Details
Buy with confidence! Our Reconditioned items include all necessary parts and are guaranteed to function like new, backed by our 120 Day money back guarantee. Please note however that reconditioned units received from the manufacturer may or may not include accessories shown with this listing.
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
  • 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
  • Miter angles can be quickly adjusted using Hitachi's thumb actuated positive stops
  • 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
  • Large base provides better support and balance to prevent material from warping
  • Elastomer compound coats the horizontal handle, reducing vibration, while adding comfort and preventing slippage
  • Externally accessible carbon brushes allow for quick and easy maintenance to prolong tool life

Fences not square
Shortly after receiving, I was making several cuts on some short 2x4 pieces and they weren't winding up square. Turns out both back fence guides are curved/warped. One is really bad - 1/16" off from end-to-end. I'm going to try and heat up with torch and bend straight but metal is very cheap so it'll be hairy and I'll be lucky if it works.
Also, the laser is very dim - cannot see it at all in daylight adnd barely in dimer light.

Good saw for the price.
Saw arrived on day it was scheduled, assembly was straight forward. The angle gauge was off by a degree which caused a problem with the predetermined stops. Overall the saw has been doing a good job.

Like new! Very handy.
Got this 12" miter saw for a new fence install. Works great, just like new out of the box. All the supplied pieces were included and were brand new. Just a couple scratches, probably from shipping. This saw works effortlessly cutting through wood like butter. Makes precise cuts fast so you can get your projects done quickly. Nice investment.

Best saw for the money
This is my 2nd hitachi mitre saw. I own the old flagship C10FSH for the finest of work, and got this one as a job-site general purpose saw. First off, the price is amazing. Absolutely worth it. Performance is very good all around. My only gripes are, the cheesy plastic splitter behind the blade, and the seemingly flimsy locking knobs/levers for the bevel adjustment. I know this isn't the $600 saw that my C10FSH is, so I expected some budget measures. Again, the price is the big leader for this saw. It is worth every cent. The operation is quiet, and action is great. The laser is off..but I suspect it is something that can be adjusted. It is set to the center of the blade, rather than the left or right. Half the table was sanded with an orbital, and the other half had machine marks from where it was ground down... so there may have been a mistake in the casting (hence, why it was a reconditioned saw). Still, I'm VERY pleased with this purchase. With a straight edge on the bed, it reads dead flat- and I'm happy about that.

Will this 12" miter saw cut 4x4, 4x6 ?
If not what good is it !
Dan ( pro ) on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should. I don't own this saw (yet), but the manual says that on a straight 90-degree cut it can handle 2-3/4" x 8" OR 3-1/2" x 7-1/2". In other words its maximum capacity is a 4x8. 4x4 and 4x6 should be no problem. I've never heard of a sliding 12" saw that couldn't handle those.
Can anyone confirm what accessories a reconditioned saw does or does not come with as compared to the new version?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2017
does it come with a blade?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It comes with a blade. You will want to buy a blade with more teeth for finer cuts on trim work or such. Great saw. Bought a reconditioned one and have used it for almost a year remodeling my basement. Works flawless.
Sliding ?
Prasad K on Apr 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Model C12FDH is not a sliding saw.
