    Evening all, I`ve been looking at the Bosch gcm10s, and was wondering if anyone had a good/bad word on them, cheers

    I've got one.

    Nothing exceptional but equally nothing wrong with it. Better than the Dewalt saw I owned previously. Cuts accurately and runs smoothly. It also fits well on my Dewalt legs that I got with the Dewalt saw.

    I have one and as the previous guy said i used it to replace a dewalt (707?)

    It is a much better saw then the dewalt .Smooth action and a lot of features that the 707 doesnt have + 3 years warranty

    Down side it I broke the transport lock end as it got stuck .Although it still works

    God forbid it got stole !!! I would buy another

    I also have one, with the Bosch stand. In general a great piece of kit. Few small criticisms:

    1. The extractor/dust bag attachment is not positioned well. It can get in the way a bit depending on the angle you are cutting at (just menas having to reposition).

    2. The laser isn't very clear in brighter light. I don't bother using it.

    3. The Bosch clamp supplied is pretty useless.

    4. The fence should be higher.

    That said, would I buy another? Absolutely.

    Hope that's helpful.

    Cheers guys for taking the time. All seems fairly positive, apart from a few niggles, nothing to worry about. I was just wondering if the dewalt had improved any, doesn`t seem so, cheers again.
