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.

Motor not powering up fully on first day of use.

Comments about Bosch Tools 10" Table Saw With Gravity-Rise Stand:
I purchased this saw new, assembled it and also installed bench extension with the hope that this saw would live up to reviews I've read. Sadly within the first hour of operation after cutting 2 pieces of 3/4" plywood the saw motor began to slow down and speed up on its own. Wow what a waste of my time researching this saws reliability! Obviously there is no inspection or quality control or this would never had made it into the box. Customer service offered to let me take it back to the retail store, repair shop or ship back for repairs but no mention of compensation or adjustments for my 2 hours assembling, loss of income and time on worksite while needing to return and buy a new saw. Very unhappy with Bosch lack of quality!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Can't be beat
from Minnesota, United States
This thing is great for dragging around to different spots to keep your tools close to your work, and even for the casual home owner who needs to convert their garage into a workshop in short notice. Sets up quickly, all the accessories are conveniently stored on-board, and the thing has plenty of power for ripping through lumber. The fence is versatile and can accommodate wide stock. The table is pretty short front-to-back so deep/long cuts with a miter gauge are tough to accomplish, but the tool is intended to be portable so it's expected.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Greatest features portability with movable stand.
from St George, UT, United States
Bought this saw to produce a grandfather clock including the gear movement. I intend to use this saw to cut gear teeth. I'm going to ask a great deal from a contractor's saw. The method to the align the fence with the blade could be improved - fine adjustment. Also, the miter gauge needs to be updated to include a work piece tie down and a few hole drilled to allow for the addition of a longer base.
One major problem
from Santa Cruz, CA, United States
The saw itself is great. The major problem I had involves the saw blade that came with the saw. I tried one cut and it began burning the wood. Checked the instructions and checked the adjustments, still burned wood. Fought with this for several hours then decided to check the blade. I put on an old construction grade blade and no burning. I checked the blade that came with the saw and found that I could see daylight when I set a rule across the blade surface. It appears that the blade was warped. For a saw this expensive you would think that the blade would be good.

great job saw!
from Buffalo, NY, United States
i have had mine for almost 10 years and it has held up.
Great portable saw
from San Diego, CA, United States
It is all around a great portable table saw and I wouldn't expect any better. Except for the miter gauge, which has a lot of slop so I don't use, but I plan on getting a better one which is no big deal and will make me have no complaints with this saw.
Great addition to my workshop
Very pleased with this saw and stand combo. Flawless operation thus far. I look forward to using it and the results impress.
from California, United States
The 4100 is a dream, cuts like butter with a good blade, super quite. The 40T blade that came with it is off by 10/1000. Doesn't sound like much but the vibration in the saw is audible. With an accurate blade it's almost silent....

Better than expected
from Minneapolis, MN, United States
FYI - I work for a different division of Bosch. I have owned this saw for about 5 years now and I am continually impressed with how well it works. I have owned a few other saws before this one, and had trouble with getting a true cut or keeping it true over time. With the Bosch I set the fence to what the indicator says, I don't bother double checking any more with my tape measure, and I let 'er rip. Perfect every time. The only complaints I have is the tires go flat after a few months and the handle gets scuffed up and eventually rusts from contacting the ground when folded.

A tough saw with the best folding stand around
from Canton, GA
I have had this table saw for years now and have experienced typical Bosch reliability. Wrestling any table saw out of the back of your truck is a pain. The large tubes on this smooth folding frame makes for easy handling. The frame is by far the best out there when folding back up for packing; it does not slam together and there are no pinching points to catch your fingers. Very well thought out design.
