Product Reviews from Real People

“I had to buy this when I lent my other saw to a buddy and never received it back. I love this saw. The kicker in making this saw so attractive is the laser. It takes all the guess work out of – am I on the mark right or do I have the angle right. Just a nice saw to do projects with.” By Carl Murdock

“It is an amazing saw. I never used the original blade since I think you should always use at least a 60 tooth for finish work (I have a 90 tooth Hitachi blade). It cuts through pine with no visible tear out and a smooth finish (likely due to the blade as much as the saw). The laser is awesome and adjustable, though I do wish you could just use a knob instead of an Allen wrench to adjust it. But once it’s adjusted, you don’t need to worry about it unless you change your blade. The saw has enough power to cut through just about anything. I did have an issue with the flipover fence, as it was slightly out of alignment. I think it might be due to the way it is packaged (there isn’t the slightest hint of styrofoam to protect it). But I called Hitachi and they sent me a new one right away and it is perfect!” By S. Kim

“And yet I’ve used this one many times already. It is solid, easy to adjust, it cuts wood like it was butter, and of course the laser is exceptionally helpful.

I only wish I got it earlier.” By Chrobry

“I have owned this saw for 2 years It’s 8 years old and was given to me by my father in law who owned it from new and brought it back to the uk with him. I’m a finishing joiner and having an accurate chop saw is a necessity. This saw has needed no attention in 8 years and is still 100% accurate. There are not many saw that last this well. If your looking for saw for finishings, this is the saw you want. It doesn’t have the cutting capacity of a sliding saw but the accuracy can’t be beat as there is no flex at all left or right. Would highly recommend this saw to anyone DIYer or professional.” By Aldo


Micro-bevel adjustments, large pivoting fence, laser marker, and thumb actuated positive stops make this powerful saw a breeze to use. With a five year manufacturer’s warranty and high performing miter saw reviews, this Hitatchi 12-Inch dual bevel saw with laser is an attractive and affordable option.

Laser Marker

The Hitachi C12FDH features a Laser Marker System. The laser can be activated before the blade is in motion and allows for the users to get the exact alignment and blade placement needed for precise jobs. The laser can be adjusted to suit the different needs that different projects have. To use the laser marker system the users simply have to line the laser up with the mark that they have made on the piece of material they wish to cut and the saw blade will then make a cut along that line as guided by the laser.
