Read our Bosch 10-inch worksite saw and stand review to find out.
Features of the Bosch Worksite Table and Stand
The gravity-rise stand is ideal for any worksite application. This stand has two 8-in treaded pneumatic wheels for when you are on the move. When you are in place and ready to set up, you can lower the cinch and get to work. The way this saw collapses down ensures that when this saw is stored, minimal space will be required and it is powder coated to ensure it lasts many years. However, you do not have to worry that it is going to be heavy when you load it on your truck. The entire saw with stand only weighs in at 60 pounds.
This saw promises precision cutting with its standard 5/8-in arbor, 10-inch saw blade that is backed by 3,650 rpm with no load on it. It has a 15 amp motor to ensure it can handle the projects that you need to take on, especially when you use the 10-in/40-tooth carbide tipped blades. It also features soft-start so that the blade speeds up as you start cutting.
The cutting table can handle stock that is up to 25 inches wide. It measures in at 29 x 21-1/2 inch square, but can extend to a width of 40.5 inches. It can cut bevels at an angle that ranges from -2 to 47 degrees. The max cut depth at 45 degrees is 2-1/2 inches. When cutting at 90 degrees it can easily handle 3-1/8 inches. No matter what you are cutting, you will be protected from kickbacks because it is equipped with Bosch’s innovative Smart Guard System.
This machine is designed for rugged use. The table is fabricated from machined aluminum and the sub base is integrated to the saw. This means it can withstand any abuse that you, or your crew, may put it through on a daily basis when working on the jobs at hand.
This Bosch table saw uses a SquareLock rip fence to help decrease wasted wood due to miscuts. It also has auxiliary fence slots and a T-slot miter gauge. It operates with only one hand and locks into place quickly. The riving knife stops material from pinching the blade to ensure no damages occur. This also ensures that you can split and cut without going all the way through the wood you are working with if you need it to.
This table saw comes with a full 1-year warranty to ensure that you are completely happy with the performance of your new tool. This also ensures that you do not have to deal with repairing something that is a manufacturer’s defect.
