Hitachi C12RSH2 15-Amp Sliding Compound Miter Saw
Hitachi C12RSH2 is a recently released miter saw with a 15-amp 1520 watt power motor (120V) at 3800rpm rotating speed, a 12 inch dual bevel sliding compound and tool-less laser marker system that is simple to adjust for cutting very accurately even if you’re not experienced. Saw head slides along the fixed rails thanks to this fixed rail / compact slide system, that needs zero rear clearance unlike other sliding miter saws, which also helps reduce footprint by as much as a foot saving you some space and the powerful 15-amp motor will help you perform hard cutting tasks easily and conveniently. Just think about the 12 inch diameter saw blade on a standard compound miter saw, you will only be able to cut through stuff a bit more than 4 inches in one go then you will need to flip the board to complete the cutting but it is not so much the case with this sliding head unit with the entire saw-head able to move forward. You’re given quite a bit of flexibility with miter angle up to 45 degrees to the left and up to 57 degrees to the right and with up to 45 degree bevel angle (from zero) to both left and right with the micro knob you may flip the saw blade quickly while leaving the stuff you’re cutting in its place.
The fence height can be raised up to 5.125 inches with the big sliding fence to be able to cut as much as 7.5 inch crown molding vertically (taller sliding fences are good for cutting bigger materials). The miter saw is easier to control with the vertical handle that is more comfortable to hold with its soft elastomer grip that decreases vibrations. When you need to make opposing cuts you will simply tilt the head without moving your board rather than flipping it, which you can also do by the way if you wish. Thanks to the slider on this compound miter saw you do not need to get additional carpentry tools when you’re cutting large boards up to a 4-3/16-inch x 12-1/4-inch size. It weighs 59 pounds and measures 25 x 35 x 28 inches and takes up less space than other sliding miter saws. This is a user friendly and versatile miter saw with slider and laser marker designed for the pro woodworking artisans and carpenters- great productivity and output and how practical it is. The moving parts can be a little rigid when you first take the unit out of the box and things will get smoother soon. You will get the 12 inch 60T TCT Saw Blade, 17mm Box Wrench, Vice Assembly, Holder and Dust Bag in the box. It is offered with a 5 year warranty by Hitachi, with also 30-day satisfaction guaranteed.
