Are you sure it's sliding? Link says it's 12-in 15-Amp Bevel Slide Laser Compound Mitre Saw.

Wow have things changed over the years. I bought my 10 inch Hitachi sliding saw for $750. That was in 2005. Shouldn't things get more expensive with inflation?

Correct me if I'm wrong but you probably have the original C12RSH which apparently was made in Japan. This one is a bit newer in design but from what I recall, they've removed some features and it's now made in China which likely allows them to hit a lower price point. Of course it's also on sale so that helps.

Ridgid isnt even close to hitachi imo. Next year hitachi will release their Hybrid corded/cordless 20v line of tools in North America which will put a spin on traditional corded/cordless tools. Hitachi is as good as milwaukee and makita imo. May surpass them once they get rolling in the next few years.

I would consider Hitachi high end. They are changing their name though so that's probably why the heavy clearance.

All the Hitachi branded stuff is pretty aggressively priced right now at Lowe's.

My father has the dual bevel rigid which has worked well for me. Just wondering if i could buy this and give him back his? Just woried about the 45 left. Would it not be better to go past 45? Also earlier someone mentioned that this was made in china, can it still be high end?

I checked this out at my local store tonight (also posted in-store for $300) to see if it was worth returning my 10" Home Depot Ryobi ($198 including stand).

Really nice saw, but the slider feels very inferior compared to Makita and DeWalts (and compared to the Bosch "slider"). Also, the routing of the power cord interferes with sliding - though this may be an assembly problem at the store I was at (there is a cord holder which may have been assembled too tight.

The store also has Hitachi 2 x 12" blades for $40.
They also have Hitachi 3 x 10" blades for $35.

I'm going to keep my Ryobi, but if I'd seen this deal a week ago, I'd be the proud owner of a Hitachi Mitre saw...

Do you consider Apple and Sony high end?

Is this a double bevel saw? Description doesn't say and the right fence gives a mixed impression.

lol hitachi is not high end. no precision, plus I can't change saws because the screw holding it won't come off no matter what.
