What Customers Are Saying

“Bosch continues to be a superior manufacturer with precision tools” – Vincent M.

“Right out of the box this saw was awesome!” – R. Hartman

The Bosch GTS1031 has received mostly positive reviews and ratings online, and most online consumers have had nothing but good things to say about this saw. The most consistent compliment given to this saw was that its design was well thought out. While it packs many features that are standard on a table saw in this price range, most of the extras and features are well built and thoroughly thought over, like the on-board storage. The kind of thought that Bosch put into designing this product stands out in the eyes of consumers, and that attention to detail is always appreciated.

The quality of many of the extras is exceptional, but the miter gauge received a few complaints, generally that Bosch could have placed a higher quality gauge on the saw. Every other accessory and add-on was well-spoken of in online reviews.

Out of the few complaints that consumers had about the Bosch GTS 1031, there were only two that consistently popped up. The first was that only one side of the table is expandable, limiting workspace on the saw. The other consistent complaint was that there is only one carrying handle. Many online users felt a second handle on the other side of the table should have been added. This seems like an oversight rather than an intentional design feature, considering the fact that despite its compact frame, the table saw is still a little large and bulky.

Pros:

  • Easily assembled
  • Extremely sturdy
  • Super powerful
  • On-deck storage
  • Blade bevels
  • Exhaust port can have bag attached
  • Well-placed power cord
  • Safety lock on power switch

Cons:

  • Table expands in one direction
  • One carrying handle
  • A little small, even for a compact

Recommendation

The Bosch GTS1031 portable jobsite table saw is a very capable table saw that delivers a lot of saw for a little price. The 10-inch blade with bevel allows for a variety of rips and crosscuts. The expandable table increases your work area while the compact design keeps it from requiring too much space.

This all-steel unique table saw will do the work that many more expensive table saws do, and at a fraction of the price. If you are in need of a compact quality saw with the power and versatility to perform large and small jobs, then the Bosch GTS1031 is it.
