Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for my use Overall this has been the perfect choice for my current project of overhauling a duplex. I choose it because I wanted a sliding compound miter saw that wasn't too expensive and was a lot more portable than a full size 10 or 12 inch model. It cuts everything smoothly with ease, even treated 2x12s. My only issue is that the switch should be much more impervious to saw dust as my electric brake often doesn't kick in as it should and I've been told by a Hitachi rep that the switch is getting saw dust in it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair On the scale of 1-10 I’d give the saw 6. The laser beam isn’t square to the pencil line off my precision square. The cuts are not truly square either. The hold down clamp is rather Mickey-mouse as well. With that said however, the saw performs quite well for cuts that do not require close precision.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from C8FSHE Miter Saw The first saw I received was 3/32" inch out of alignment front to back (no way to adjust this), the lens was off the light and the sliding action was rough. Sent saw back and received another new one.The second saw was a good usable saw. I think products need more alignment checks before shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features. My Pastor requested I make an altar for the church, designed by an architect. I had a 10" radial arm saw that was about 25 years old and not accurate enough to provide the required miter joints. I bought a Hitachi 8 1/2" C8FSHE Sliding Compound Miter Saw which had the ability to execute the accurate compound miter joints required. A great tool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An amazing capacity saw for a very low price! My father had this saw as I was growing up. We had used that saw for every thing.That same saw never had a flaw. It still is in use with my brother whom is now a contractor. So when it came time to buy mine it was not hard to choose. However as I was looking at this smaller saw the tool rep told me that the motor in the larger saw was much better. And during the demo I could tell right away that the bigger saw had much nicer features, I just wish the smaller saw had them. If it did I would have no problems spending more money and knowing I had the absolute best small compound miter saw in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable I built a cabins entire interior with this saw. It's performance was outstanding. Anyone requiring finishing an interior will love this device. It's accurate, durable, and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight precision tool This saw is a huge improvement over my previous one. It appears to be made with precision and the laser guide is very helpful. It is light enough to move easily. The dust collection system using just the bag does not seem to collect much dust but I have not used it with a vacuum system. The 8 1/2 inch blades are somewhat difficult to find.
