Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 134 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A whole new level of quality This is by far the best saw I've ever had the pleasure of using. Right out of the box, everything is aligned perfectly, everything works smoothly, it's a flawless product. I watched lots of review videos before diving into this purchase. It took a month of thought, and it was well worth every penny. The glide system is so smooth while being perfectly solid without even so much as a hair of movement where there shouldn't be any. It weighs a lot, and is difficult to lift, but once it's in place, this thing ain't goin anywhere. The axial glide arms can literally be placed right up against a wall, without any fear of problems. I kept moving it back and forth to watch the arms move and it's a genius design to say the least. It has a soft start motor, which means you can place a coin on it's edge on the bed of the tool, and switch it on, without knocking the coin over. This is SO important! Not only does it show the sheer quality of the tool, it's also a lot easier on the circuit breaker since the tool isn't starting at full power. It builds up to full speed in 2 seconds and is ready to cut. My only tiny complaint is with the blade guard. It has these two little roller wheels on the bottom that vibrate every time you change the mitre detent. Very similar to what it sounds like when you accidentally kick a spring coil door stop (the good ol' style ones). I'm probably going to put a drop of caulking in there to provide a bit of friction. Overall, buy this saw, it's expensive, yes, but well worth it. February 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice features This robotic kinda arm is cool, im not much of a bosch, but after seeing this mitre saw and it's features, i'm getting one February 7, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the one that pays you back! Being a contractor, you get to work with all sorts of tools from all sorts of brands. I pay very close attention to details, and one thing that always stands out for me is how much time is spent just getting power tools started and working properly, or in turn explaining the procedure to new crew members. You pay an extra buck on Bosch tools, but it is so clear how much more money those tools bring in because of simplicity and time-saving, that I can see it in the numbers on paper. Highly recommended to anyone who is serious about their business. September 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't listen to the complainers This saw is a great saw. Quieter than my old dewalt yet still plenty of power. Do not listen to all the bad reviews out there. Yes it's heavy, it's a 12" in compound miter saw...what do you expect. If you want a saw that you can easily lug around go buy a 8" saw. Dewalts big arguement is the deflection in the saw. Yes there is deflection in the saw if you push the blade side to side but let's be honest who is pushing to the side when they make a cut. Also the dewalt 12" has the exact same deflection. Dust control. The bag collects some dust maybe 30% on a good day. I have mine hooked up to a rigid 5hp shop vac and it collects about 90%. Once I hookup a dust collector I'm sure that number will improve. The lapel which coat twice as much puts out the exact same dust. Just keep in mind that this is a woodworking tool and it cuts wood so there is going to be dust. There are a few upgrades you can make to capture more dust. February 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best miter saw on the market The best feature of this product is that you can set the miter saw flush against the wall. No space is needed behind the saw because there are no slide bars behind it as is the issue with almost all other miter saws. If you have limited space in your shop...this is the saw you want! Very smooth and accurate cuts right out of the box! The Home Depot price was the best I could find out there on the internet. December 18, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Saw I've been using this saw a year. I purchased it based on reviews, my need for higher capacity, the smaller footprint as compared to sliders, it's capability of being converted back and forth from chop saw to slider. Right out of the box, this tool impressed. It was heavy, but, once installed in its dedicated locations, it required no adjustments to true the blade etc. A year later it still runs true. Since then I've installed a Freud 12" blade to get even better cross cuts. I've gotten used to the sticky thumb switch. There remain two features that continue to trouble: dust collection and laser. The collection port is quite small and catches only some of the dust produced. The amount of dust collected decreases when using a back board. The laser draws a clearly visible line on workpieces but it seems off from the saw kerf by a 1/32 of an inch to the left. I think Bosch ought to redesign both the port and offer a better laser accessory. Otherwise, I am very happy with the performance this tool continues to put out. November 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by quite, smooth cutting , and give a great presence to the work place customers always compliment it October 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Miter Saw Made! I bought this miter saw within the past year to be able to cut 2 by 12's and miter 2 by 6's which I couldn't do with a 10 inch miter saw. I wanted this to be the last miter saw that I bought so I chose Bosch.because of its known quality. I also bought a gravity rise portable stand so I could wheel it around. Both the saw and stand are the best that I've owned. October 21, 2015
