I really can’t tell you much about the Bosch or Dewalt except that I did compare basically the same three saws when it was time to replace my old Dewalt. I used my Dewalt for years on the jobsite and it was OK. That’s about all I can say; it was not the slider or the top of the line, but it did OK for what it was.

When I decided to replace it and upgrade to a slider, I first looked at the Bosch mounted on the Bosch Gravity rise stand. I really liked the set up together, and every tool I’ve owned that’s Bosch I’ve been more then pleased with. But the more I looked at the Hitachi C12RSH, the more I liked the features, so finally ended up getting the Hitachi saw and purchased the Bosch T4B gravity rise stand separately. I have been really pleased with both. I had to modify the mounting a little for the Hitachi saw, but it works perfectly and have been totally impressed with the accuracy of the saw. Right out of the box with very little adjustments and the saw has performed to my total satisfaction. How the Hitachi compared to the Bosch or Dewalt, I have no idea, but for the money invested, I was not dissapointed at all in my decision.

And I have to give an A1 on the stand also. It makes a heavy combo with the saw, but it rolls around very easily and very stable when using. I’ve sure the Bosch combo would work great as well.

Hope some of the other LJ’s will be able to give you some info on the other saws. Good luck
