This 136mm circ saw dedicated to cutting metal is a first from Bosch Blue Power Tools who say it will cut metal with speed, precision and with reduced dangers thanks to low spaks and greater precision for less reworking, discolouration and burr formation.


“The Cordless Metal Circular Saw has a high cut to battery charge ratio and boats a compact, ergonomic design for low-fatigue working,” a Bosch media release states, with a Bosch spokesperson confirming to TTT that it weighs 2.7kg with a 4.0AH battery.

The maximum cutting depth of the tool in metal at is 50mm at 90 degrees.

Launched in Australia in October 2015, Bosch says the GKM 18V-LI Professional 18V Metal Circular Saw has been specifically designed for metalworkers and is ideal for sparkies, roofers and installers.

It features a depth adjustment and steel footplate with line guide along with a cut window and LED light in the head of the tool for greater visibility.
