I would stay away from Hitachi in general right now. They've recently been bought out and taken over by Metabo. I bought a Hitachi table saw a few months ago from Lowe's on sale (everything that still says Hitachi is or will be on sale) and it was fully 1/4" out of square with the miter slots over just the 10" diameter of the blade. No adjustment was even possible so that speaks to poor design. Called Hitachi (now Metabo) response I was given by customer service was along the lines of "Yeah, we've had a lot of stuff messed up. Just take it back" Seems like they may be having some quality control issues right now. Obviously I wasn't dealing with the same product, but I thought I'd give whoever is interested in this a heads up.

Great saw -- been using mine for years. I have no comparisons to other models because it's my first, but it has served me well for a variety of projects.

Agree with first poster. I've had this saw for 6 years, strictly home use. Throw a Diablo general purpose blade or a Dewalt finishing blade and this saw will reward you. I absolutely love my saw. Just like any other miter saw, always check your adjustments.... even when new. Can't be beat for this price.

Would love if it were sliding!

Has anyone used either of their stands?

Lowest ever on Amazon was $179 last year. Looks like it averaged about $219.

Only a 15% ($30) savings. I guess its better than a kick in the nuts, but not exactly anything to get excited over.

Thanks for the post though.
Not necessarily accurate. It was 299, then reduced to 199, now 169. Add a 10% on that and you can walk out the door for about 165 for a 12" dual bevel saw. Not sure if you'll find a better comparable deal. Too bad I already have a saw! Haha

The Dewalt has the more accurate XPS light instead of a laser, but for the price difference, I would have bought the Hitachi.

I love the Hitachi 10" non slider I have, but it just sits in the garage while I use the Dewalt. If I build a shop, I'll use the Hitachi as well, and their warranty of 5 years beats anything, Dewalt's is 3 years.

I added another 2 year warranty to the Hitachi at Lowe's, so it's good until 2022. I forget what that cost, but it was well worth it...

Oh, just saw this isn't a slider... I do believe their slider is in the $399 range, as opposed to Dewalt in the $499 range.

Metabo is one of the best tool companies... Your comparison is like saying a fiat will be even crappier being bought by rolls royce
