Hi Bob,

I am a professional end user and having some 10.8v gear already I'd really like an opportunity to test the 10.8v cordless Circular Saw.

If you need any information about me or the work I do, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Regards JM

 Hi Bob,

Have only ever used your 10.8v impact driver for kitchen carcus building but have never had the balls to use any of the other on the fear they wouldn't be man enough for the job!! I would defiantly like to have the opportunity to be proven wrong and put it through its places around the workshop and on site!

Thanks

Hi Bob I am a plumber who installs complete heating systems and complete bathrooms. A lot of my work involves lifting floor boards, cutting in new flooring, and the work is usually in confined spaces. I would like to test this new tool as looking at the design it looks suitable for confined areas, and already being the owner of a Bosch cordless circular saw I would like to compare the operation. I also use a variety of your 10,8 v tools and would like to see how the battery life compares to the others. With the variety and quantity of work I undertake I feel I would be able to put it through its paces. Many thanks Aaron

 Hi Bob,
I'm an Electrical and Maintenance engineer for the NHS and do a lot of small and large woodwork jobs including making cupboards for fuse boards etc. My main jobs are to lay cables in floors and false ceiling which this tools seems ideal to do and compact enough not to go to deep and cut through pipes, cables etc but yet the specs seems amazing to do a lot of the larger jobs that the 18v can do. 
I am a large fan and owner of the Bosch Pro tools, so I know what standards you have and jobs the tools can do (and beyond).
I own a few 10.8v tools and they are really good for the jobs they are designed to do instead of having 18v tools to do smaller jobs.
many thanks 
Ian

Hi Bob
Been using bosch tools for quite some time now I currently have all the 18v 4.0Ah L Boxx range plus the GSR 10.8 V-EC HX Driver love this drive for its compact design brilliant for working in units after using bosch tools I would not use any other make spent over £15,000  including my sortimo van racking system 

I am a kitchen / Bathroom installer I currently fit for Wickes and B&Q as you can imagine I use a circular saw quite often my current saw (GKS 18V-Li) has been a god send for many jobs like cutting down breakfast bar worktops and much more I use the saw every day 
Love the L-Boxx system I have never been as organised and had so many coments about how tidy my van looks 27 L-Boxxs and all
I currently have room for another 238 L-Boxx in my sortimo Van racking system LOL

P.S. Ordered a Bosch Instant Awning cheers for information 

Cheers Huddy

 Hi Bob

As a Bosch Professional Power tool user i have invested about £7000 into bosch products over the last 3 years, my main profession is wood working,
I have a vast array of bosch tools ranging from routers, a lot of the 10.8v range aswell as quite a few 18v range which include grinder, combi drill, impact driver, circular saw, planer, sabre saw and my newly aquired 18v Multi Tool (last december) to name just a few, 
I love all my kit and would really love the opportunity to get my hands on the new GKS 10.8 V-LI Professional Cordless Circular Saw, for me it would be extremely handy for all those wood cutting jobs were a normal 18v circular saw wouldnt be practical.

Thanks for the opportunity
Many Thanks
Ian.

Hi bob! 
 I am a female handy lady coveringng work from woodwork, bricklaying, plastering ect having a successful business I am always looking out at trying out new tools especially because a lot of then are extremely heavy! And more man designed, I have just recently started trying out the Bosch range and have the older version of this circular saw! Would be fantastic to try this and compare with your older version! Especially to have a review from a lady as we'll! Let's not be sexist most tools are man tools! Would come in handy for a big project I have coming up building a shed for a client! 
Sorry if this is etchy I'm new to the forum so hello, I look forward to getting some great advice and tips from you guys and of cause reading real reviews !

Hello. I would like to put myself up for the chance to review the GKS.

I am a self-employed plumber in Bristol, my business has just gone past its first year and work is now picking up nicely. As my workload increases, my basic power tools have started to slow me down so I have been in the market for new cordless tools in the 10.8 range to help increase my productivity. My internet research for 10.8 tools lead me to this page.

As of late I have been fitting wet rooms which involves cutting lots of ply wood, tanking boards and messing about with floor levels. With the GKS' compact size and what looks like a well thought out design, it would be interesting to see how much easier it would be to use than my big wired circular saw. The 26.5mm cutting depth would be more than adequate for the jobs I would be undertake. I would also be curious to see how good the dust management is on it. Good dust management, although not the most exciting of things, would make mine and my customers' lives a lot nicer, healthier and cleaner.

I would love to have the chance to review the GKS and like to think I would give it a logical and fair review.
