About the Product
The Bosch 4100-09 10 In. Worksite Table Saw with Gravity-Rise Wheeled Stand delivers both professional rip capacity and outstanding portability for a tool that can get the job done, wherever it is. The SquareLock Rip Fence is engineered for maximum trueness and great ease-of-use, with the fence able to easily glide along the rail for one-handed operation. The Gravity-Rise Wheeled Stand has 8 In. treaded rubber-composite wheels and a collapsible design for easy transport and storage. It is jobsite-ready, with heavy-duty construction, and it has a powder-coat finish for longevity. The Smart Guard System is the first modular table saw blade guard, featuring a three-position adjustable riving knife, anti-kickback pawls and non-obstructed-view barrier guard assembly. The entire system attaches and detaches in seconds, will not interfere with work and stores on the tool. The table saw provides a 29 In. x 21-1/2 In. square tabletop with a 25 In. rip capacity for ripping 4 Ft. wide sheets goods in half; a 15-amp, 4.0-hp max motor that provides a no-load rpm rating of 3,650; and an integrated sub base that increases the tool life by protecting the table saw base.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bosch 4100-09 with Gravity-Rise Stand Table Saw
  • Weight of this unit isn't bad but the overall size make it a little bit more difficult to move around than say a table top saw.
  • Very portable and light weight. Accurate fence.
  • Works great. Light weight. Sometimes it rocks some when trying to rip a 4x8 sheet of plywood yourself
  • It's light weight and plastic base allow for much easier transportation (my 64b takes two strong backs to even pick up and move...the Bosch takes one hand).
  • The thing is HUGE so the Bosch had to win the remaining three by far for me to afford not only the price difference but the outside US shipping cost difference. This is by far bigger than the Dewalt
Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw
  • Heavy enough to stay in place while ripping.
  • Small footprint when being stored (folded up and stored in the corner when not in use).
  • The stand is plenty sturdy to take the abuse of weight.
  • It's amazing how light weight this saw is but it is solid as a rock on the stand.

What customers say about "Cutting"
Bosch 4100-09 with Gravity-Rise Stand Table Saw
  • The Bosch blade that it comes with was removed and replaced with a Freud. The saw cut like a hot knife through butter and I am very pleased with the overall performance. The miter gauge is a little sloppy in the miter tracks.
  • The fence is square to the blade, and is rock solid, as long as you make sure the nut at the back of the fence is set right.
  • t comes with a 40-tooth blade which is fine for ripping; if you plan to do woodworking that requires a cleaner cut be sure to buy an appropriate blade. Blade installation is simple.
  • Fence is extremely accurate. I usually verify with a tape to ensure cut is square from front to back of fence, but more often than not this step is unnecessary.
  • Con....the table is a bit small giving you roughly 8" from the edge to the blade to work with. I made a crosscut jig for it for my box joints. but could realistically only make it 6" wide.
Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw
  • The R4510 has a split blade guard for bevel cuts, spreader/riving knives, push stick, and anti-kickback pawls.
  • Cutting mostly softwoods; pine, which the saw handles with ease. The fence rule (mounted tape measurer)works like a charm - - and is accurate down to 1/64 of an inch.
  • I recently cut a 3/4" dado in over 400 board foot of wood for a fence and this saw plowed through it with no difficulty!
  • The Miter gauge is pretty precise and it allows for the atachment of a miter fence which is nice for cutting off-angled miters with little, if any, tear out.
  • I tried cutting a 2x4 and the blade would torque to the side, So I rechecked the fence and the blade tried cutting a piece of MDF with the same results the blade would torque to the side and bind up.
  • The portable stand works very well. However, the throat plate was concave to the blade. This's prevented the accurate cutting of small stock because the stock would rock when cutting.

What customers say about "Features"
Bosch 4100-09 with Gravity-Rise Stand Table Saw
  • Very good dust collection. A Craftsman shop vac is all I have connected to the dust port and I'm fairly happy with this saw's ability NOT to kick wood dust back up into the air.
  • I also love all the safety features - riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, large easy-to-reach power button, nice push stick, and a dust collection port that is positioned out of the user's way.
  • Features are clever including the fence measurement gage when the right table is extended.
  • The safety features are so easy to install on and off, there is no reason not to keep them in place.
  • The features for the rip fence are good; the registration and accuracy is completely acceptable for my work. Paired with the Bosch miter saw that I own, I have no excuse for not getting the job done - well.
Ridgid R4510 Heavy-Duty Portable Table Saw
  • The right side of the table expands to 25", just lift the lever, slide the table out and push the locking lever back down.
  • The rip fence and blade were aligned right out of the box and the rip fence slides very smoothly.
  • The onboard tool and cord storage work great.
  • The large wheels work great for a bumpy area.
  • The stand is no longer made up of one solid bar. Instead the handles are separate pieces and is very loose to the touch.
