Hitachi C8FSE 9.5-Amp 8-1/2-Inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw
From the Manufacturer
The Hitachi C8FSE 9.5-Amp 8-1/2-Inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw gliding slide system allows for easy handling of large framing pieces, and its compound cutting capability provides versatility on the job. The powerful 9.5-amp motor generates a no-load speed of up to 5,500-RPM for making crosscuts and miters with ease. The electronic speed control ensures consistent RPM throughout the cut, so you get smooth, precise, controlled cuts each and every time. The thumb-actuated positive miter stops allow for simple miter adjustments at the most common angles: 15, 22.5, 31.6, and 45-degrees to the right or left. With a bevel range of 48-degrees to the left and 5-degrees to the right, the Hitachi C8FSE provides gorgeous bevels on the first try. The linear ball-bearing slide system and pivoting fence allow for accurate cuts up to 2-9/16-inches high and 12-inches deep. The splinter guard behind the fence reduces tear-out for clean, finished cuts. A comfortable vertical handle with a vibration-reducing elastomer grip keeps you in control at all times, a large table provides a stable guide and sturdy support, and a built-in clamping system holds your work piece in place. A dust collector minimizes the accumulation of dust and particles and the easily accessible carbon brushes will help your saw perform for the long term. Weighing just 31-pounds with a 31-3/32-inch length, 21-27/32-inch width and 19-3/32-inch height makes this the lightest and most portable 8-1/2-inch slide compound miter saw on the market. This tool is compatible with the UU610 and UU610CZ universal workstations (sold separately) and includes a 8-1/2-inch 24-tooth TCT saw blade, dust bag, vice assembly, box wrench, and sub fence. The Hitachi C8FSE 9.5-Amp 8-1/2-Inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw comes with a 5-year warranty. Hitachi Power Tools (Hitachi Koki USA, Ltd.) provides professional-grade power tools and pioneered innovative technologies that have improved the quality of craftsmanship worldwide.

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.
