    A real gem for the hobbyist.

    • The supplied attachments for working on the ground
    • movable laser
    • You have to adjust the laser accurately yourself. This is not done from the factory. Fixed quickly

    For this crosscut saw you have a good price/quality ratio. The saw does not start immediately in a full tower, which provides better control. The number of decibels he makes is not exaggerated, so also positive. The included attachments for working on the ground are perfect

    Very happy with it

    • Precise cutting work
    • Good support for your sawing work
    • Sawdust collection not really good
    • Manual incomplete

    Very happy with it. It cuts very straight and the sawn surface is beautifully smooth.
    In the first test it was only noticeable that the laser indication deviated by about 2 mm. However, I can imagine that they don't do that during production, because after transport it still differs.
    Incidentally, there was no description in the manual how to adjust this. I eventually found out that you can do that with a small Allen key. Fine adjustments can be made on the sides of the laser, and the entire laser unit can be moved at the bottom.

    Great crosscut saw for home use
    • Easy to operate
    • Also stable on uneven surfaces
    • Table extension is handy
    • Dust bag doesn't really work

    The machine is easy to use and you can work with it accurately (the laser is easy to adjust). The dust bag does not really work, but for indoor use the vacuum cleaner hose is easy to insert into the dust outlet. That makes a huge difference.

    Then go for the Bosch PCM 8SD
    • Cheaper than the PCM 7S that older machine!!
    • That there is now an 8S ??
    • 4 green blocks there? Instead of two with the PCM 7S
    • Sawdust gang everywhere around the machine!!
    • Suction with possible vacuum cleaner works poorly! Still a gang.
    • Dust bag enters very little sawdust
    • Laser is so densely lubricated with resin sawdust
    • Cutting depth and cutting length (poor)

    The Bosch PCM 8S is a poor version of the PCM 7S and still has the same inconveniences of the machine.

    Decent saw, but with thick beams you curse on the erm cap.
    • Saws well
    • Sound acceptable
    • good laser
    • With thick beams, the safety blocks.

    Saws well. Nothing to note. With thick beams, the safety blocks, while there is no good reason for it. If I bypass the hood with a piece of tape it works fine.

    solid crosscut saw with many possibilities
    • handy and not too heavy
    • supplied with good saw blade
    • laser light not easy to move
    • No quick stop function for the rotating saw blade

    It is a compact saw with pull function and handy laser. Good saw blade included. The laser light can be placed to the left or right of the saw, but does not move easily. The extensions on the left and right are handy, but make the device less transportable, they are also made of plastic, so they probably won't last that long.
