Hitachi C10FCE2 Power Saw Review
As we gathered all the necessary information to submit a Hitachi C10FCE2 saw review, we recognized the power of this 10 inch unit, with its strong 15.0 amp motor that provides little lag. Producing 5000 RPMs, the table saw easily made precision cross cuts, even through tough materials. With its soft start mechanism, and quick break, it provided trouble-free smooth accurate operation.
As a side note, we utilize the same standards in our Hitachi C10FCE2 table saw a review as we do in all of our other competitive units. This saw met or exceeded our standards. Below, are some of the outstanding benefits and features of the unit, in its ability to produce precise, accurate cuts.
The Hitachi saw is built with pivoting action to provide solid stops in every common angle. The unit’s turn and locked handle provides accurate and quick locking to set every angle cut. Preset miter stops offer easy access to a carpenter’s common angles and can be conveniently activated with the thumb. Adjustments to the miter saw can be set from 0 to 52 degrees from either the left or right. This provides a wide range from zero degrees to 48 degrees (on the left). The saw’s horizontal soft grip significantly reduces the unit’s vibration while still providing optimal control.
Exact Measurements and Minimal Vibration
The Hitachi C10FCE2 is far superior to a lot of competitive models in its ability to provide more accurate cuts on larger pieces. This is because the large pivoting fence can be set to elevations four inches or less. The bevel adjustment can be set up to 45 degrees, and the extremely thin indicator makes for exact measurements. The convenient clamp provided with the device helps secure work firmly in the place.
The sturdy table top remains stable throughout operation, and the included stabilization bar will easily prevent the table saw from moving or tipping over. In fact, our evaluators notice zero vibration even with heavy duty 15.0 amp motor. This is possibly due to the anti-vibration handle, which is necessary with such a powerful kick every time the motor starts to turn.
Even though the saw head is designed to set only toward the left, work pieces can be adjusted in either direction to avoid any issue. We notice that the saw delivers incredible accuracy, making precise repeatable cuts to ensure optimal results. In fact, our team has determined that in its class, this unit is the best miter saw available with regard to providing precision cuts without a laser guide.
The 10-inch miter saw is designed to cut through a variety of materials including decorative panels, aluminum sash, plywood, softwood, hardboard, hardwood, pressure-treated lumber and fiber board. Weighing in at just 26.3 pounds, this powerful unit is easily transported from the workshop or garage, out to the job site.
The unit contains a dust collector out of the box. However, we recognized that the collector was not very efficient. It captured reasonable amounts of dust and most of it was kept off the saw during operation, which reduced the need for cleanup.
After a solid evaluation to gather information for submitting our Hitachi C10FCE2 table saw review, we highly recommend this unit. This is because of its incredibly powerful 15.0 amp motor, its ability to cut through a variety of materials, accurate cutting performance, and easy portability. The unit is offered at an affordable price, and outperforms many of its competitors in the same class. With minimal kick upon startup, and an anti-vibration handle, it is very easy to make accurate repeat cuts, to produce the best work product.
