Hitachi C8FSHE 8-1/2″ Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Laser Marker Review

The new Hitachi C8FSHE 8-1/2” sliding compound miter saw was released to coincide with Hitachi’s 20th year in the business since making the first ever sliding compound miter saw back in 1988. The sliding compound miter saw bridges the gap between much larger radial arm saws and fixed blade miter saws. With the ability to slide the blade assembly, large cuts are made easy. The innovation of Hitachi has not slowed down either. With these new series of saws, more power has been added along with more refinement in the overall machine to help make carpenters’ jobs easier by helping them work smarter.

Hitachi C7SB2 Circular Saw cutting

Hitachi C7SB2 Circular Saw Review

The Hitachi C7SB2 7-1/4 inch 15 amp circular saw is a workhorse product which can be found for a very reasonable price if you look hard enough. Its clean lines, comfortable feel, and powerful motor make it a decent saw for cutting, but clumsy depth and bevel adjustments give it at least some areas of improvement. This tool will do well in any handyman’s kit and some professionals may even find its lightweight styling is worth a second look.
