WOOD magazine review

Compact saw delivers big-time performance

Review Summary

We’ve used a Bosch 4100 portable tablesaw for years with great results, but the $500-plus price pushes it close to the cost of a traditional contractor-style saw. Bosch’s GTS1031 provides nearly the same performance as the 4100 in a smaller package—and with a smaller price tag. Bosch engineers cut the weight to 50 lbs by building the saw with a roll-cage-type frame rather than a closed cabinet. It’s easy to carry one-handed like a suitcase, even going up and down stairs. But it’s no toy.
This saw’s robust motor powered the thin-kerf blade through 2"-thick red oak without bogging down. The GTS1031 is accurate, compact, and solidly built, and we found ourselves using the three-position riving knife and blade guard regularly because they’re easy to use and remove. Plus, all the accessories store underneath the saw, keeping them protected during transport. One sacrifice you have to make with this saw: the 18" maximum rip capacity measures 7" less than the 4100, meaning you can’t rip to the midpoint of sheet goods.
