Package comprises the GCM 12 GDL Mitre saw and the GTA 2500 W gravity rise mitre saw stand
GCM 12 GDL mitre saw
A unique saw with a very special 'Axial-Glide' system that gives the smoothest, precise cutting action of any of the mitre saws on the market today. Guided by means of a glide arm, mounted on sealed bearings and made from robust die-cast aluminium, it is maintenance-free and guaranteed to be smooth and accurate running for a lifetime of cutting. It has large capacities and a wide angle range plus dual laser-line for precise line-up before cutting and groove function. The machine saves space as it can be positioned against a wall. All controls are at the front and the scales and positive lock handles make setting the machine easy. Fitted with integrated material supports right and left of the main table, it has a back fence with a total length of 1,016mm to give maximum work support. The glide system is lockable for transport.
GTA 2500 W gravity rise stand
Combines transport without the need for lifting, working with full support of workpieces beyond a machine base and storage. It is also very quick and easy to set up and breakdown. Two universal tool mounts allow a mitre saw to be secured (other similar items could be made to fit), whilst built into both ends of the top are adjustable supports with repetitive stops enabling long pieces of wood to be supported safely while cutting. The tubular stand construction gives a very sturdy working base, once folded it resembles a sack truck fitted with two 8" pneumatic tyres that make transporting, even over rough ground, a simple job. In set-up two levelling feet ensure stability.Supplied with 60T TCT saw blade, dust bag and quick clamp

Excellent saw, you will not be disappointed.Having read loads of reviews on 12" mitre saws I decided on the Bosch. It ticked all the same boxes as the others, but the clincher was the arm mechanism. When I got it I was very impressed, better than I was expecting as it's very smooth (adjustable damping) and accurate straight out of the box. I checked everything for square, made some test cuts and adjusted nothing. First job was some gloss white pelmets, clean cuts time after time with the supplied blade. The space saving design of the arm is very useful when working indoors as you still have room to work. The trolley is very sturdy and well designed, and goes in and out of the van with the saw still mounted very easily single handed.

Bosch GCM 12GDL Axial Glide Mitre Saw + GTA2500W Stand.Purchased this saw to go into a busy workshop, alongside 4 other mitre saws, (2 chop saw type + 2 rail type). One of the main reasons for buying this saw, was the ability to be able to put this saw right up against the wall, but still be able to make sliding mitre cuts without having to have the saw about 300mm from the wall, as in the case of normal rail type saws. That said, this is without doubt, THE best mitre saw that we have ever had.
