When the job at hand is demolition and rough cutting, speed and convenience are as important as power. And that’s where the Bosch GSA18V-083B 18V Reciprocating Saw offers great power-to-weight ratio to get the job done right – from overhead cutting to working on conduit or pocket cuts.
The Bosch GSA18V-083B reciprocating saw is lightweight, coming in at 5.5 pounds with a compact length of 15-3/4 inches. Yet it still delivers an efficient 0.83-inch (21 mm) stroke at up to 3,000 strokes per minute. The tool is designed with a variable-speed trigger so trade professionals, including electricians and carpenters, can ease into the cut and minimize kickback potential. A great choice for overhead or close-quarters cutting jobs, this reciprocating saw provides the advantages of an easy blade-change system, low-vibration, and an LED light.
The Bosch GSA18V-083 Cordless Reciprocating Saw provides a variable-speed trigger, so users can ease the saw into the material. This saw provides 0-3,000 strokes per minute, so the user can match the functioning speed of the tool to the application or the material.
The saw’s economical .83-inch (21 mm) stroke length means optimum material removal per stroke and less vibration, making it ideal for cutting conduit and pipe. The saw provides an ergonomically shaped handle with a soft-grip zone to ensure a secure hold and minimized user fatigue.
The Bosch GSA18V-083 reciprocating saw features the Lockjaw™ blade holder, which is the easiest blade-change system in its class by offering toolless, blade change. It provides an LED light to illuminate dark work areas and has a lock-out feature that prevents inadvertent startup of the tool for additional user security.
This reciprocating saw also includes the Bosch Electronic Motor Protection (EMP) system, which 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.
