User Review

  • 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

guy193, Bosch US

  • 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!

JoeD, Bosch US

  • 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...

Poor dust collection

DCBU, Bosch US
6 July 2014
  • Summary: The dust collection is useless on this saw. It doesn't matter if the dust port is connected to a good Fein vac or large stationary shop dust collector, most of the dust ends up all over the saw and the floor.
