Hitachi C12LCH 15 Amp 12-Inch Compound Miter Saw Review
The Hitachi C12LCH Miter Saw with Laser is a powerful, 15amp miter saw that easily cuts through the most common of woodwork materials.
The laser cutting guide of this unit allows users to easily see exactly where the blade will cut through once the saw is started. This lets individuals easily make adjustments and changes in order to arrive at the exact pieces they want.
The LCD digital display is another great feature that not a lot of miter saws come with. This feature gives a user quick access to both the miter and the bevel readings in a manner that is more accurate and more convenient.
The Hitachi C12LCH 15 Amp 12-Inch Compound Miter Saw comes equipped with a handy dust bag which easily catches saw dust and other debris that fall off your materials while being sawed. This makes for a cleaner operation, lessening the time you have to use to sweep up sawdust after working.
The device weighs only 43 pounds, making it relatively more lightweight compared to other miter saws. The overall device is sturdy and reliable. This unit comes with a five year warranty.

“I read other reviews and was a little concerned about damaged parts during shipment and factory settings being off. I would say that Hitachi has resolved their packaging problem because even with UPS delivering the saw it arrived in one piece.
I think all I had to do was screw in a handle and the saw was ready to go. I tested the factory settings (stops) for zero and +-forty five degrees and blade tilt by cutting sample pieces and re-orienting them. The test pieces all checked out and the digital readouts all matched the factory stops. The laser is very sharp and was also set perfectly. Out of the gate I couldn’t be more pleased.”

“Excellent saw. The digital readout is convenient and very accurate to the 1/2 degree. The Hitachi laser is better than any other out there in that it can be used WITHOUT the blade spinning. This allows you to safely line up your work before pulling the trigger. The bevel and angle adjustments are smooth and accurate. The quality of the materials are unmatched. And of course the most important part, the saw is powerful and true.”
