THE BEST SLIDER Sept. 2 2003
By J. Schwitters - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is an improved model of an already great tool! It was always the smoothest running and cutting saw before! Now it has easier to read markings on both bevel and table angle settings. Possitive angle notches in the table. Dual bevel and the belt drive is sooooo nice! The free blade is one of the best out there for cabinet or trim work. Buy it and you'll be hooked!We have used these Hitachi sliders since 1989 and we can't find anything close to it's quality and performance.

Solid, Recommended Dec 6 2005
By Robert Traub - Published on Amazon.com
I am a medium-level do-it-yourselfer, taking on more and more projects at a 200+ year old house that always needs attention. After replacing windows recently, I needed a saw to cut and complete the casing portion of the job. Rather than continue to beg and borrow from my neighbors, I opted to increase my tool collection. I pored over reviews here and elsewhere and finally decided to take the leap-- to a Bosch sliding compound saw here on Amazon. However, when I saw the hefty shipping/handling charges, and with a price increase moments before I clicked "Buy," I rethought the purchase and opted for the Hitachi from another online vendor with a much more reasonable shipping charge.

The saw came quickly and was in fine shape after travelling halfway across the country. I can see with less-than gentle handling the saw could punch a hole in the packaging, but mine survived the trip with no such effect. The saw is relatively compact, not too heavy, and the miters were right on right out of the box. The slide is smooth and the cuts are good. While some have raved about the OEM blade that ships with the saw, I am not 100% thrilled- some cuts have been so-so, making small chips in the pine I was cutting. I also cut some oak base molding, and the cuts were again good, but not perfect. At this point, I want to attribute that to my own learning curve, rather than to the saw or the blade. I want to swap the original blade with a finishing blade I have, to see if there is improvement in the smoothness of the cuts.

One gripe, and the reason for the 4 star rating, is with the safety button and handle. I do not have huge hands, and I find it somewhat awkward to depress the safety button and then grab the horizontal D-handle comfortably with the same hand to start the saw. Luckily for me, I am right-handed, as the handle controls are designed that way. Left handers had better be ambidextrous, or especially nimble with their pinky to be able to depress the safety button. Again, it could simply be getting accustomed to the saw. I did not experience this problem when using my friend's DeWalt sliding saw, however.

I purchased a Stablemate Plus 100 saw stand (built like a truck) from Amazon, and because the mounting holes on the Hitachi are in a triangular pattern, I had to mount the saw on plywood first in order to then mount it on the saw stand. Not a big deal, but worth noting.

Great saw, mediocre packaging Jan. 30 2005
By John G. Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am restoring my old home, and also spend quite a bit of time helping like-minded family & friends do the same. I have just received my Hitachi C10FSB and overall am very pleased with the purchase. Except for zero degree bevel needing an easy to-do adjustment, all other angles were spot on as delivered. The saw has a great blade, and overall fit and finish is excellent.

I was not impressed with was Hitachi's packaging. Upon reciept I could see about 1" of the back of the slider protruding from a small hole in side of the box. Upon opening I found the saw had shifted from its cardboard cutout restraints, allowing the slider to poke out of the box. The bevel was not locked or restrained and was free to flip-flop during shipping. Luckily everything checks out okay.

I cannot comment on how competitors package their saws, but as noted in other reviews it is clear that Hitachi does not package their saws for individual home delivery. This is the only thing keeping the C10FSB from getting 5 stars.

Best saw on the market Sept. 29 2005
By Tom Silva wanna-be - Published on Amazon.com
I've used several mitre boxes on the market and none are as detailed as the Hitachi slide. It's the only one I know with a dust shield to keep dust off the bevel guage. To me, the best feature is the soft start. My friend that I work with trimming out houses, has just purchased his third one and will not touch another one because of it's work horse features. This influenced me, then using it for a week sealed my decision. The slide motion is also so very soft, especially when you put a liquid silicone on the shaft, it glides with no effort! I'd recommend it to any serious woodworker needing a quality, dependable tool!

Great Saw Aug. 11 2005
By Robert Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
I had the little brother before this and thought the best of it with the exception that it could not cut through 4x4 in one cut. This one does that with ease with the added benefit of compounding both ways. I have used several others only to miss mine. Things that could be better in this one and all are lighter weight and quieter. I did not get the laser and probably should have. Perhaps due to the larger blade and the larger throw of the pivot into the wood it's not as easy as the smaller saw to line up the cut on you mark at a steep bevel.
