    I feel for smaller branches a recip saw would be safer then chainsaw. Plus a recip is much lighter to handle then chainsaw.

    I use my recip saw with a pruning blade all the time to trim trees and bushes, light and fast.

    I put a request in for this saw this week. I can’t wait to try it. I also have pruning blade for it.

    Congrats Greg , I always thought about picking this up. But so far I’ve been able to get most work done with the regular 18 volt recip
    Would be nice to have a compact one.

    The saw blade guard for the Bosch compact saw does not pivot. It’s fixed.

    I am hoping this compact recip will suit my needs. I too have a chainsaw & pole saw. I feel for smaller branches a recip saw would be safer then chainsaw. Plus a recip is much lighter to handle then chainsaw. Most times I just need to trim a few branches. So makes sense to use the recip saw.

    I see. For me if I prune a branch, the branch that fall would be kind of the size of a small Christmas tree, and we have to fit all that into the yard waste cart for collection.

    So it may take 2 minutes to cut down the branch, but on the ground, I have to break the branch down into smaller, shorter pieces to fit inside the cart. That process may take 10 minutes. With a chainsaw I can do it in 2 minutes because I only need to touch these branches for a split second to cut them all into pieces. With a recip saw I need to kneel down and actually cut them through one at a time. But with only a single branch or two the cordless saw will work.

    Thanks Brian. I thought I would give a try. It might be nice to a have a compact recip saw.

    I knew that I saw it on one of reviews.

    I just need to cut so the branches are easier to handle and can fit in the back of my truck. So I can take it too the dump.

    I used it (with a 6.3ah core battery) to cut some PT 2X4s side by side with the Milwaukee FUEL 18V compact saw (with a 5ah battery) and the Milwaukee did better faster (most likely due to it bring brushless).

    I can’t believe it has a brushed motor on it.

    Bosch has been slow to bring brushless motors to their tools.

    Yeah. I think they are finally getting to that now
    Guess that they just want to make sure that they have the power in battery packs to back them up.

    I am not sure they are slow in that regard. I read somewhere (may be here LOL) most of the newer editions of these tools outside of NA are indeed brushless and have been around for a few years, they are just NAINA.

    The grinder I bought a few weeks ago the Bosch GWS18V-45 is also brushed, but they have a GWS18V-45CN which is brushless but at twice the price and is connect ready. I don’t want to pay extra for connect ready, but would pay extra for a paddle switch, however I can’t find the paddle switch edition in NA.

    Sorry Brian. LOL!! I thought it was a decent review!
    I got my 18V Compact recip saw today. It seems like a good saw. I am sure it will do what I need it to do.

    Bosch could be trying to sell off all the old brushed tools before they let the brushless tool out. Once they are out bosch will be stuck with the remaining brushed tools.

    That’s possible of course, but then again, let’s say they delay for six months or a year to roll out new generation tools to clear out old inventory, how many users are buying the older tools? How many users ended up buying a brushless Makita or Milwakee or DeWalt or whatever instead because the perception that Bosch is running behind? If they want to clear out old inventory they have to do it real quick like over the holidays with a blow out price, or give them away like a Freak contest LOL.
