Hitachi is known as one of the world’s leaders when it comes to researching and developing power tools. The brand has accomplished many firsts in the power tool trade, as they continued their tradition of engineering and innovating new ideas and features aside from its trademark quality. Now, answering the need for accuracy, precision, and multipurpose capabilities, the Hitachi C10FCE2 10-Inch compound miter saw was designed for making smooth, precise miters and cross cuts.
This miter saw can be used on different work pieces, may it be wood, plywood, softwood, hardwood, sashes, aluminum fiberboards, hardboards, and more. It comes with a flexible miter to adjust angles for making intricate cuts and an adjustable bevel angle that makes it a versatile tool for wood workers, framers, carpenters, and installers. The Hitachi C10FCE2 is also packed with easy to use, and much needed features for making exact, perfect cuts every time.
Powerful 15.0 AMP motor
Equipped with a 15 AMP motor, the C10FCE2 can generate enough power to turn its 10-inch, 24-tooth TCT blade at a no-load speed of 5,000 rotations per minute. That’s more than enough power for making miters and cross cuts faster and easier.
Adjustable cutting angles and sizes
The compound miter saw allows more freedom with its easy to adjust angles. Miter cuts can be done from 0 to 52 degrees to the right or left using the thumb activated miter stop. It also presents an adjustable bevel range of 0 to 42 degrees with bevel stops for easier use.
To accommodate larger work pieces, it also features a large pivoting fence that can be raised up to 4 inches. The adjustable fence height makes it possible to cut work pieces from 2.3 inches high and 5.6 inches deep.
Lightweight portable miter saw
Measuring 4 by 4 inches and weighing approximately 27 pounds, the Hitachi C10FCE2 Miter Saw is one of the lightest mechanical saws of its kind, and one of the most portable compound miter saws available on the market today.
Comfortable handle with vibration mask
The handle of the Hitachi C10FCE2 miter saw works two ways. One is to provide comfort and the other is to lessen the vibration from its powerful 15 AMP motor while in use for added safety and better precision.
This helps ensure that you won’t lose control while working with this powerful cutting machine. Additionally, a large table serves as a sturdy and stable support while the built-in clamping system holds the pieces firmly in place.
Dust collector for easy cleaning
Made with a dust collector, the Hitachi C10FCE2 will help you lessen the amount of dust produced from cutting work. This not only acts to keep the workstation clean but also helps make sure that the miter saw stays clean for easier maintenance and a longer lifespan. As a bonus, it also comes with easy to access carbon brushes that keep the machine in top performance for the long haul.
Designed with durability in mind, the Hitachi C10FCE2 10 inch Compound Miter Saw comes with an industry standard 5 year warranty. It is also compatible to use with the Hitachi UU610 Miter Saw Stand.
Conclusion on the Hitachi C10FCE2 miter saw
If you are looking for a basic entry level miter saw, that provides quality at a really affordable price then the C10FCE2 is hard to beat. Yes, it lacks all of the bells and whistles of some of its more elaborate bigger brothers, but it also lacks the price tag that they have too.
