Chinese.
Wish I'd held onto my Japanese made 8 1/2 saws, the quality was much better.
But this one has performed well so far, works great for interior trim. I would not use this saw on a framing job, it wouldn't last the week.

The perfect jobsite miter saw
A couple of my crew have the little Hitachi sliding compound miter saw and while I have a 12" double compound slider and a 10" chop saw, I have been looking for an excuse to add this versatile saw to my crib since it can handle nearly everything except wooden gutters that one encounters in most interior and exterior trim jobs. The top carrying handle makes it easy to carry from the van to the site. The dust collection works very well. My only question is why I waited so long to buy it.

GREAT MITER SAW, EASY TO CARRY AND SET UP.
I AM A PRO AND HAVE OWENED OR USED MOST SAWS ON THE MARKET. AT 61 YEARS OLD, I LOVE THE SAW BECAUSE OF THE WEIGHT OF IT AND EASY TRANSPORT. USED MINE FOR TWO YEARS AND HAVE NO PROBLEMS. A COMPOUND BEVEL WOULD BE THE ONLY IMPROVEMENT I WOULD LIKE. BUT THAT WOULD ADD WEIGHT!!!! GREAT SAW.

Pros
Easy To Use
Some pros, but a few cons!
This is a great light weight miter saw and it cuts very accurate out of the box, great for trim and moulding. So far, so good. The cons: Only has two holes for attaching to a quick release mount for a portable miter saw table. If i had known that there were only two mounting holes I would not have purchased this model saw. Now i have to fabricate some kind of attachment for the back of the saw mount. I suggest that CPO provide more pictures of the indiviual tools.

The saw is okay but it is misrepresented and did not come with the laser guide but was still charged for laser.

BEST ANSWER: The Hitachi C8FSE is a single bevel miter saw

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 120 days.
