The Hitachi C8FSE 8-1/2-Inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw is one of Hitachi's newest 8-1/2 inch sliding compound miter saws. The Hitachi C8FSE is powered by a 9.5 amp motor with a no-load speed of 5,500 RPM's yet only weighs 31 pounds for easy portability. The Hitachi C8FSE uses a linear ball bearing slide system for superior accuracy while positive stops on the miter and bevel scales make easy-to-read measurements and quick settings. The Hitachi C8FSE features a vertical handle with soft, vibration reducing elastomer grip and electronic speed control for consistant RPM while cutting. The Hitachi C8FSE is equipped with an adjustable pivoting fence for improved stability while cutting and a splinter guard that reduces tear out and increases user safety. Externally replaceable carbon brushes greatly prolong the life of the Hitachi C8FSE.

turns out at least on the saw i got, the one piece casting was warped/mismanufactured! the blade was binding against the plastic piece which sits along the edge of the cut line on the base of the saw. i got my square out and discovered that the entire casting is warped to such an extent that the cut line is out of square 3/16" over the 11" of slide travel. impossible to get a square cut, and all the bevel angles would be wrong by a few degrees. wow! i might expect this sort of thing from ryobi, or mastercraft, but hitachi?? i assume that more of the same saws will have this problem, as it looks like a casting defect. just be warned, and i for one will not purchase any more hitachi products made in china!

The arbor on the first saw was bent, making blade visibly wobble. I returned it for replacement.
The arbor was good on the second, but the entire head was cocked out of parallel alignment with the slides. With the factory blade installed, the maple veneer would slightly tear out on the left as the blade exited the ply. With the Forrest blade there was no tear out, but after completing the cut my co-worker and I could both see a belly that let in daylight between the cut and a straight-edge.
I had the same problem with the last replacement.
