Professionals and those who would like to do some hobbies with the use of the right tools. The right tool may be a circular saw power tool. It might be easy to search for various brands and models that are available but finding the right brand can be a bit hard. The CS5 and the CS10 both made by Bosch are considered to be a couple of the best power saws in the market right now but between the two, which one should people choose? This article will compare the two saws to help people make the right choice.

When beginning your search for the best circular saw for you, there is one thing you will notice right away…the distinctions between circular saws aren’t always obvious. You can find one circular saw and think “looks good to me”, and right next to it is another and nothing seems noticeably different. Yet, there is a one hundred dollar price difference.
I bought the CS5 Circular Saw in May of 2015, and after two months of sporadic use the carbon brushes and armature needed to be replaced. It was repaired -- under warranty -- at the Bosch service facility in Anaheim, California. After another two months of normal / typical use, the carbon brushes and armature need to be replaced again. WTF? Is there an issue with the quality of the components Bosch uses for this particular saw? For five months of ownership and use, I expected something a bit more reliable. Not many choices for blade-left circular saws that are affordable, so I'll get this CS5 fixed again while it's under warranty. Bosch CS5 Circular Saw Review

I bought this saw because I wanted the left hand blade that you traditionally get with trim saws but I wanted a framing size. My first impressions when opening the box was that there were some small chips out of the plate and some scuffs on the housing. I was not thrilled but this does not affect the performance of the saw, which is quit well. I just ripped some mdf to try it out and it was great. I have a big deck job coming up and will put the saw though it paces. Overall a pretty good saw for the money and if you want a left hand framer without buying a worm drive saw.
