Bosch Provides Corded Performance With The 18V ProFactor Circular Saw

Bosch’s ProFactor series boasts corded-level performance on the brand’s 18V battery platform. Included in this lineup are several circular saws, and today we’re focusing on the Bosch ProFactor 18V 7 1/4-Inch Circular Saw (GKS18V-25CN). So, what does it have to offer woodworkers and tradesmen who want to go cord-free?
