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: 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 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.
