I love this saw. Never owned one before but needed to do some trim cuts and this looked like a great value after shopping around. Has worked perfectly so far. Lots of power, and easy to use. Easy to figure out set up, and seems relatively safe as far as any saw blade can be concerned. Hitachi always seems to make a great product, while not always being the least expensive, the value seems to be there.
I bought this saw as a replacement for the larger 12" slide from Hitachi which I don't miss at all. I do a lot of custom cabinetry and trim. This saw is perfect for my work. Some guys like the larger saw to stand up taller crown for a cut, but anyone who has actually been properly trained knows that the quality is more consistent when angle settings are understood and stock is cut face down. Too many contractors these days fail to remember that someone once taught them as laborers/apprentices, and knowledge isn't being passed down anymore. Anyway, 30lbs, small footprint, easy to reach setting adjustments, and accurate out of the box...what else do you need. I should have bought this instead of the 12", but 10 years ago it was about the latest and greatest. In this case, for custom carpentry, the greatest is still the original...
Excellent for laminate cuts, very powerful for it's size, easy to carry in/out the truck
THE LAST ONE I HAD, I BOUGHT IN 1995. THE REASON I BOUGHT THIS ONE, IS BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE WAS STOLEN. THIS SAW SEEMS TO LAST FOREVER. PLUS, IT IS PORTABLE, LIGHT WEIGHT, AND SETS UP IN LESS THAN TWO MINUETS.
