I am in the market to purchase a 10" sliding compound miter saw. I saw a
Hitachi brand today at Lowe's but I don't know anything about the
reliability of that brand. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks
I know many who have owned one and they all have had good things to
say about theirs. I think Hitachi is a reliable brand. If the price is
right I don't think you'd be disappointed. (lets see what others say
I have experience with the 10" Makita model and like it very much with
two exceptions.... the angle scale's indicator is on the right side
up near the fence requiring you to stand to that side to get an
accurate eye of sight for odd angles (no detents). Also the safety
switch failed to function (on our saw) and the trigger is the whole
length of the handle, resulting in start ups while just trying to line
up the cut.
The 12" Dewalt has a very rugged feel. Dust bag is useless. I prefer
the Makita though maybe partly because of the blade that came with it.
