Compatible with part # 5412L; The most portable & versatile Miter Saw Stand available - with capacity to match!; Integrated rubber wheels for maximum portability; 6" adjustable leveling leg
There are lots of saw stands on the market, but this is the only one we've seen that can fold down without removing the saw. Then you just roll the whole assembly away on its solid rubber wheels. But if you do want to take the saw down, it only takes a couple of seconds to release it from the CamLock base. You can slide the saw all the way left or right if you need the outfeed support, too. While anyone would love this stand in the shop, it's at the jobsite that it rises to the occasionor lowers itselfon telescoping leveling legs that can accommodate up to six inches of surface difference, perfect for the homebuilder. It's lighter than you'd expect for a stand that will take on 500 pounds, too. Outfeed support reaches a nice 20-foot length. The CamLock base is universal and should fit any make of saw. Because of that and its fold-down ability, this stand gets our highest score.--Kris Jensen-Van HesteSee all Product description

Here is the NUMBER ONE thing you have to know about this stand. When you mount the saw, make 100% sure it is perfectly balanced front to back. My beautiful Bosch 5412L took a serious header off of it when I released the camlocks all the way -- a very sick feeling when your 65 pound 500 dollar saw tips backwards off your 250 dollar stand (and y'know, they don't bounce . . . ) A miscalculation on my part, bad one. Kudos to Bosch, after weeping bitterly for a few minutes, I set it back up on the stand, set it to zero bevel/miter, pulled out the combo square and the sucker was true, but that's a different review.
One last issue I had with the stand, two of the legs showed up with broken locking pins, so they won't lock out or up. This could be a bit of a safety issue and makes collapsing/setting up very tough. I called TracRac (Bosch first, but TracRac handles all this stuff) and they immediately promised two new legs would ship the next day. Good responsiveness. I'll repost if there's any trouble with the parts showing up.
The Good: Tough piece of hardware, well built, holds a lot of weight and provides a great support extension, wheels are a nice feature for portability of some very heavy sawage. Good customer service.
The Bad: Assembly a bit of a pain, but straightforward. Must be VERY cognizant of the balance front to back, especially with a sliding compound miter. Hard to catch falling saws, it turns out. This was my bust, but the manual could have been a little sterner about the warning . . . for dense folks like me. Broken locking pins were disappointing, but customer service was responsive.
Edit: Tracrac did a good job of getting the replacement legs out to me asap. Got them installed and everything works as advertised. I'll leave the rating at 4 for the assembly and poor leg design. Ultimately, if you buy this, at least you know Tracrac will make things right.
I do think the wheel design could be a bit better but I just carry it over to where I'm going to work anyway! It's light enough to do that but sets up very sturdy with adjustment on one leg for out-of-level situations.
Also has a repetitive cut stop but won't work for all applications of course.
The problem with the Bosch TracRac is those poor excuse of wheels they have on it. Try to wheel it around with a miter saw on it(especially a sliding compound miter saw. I can't tell you how many times I've turn it over and I'm pretty careful but until they repeal the law of gravity I'm going to have to live with it.
I like the weight, it's not so heavy you can't pick it up and move it around. It's easy to load and unload from my van(mini).
I like to see how the gravity rise table would work with the Miter Saw. I own one for my portable table saw and I love it. Now Bosch has one for miter saws. Oh well I guess I'll wait till I win the lottery. I'll live with my TracRac.
Because the saw is carried on and off the jobsite daily, the wheels and portability are critical. I have found it is easier to control by holding the legs extended, like a wheelbarrow. Going over rough ground is not as bad as one would expect, but the big problem I was having was that the locking caps on the wheels kept pulling off and this tended to bend the bracket. The problem was the hardness of the axle preventing the locking caps from getting a good hold. While I could have changed the axle for softer steel, I decided to stay with the stainless and drill out holes for cotter pins and washers to hold the wheels on the azle. This has solved the problem
It has been almost a year and a half, and my 12" dual slider just prooved to be too heavy and unwieldy for this base. Both an aluminum support and one of the legs ended up breaking while transporting to and from the job. So, I go the gravity base for the 12, which, by the was is not as nice a base, but is much easier to roll around and set-up.
TracRac was fantastic at getting me the right parts to repair my base, I mounted a 10" CMS on it, and am back in business.
