Love that it fits up against the wall.

  • Summary: This could be the very best saw money can buy. Up front controls, easy to adjust, built in extension wings and very accurate. The axial glide is tremendous. However, the lack of a built in laser or LED blade shadow light, the only real drawback with this saw, makes spending the extra money hard to justify. And the extra cost "blade laser washer" is a waste of money, indoors or out as it is only good on the left side of the blade and very dim.

  • Summary: bought this last week from home depot, finally got it setup on the T4B stand very nice but couldn't calibrate the 0 degree bevel, turns out the aluminum base is machined wrong, I will be returning it. For $600 I or anyone would assume this would never leave the plant where its made!!

Initial reactions after setup and first use

DoctorDan, Bosch US
7 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this saw on the basis of the Bosch name, the cross-cut capacity and the zero rear clearance requirement. I was my intention to mount the saw to a bench equipped with extension fences and a measuring system. My first disappointment was that there were inadequate published specs on the measurements, especially the height or width of the saw table. I had to buy the saw, measure it and leave it in the box for 3 months while I constructed a bench to fit it.

  • Summary: I bought this for my husband so I was really sure if he would like it or not but he absolutely loves it! He said it works great and I couldn't have gotten a better one for the price I paid.

Excellent Saw

  • Summary: Been using it a bunch and it's an excellent saw. No adjustment required out of the box, so that's a big plus. Changing angles is super easy and keeps it's setting once engaged. Only possible downside is the weight, but I also have the gravity rise table.

By far best on the market

  • Summary: I have had this saw for 2 years now. I have come to rely on this thing more than any other tool in my shop. I recently used another brand in the field and it fell short, way short. I actually got in my truck, drove back to my shop picked it up and headed back to the site.

Compound Mitre Saw

  • Summary: I am very happy with my Bosch Mitre saw. It was purchased for me four years ago and has proven to be accurate, easy to use and durable. I have it on the gravity lift table. It is an indispensable tool for doing quality woodwork.

This is a MACHINE!

  • Summary: I do home renovations as a hobby, my personal stuff and some family stuff. I had a basic mitre saw and was looking for a premium model.....when I saw this baby I needed to justify spending the money. I bought an apartment building and finally could justify the cost for this miter saw........I think I bought the building just so I could buy the saw! This is one of the best tools I have ever purchased! Tight lines and smooth operation. Thank you Bosch!

good saw

bong11, Bosch US
23 July 2014
  • Summary: it's a good saw love it even tough it's heavy, a miter saw stand is a must for this monster, the only thing i don't like with this saw is the dust extraction ,the deflector is to small i have to put a tape so it can deflect more dust to the vacuum port , i hope bosch work on that...
