By Renée Francoeur
September 19, 2016 – Bosch says its GSA18V-083B 18V cordless reciprocating saw is lightweight, coming in at 5.5 lb, with a length of 15-3/4 in. and delivers 0.83-in. (21 mm) stroke at up to 3000 strokes per minute. The tool is also designed with a variable-speed trigger so “trade professionals can ease into the cut and minimize kickback potential”.
The saw features the “Lockjaw” blade holder for toolless blade change and an LED light. There is also a lock-out feature that prevents inadvertent start-up.
It also includes the Bosch Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) system, which the company says protects the motor against overload and ensures long life, and the Bosch Electronic Cell Protection (ECP) that protects the battery against overload, overheating and deep discharge.
