Purchased this this saw to replace a dying Makita 2703 table saw. The GTS1031 comes pre assembled and ready to go. All critical alignments with the fence are within acceptable tolerance for the do it yourself class. I took the time to adjust the riving knife, fence, 90 degree setting and 45 Degree stops. After that I cut through laminated particle board with the supplied rip blade and found clean results. Let me say I was impressed. I did install a new 60 tooth Freud and made an adapter to connect to a Rigid Vac along with buying the zero clearance insert. Cuts with a vacuum are almost dustless. Great for installations where dust control are needed. Easy to set up with optional stand, moderate strength to carry from truck to site. onboard miter gauge too inaccurate for precision cuts. Really needs the soft start on motor, blades wobble 1/8 or more on start up. surface coating scratches easily. overall well though out. Much better that the Dewalt for smooth cuts in thick stock, Dewalt motor mount allows lift and vibration on blade, Bosch doesn't. Cuts 18" wide. Riving knife is a great asset for thicker stock. Very safe saw to operate, stand is sturdy on long cuts for 1 man operation. out feed rollers a must on 4x8 sheet goods. would buy this saw for my grandmother

The fence is weak, not parallel with the table, the blade change is difficult. Slot for dust collection chute is narrow for blade, nut & washer removal. Plastic coating on table top is easily dissolved with lacquer thinner. When turning power on the blade sometimes wobbles so much that widens the cut through the zero clearance throat. Using a Freud D1040X ATB General Purpose 40 tooth blade. Great design overall. I expected better quality from Bosch

Great table saw

Comments about Bosch Tools 10" Worksite Table Saw:
I needed a good table saw but I didn't have a lot of room, so the Bosch GTS 1031 was perfect for my needs. It is very well thought out, cuts beautifully. Very happy with my purchase. I will be using this saw for years and years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Perfect for my shop
from Coumbus, OH
This saw replaced a smaller, old Craftsman that I have been using for over 25 years. This saw has plenty of power and features to keep me busy with projects for many years to come.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very Portable & Accurate!
from Buzzards Bay, Bourne, MA, United States
I have only had it a couple of months and have used it on several different job sites. With the matching stand I can setup and get to work quickly.
Great Saw Good design and features
from Banks, Oregon
Bought this saw and the table about a year ago. Hard decision vs the DeWalt. Very easy to carry and set up. Well thought out tool storage and blade change Only wish it had the rack and pinion adjustment on the fence like DeWalt
Dynamic Saw in a compact setup.
from Nebraska, United States
I bought this saw a couple of months ago. It does everything I was hoping for with plenty of power. I've also used a 1/2 dado with it and it worked great. The only downside that I have found is that the dept of the clearance plate is not deep enough to make your own wood inserts for use with dado blades or zero clearance. Not a big deal, just have to order the pre-made metal inserts.
Only one small adjustment
from Bellingham, WA, United States
I bought this saw almost a year ago and have been using it for multiple projects every month and it works great! I love the power, the accuracy of the fence, the cut width capability, how portable it is, and the dust collection. This seems to have been very thought out. Even to the point of how the miter guide, push stick, blade wrenches and blade guard all store on-board! I am very happy with this tool, it is probably one of my favorites. And, the saw supports a 1/2 inch dado and the insert accommodates it out of the box by just switching the washers around on the arbor. So I definitely love this tool. However, there is one improvement I wish they had made and that is to make the knob that holds the blade wrenches in their compartment out of metal instead of plastic. Since the push stick is also stored by clipping it onto that small piece, I have had mine break (and then I glued it back together) and then break (and I fixed it again in a different place) and then now it has broken again. So that is kind of lame since now I can't store the wrenches or the push stick. But, otherwise, this is an exceptionally well thought out tool, in my opinion.
awesome bearing and adjustments

from Houston, TX, United States
I bought this to work on a home project. I have been so pleased that I've used it more often than I've anticipated. The set up is so easy and the cutting is accurate. I am glad that I bought this table saw.
It does the job!
from Pahrump, NV, United States
I bought this saw because its size fits the space I allotted. Im very pleased with its fit, form and function. I do not know how one could ask for more. Its not always the big, expensive, robust tools that do the job, remember, it also takes talent and skill to make things and its not just the tools you use.
from Baton Rouge, LA
I bought this saw recently. I needed a saw that would quickly pack up and not take much room in my Garage. I do not a workshop and use the garage and driveway to do my projects. This saw has filled this requirement perfectly. I have done separate projects now and the saw has done all I could expect. I added a dado blade and the saw had the power to easily make the cuts using that blade. I did purchase an 8 inch dado blade to assure that the cuts would not bog down. Great saw and easy to use.
