Hitachi C12LDH 15 Amp 12" Dual Bevel Miter Saw with Laser & Digital Display
Hitachi has taken the top spot with their 12 inch dual compound miters saw. They took an incredibly good saw and added a digital readout to it, making it even better. The readout helps you to make sure you're getting your angles exactly right, by showing you what you've got set.
Like many of the other 12-inch saws, this saw has a 15 amp motor while the street price on this one is slightly lower than the DeWalt, while adding a few different features. Hitachi built a laser into this saw, so you can see exactly where the blade will cut. This laser is unique in that you can quickly and easily adjust it to the right or left of the blade, depending upon your need for that cut.
The fence is pivoting, allowing you to have it upright for tall moldings or lay it horizontal to give you a longer fence while allowing it to cut comparable sized molding as the DeWalt. Finally, there’s a micro-bevel adjustment knob for the bevel angle, allowing you to dial it in exactly. This has to be the most accurate compound miter saw on the market.
