Summary: I litachi tools but fell this model lacks the durability to carry the name. I have worked with Hitachi tools for over 25 yrs and would rank them high on the list but the C8FSE 8-1/2" Sliding Compound Miter Saw needs to go back for redesign.
The availabilty of an accessory lazer light would be an advanatage

Summary: In addition to the above comment, a means to accurately determine the depth of a dado cut without resorting to running a test piece through the machine to make that determination would be advantageous. This could be done through an accessory. I found the base machine accurate and a delight to use.
Summary: I have owned this saw for over 20 years. I believe I bought it when it first came out, or close to it. I am a finish carpenter and used the saw everyday, all day to trim houses. Easiest saw to use for trim I have ever owned. Dependable and low maintenance. Very durable.
It is the best silde compound miter saw I have ever used

Summary: The Hitachi C8FSE 8-1/2" Sliding Compound Miter Saw has such a dependability on accuracy and ease of use that is unbelievable to have survived in the market for so long. I have the good fortune of owning one and it has saved my day on the job several times.
Summary: I have had this saw for less than a year and am having trouble with it cutting at a 90 degree angle. If I get it right and have to change the angle then I have the problem of getting it back to the 90 degree. Haven't figured out how to change the 90 degree setting.
