Product Overview

Details

The C12FDH 12 in. dual compound miter saw with dual bevel features Hitachi's exclusive laser guide system for cutting accuracy. The saw head bevels to the right or left allowing the material to stay securely in place for ultimate cutting efficiency. It cuts various types of wood, crown molding, plywood, decorative panels, soft fiberboard, hardboard and aluminum sashes. After major bevel angle is secured, the micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial-in to a precise angle without the weight of the saw head compromising the accuracy. Exclusive laser guide system accurately indicates where the blade will cut on the material and can be easily adjusted to the right or left of the cut mark depending upon the user's preference. A tall, pivoting aluminum fence that stands at a height of 5-1/8 in. allows crown molding to be cut vertically for convenience. A powerful 15 Amp motor with 1,950 Watts of output power smoothly powers through hardwoods with ease.
Features:
  • Powerful 15 Amp motor with 1,950 Watts of output power smoothly powers through hardwoods with ease
  • Miter scale ranges up to 52 degrees, both to the right and left, for a broader range of cuts
  • Bevel scale ranges up to 48 degrees to the right and left allowing the material to stay in place while the saw head flips to make opposing cuts
  • Miter angles can be quickly adjusted using Hitachi's thumb actuated positive stops
  • After major bevel angle is secured, micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial-in to a precise angle without the weight of the saw head compromising the accuracy
  • Laser guide system accurately indicates where the blade will cut on the material, and can be easily adjusted to the right or left of the cut mark depending upon the users preference
  • Tall, pivoting aluminum fence that stands at a height of 5-1/8 in. allows crown molding to be cut vertically for convenience
  • Elastomer compound coats the horizontal handle, reducing vibration, while adding comfort and preventing slippage
  • Large base provides better support and balance to prevent material from warping
  • Externally accessible carbon brushes allow for quick and easy maintenance to prolong tool life

Great Miter Saw
Bought this saw C12FDH yesterday and did not realize until I used it how much better and faster it is than the old miter hand saw I have cranked on for years. I am remodeling my office and this saw is a priceless jewel. The joints fit much better than the hand sawed joints, wish I had bought it sooner, great price. Will use less putty now. Ed

Saw Fence Issues
Have had this saw now for a few years and after hundreds of cuts the aluminum fence starts to bend. The fence is heavy aluminum, but has started to bend inwards just from the constant contact of the lumber against the fence itself. Tried to slowly tap the distortion out of the fence to true it back inline and the fence cracked into 2 pieces. Now I will have to order the replacement fence assembly to get the saw back into operation, or try to rig some alternate version of the fence out of machined aluminum.

Love the saw itself and its been reliable and a joy to work with. Fence needs redesign to beef it up or make it out of some other material other than aluminum.

Amazing price Amazing service
I used this saw to build a complete kitchen full of cabinets and cut every piece of moldings with it. The saw checked out accurate right out of the box. When my brother started sharing shop space with me he cut into one of the tall fences, not once but twice, breaking part of the main case and rendering the saw inaccurate and unable to be realigned. CPO had the saw on sale for almost half price compared to the big box where I originally bought it, so I ordered it and it arrived quickly. There was a problem with the replacement and CPO sent out another complete saw immediately and asked me to get the first replacement back to them via a prepaid UPS label as soon as convenient.
The new saw is perfect and accurate and I am back in business!

The product works very well and is easy to figure out.
out of the box,it was easy to get started.I built a porth with a handicapped ramp. I WOULD Not make a cut without a miter saw. This saw ran without any problems.

Perfectly square right out of the box! Love the laser! Cuts are nice and smooth! Fence is sturdy! After much research and talking with a power tool repair shop, and a high end cabinet man I know, this saw is the answer. Great saw!! If you're looking for a saw this is it!!

This is the second miter saw that I have purchased. I bought one in 2006 to do a home remodel and I bought this one for my son-in-law to do the same. I cannot say enough good things about Hitachi products.

I purchased this to do crown molding. It was the best value in a dual compound 12 inch miter saw. I bought from Lowes for 250. It has performed flawlessly. I have also used this to cut 2 X 8 boards for my daughters props for high school dance. I could have used a slider for those pieces but sliders are more money and take up more storage for the few times I would need one. The cuts on these boards didn’t even phase the saw. I would recommend these product and brand again.

A rugged and stable saw that delivers precise and repeatable results. Well designed with the various added features actually being useful and functional.

Good features for the price
The saw does everything I needed in a mitre saw. The tilt feature is a lttle awkward to use. The lazer is not very bright and washes out in sunlight. The cut has to be in a shadow to see the lazer line.

This saw has worked flawlessly for me and produces very accurate miter cuts. It has plenty of power to cut through anything that I have had to use it for. Great saw for the money.

I purchased this saw and it works well but it will not bevel to the left the full 45 degrees. The saw frame bumps against the left fence, even after removing the parts to be removed for left bevels. I am cutting with a right miter of 52 Degrees and a left bevel of 45 degrees. Am I missing something?

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
