Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great saw Bought this to replace an inherited Hitachi C8FB. The detente override is great when working with imperfect miter and butt joints. The depth control has a simple no-tool adjustment and can easily be flipped on and off. The bevel control is a lever that can be reached from the front of the saw, which makes it very easy and fast to set. Can be carried 1 handed with the top handle. The blade that comes with the saw should be replaced, it's not very good for finish work. May 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great saw Lightweight but sturdy. Easy to move around job site. No blade deflextion and accurate right out of box. Easy access to controls. Replaces makita 7 1/2 miter saw they don't make anymore that lasted only 3 years and they can't fix. Will see how this holds up April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy, accurate , and some thinknig went into the design! I wanted this saw to cut 12 inch wide boards and it has performed well. Even able to cut a 6x6 post (by turning). Accurate and well-placed and easy to read gages. Overall quality is good - its shy of excellent because of the plastic exhaust duct which is made of two halves which split when I put my vacuum hose in - have to keep it tight now with a clamp - will probably ask for a new exhaust piece. Its light-weight enough to carry around though a bit of an awkward shape. Blade that came with it is good quality and sharp. Cutting a tight angle from the vertical plane cut into the plastic kerf either side of the blade which is disappointing that Bosch engineers didn't design for that not to happen. October 20, 2015
