      The PKS 55 A hand-held circular saw from Bosch

      The PKS 55 A hand-held circular saw from Bosch is equipped with a powerful motor with 1200 watt performance. This supports all common sawing applications with cutting depths of up to 55 mm in wood. The CleanSystem Box provides a clean working environment, collecting all of the sawing chips you produce and reducing the amount of dust. The circular saw is also equipped with CutControl for controlled freehand cuts. The clearly visible base plate markings and transparent, folding extension help you to guide the tool when making standard and mitre cuts, allowing you to follow the cutting line exactly.

      Adjust the cutting depth with accuracy

      The PKS 55 A hand-held circular saw is equipped with a powerful 1200 watt motor.

      The hand-held circular saw is equipped with a high-quality Speedline Wood saw blade – one of the fastest blades in the market. This tool can use circular saw blades with a nominal diameter of 160 mm. DIYers can adjust the cutting depth with complete accuracy up to 55 mm (at a 90 degree angle). Mitre cuts are quick and easy to carry out thanks to the quick-clamping lever. The tool is also compatible with Bosch’s GuideRail System, for exceptional precision in your sawing work: A groove integrated into the base plate of the saw together with the guide rail’s tongue ensures accurate, clean rip cutting. The guide rail is available as an option.

      Excellent handling and optimal control

      The PKS 55 A circular saw’s CleanSystem Box collects the wood chips produced while working.

      The compact design of the PKS 55 A ensures that the tool is comfortable to work with. With its optimised dimensions and weight, this saw handles superbly. In addition, the ergonomically shaped handle with large softgrip coverings, user-friendly features, clearly readable and precise depth adjustment and double-sided lock-off function provide optimal control over the operation of the tool. This hand-held circular saw can also be started up extremely smoothly thanks to the soft start feature.

      Work in safety and change the saw blades in moments

      The CutControl feature on the PKS 55 A circular saw lets you make controlled freehand cuts.

      The PKS 55 A hand-held circular saw is equipped with an integrated spindle lock, allowing the user to change the saw blade quickly and easily. Safety considerations have also been taken into account in the design of the tool. This saw is equipped with a safety switch with a lock-off function that can be operated from both sides of the tool. This prevents DIYers from accidentally switching on the hand-held circular saw. The sturdy aluminium hood covers the saw blade, providing additional protection.
