Bosch Mitre Saw Reviews

We all know that there are a lot of people who like certain brands and Bosch is certainly one of those. Many people who work with us prefer Bosch. I have used a number of their mitre saws and they are generally very good to work with. Almost all of my gardening tools are from this brand, and they seldom disappoint.

Price wise they probably sit at the medium range. They are certainly more expensive than the Evolution brand, and around the same sort of price point as brands like Makita and Metabo.

The Bosch basic compound mitre saws start at around £120 and the more advanced compound sliding mitre saws will set you back £225-500 depending on exactly what features you are looking for. Bosch also do a very interesting cordless range.

Below we have reviewed 3 of their best selling, and more affordable saws across the different types of mitre saws. As you can see from the image above, these are good looking saws that have been made, by a well recognised and a high quality brand. This is supported by many of the reviews that we have read.
