Mount Prospect, Ill.-based Bosch Power Tools launched the Bosch CM8S 8-Inch Single Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw. At just 37 pounds, the CM8S is described as the “ultimate in portability and convenience for jobsite cuts.”
The product offers a well-balanced saw with a top-handle for one-handed transportation on and off jobsites. Almost half the weight of larger saws, the CM8S offers a convenient solution for remodelers, flooring contractors and woodworkers who need a portable saw. The CM8S delivers nearly the same cutting capacity as a 10-inch miter saw, but weighs 30% less, the company said.
Easy access controls - including a bevel lock lever and turret stops - located on the side of the tool allow users to make quick and easy adjustments for multiple cuts. A unique vertical, form-fitting trigger handle provides intuitive cutting and ambidextrous use. Soft grip on both the main handle and top carry handle provide added comfort.
The CM8S is available now at authorized dealers nationwide. For a suggested retail price of $469, the CM8S includes a 48T blade, blade wrench and dust bag.
