If you’ve been hesitating to jump into the Bosch 36V Litheon line because you’re wondering where they’re taking the line, your wait may be (almost) over. At the IBS recently, Bosch announced a couple of 36V Litheon line additions, including this 6-1/2″ circ saw. Hammerdrills aside, we may finally have a way to really compare all the high-voltage li-ion cordless systems — because nothing benefits from high-voltage battery power like a circ saw.
The new saw spins at 4,000 RPM, claims a 26% longer runtime than its closest competitor, and features a 50-degree bevel capacity. Keeping in mind why you’d want to cut the cord on your circ saw, Bosch thoughtfully added an integrated rafter hook.
You’ll recall that Bosch’s Litheon 36V line is home to their “Flexible Power System” (FPS) which gives you the option of using either a “SlimPack” 1.3 Ah battery or a 2.0 Ah “FatPack” — choosing between light weight or long runtime. We’re guessing you’ll choose the FatPack for this application.
We’ll have pricing information on this for you when it gets closer to shelves.
