Excellent for my use

  • Summary: 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.

Smaller / more portable than my old saw

Christopher J. Heaton, Amazon

  • Summary: Just sold my 20 year old Dewalt 10" and bought this saw. So far, so good! The laser is great (my eyes aren't getting any younger). The motor sounds great and the saw cuts nicely. It does appear that the blade will need some adjustment. A contractor friend who has used these saws says they can be adjusted so based on other reviews I'd say be prepared to review and tweak settings. The best thing about this saw is it's size.

  • Summary: I am older and the 8.5 inch is light and mobile. I like the laser and light, both are very helpful

Best of five mitre saws I own.

  • Summary: I wanted a quality light weight compound slide saw that is easily carried and makes precise cuts on stair treads that are 1"x 11 3/8" wide oak. This 32 lb. saw will make a precise cut. My back loves it!

Worst saw imaginable

dnthink2ic, Amazon

  • Summary: This saw is terrible. The first one I received did not work correctly because the blade guard would not retract so I sent it back. The second one has all the problems everyone else found. It needed to be adjusted from cut one as it was not set up square in any way. Even after adjusting it to square if you make a cut and then run the blade through a second time it cuts on a slightly different angle as though there is wobble in the blade.

Fair

  • Summary: On the scale of 1-10 I\u2019d give the saw 6. The laser beam isn\u2019t 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.

C8FSHE Miter Saw

toolguy, Hitachi Power Tools
7 February 2013
  • Summary: 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.
