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

These saw replaces a C12FCH. It runs smoother and quit due to the belt drive. Fences are longer and it tilts in both Directions. It was spot on, on all angle adjustments out of the box.

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?

Do you sell Crown Moulding Support Assembly For This Saw Let me Know Thanks
beef on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We do not sell a crown support kit for that unit at this time.
I have the Model C12FDH. It won't bevel all the way to 45 degrees when tipping to the left. It stops at 40 degrees. When adjusting to the right it will go all the way to 50 degrees. Can't seem to figure out whats going on. I've had it about a year and its always been this way?? Help please
Harold M on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Adjust the stop so that it bevels further. There are positive stops, one on each side so you can quickly set the bevel to 45 degrees but if you need an angle greater than 45 degrees these need to be backed off. I personally would adjust both sides to stop at 45 degrees since that is the most commonly used angle but the stated max bevel is 48 degrees left/right.
I have 9'X30" by 2" rolling table with an inset that is 24"wide and 5" deep. Will this saw fit in this area?

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 120 days.
