New Litheon cordless tools feature best-in-class runtime and performance.
With best-in-class runtime (up to 50% more than the competition), battery life and performance, Bosch’s Litheon cordless system is winning converts worldwide. Bosch is now broadening its successful cordless tool lineup with the addition of two new cordless saws.

Bosch’s new CCS180 Circular Saw and CRS180 Reciprocating Saw will be available nationwide in December 2008.
