Powerful Motor Provides Smooth, Accurate Cuts
The C10FSB Sliding Dual Compound Miter Saw features a powerful 12-amp motor that generates a no-load speed of up to 3,800 RPM for easily making crosscuts and miters in even the toughest workpieces. The electronic speed control ensures consistent RPM throughout the cut, so you get smooth, precise, controlled cuts each and every time.

Additionally, the C10FSB utilizes a Poly-V-Belt transmission rather than a traditional gear transmission. This soft start technology allows the saw to operate smoothly and quietly and reduces recoils during startup.

Compound Feature for Precise Miters and Bevels
Hitachi designed the C10FSB for versatile, easy use. The thumb-actuated positive miter stops allow for simple miter adjustments at the most common angles: 15.0, 22.5, 31.6, and 45.0 degrees to the right or left. The tool also features a 57-degree miter angle to the right and a 45-degree miter angle to the left for maximum flexibility. Additionally, a white-on-black miter scale provides superior visibility, allowing you to easily adjust the angle of the cutting blade for creating miters in crown molding and other trim pieces.

And with a bevel range of 45 degrees to the left and right, you can quickly and easily flip the saw blade while leaving your material in place. To save you even more time, bevel stops to the right and left are conveniently located at zero and 45 degrees.

The 10-inch TCT saw blade (included) makes easy work of trim and other woodwork, and the linear ball-bearing slide system and adjustable pivot fence allow for accurate cutting of large workpieces over 12 inches deep.

Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
The C10FSB contains plenty of features to help you make the perfect cut the first time. To start, a splinter guard behind the fence increases safety and reduces tear-out for clean, finished cuts. For further refinement, a large table provides a stable guide and sturdy support, a built-in clamping system holds your workpiece in place, and an electric brake feature quickly halts the blade to prevent unintended cuts.

The C10FSB also includes a dust collector that minimizes accumulation of dust and particles in your both your workspace and the saw's interior components, keeping your jobsite clean and prolonging the life of the tool. An added bonus, easily accessible carbon brushes will help your saw perform for the long term.

Durably built, this tool is backed with an industry-leading five-year warranty. It is compatible with Hitachi's UU610 Universal Work Station.

HASH(0xa11def24) out of 5 stars THE BEST SLIDER Sept. 2 2003

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.

HASH(0xa37e4348) out of 5 stars Solid, Recommended Dec 6 2005
By Robert Traub - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa1816f60) out of 5 stars Great saw, mediocre packaging Jan. 30 2005

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.

HASH(0xa11e1360) out of 5 stars Best saw on the market Sept. 29 2005
By Tom Silva wanna-be - Published on
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!

Product was delivered FED Ex with no damage - good choice Amazon, given hitachi's so-so packaging. Ships with 40 tooth blade which is of very limited use. I'm a professional woodworker and bought this tool to "upgrade" from my little old C8FB2, the first slide miter saw. No slide miter can replace a radial arm or table saw for accuracy, but I was hoping to get a little closer than I could get with the 8 inch saw. At first, I was impressed. Most adjustables were right on out of the box. Slide was tight and smooth with acceptable deflection. Power was marginal but OK with a top quality blade that you'd have to purchase extra. Detents are positive and tight, better than the earlier saws. Cuts in 8/4 sapele bogged down with a 12 amp motor but a light trim pass cleaned them up nicely. But here's the rub: any sliding saw carraige has to be aligned perfectly with the blade axis, or the heel or toe of the blade will drag through the cut. The blade will crab it's way along the cut line and you'll never get a clean cut. All cuts will be compromised to some extent. It will show up mostly in cuts through wide boards, but also in slightly out of plane mitres and crosscuts. You can check this on a piece of wide stock by pushing the blade carraige all the way against the stop on the fence side and carefully plunging the blade into the stock to leave a full kerf, then raising the blade, sliding out to the outside edge of the piece and making a sliding cut in to your first cut. The cuts should line up exactly.. If they don't, it may be acceptable in light stock trim work, but not fine woodworking or furniture work. This geometry should be adjustable and checked in the factory. It's not. My old C8 with a new 60 tooth Freud Diablo cuts better. And the C10FSB is made in Japan, not Malaysia or China. Some of my best tooling is from Japan, from mortising cutters to premium saw blades. Maybe it's just my saw, but I'm disappointed. Hitachi is not pursuing the professional market here. I would gladly pay another $200 for the same saw with a little more attention to the basic details, a couple more amps in the motor and a properly aligned blade arbor/slide mechanism. Note that on the big green plastic belt cover is the bold molded in text "COMPOUND MITRE SLIDE SAW." I don't need to be told what I bought. Just "HITACHI" on my old tool said enough. It doesn't mean as much to me now.
