Hitachi C10FSB 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw Review
Hitachi C10FSB Review: With the incredible number of miter saws available in the market, it may become confusing which one to choose. The key things to keep in mind is to choose a saw that allows you to cut smooth, clean and accurately measured pieces in a way that is both easy and safe.The Hitachi C10FSB 10-Inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw meets these criteria and more.
One thing that makes the Hitachi C10FSB Compound Miter Saw more user-friendly than other compound miter saws is its lightweight build. Weighing only 43 pounds, this saw is considerably lighter than other saws on the market, and thus lets users pick it up and maneuver the unit with more ease and comfort.
The soft start of the saw reduces noise as well as recoil. It has been designed with positive stops in both the left and right direction at the most common of angles, namely 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6 and 45 degrees. Tear out and chipping is prevented by the device’s built-in chip deflector. This allows even smoother and cleaner cuts to be made.
The pivoting fence of the unit extends the overall work area, so that users and given more space to move around in and work. The Hitachi C10FSB 12 Amp 10-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw comes with a 12amp motor (with guaranteed no-load speed), a dust bag, a TCT saw blade and a box wrench. The overall unit comes with a five year warranty.

Customer Reviews…this is the best product on the market…
Steve, Amazon Customer Review
“I am a home builder and use this say every day. I have used many other brands and I can say w/o question this is the best product on the market. I frame and finish with this same saw and is a work horse.It will cut 2×4’s on edge [ I usually cut 3 at a time as it’s a good hand full and easy to manage] so cutting studs length is very fast.
I have had this same saw w/o the laser for several years and have never touched it repair wise,not even a trigger.It is in and out of my truck every day, rides in a tool box,it is compact and light compared to any other model on the market. When the day comes to buy a new compound miter saw ,this is the only one I would consider. Good luck.”
…the Hitachi 8 1/4 saw is also the best…
G Olsen, Amazon Customer Review
“Have used about a dozen CMS, SCMS saws and this is my favorite of all. Keep it simple stupid, and that is what Hitachi has done with this one. The guard actually works on this saw no pinning needed. The open table design is the only way to go for the trim carpenter. The Hitachi 8 1/4 saw is also the best, it however doesn’t dual bevel.”
I would recommend it to anyone

The Hitachi C10FSB Sliding Compound Miter Saw is a practical buy for users looking for a light, easy-to-use and powerful compound miter saw.
For most users the best feature is the saws soft start. The soft start ensures that the saw doesn’t jerk as you pull the trigger. The slide is smooth and the cuts are good.
