Details

The C12FDH 12 in. dual compound miter saw with dual bevel features Hitachi's exclusive laser guide system for cutting accuracy. The saw head bevels to the right or left allowing the material to stay securely in place for ultimate cutting efficiency. It cuts various types of wood, crown molding, plywood, decorative panels, soft fiberboard, hardboard and aluminum sashes. After major bevel angle is secured, the micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial-in to a precise angle without the weight of the saw head compromising the accuracy. Exclusive laser guide system accurately indicates where the blade will cut on the material and can be easily adjusted to the right or left of the cut mark depending upon the user's preference. A tall, pivoting aluminum fence that stands at a height of 5-1/8 in. allows crown molding to be cut vertically for convenience. A powerful 15 Amp motor with 1,950 Watts of output power smoothly powers through hardwoods with ease.
Features:
  • Powerful 15 Amp motor with 1,950 Watts of output power smoothly powers through hardwoods with ease
  • Miter scale ranges up to 52 degrees, both to the right and left, for a broader range of cuts
  • Bevel scale ranges up to 48 degrees to the right and left allowing the material to stay in place while the saw head flips to make opposing cuts
  • Miter angles can be quickly adjusted using Hitachi's thumb actuated positive stops
  • After major bevel angle is secured, micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial-in to a precise angle without the weight of the saw head compromising the accuracy
  • Laser guide system accurately indicates where the blade will cut on the material, and can be easily adjusted to the right or left of the cut mark depending upon the users preference
  • Tall, pivoting aluminum fence that stands at a height of 5-1/8 in. allows crown molding to be cut vertically for convenience
  • Elastomer compound coats the horizontal handle, reducing vibration, while adding comfort and preventing slippage
  • Large base provides better support and balance to prevent material from warping
  • Externally accessible carbon brushes allow for quick and easy maintenance to prolong tool life

decent saw except for the fence

By Indiana Woodworker

from Greenfield IN

About Me Professional

Pros

  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Poor Design

Best Uses

    The Hitachi Saw arrived with a broken fence. I think this has less to do with shipping damage, although it isn't packaged for common carrier shipping, than a very poor fence design. The fence flips out of the way rather than sliding out of the way when tilting the head for miter cuts. The fence shape is so convoluted with so many thin spots in the shape that I can easily flex the fence with my hand. I would hate to see what would happen if the saw kicked during a cut while the upper fence was supporting the work piece. I made a couple test cuts (cuts that did not require the upper fence)to see if I liked the saw other than the flip fence. The dust collection is excellent, but the laser is not as described it is red rather than green and is very thin. Supposedly the laser is supposed to show the saw kerf but the laser would be much better suited to showing one of the edges of the blade. I made no effort to adjust the laser, so I can't say anything about that. I did like the rack and pinion tilt adjustment, but the knobs on the front and back of the saw are ridiculously long. This saw is as deep as my Bosch saw with a 14" crosscut, but only cuts 8".

    I bought this saw because I am looking to replace an old Delta 12" dual laser saw that I love but is well beyond its service life. I need a heavy duty precise saw for daily use with a good laser system and adequate dust collection. So far I haven't found one. Of all the new saws I have tried the Dewalt has been the nicest, but the dust collection is an afterthought at best and the laser system is largely useless do to inadequate keeper springs that hold the lasers aligned.

    Great Miter Saw

      Bought this saw C12FDH yesterday and did not realize until I used it how much better and faster it is than the old miter hand saw I have cranked on for years. I am remodeling my office and this saw is a priceless jewel. The joints fit much better than the hand sawed joints, wish I had bought it sooner, great price. Will use less putty now. Ed

      Saw Fence Issues

      By Zargon

      from Somerset, KY

      About Me Professional

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Easy To Use
      • Fast Cutting Speed
      • Powerful

      Cons

      • Poor Design

      Best Uses

        Have had this saw now for a few years and after hundreds of cuts the aluminum fence starts to bend. The fence is heavy aluminum, but has started to bend inwards just from the constant contact of the lumber against the fence itself. Tried to slowly tap the distortion out of the fence to true it back inline and the fence cracked into 2 pieces. Now I will have to order the replacement fence assembly to get the saw back into operation, or try to rig some alternate version of the fence out of machined aluminum.

        Love the saw itself and its been reliable and a joy to work with. Fence needs redesign to beef it up or make it out of some other material other than aluminum.
