Bosch has introduced a new 10″ contractor table saw, the GTS1031, that they say redefines jobsite portability. The GTS1031 is designed to be durable, lightweight, and ergonomic enough for comfortable one-handed carrying.
The GTS1031 features a tabletop that expands up to 18″, an all-steel base, soft-grip handle, and an optimized center of gravity for easier one-handed carrying. It also features under-table storage for the included rip fence, miter gauge, blade change wrenches, push stick, and blade guard.
The rip fence is designed to slide smoothly and lock square to the table surface. As with the 4100-series table saw, the GTS1031 features a 3-position riving knife, easy-attach blade guard, and anti-kickback pawls.
You can use standard 10″ saw blades with the GTS1031, as well as dado stacks up to 8″ and 1/2″ wide. The saw has a 4.0 HP motor that spins at 5000 RPM.
The new saw is priced at $399 and is compatible with Bosch’s GTA500 folding table saw stand. A 24T blade is included with the package.
There’s also a nice preview video that shows the new saw in action:
