The Bosch Active Response Technology platform helps reduce the risk of injury to users by combining advanced Bosch sensors and electronics with mechanical injury-prevention systems. The REAXX™ table saw detects human flesh that comes in contact with the blade and rapidly drops the saw blade below the tabletop. This high-speed action helps mitigate the potential of serious user injury and occurs without damaging the blade. After activation, the system can be reset in less than 60 seconds. A dual-activation cartridge enables two incidents before a replacement cartridge is needed.

KEY FEATURES

  • Rapidly drops blade below tabletop upon flesh detection without damaging the blade
  • Quick reset in 60 seconds or less after activation

Bosch GTS1031 10-Inch Portable Jobsite Table Saw

My friends and I have put about 800 ft. of lumber through this table saw. Most of the stuff we cut was 4x material, but we also cut some hard stuff, like maple plywood and oak.

Here’s our take on this portable saw –

  • It’s truly a self-contained saw. Everything you need is on the saw.
  • It fits under a work table. It can be stored on its side.
  • With its compact frame, this saw is easy to carry and use.
  • It’s a portable saw that can serve as the primary saw for a small shop. Its accuracy is dead-on!
  • The motor is smooth and powerful.
  • The lever on the fence is very tight. When using the saw for the first few times, use both hands to release the fence lever. After the break-in period, it’s easy to release the fence lever.

If you’re in the market for a portable table saw or a table saw for a small shop or home, this would make a fine choice.
