The Hitachi C10FCH2 Ten-Inch Miter Saw with Laser is a 26.5-pound power tool powered by a 15-Amp motor that is capable of delivering a no load speed of up to 5000 revolutions per minute. The 10-inch tungsten carbide tooth saw blade, controlled by a horizontal handle with a vibration-reducing elastomer grip, is capable of cutting work pieces of up to 2-5/16 inches high and 5-21/32 inches deep while the clamping system holds these pieces in place. The product includes a miter that possesses a miter angle range from left to right of 0 to 52 degrees, and the bevel that possesses a bevel angle range of 0 to 45 degrees to the left. The thumb-actuated positive miter stops provide adjustments between zero and 52 degrees. The fitted Laser Marker System highlights the cutting line. This package also includes an extended fence, a dust bag, a vise assembly, a box wrench, and a hex bar wrench.
The Hitachi C10FCH2 Ten-Inch Miter Saw with Laser was mostly praised by the reviewers for its easy handling. One even remarked that the interface was totally self-explanatory and that it did not even need its users to read a manual. This person, as well as all the other reviewers, liked the saw due to the fact that it could cut any kind of material smoothly and quickly with no extra effort. He expected this since the saw, the bevels, the laser and the miters were well-constructed. Another user remarked that the product is reasonably cost-friendly for its huge range of functions, and that the warranty was reasonable for the package. He added that the motor does not bog down unlike other mechanical saws.
However, one reviewer felt that the product fell short because it could not cut an eight-inch baseboard, since it does not have sufficient capacity. One user claimed that the mounting holes of his product were not parallel; thus, it was not able to fit miter saw stands like Denali or Dewalt ones without adding a piece of plywood.
Although the product had minor setbacks for some of the purchasers, numerous users praised the whole package of the Hitachi C10FCH2 Ten-Inch Miter Saw with Laser because of its durability, user-friendliness, fast starting, accurate cuts and powerful engine. A lot of reviewers commented that this product is a must-have for every starting handyman.
