Overview of the Bosch 4100

The Bosch 4100 is a foldable table saw featuring a 10inch blade. It is heavy, but the cart has wheels making it mobile, portable, and easy to store. See our great tips on storing power tools. The table saw is easy to move around due to the Gravity-rise wheeled stand. The one-handle release system is for speed.  It is a 15Amp saw that comes with a 4hp, producing 3,650 rotations per minute. The large cast aluminum top is spacious enough for large materials and has a rip capacity of 30 inches. 

The soft-start circuitry intensifies the motor start-up, giving you a constant speed. That reduces the chances of tripping a circuit breaker. The Smart Guard system makes up the safety features of the table saw. Its package includes a riving knife and anti-kickback pawls. They prevent kickbacks, and the guard assembly avoids contact between the user and the blade. It also gives visibility to the user. 

The blade guard also protects the material as you are cutting. The integrated sub-base gives you a stable and durable saw machine. The adjustable feet allow you to operate the saw machine at a convenient height. That is comfortable for the user due to the limited chances of straining your back. There is onboard storage that gives you space for your rip fence, miter gauge, extra blades, and push stick. 

Pros

  • Smart guard system
  • Constant speed
  • Portable
  • Stable and durable
  • Heavy-gauge steel construction

Cons

  • Hard to adjust when new
  • A bit heavy
  • A poor dust collection system
