12 Amp Corded 8-1/2 in. Single Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw with 48-Tooth Carbide Blade is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost the best Have only tried this 8.5" sliding miter saw one week but happy with the ease of carry, length of slide, flexibility of bevel and angle movement and a few other positives. The std 40 tooth construction blade is likely OK for construction work.. but not fine finishing. Bosch direct does not have a 8.5" blade for finishing work.. only 8 and 9". With two new complete shoulders ease of carry is important........ The saw does not yet cut as smoothly as my former model 2013 Makita sliding 10" but maybe a better finishing blade will work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Miter Saw! After looking at the many different miter saw options, I decided to give the saw a go. What a terrific saw. Super accurate & easy to use. Comes with an owners manual that is very well written and highly detailed. This saw is definitely old school... built very sturdy and has no gimmicky features... I've been using the saw for a major home renovation, including a lot of trim work, and this saw makes highly accurate cuts. I replaced the stock blade with a Freud. Cuts so smooth and accurate on trim you can barely see where the cut is when you put the two pieces together. I've read some of the complaints about this saw that I'd like to address... 1) no laser... Who cares! One thing I LOVE about this saw is that if you are having any problems lining up the blade to the mark, you can look straight down through the saw housing from above and see exactly where the blade is contacting the wood. Its a simple feature, its brilliant, and negates the need for a laser which is just another thing to go wrong anyways. 2) not being able to bevel in both directions. Again, who cares? Professional carpenters have been using single sided bevel miter saws for decades without tearing their hair out... its really no big deal. To me, this saw seems designed to be low on frills, high on accuracy and performance, which is exactly what I was looking for. The features is does come with are very practical and make using the saw a joy. My only regret is that I didn't get this saw sooner. TIP: if you've got some serious work ahead of you, get the BOSH miter saw stand to go with this saw. Makes working with longer pieces super easy. BOSCH, I love this saw and wouldn't change a thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bosch reduced dust collection options for America? This would be a great saw except Bosch appears to go out of its way to reduce the ability of contractors in America to get adequate dust collection from the saw. The UK version has a much more advanced dust management system. I guess Bosch doesn't understand that one of the primary drivers of market share to companies like Festool and Sawstop is their attention to dust control.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from CM8S Does not have laser adaptability; WHY ??? Great Bosch miter saw....BUT--NO Laser available. ??? Why, all other Bosch miter saws have this adaptability ???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cm8s As I am a diy'er, I haven't used it, only to set it in my work area and to check for accuracy. It was bought to replace a saw I'd had for many years,it was choosing for the features I needed and didn't have on old saw. Next year I may get some more use out of it and also when I retire. I choose Bosh because of the quality I know I can rely on, it's a pity I couldn't justify the next model up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great saw As a trim carpenter this is a tool I use everyday and it is one of the best saws I have ever used. It has all the angles and degrees I need for my job like crown angles. The only thing I would change is the internal blade guard, certain material requires me to raise the guard to see before I cut which is impossible with this saw. That is the only reason it's getting 4 stars instead of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
