Top of the line machine
If you are a finish carpenter or builder this miter saw gives you perfect cuts and is very powerful. I make rustic style furniture and also do carpentry work. I purchased this saw over two months ago and all cuts are still on the money.
I use this saw mostly on 5/4 oak and ash and hickory log saplings and it cuts right through without problems.

excellent saw
This is one great saw with some awesome features without being too bulky. Compared it with other big name saws an this one fit the bill. Smooth to operate, holds it square and minimal saw dust generated. Has laser line and extended crown molding fence, among the best in the field.

Great value for the average to advanced woodworker
I'm a woodworking hobbyist and this saw replaces a 20-year old Delta miter saw. Thie Hitachi offers dual compound miter capability with 12-in plus capacity for standard 90 degree cuts. The set up instructions where easy to follow and cursory checks of table-to-blade and blade-to-fence angles were spot on. Quality of cut with the blade shipped on the saw is very good. I do however, plan to upgrade to a Forrest 80-tooth Chopmaster next year.

I received the saw the next day after placing my order with CPO. It arrived with some damage to the outer box, but the saw was protected by the inner packing materials and suffered no damage.

The dust collection bag fills quickly and I estimate it catches about 50% of the dust generated. I have a hood behind the tool connected to my central dust collection system which collects about 25% of the dust, less if I'm making 45-degree miter cuts. The rest of the dust winds up on the miter stand, the saw or on the floor. I plan to reconfigure my dust collection piping to connect a hose directly to the saw's dust port and eliminate the dust bag. Hopefully, this will increase the efficiency and reduce the clean-up chore.

My first time for Hitachi and Tyler Tools
After reading the reviews I was a little concerned when the box arrived, with my saw, a lot beat-up. It had apparently received some very rough treatment. After removing it and sitting it on a support I was pleasantly surprised. I did absolutely nothing to it except take it from the box to the support stand. I powered it up and made some trial cuts. It was perfect! Everything worked and the cut was great. This saw is beautiful! The cardboard in the shipping box was very, very heavy. No doubt why there was no damage. The saw arrived very quickly so my kudos to Tyler. The entire transaction was very pleasing and very positive. I would recommend Hitachi and Tyler Tool to anyone.

Saw is great and the Customer service is also great.
I used this product in segmented woodturning which requires accurate angles and good alignment and no kick in the blade. So far it appears to be just that. It is easy to learn how to use and one is confident that the slider is accurate and consistent.
The first saw came and it was busted. Customer service sent me a replacement unit in much better packing in a very short time. I am sold on this product and will lean in any future purchase possibility with CPO.
Great job!

Hitachi 12 " miter saw
I'm on my 3rd saw, the last two came in with damage. I'm not able to say much on the saw performance. The group at Tyler CPO have been awesome, They handle the freight damage very quick and get another one out. I think they do need to look at the shipping department and make some changes. I can see the boxes were opened. The problem is the packing inside does not seem to be complete. The box is good but the saw moves around inside. Both previous saws had the slide arm bent. If the box is dropped the saw just basically hits whatever with a thin piece of cardboard between. My thoughts request the box be over packed & protected. These guys take care of anything but there is the time waiting for the next saw to show. Remember request extra packaging.

Excellent addition to my shop
I'm just a DIY-er at this time, but looking toward retirement and having time to complete some actual projects, including building an actual building to house my shop. I plan to put this saw through its paces then!!

Does this miter saw have a depth stop?
inquirious on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If by 'depth stop' you mean the vertical depth of the cut, then not to my
knowledge. If by 'depth stop' you mean a slide stop, then you could
possibly use an adjustable stop on the slide mechanism. I hope this helps!
I have lost power and thought it was the switch. Ordered a new switch and still did not work. When put the old switch back on and reassembled it started working. Two months later stopped again. Put a new switch on and still does not work.
A week later it started working again for two weeks and now is down again. Any comments?
John on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like a short somewhere. Might have an electrician check it out.

Ok so lets be clear , there are no positive detents when compounding the saw?? No 15,21.5,33.9,45right? Its just like my older dewalt with no positive detents while compound cutting? ?
Walter on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This saw does have the traditional detents as mentioned above.
What's the depth of the total saw in a full forward position from rear to front of handle. Looking to have this in a shop and want to know how much room it takes to operate.
Brownie on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This saw has two positions for the sliding portion. You can change it so the sliding portion extends backward like most sliding saws or you can change it so the sliding portion extends toward the user without changing the cut of the saw. pretty ingenious if you ask me
ARE THERE ANY STANDS AND FENCE EXTENDERS FOR THE 12" SLIDING MITRE SAW
Mr. Bob on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a delta rolling stand for this saw that works perfectly with extensions. I know the Ridgid stand also works fine
Does this saw have an electric brake on the motor?
Thanks!
frontier on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this model does have a blade brake.
Does this saw have a blade brake clutch?
Pal on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this model does have a blade brake.
I think the switch in the handle is bad as the lazer works but the switch will not start the saw. This happened about four months ago and in a couple days it started working again. How do I find a new switch?
John, weekend carpenter on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Please contact the manufacturer direct at 1-800-706-7337 for assistance with parts.
are there any stands for this saw? also any type of extensions available for this saw?
Gus on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are no stands or extensions for this saw.
Were exactly are the carbon brushes? How many of them? What do I look for as far as wear? Is there a location on the saw for storage of blade wrench?
L. C. on Jan 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The brushes transfer the electricity from outside the motor to the spinning winding in the center of the motor. They undergo quite a lot of friction, and after a while wear out. Carbon is used as it is a reasonable conductor, and is soft enough to wear down instead of wearing down the "comutator" - the ring the brushes press against. Brushes are designed to be replaceable in large motors because of this.
The saw takes a pair of them to operate.
No, the wrench is in a black bag.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
