One of the Most Powerful Table Saws in its Class

When tested head to head against competitors, the Bosch 4100-10 had no trouble with thick oak, and it performed exceptionally well on flimsy, oversized plywood. The combination of the 15-amp motor, 4.0 Max HP and 3,650 RPM speed can handle just about anything you throw at it.

Large Metal Surface Top

The cast aluminum top is large enough to work comfortably. The right side rip capacity is 25 inches, making it suitable to for most jobsite rip-cutting applications. It has a coated finish allowing for smooth operations.

Advanced Circuitry

From a soft motor start-up to constant response circuitry for speed maintenance under any load, the Bosch provides a five-star user experience. Don’t let the slow start fool you, though. This thing has a quick ramp-up. The load responsiveness means that you’ll have no more tripped circuit breakers, either!


The weight of the saw is just 58 pounds and when you include all of the equipment and the stand, you’re looking at 92 pounds. The Gravity-Rise Wheeled Stand allows for easy transport with a simple set up and take down in mere seconds. The saw stand also has the option for height adjustments.

Onboard Storage

Keep all of your accessories organized and at the ready.

SquareLock Rip Fence

The advanced engineering and design of this rip fence allow for superior clamping and precise accuracy. You can operate the saw one-handed, and the included riving knife and anti-kickback pawls offer protection from kickback.

Arbor Lock

Arbor lock mechanism simplifies blade-changing operations, and the blade wrench is also located onboard.


  • The included miter gauge is longer and heavier, making it better quality than most out-of-the-box inclusions
  • One of the most powerful motors in its class with the ability to cut through just about anything with the ease of butter.
  • Constant response circuitry manages the load and maintains a consistent speed
  • High rip capacity for a portable saw
  • Lightweight and easy to move with a one-handle release system
  • Onboard storage
  • Adjustable stand height
  • Dado blade capability
  • Quiet motor for a portable saw
  • Heavy gauge steel construction that’s still lightweight
  • Rough-terrain wheels


  • Small surface top without a lot of clearance between the front of the saw and the blade, so you have to be careful with tipping when you’re starting a cut. This is relatively standard among jobsite saws, but some users found this particular set up less convenient.
  • Ruler guides are more confusing than other models.
  • Stand mechanism isn’t intuitive.
  • Rip fence can be difficult to adjust.


If you want power and versatility combined into one, the Bosch 4100-10 is a top pick. Whenever a manufacturer makes improvements on something that was already great, it makes stop and take notice. We love innovation, and Bosch is a leader in this category.


+What’s the difference between the older 4100-09 model vs. the 4100-10?

Bosch is discontinuing the 4100-09 and replacing it altogether with the 4100-10. The critical difference is in the stand. The new model boasts a lighter version, enhancing its portability and making it easier to move around job sites. It’s also about 10 pounds lighter, thanks to the stand upgrade.

For more context, the 4100-09 stand has a gravity rise wheeled stand TS2100. The 4100-10 comes with GTA47W Gravity-Rise Wheeled Stand.

Another notable difference is that Bosch has chosen to bundle a 24-tooth blade instead of the 40-tooth blade that comes with the 4100-09. This is due to customer feedback and applications. They noted that most of their users preferred the 24-tooth blade for rip-cutting.

+What is the width of the blade included?

The included blade is a 10” diameter, and it’s a standard 1/8” width kerf blade.

+What is the max ripping capacity of the blade on the right and left?

The max ripping capacity to the right is 25 inches and 8.5 inches to the left.

+What are the dust collection options?

According to Bosch customer service, this model is compatible with Vacuum Hoses-Common 2-1/2" Vacuum Hoses, Vacuum Hose Adapter for 35 mm Vacuum Cleaner Hoses -VAC004 and Dust Bag-TS1004.

+Does the riving knife need to be removed for dado cuts?

No, the saw riving knife can’t be removed. For dado cutting, slide the riving knife all the way down the table top.

+Where is the Bosch 4100 manufactured?

This machine is manufactured in China.
