Bosch GTS1031 Jobsite Table Saw Review Roundup

Bosch GTS1031Judging by the customer reviews of the Bosch GTS1031 table saw, it seems this model is a bit hit and miss with users so far. Bosch designed the Bosch GTS1031 with portability in mind while not sacrificing performance and precision and so we take a look below to see if they achieved this. Firstly though, let’s check some basic specs for the Bosch GTS1031.

This jobsite table saw offers a balanced one-handed carry handle in a compact design for ease of transport. The unit can be stored on its side also to save space and comes with a steel base for durability. It has a self-aligning, square lock rip fence, expanding table top, 18 inch rip capacity and smart guard. Everything you would probably expect from the Bosch brand. So how did it stack up with the customers that bought it? Keep reading to find out.

Bosch GTS1031

The GTS1031 only had 8 user reviews at the time of writing and the scores were a mixed bag. From those 8 reviewers 2 gave a 5 star rating, 4 awarded 4 stars and 2 people gave only 1 star. No 2 or 3 stars were awarded. This gave the Bosch table saw an overall rating of 3.5 stars from 5. Certainly not the best, but not the worst either.

Reading through the review comments it seems the strong points of the Bosch GTS1031 are its precision in cutting and the storage area underneath the unit.

“The alignments are right on the money and I absolutely love how all the accessories store underneath the saw…”

“Great power- provides nice clean cuts…”

“The saw cut beautifully. I used three difference kinds of wood, ripped them, resawed them, even did a little rabbet and the blade cut true and easy. It left no burn marks and did a good job…”

The ease of use also came into some praise:

“Easily assembled – It took about 15 minutes to put together…”

“Versatile and portable. Can be easily carried and transported…”

However not all comments were positive such as the person below that was not too impressed with the miter gauge:

“It doesn’t come with the best miter gauge but, then again, what saw in this price range “does” come with a decent miter gauge?”

While most reviewers agree that the Bosch GTS1031 has a great design, not all agreed that the quality of build was up to scratch…

“The quality of manufacturing and assembly is far short of “adequate”…”

“First off the saw is below par on quality…”

“I expected it to be built and feel much more sturdy than it is…”

“Right out the box the cable holder/metal tabs were bent…”

Judging by the even number of positives and negative points coming from the reviews as we write this, it is probably hard to recommend the Bosch GTS1031 table saw over some other models in its price range such as the Bosch 4100-09 or DEWALT DW744XRS. However due to the low number of reviewers currently for this product we will check back in the future to see if this changes but the low number of reviews could be telling enough that the Bosch GTS1031 is one table saw to avoid.
