Who is it for?
This Bosch table saw is for the experienced woodworker and carpenter a like. It could potentially be used for a do it yourselfer, but the gadgets and flexibility of this saw are definitely designed for a customer who has been around table saws for a while. That being said, it is still incredibly user friendly!
This saw is not for someone who needs an extremely large saw. One of its features is compact and portable, so of course, you may have to sacrifice size a bit.
Neither is this table saw is not for someone who doesn’t know much about using this type of machine. If you are a novice, this is definitely not the saw for you. The bells and whistles will be beyond what you can use now or in the near future.
Precision is the key word with this table saw. While it’s other feature are notable, the accuracy in which this machine performs definitely takes the gold. Encompassing a modular blade guard, this table saw executes control without any issues.
It also delivers anti-kickback pawls and a riving knife system to take your product to the next level. With these features comes having a plain view which leads to less chance of error in your work.
Portability is another important factor when selecting the correct table saw for you. If you are on the go, this saw can be packed up and loaded as fast as you can say “It’s 5:00 somewhere”. It is unique in that it has a Gravity-Rise Stand.
The base is both convenient and robust. It can stand up to the most inconvenient work sites with its powder-coat finish. It is lightweight enough at 39 pounds to make it easy to haul but durable enough to withstand the elements.
Beyond a sturdy base, it’s ease of use is incredible. The integrated carrying handles will allow you to pick it up and go. It’s as simple as that! The wheels are adaptable to any terrain you can think of. Not only are they durable but they are also collapsible so you can store this saw practically anywhere.
This saw is more expensive than your average table saw, but I must say it is worth the extra bucks. Very sturdy and accurate (once you do your initial setup). The gravity rise stand is ingenious and although I do not mind the 2 step folding saws, this saw always puts a smile on my face as I use the rise stand. Its so simple even a kid could work it.
Power & Durability
Power is of course always at the top of your list when picking a power tool. The Bosch 4100-09 boasts a 15 amp, 4 HP, and 3,650 RPM to saw your way through material efficiently and accurately. Not only does it have a kick, it also has a soft-start and controls your power using Constant Response electronics. This allows for a smooth cut utilizing a constant speed.
The list of feature for this saw are astronomical. Not only are you getting a superb saw with a portable table and amazing wheel system, but Bosch also throws in the Squarelock Rip Fence, T-slot Miter Gauge, and the Smart Guard. It’s a little heftier than the other saws at 99 pounds, but that is mostly due to the durability factor.
Setting it Up!
Initial set up is a little tricky especially if you don’t know a whole lot about the saw. There have been complaints from customers on thins not being level and adjusting. However, once you get it all squared away, this saw seems to be invincible.
I ripped a bunch of shelves for a friend. Something like a dozen 3/4" plywood pieces 14"x16". Saw cut clean, never bogged down and the fence remained absolutely straight. ALL the shelves were identical in ripped width. I saw no movement of the fence or wobble of the blade over the repetitive cuts. I felt comfortable trimming the shelves by 1/16"; usually I'd leave that to sanding. This saw cuts clean and straight enough to take a half a kerf off without a worry
Another downfall the manufacturer may not tell you is that the blade it comes with seems to go dull rather quickly. There is an easy solution, buy a different blade! Several specialists in the field have replaced the blade to find that this machine works wonders afterwards.

Even with the few potential negatives, this saw definitely seems to be a favorite in the field. You can purchase it now on Amazon by clicking here.
