Summary: Bought the miter saw to start a deck project and after using 3 times, the unit no longer works. I depress the trigger and the blades don't engage, lights are on, laser turns on, but still no blade engagement.
Summary: This saw has great features and at a good price and was described with the ability to cut miters that would fit perfect which is why I made this purchase. As I started checking out the Miter Stops I quickly noticed the joints did not fit tight. As I went through the saw checking for the saw and table to be square I found the problem that the slide, table,blade and the Laser were all out of square and Hitachi did not put any kind of adjustment on this saw except for the...
Summary: even if the sliding system is oon of the best I saw ... The hitachi tool have the same probleme the other. If you slide the miter a the maximun the saw twist, if you combien with the bevel feature it's worst.
Summary: I started purchasing Hitachi products several years ago. I have to say that I am consistantly impressed with each purchase. This is hands down the best compund miter saw I have used (with over 30 years of wood working experience).
I'm been a contractor over 20 years and the Miter Saw is the best saw I have ever purchased.

Summary: The laser mighter saw is very easy to use and cut correctly the first time. Because the saw comes with the laser you can count on the dreggre is correct. The saw is very durable. The saw is equiped with a vacume bag to collect the dust for in side work.
Summary: I bought this saw for the sole purpose of a permanant shop miter saw. I went into the quebec based big box hardwear store (reno) to compare the Bosch 12" glider to this hitachi 12" slider. The only reason I was looking at these two spacific saws, was the simple fact that i wanted a saw that could be mounted very close to the wall behind the saw.
