Fantastic Table Saw and Mobile stand
Strengths: Top notch engineering & accuracy. The G-R stand is wonderful. Truly a mobile, easy to use saw; with a place for everything. There is a reason this is the top rated saw/stand on the market.
Weakness: None in my opinion. A little on the pricy side, but when compared to other saws, worth paying a little more.
This is my second Bosch saw (sliding compound mitre, about 4 years ago) and the quality of the mitre had me looking at Bosch first when I needed a high quality mobile table saw. As with all my purchases, I did a good bit of research and reading of reviews and Bosch was always at the top. I am not a professional woodworker, but with Bosch quality and engineering built into their products, I feel like a pro. It is amazing how much easier the job is with quality tools.
The setup of my old Craftsmen table saw was a pain. Getting a straight cut was hit and miss. With Bosch precision every cut is perfect.
Sure, I have not put every many hours on the saw to date. No worries. It is like a car. You know when you are driving a fine automobile and when your not. I am confident my review would only have higher praise a year from now.
As for the Gravity-Rise Wheeled Stand, I would highly recommend the stand, even if you purchase another saw. The stand is designed for the Bosch table saw, but will work with several other worksite saws. Check Bosch's web site for specs before you buy.

Bosch 4100-09 Review
Strengths: Fence, mobility, value
Weakness: Time to put together, accessories add up
The Bosch 4100-09 table saw is the first quality table saw I have owned. I purchased this after several hours of reseach. I like to ability to pack it down in a relatively small area for storage. The fence is perfectly square and true right out of the box and it is also very accurate. I do wish it had larger wheels for manuvering over obstacles. Another nice feature at this price I would like the saw to have would be a digital fence readout without have to spend another $100+.

A great product from Bosch! A high quality and fairly precise saw.
A great product from Bosch! A high quality and a fairly precise table saw. Only one negative, It should come with all the side and back supports when you purchase the saw. I did find those attachments cheaper on AMAZON.

You get what you pay for
Like many others I did a lot of research on this saw before purchasing. I read reviews here, on Amazon and many tool sites. I poured through YouTube and watched all the videos I could find. But in the end I chose Bosch not only because of the reviews but also because of the adjustments that are capable on the saw. I had an older Ryobi saw and the blade was never quite square to the miter gauge and there was no way to adjust it. On this saw you can adjust the blade parallel to the miter gauge slots with the allen wrench which stores on the saw. You can also adjust the 0 and 45 degree positive stops on the saw blade, the 0 and 45 degree positive and negative stops on the miter gauge itself, the rip fence alignment, the rip fence pointer so that when it says 6 and 9/16 inches and you make a cut you get a piece of wood exactly 6 and 9/16 inches, and because the fence is perfectly aligned the cut is smooth with no binding on the backside of the blade. Granted you would expect this but the Bosch delivers and many saws don't. You can also adjust the table pointer so that when you run the rip fence out to the far right positive stop and extend the table those measurements are accurate too. You can even adjust the alignment of the table insert so that it is exactly level with the table and the riving knife alignment. In one of the reviews, I read that a guy was having trouble keeping air in the tires, on my saw there are no valve stems on the tires at all. They are rubber, have tread, and have a bit of give, but they appear to be completely maintenance free and can't leak because there is nothing to leak. Plan on spending a while adjusting the saw following the clearly documented steps in the user guide, and be pleased that you can make the adjustments. Most of the adjustments on my saw were pretty close or right on right out of the box, but still your going to want to go through and check every one. To do this you will want to have a combination square, an adjustable wrench and both philips and regular screw drivers. The stand is really nice and Very solid. It also has adjustments for level.the directions ate ok, but I found that several times I used the wrong length bolt or had it inverted 180 out. Honestly, I followed the directions and still managed to have to redo a couple steps. The base is far more difficult than adjusting the saw. The soft start motor is very nice. When you flip the switch it starts immediately but spools up to operating speed over about 3 seconds. I'm very happy with my purchase and Home Depot was very helpful getting it into the Suburban. The box is 39.5L x 30.5W x 21H so don't show up with a little car. One last thing- the saw even has a little yellow circle about 4 inches in front off the blade. With this you can use a number 2 pencil and a straight edge and draw precut lines on eather side of the saw blade

Mixed emotions about this saw.
No. 1 problem: The tires quickly deflate after a few days. The valve stems are on the inside blocked by the axle, so its impossible to inflate properly unless the wheels are removed. I have taken the tires off and cleaned them thoroughly but they still deflate. The motor, bed and accessories are superior to the Ridgid table saw with cart, well worth more than the $100 price difference. However, the problem with the tires makes the overall experience a bust.

Powerful jobsite saw
The Bosch table saw is a very good jobsite saw. Cuts oak and does not bog down. Very user friendly and the gravity rise stand makes for easy storage and moving from site to site a breeze. Highly recommend.

Great design and fairly lightweight
The table saw itself is well-designed and was in perfect alignment out of the box. The optional rear outfeed and left side extensions should be standard -- your need them -- especially the rear outfeed extension. Those accessories are strong and well-made. The "gravity-rise" stand makes the saw easy to move and set up. It enables to saw to fold 90 degrees and makes garage storage easy.

Not a quality product
I have had this saw for 4 years. It has burned up twice. I use the saw primarily for ripping birch plywood for cabinets. The first time it quit was at 13 months. It was down for 3 weeks being repaired. Now it is burning out again. After reading reviews this seems to be a common problem. Unfortunately you can't buy the motor as an assembly and replace it. You have to rebuild. I will keep the stand, and find a decent saw to put on it. I will also buy the rigid table saw. According to the reviews it is a better machine. with a much better warranty.

Easy setup and easy storage
I work in a 2 car garage and space is highly valuable. This setups up quickly and tucks away neatly in the corner. The stand makes it well balanced and the saw is secured. Been using it for over a year consistently and have made about a dozen cabinets without a problem. I did get a Forrest box toothed saw to do more precise cuts.

bosch 120v 10in. table saw w/ gravit rise
This table saw is great! We work out of a box truck and this saw is great for wheeling on and off of a platform. Very stable and extremely easy to set up just about anywhere with the adjustable rubber stoppers on the non-wheel side of the base when stood up. I would recommend this saw to anyone who has to use a table saw on a daily basis. some things just can't be done with a skill saw. If it came down to skill versus table, you'd find me at the table with a knife and fork in my hand!
