Table saw reviews on Hitachi C10FL


Does anybody own one of these and do you like it? It's a 10" Hitachi 3 HP 15amp table saw and it looks impressive at the store for $499 but do any users out there recommend one?
Thanks and let me know if you like or dislike it? Is there a better model in the same price range?

First, don't believe that you will ever see it transfer 3 hp on a 15 a circuit.
I've its earlier sibling, have worked it hard for 5 years, and it still runs like new. Only notable item is the noise-level of the reduction-gears. Get used to ear-muffs.
The current version, AFAIK, has a much improved fence.
One other portable ts I'd consider is the Makita, because if its max depth of cut.

Not sure about their table saw cause I own a Jet Cabinet saw but I do have the 12" miter saw which I like very much. I generally use it in the field for large Crown Molding and molding in general. Good quality product in my view.

I have the Bosch 4000 and like it. Wouldn't have any other semi portable saw.

The C10FL is not really a portable saw. It has a very large closed cabinet. Maybe you consider it portable because of the casters but it's definitely not one to take on a job site if that's what you mean.

Have this saw and find it a dream to operate and adjust. Very powerful and quiet. Most cuts I can glue with out using the joiner to smooth. The saw is listed on Hitachi's web site www.hitachipowertools.com Text in the saw model number C10FL in the search window and the support page is linked.
Hope this helps you!
