Everyone in the industry knows the biggest danger of working with a table saw, it’s losing your finger. Each year 65,000 people are injured from using a table saw. That’s just about 1 person every 8 minutes. Nothing can take back the loss you incur from losing a finger and no one should have to go through it. That’s why Bosch has the developed the Bosch GTS1041A REAXX Jobsite Table Saw. The REAXX table saw is designed with Active Response Technology.
When the blade comes in contact with skin, the Bosch GTS1041A immediately retracts the blade under the table with no blade damage incurred. The mechanics behind the Active Response Technology are referred to as “activation cartridges”. These cartridges force the drop arm below the table and away from the user’s exposed body part. Each cartridge unit includes two-single shot cylinders which allow you two instances of contact with skin before the cartridge will need to be replaced.
Another great feature of this saw is its quick reset after the blade drops under the saw. The system could be reset in less than 60 seconds with all parts and instructions located onboard the tool including a control panel. The control panel has an LED lighted display and indicates saw status to the operator. Various colors well indicate various states of the saw including: needing service or being ready to use.
Bosch didn’t just start from scratch when it came to the core design of this saw either. Bosch incorporated all of the well-liked features of the 4100 series saw into the GTS1041A to give the end user a complete all in one package of performance, portability and now improved user safety. The GTS1041A features the Smart Guard System. The Smart Guard System encompasses a modular blade guard, riving knife and anti-kick pawls that provide flexible protection options for the user.
It would be a crime not to mention the specs on this innovative new product. The Bosch GTS1041A Reaxx table saw operates on 15 Amp 4HP 3,650 RPM motor that gives you the power you need for ripping through and accommodates either fine or rough carpentry.
