Bosch 4100-09 Review

What the Bosch 4100-09 provides, is a full service portable table saw with numerous bells and whistles. It is sleek and easily hefted by convenient handles and the gravity rise stand works quite handily.  With built in wheels on the stand, the whole contraption converts into something akin to a dolly for easy relocation of the table saw.

Review:

The 15 amp 3650 rpm motor of the Bosch 4100-09, isn’t too dissimilar from other portable models, albeit on the upper end of power for its class.  Where the Bosch 4100-09 really sets itself apart isn’t in the standards of what table saws offer, it’s in the way it executes them.  On-tool storage allows for quick and easy access to all of the tools right where you can reach them. The square lock rip fence is quickly mounted or removed as necessary, and locks very snug into place. This is one table saw where having a square edge will not be an issue.  The aluminum finish of the Bosch 4100-09 allows for smooth even gliding of materials

The 21-1/2-inch square tabletop and 25-inch rip capacity give this saw more cutting room than any table saw in its class.  Sheet goods and larger stock are handled easily.  Of course the Bosch 4100-09 handles all standard materials including hard woods without the ugly burn that other table saws may cause.

Consumer reviews and drawbacks:

 

How it looks:

Bosch 4100-09

The most concrete of consumer issues for me is the desire from one user for a improved precision with beveling.  He noted that he could perform acceptable crosscuts on the Bosch 4100-09 but that he would prefer utilizing his stationary saw. For the vast majority however, the beveling performance did not seem to be an issue. For full reviews and details see the button below:

Value for money

All things considered, the Bosch 4100-09 is an excellent buy. At first the price may seem steep considering that the DEWALT DW745 (which I reviewed here)can get the job done for about 30% less.  And while the Dewalt DW745 is an excellent table saw in its own right, the additional features of the Bosch 4100-09 are well worth paying for in my opinion.  You get about twice as much rip capacity, the extremely handy gravity rise stand, and the added convenience of on-saw tool storage. This may not be a budget table saw, but that isn’t to say it doesn’t earn it’s keep. If the additional features and rip capacity are desired then the extra money would be well spent

Conclusion:

There aren’t many cons you can find about 4100-09 model. Its only competition is Dewalt DW745 and if I tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure which of them to place on no.1 spot on our list of recommendations. Both of them are great buys, but at the end it all comes down to personal preference.
