Beware Reconditioned
I bought a reconditioned model. I've bought reconditioned items before, but this saw was USED. It looks like someone literally dragged this thing down the road...upside down. I'm ok with "blemishes" but this was scraped and worn so bad that half of one of the screws on the motor housing is worn down in half. Clearly no one ever removed the motor housing to check the motor and bearings when it was "reconditioned". If I wanted a used saw, I would have saved some money and gone to [@]. Otherwise, the saw works well. I'm glad I got the 12" over the 10" due to the greater cutting depth. I can almost cut a 6x6 with this saw. Adjustment features on the front are also easy to use. The clamping feature is a bit lame, but works well enough for light trim pieces.

Really Nice
It's a great saw, I've been using bosch for many years and this is the best. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it arrived with a broken handle, I sent an email and no one ever responded.

Excellent Saw for the Price!
I have waited a few weeks to review. I am glad to report, that I cannot find any flaws with this saw. I bought the re-conditioned model because of the savings and the factory warranty. I wouldn't be able to tell if this saw was shipped new to me. Great performance, easy to use...has saved me time from my old saw. Exactly what I was hoping this saw would be! I am expecting many years of service out of this saw.

Rock solid and almost perfect
I tried them all this is the most accurate of all the major brands. It slides smoothly the table moves very easily (especially considering how big this thing is)The detents are dead on. [...]The manual was very clear on how to make the adjustments and it didn't take very long. The saw takes up quite a bit of room. 26" behind the fence, but it looks to be built to last and as I said it had the least deviation at full draw. I will trade durability and accuracy for a little space any day.

Refurbished to like new
Fast shipping, all parts were included in the box. Checked the settings on the blade and detents and didn't have to adjust anything. The blade is good for being stock, seems to have plenty of power. The Bosch 5312 has good build quality, I'm expecting to get many years of service from it. Overall great experience with CPO.

Great value for the money.
I am a commercial trim carpenter, so i have to have tools that preform the same day in and day out, this saw does exactly that. I have had this saw now for alittle over a week and it already has about 7,000 bd. ft. of trim that has been cut on it. It came out of the box only needing a minor adjustment to the fence, something a d.i.yer would have been fine with.
The only thing that i would change about this saw would be to add a permenant adjustable laser that you can turn on and off with a smaller rocker switch( much like the ones that are offered by dewalt and hitachi on there saws).
I would give this saw an A+ for all of the features that it has, and will recommend it to others that want to know my thoughts on it.

Great price, great shipping, great tool
I'm remodeling a 100+ year old farmhouse with all of the non sqaure and plumb issues that go with it. This saw powers through all of the cuts and the micro adjust makes it a simple matter to get the odd angles correct for a great finished look. The up-front controls make adjustments a snap.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
