Product Description

Amazon.com
We think this benchtop is actually a cabinet saw in a compact, totally portable disguise. Its looks are completely deceiving, because it handles any job a big saw can, yet itís compact for the home workshop and super convenient to take to a job site.
First, itís got the largest table surface in the worksite class, but lift the lock handle and open out the built-in extension rails and, believe it or not, youíre running sheet goods with a 25-inch rip capacity. The table surface is smooth as glass, and with a coat of wax on it, itís superb. The extension rails ride effortlessly and lock securely, and the extension doesnít give even under a full sheet of 3/4-ply. Bosch sells auxiliary left-side and rear supports for unbeatable capacity and stability.

The fence, not even considering that itís on a benchtop, is awesome. It locks front and back, slides like a dream, detaches and seats without any struggle, stores neatly right on board, and the viewer has a great magnifying lens (though none of us will admit we need it yet) for ultra-accurate fence settings. Out of the box, our fence was totally true and perpendicular to the blade. We like the substantial height of it, and it will easily accommodate any type of auxiliary fence you might want to put on it. The miter gauge is sturdier than what we usually see on a benchtop, and itís longer, too, for a little more room at the infeed and more stability, too. Positive stops were right on when we checked ours out of the box, but of course, youíll want to check yours anyway. And like the fence, the miter gauge stores neatly right on the saw base.

Startup is jar-free, and itís surprisingly quiet for a 15-amp saw, even under a full load. We didnít experience any bogging down at all in our trials, and Bosch says thatís due to what they call Constant Response Circuitry. Weíre just toolhounds here, not rocket scientists, but it has something to do with monitoring the torque demand on the machine and instantly adjusting to deliver enough power for a totally consistent speed. Itís direct drive, of course, yet we felt no-óand we mean zeroó-vibration. Now, that could be because itís heavier than youíd expect a worksite saw to be, but because of the wheeled stand, thatís definitely not a detractor.

Once the saw is mounted to this ingenious stand (and thatís not a taxing task), it only takes seconds to set up or break down with practically no effort. It actually uses the sawís weight to raise and lower it, and itís perfectly balanced and provides an ergonomically comfortable work height. Big, beefy, treaded pneumatic tires roll beautifully over even the most rugged jobsite surfaces.

Bosch probably intended this as a worksite saw, but we think itís ideal too for the home woodworker and do-it-yourselfer, especially one whoís tight on space. The stand lets you fold it up and roll it out of the way when your work is done. Absolutely canít go wrong with this one.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

 Bosch knocks one out of the ballpark, May 17, 2005
Reviewer: J. Seaman "Jack of all trades, master of none"

I have never written a review before but this saw is so good I felt I had to share the news. Everything about this saw is well thought out. Right of the box it was ready to go. The fence is good. The miter gauge is good. The clever built in extension of the right table is very nice. Everything stows on the saw when you put it away. Don't get me wrong, this is no Unisaw, and like all portable saws, it's noisy. But it's a great saw for the jobsite or small shop. Combine this with a good miter saw, and you can do most anything. As good as this saw is, I was even more impressed with the new gravity-rise stand. I have a good fold-up-and-wheel-away stand for my miter saw, but this stand is just amazing. It is very solid, beautifuly built, and folds and unfolds easier than anything I have ever seen. If you want a good basic table saw that will stow away easily, I don't think there is anything out there that comes close. I love it!

The best on the market !!!! , May 19, 2005
Reviewer: Tool Addict
I was looking for a good quality portable table saw for my small shop. Several years ago I had purchased a Hitachi table saw (C10RA2) believing that this was the best saw on the market to fulfill my needs. I was wrong. It was a piece of junk that I wasted $300.00 on. It was not portable. The miter gauge had so much slop in it that it was useless. The miter track was an unusual size. And the fence was horrible. While the saw packed a lot of power, it lacked the overall accessories that I was looking for. It is now sitting in a landfill somewhere.

The bread and butter of any shop is a good table saw. And I found one great replacement in the Bosch 4000-09. It has a soft start motor, a good fitting miter gauge with very little slop, a good quality fence that can be easily expanded to cut twenty plus inches, a large table surface, and blade guard that is easy to put on and take off. The people who designed this saw must have received a lot of input from carpenters, woodworkers, and home improvement enthusiasts. There is a lot of detail in this saw that was simply not in the Hitachi. When the miter gauge is not in use, it is stored at the base in a specially designed slot with a catch to keep the miter gauge in place when the saw is moved. There also is a specially designed place to put the rip fence on the side of the saw when it is not in use. In the back of the saw there is place to wrap the cord. And there is a place where you can put extra blades. The allen head screws on the saw are the same size, and you guessed it, Bosch even has a specially designed slot for the allen wrench.

When I first purchased the saw and put to work in my shop, I was amazed how easy it was to get to the on board accessories. Everything flowed so well when I had to switch from miter gauge, rip fence, and removing the blade guard. No twisting, bending, or fighting to put things on or take things off. This saw had just as much power as the Hitachi, but it was quieter. The blade that comes with the saw is of high quality, I ripped through Oak and Cherry like a hot knife through butter. The gravity rise stand is heavy duty, easy to assemble, and easy to fold. While the stand looks big, heavy, and cumbersome, it is surprisingly nimble and easy to move.

You can learn from my mistake; Buy a cheap saw and you will find out real quickly that you just made a $300.00 mistake. Or you can invest wisely, spend a few more bucks, and buy a quality machine that can make you're job easier or hobby that much more enjoyable. The Bosch 4000-9 is simply the alpha male of the pack !!!!

 great saw, March 14, 2006
Reviewer: F. Asmussen

great saw, great price. As a contractor I view tool purchases as a necessary evil, yet, this Bosch tool is an exceptional item, well constructed, well thought out.

Great saw, could use a tiny bit of refinement, March 10, 2006
Reviewer: Troy C. Wuelfing

I have only used the saw a few times. I have to say that so far it has performed flawlessly. For a portable saw it has more power than I expected. The fence is solid and doesn't have any play in it. The other portable saw I had the handle snapped off the fence, no worries about that happening with this saw.

I rated this a 4 star product, however I don't have any complaints. For the same price you get about 1/2 the value from the comparable dewalt saw. I deducted a star because I think it could be a little more refined. I would like to see a cord attachment like you find on the worm drive saws. I would like to see a taller fence. There is plenty of room where it is stored.

I think for the price it could include a few of the accessories that are listed. Like the dust bag, out feed table extension and left side table extension.

I have modified the sliding table extension to accommodate a router table for my Bosch router. With a little ingenuity you can use the table saw fence as a non split router table fence. Its not as good as a precision router table, but the opening in the table is perfect to let the router hang down in. I know this is a professional saw, and combo tools normally don't work out well, but the very heavy saw works well as a stable base for a nice portable router table. My next project is to refine my table setup and get a freud split router fence and set it up in the extension gap.

Best Portable Table Around, March 3, 2006
Reviewer: J. Hanson

I am a contractor/carpenter that does a lot of remodeling in older homes. I pulled my old Delta Table saw around for years. I wanted something more portable. THIS SAW IS IT!! I have already used it on two big remodel jobs and it does everything that I ask of it. It is super easy to adjust and so far, it has all the power that I need. Great saw and the gravity rise stand make this the perfect saw for whatever you need to rip or crosscut. It was listed #1 in one of my carpenter magazines and they are correct!!
