fearsome but handles well
I own a bunch of other Bosch 18V cordless tools (drill, impact driver, jigsaw and circular saw) but had not planned to buy this one until I had a major demolition job to do. My wife changed that. She wanted it to cut down a bunch of small bushes in the yard, too big for the hand nippers, but too small for the chainsaw. She was right. It makes fast work of this stuff. She says it is the first power tool I have bought that she is not frightened to use. It is surprisingly lightweight and easy to operate, but very powerful. I also used it to cut up a tub/shower surround that was left from a bathroom renovation, so now the pieces are small enough to take in my car to the dump. It cut through the fiberglass like it was butter. Definitely need a fat pack battery - it won't run long on the smaller ones. I bought Bosch DareDevil blades for it, because I was so impressed with the Bosch DareDevil spade bits for my drill. So far the blades work well and show no sign of wear. I am very happy with it. Another awesome tool from Bosch Tools.
