree angles. Besides these advantages, the cutting depth and mitre angle up to 45 degrees can be adjusted quickly and conveniently. Even more performance is provided by the integrated Bosch Syneon Chip, which delivers more runtime per battery charge.

The PKS 18 LI cordless circular saw stands out from the competition thanks to its easy handling. Its excellent performance in this respect derives from the compact construction and ergonomic design of the tool. This allows the user to focus on the sawing task at hand and produce clean, accurate cuts. Bosch’s tried-and-tested CutControl function helps you to guide the saw accurately along a marked cutting line of 90 or 45 degrees. The PKS 18 LI also lets you conveniently and rapidly adjust the cutting depth and mitre angle up to 45 degrees. The intelligent Syneon Chip also controls the perfect interaction between lithium-ion battery, powerful motor and robust gearbox.
The PKS 18 LI cordless circular saw from Bosch is above all suitable for medium-duty sawing applications such as cutting skirting boards, laminate and square timber to length and trimming panelling material for roofing or interior fitting. The maximum cutting capacity is 48 mm, while for mitre cuts up to 45 degrees this figure is 36 mm. The durable saw blade, specially developed for cordless circular saws, allows you to produce clean and accurate results in your work. Thanks to the spindle lock, the saw blades are quick and easy to change.
The PKS 18 LI hand-held circular saw is compatible with Bosch’s 18 V battery system. This means more flexibility for the user because the 18 V lithium-ion battery can be used in a range of Bosch’s gardening and DIY tools in the same voltage class, such as cordless drill drivers, jigsaws, hedge clippers and grass trimmers. The battery can then be recharged using the enclosed charger. The PKS 18 LI is also equipped with a safety switch with a double-sided lock-off function, which prevents the saw from being turned on unintentionally.
The PKS 18 LI cordless circular saw from Bosch is equipped with a powerful removable battery pack with lithium-ion technology and a capacity of 2.5 Ah. This means that the battery will neither exhibit memory effect, reducing the battery capacity, nor self-discharge, with the result that the PKS 18 LI is ready for operation at any given moment, even if the battery has not been charged for a long time. The cordless circular saw is also equipped with a fixed connection for dust extraction which is suitable for hoses with a diameter of 35 mm.
