The saw is better than I expected. Everything was in perfect alignment. The blade elevates and tilts easily. I especially like the table extension. The lock handle is very positive so I am sure it is locked down before I make my cuts. My splurge was the digital carriage. It is so accurate, I am glad I bought it. The smart guard is a great idea and because it is so easy to install, (no tools), I put it on when needed. I can always find it because it stores right on the saw. I like the gravity rise stand idea, but after setting it up, I find it has such a large footprint, it's awkward to get around. I wish I had bought the standard stand.

I purchased this saw based upon the various reviews I read as well as the Bosch reputation. So I would love to be reviewing the saw for how good it works as a saw but unfortunately I cannot. As I was going through the adjustments, as per the instruction booklet, imagine my surprise when I was adjusting the blade parallel to the miter gauge slots when one of the screws stripped. Well it was the aluminum saw blade housing that the screws screwed into that stripped. I didnâ€™t use that much force; in fact I used more force to loosen the screw than I did to tighten them. It appears that the steel screw thread is too fine for the aluminum application. I wished that I didnâ€™t need to adjust the blade but the way I received it, it was about a 1/8â€� off parallel â€" front to back. This was just too far off. This happened on a Saturday morning and the Bosch service department is closed on the weekend so I had to wait until Monday morning to call them. They recommended I take it to a local Bosch authorized service center (not Bosch owned) which I was glad to do. Once there, the service department told me they would try to expedite it but it may take a week to get it back to me. If they had to send it back to Bosch it would take a few weeks and they would HAVE TO CHARGE ME THE UPS SHIPPING CHARGE. The saw is brand new and I have to pay to fix a defect on a new saw? I guess we will see how this plays out. I know I should have waited until this did play out but I wanted to get my experience out there so people thinking about purchasing this saw would be aware of the potential stripping of the adjustment screws as well as the potential problems getting a new saw fixed. I personally feel since the saw is new (the zip tie installed at the factory to lock the on/off switch hasnâ€™t been cut yet) Bosch should just replace the saw â€" no harm no foul. Whether they do or not doesnâ€™t fix the fact that the aluminum saw blade housing is a potential problem. I do give two stars because I purchased this saw with the gravity-rise stand and it went together rather nicely. The instructions were incorrect with the necessary wrenches required. It seems that they have beefed up some of the bolts because the wrenches mentioned in the instruction booklet were smaller than actually needed. The solid tires are a nice change from the pneumatic tires that used to be provided. Once the saw was attached to the stand it worked nicely in moving the saw to my truck so I could take it to the repair facility.

Meets All Of My Requirements
from Chattanooga, TN, United States
Perfect tool for my shop which has limited storage space.
good but there are better
I love all my Bosch tools, so when I came to buying a new table saw I decide to go with Bosch. This is a good saw that comes with a decent blade, but it has a couple of annoying shortcomings. It does not have a geared micro adjustment that some saws come with which I thought was unfortunate. It is also hard to read the ruler at a glance. The magnifier is small and obscures the whole number though it does magnify the fraction well. For this reason I bought the digital readout option with the saw but it broke the second time I used it and was a fairly complicated set-up and did not work properly when opening the saw to the 24 inch wide mode, I got a refund. The other thing that annoyed me about the saw was the gravity stand which comes up and down easy enough but the rubber tabs on the opposite side from the wheels are so low to the ground when you are moving it that they catch on everything, drop clothes, scraps on the floor etc. Wider inflatable wheels would also be an improvement. When first using the saw I thought the motor was bogging down, but after a while you realize that's just the way it is, it does slow down a little but does power well through large dimensional lumber. I recommend getting the optional width and length supports that some saws come with, they were cheap enough. Overall it's a good saw but I found after a year I was wishing I bought the rigid for less money or the Makita for more money.
Sturdy stand and nice features
from Denver, CO, United States
I have owned this saw for a few years with no problems. The portable stand works well and was a big reason I bought this saw. I like the soft start for the blade motor and it has worked flawlessly.
from Tennessee, United States
Very satisfied with accuracy and ease of setup. Looking forward to trying out a new set of dado blades on it.
I bought two of these things over 6 years. At first they ran great, did everything I wanted them to do. After about 3 years, the motor froze on the first one. Then I bought a 2nd because I was in the middle of a job and thinking the first was was a fluke, and didn't want to mess around, but after two years plus or minus, it started to run slooowly so I chucked it in the corner with the other one and there they sit collecting dust.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from SD, United States
worked with this saw for a couple of months and it has performed perfectly. cutting hard woods it zip right thru. I use it in my garage and the portability is a blessing. the stand is easy to use when storing. folds right up and rolls away. my son is a contractor and has had one for 10 yrs and it just keeps going. I made my purchase based on his experience. I can't thank him enough. thanks also to bosch for building a great tool.
The King of Table Saws
from Lynchburg, VA
I have used dewalt, Craftsman and other table saws before but this one is by far the best. Not only is the saw packed with all the features you need with the accuracy for a professional, but the gravity stand that it comes with allows me to utilize the saw more than I normally would because it is SOOO EASY to set up. Bosch got it right!
One of Best Saws I've used.
from Wichita, KS, United States
Bought this saw about 4 years ago and it has been a pleasure to use. You can move it any where in your shop to use.
