Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision at its best! This is an excellent saw. The ease of use, speed, comfort, quality and power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features for the size and price This is the perfect size for our smaller jobs or daily use, very good power and perfectly true right out of the box. We run a mid size construction company and this saw replaced a smaller sliding compound saw this is a nice improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very happy with my purchase I`ve had great results with this machine. It can do it all. I only wish it came with a fine tooth blade instead of the coarse cut blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased this for my husband to replace a smaller unit which finally gave out after many years of usage. Never had a problem and he loves the new larger model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put a Diablo blade on it and it is a perfect tool I used the factory blade for a week and it was good. I bought an 80T Diablo blade. It cuts mirror finishes on trim and rips through 2x4s. The angle and miter measurements are spot on. No trouble running base or trim. I love this saw and my 3 other Hitachi products (framing gun, skilsaw, and grinder.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like how this saw handles and runs. It does what I wanted. This is the first Hitachi power equipment I have purchased. I had a specific need when I was looking for a saw, and this one appeared to meet my criteria. I purchased this saw, and it has performed up to my expectations so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would have to give this product a 4.5 just remodeled my den and did crown molding and base molding. My only complaint would be that you only get one wood clamp and one wing nut to hold it in place. It would of been nice to have another wing nut so you can move the clamp from one side to another quicker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value Cuts great, love the laser, and one sweet piece for the price. However, it could stand to lose a few pounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 star Because Only giving this a 4 star rating because we have only had it for a couple of months, but so far so good we like it. Only down side we have is it's a bit heavy to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saw; great performance Great tool with a great warranty. Does everything I would expect from it. Can't comment on the durability, yet, as I've only had it a couple of weeks. But I liked it so much I went out and bought an Hitachi belt sander.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Operation The saw performs very well and maintains it's tight tolerances. It was accurate right out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good machine The Miter saw is fine, I’m happy with it, I use it for minor projects such as building a dog house, work benches, wooden planters, fences, nothing professional, so I don’t know how it will perform under continuous use. I had it stop in the middle of a cut once, but I think it was my bad because I didn’t let it gain the full speed before I started cutting. Like I mention before, I use it for building stuff as a hobby. Nice machine good warranty. If you are going to use it on a professional manner, I recomend the sliding one to help you with the big cuts. Over all, it is nice and I will definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight nice great saw only one fault no place to store wrench to take off blade had to wire tie to cord realy
Date published: 2014-07-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of saw for a small price The 12" blade makes it easy to cut wide boards without having to flip them. And the factory installed blade seems to be of good quality. Its great to be able to miter past 45 degrees, even compound miter goes past the mark. That is where I ran into the only option I do not care for. A cheap feeling piece of plastic incorporated onto the tilt bevel lock lever. It is intended to be a "micro-adjuster" to really dial in the accuracy. Seems like it should be able to slide far enough to disengage, but on mine it is always "in gear" and has to spin as you tilt the blade one way or the other. Saw is light weight and has a handle set up in a way that makes it easy enough to carry from one side of the job to the other without having to take a break halfway or schedule an appointment with your chiropractor. Laser line is right down the center, not off to one side of the blade, so you don't have to constantly guess where the blade with actually cut. And it is wired right in, no special batteries to buy. Nice, heavy, flexible power cord. Wish there was an storage spot right on the saw for the blade wrench, but it seems that is always the case. Saw powers up fast with very little noise. No screaming belt slipping and the blade brake is quick, but smooth, not like some I have witnessed that jerk the handle right out of your hand when it kicks in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This saw replaces an older Hitachi 10 inch saw without laser guide which I probably had for 20 years or so. This 12 inch saw is just what I needed and I can't say enough about it. It is easy to set up. It was accurate right out of the box. All the miter settings are right on. The saw is powerful to slice through an oak 4x4 with ease. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the dust collection. It does have a bag but I wanted to hook it up to a shop vac and none of the connectors I have fit the dust port. I will keep looking. Perhaps Hitachi could make reference to one in their manual if they know of one. All in all a great saw that fits my needs perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, versatile, sturdy. I just finished remodeling our bathroom and used this saw for all the trim and molding. It performed perfectly and I am very happy with it. It was smooth, powerful, and accurate. And compared to the yellow competitor, I found it to be a great value, considering how versatile it was. I've only had it a month, so I can't speak to it's durability yet, but it comes with an excellent warranty, so I'm not concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than dewalt I use several Dewalt Miter Saws at work, every day, They do the job and seem to hold up to heavy use. So I knew I needed a Miter saw for home and when shopping I saw that the Dewalts were over priced. I checked out the Hitachi and was impressed, build quality was better than dewalt, motor was stronger, features were the same but executed better on the Hitachi. the blade lock (for changing blades) was in a better spot, the compound cut swivels were designed for ease of use ....the laser is really nice and I like using it. I do wish there was a second laser one for right side of blade and one right side.
Date published: 2014-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for the money The laser marker is a great plus and is almost idiot proof once you learn how to best use it. The down sideof the saw is thatholders that support the material that you ar cutting is an after market item...should come with the saw not as an optional item.
Date published: 2014-05-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The 12" saw blade is a great feature for the price The bevel adjustments are a little difficult to adjust. I would recommend this product for the homeowner.
