Bosch 4100-09 Review

About the Bosch 4100-09:

With unique design characteristics, the Bosch 4100-09 10-Inch Worksite Table Saw with Gravity-Rise Stand (TS3000) is built for easy, professional, and precise cutting that lets you get jobs done faster.

And with its portable production, which allows for movement across even the roughest ground, it makes a perfect addition to any work site.

The inventive Gravity-Rise Stand (TS3000) uses patented technology to make setup and take down faster than ever, so you can use more time working.

And it’s extremely transportable: the eight-inch treaded pneumatic wheels can get you where you need to go, and the collapsible design minimizes how much room you need for storage.

The stand may be lightweight at 39 pounds, but it’s constructed to last, complete with a powder-coat finish for durability.

(If you are looking for a stand that includes adapter plates to accommodate competitive saws, you can purchase Bosch’s TS2000 here.)

The 15 Amp, 10-inch table saw produces a maximum 4 HP and 3,650 RPM for remarkably clean cuts. Additionally, the tool features soft-start and Constant Response electronics for outstanding power management and constant speed.

It features a 5/8-inch arbor size for use with compatible blades and will make bevel cuts between -2 and 47 degrees in addition to dado cuts up to 13/16 inch.

An optional, distinctive easy-to-read digital measuring display (DC010, not included) can be put on the fence to take measurements for cuts within 1/32 of an inch.

Made from precision machined aluminum for maximum sturdiness and long life, the 29 x 21.5 inch cutting table easily handles large stock for greater ripping capacity up to 25 inches wide.

The top-notch Squarelock Rip Fence is engineered for utmost trueness, so you get maximum precision with every cut.

The pioneering rip fence moves across the cutting table with ease for simple one-handed operation, and it locks in place for making dependable exact cuts.

The first-of-its-kind Smart Guard System is a completely tool-free design that provides unmatched visibility and superior safety, so you can see the cuts better while serving to avoid kickback or blade contact.

The modular three-piece system includes a built-in riving knife, blade guard and anti-kickback pawls, all which install quickly and necessitate no tools.

The Bosch 4100-09 10-Inch Table Saw with Gravity-Rise Stand weighs 99 pounds (saw and stand). It is backed by a one-year limited warranty, 30-day money back guarantee, and one-year service protection plan.
