Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Dual bevel, soft start, belt drive, silky turn table, anti tear out device, portable.

Cons:blade, dust bag

The Bottom Line: This saw is very well built and thought out in its features.I like the dual bevel, dual rail system, smooth silky operation, belt drive and portable. Highly recommend it


owned this saw for a couple of months, it seems that the more I use it the more I really appreciate it. I also own a DeWalt DW708,I purchased the Hitachi for the fine trim and delicate cuts. This saw excels in repeated cuts were accuracy is key.Minor adjustments to the stop screws was the only need on set up. This saw has a neat feature that helps in reducing tear out on all cuts and is also used to line up your cut mark. This device is located in the line of cut on the bevel head so it will always be there on all angles of cuts to reduce chipping or tear out.
I shopped other compound slide saws but choices are limited to ones that bevel both ways. After my decision on the Hitachi C10FS I did have second thoughts when I got it home. But after putting in more time with the Hitachi I knew I had made the right decision. This is a high quality machine that also seems to be well engineered. The more I use this saw the more I am impressed with it. Overall it has a very silky feel right from the start up to the end of the cut. This Hitachi is actually taller than my DW708 but is compact in the base and overall weight making it very portable where the DW708 is not.I favor the belt driven motor/blade set up. The belt driven system on this saw is most likely why it runs so smooth. The dust bag does not collect much of the dust but then what saw really does? The supplied blade is not the greatest for fine cutting so be prepared to replace it. Don't really care for the plastic gage markers. For the most part they do the job and you are rarely going to come in contact with them during normal use of the saw so it is no big deal. I really like the plastic fence guides that come with the saw, you can set them up to slide back and forth without tools or thumb screws. You can pretty much make your own for taller stock/molding.
I love power tools and I really use them for the job. I also put in a lot of research before I purchase a tool and I am proud to have this Hitachi C10fs in my collection.
