The C10FR portable saw I bought had a defective switch which failed
after about 15 minutes use. Reported this to Hitachi and asked for
replacement switch. Recieved no reply. Hitachi does no stand behind this
product. Poor design in dust collection system for this saw allows dust
to accumulate in base which then blows into the face of user creating
potential for lung damage.
Hitachi's non-response to this problem contrasts strongly with other
companies. Delta in particular has a very good customer service policy
and in my case they have done more than I required to stand behind their
Uni Saw and bench lathe when I complained about defects. Therefore I
highly recommend Delta tools and strongly recommend you stay away from
