Right away we noticed something different about the CS20: There is no power cord, but there is a convenient rafter hook. The saw also has Bosch’s Direct Connect system, with recessed, male electronic prongs in the handle. Plug in a heavy-duty extension cord and thread it through a slot and hook to prevent disconnections.
The spring-loaded lever locks for depth and bevel can be pulled outward and repositioned. The bevel adjustment has details at 22.5° and 45°, and the depth adjuster has detents at common dimensions, but none were positive enough to rely on without looking at the scales. The CS20 weighs 10.4 ib. and has a hang-up-resistant blade guard.
