Compound Feature for Precise Miters and Bevels
Hitachi designed the C12FDH for versatile, easy use. The thumb-actuated positive miter stops for simple miter
adjustments at the most common angles between zero and 52 degrees to the left and right. This design allows you to
easily change the angle of the cutting blade for creating miters in crown molding and other trim pieces.The bevel scale
ranges from zero to 48 degrees to the left and right, allowing your material to stay in place while you flip the saw
head to make opposing cuts, and the saw head bevels to the right or left, also allowing the material to stay securely in
place for cutting efficiency. After your major bevel angle is secured, a micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial
in a precise angle without the weight of the saw head compromising accuracy.
The 12-inch TCT saw blade (included) makes easy work of delicate trim and other woodwork, and the tall, pivoting
aluminum fence stands at a height of 5-1/8 inches to allow for accurate vertical cutting of crown molding and cutting of
large workpieces up to 2-5/16 inches high and 5-21/32 inches deep.
Laser Marker Technology for Perfect Cuts Everytime
Hitachi equipped the C12FDH with its exclusive Laser Marker System, which can be activated before the blade is in motion
for exact alignment and predictable blade placement. The laser marker is easily adjustable to suit your preferences,
simply line up the laser with your mark on the workpiece, and the saw blade will make an exact cut along the laser
guide. As long as your measurements are right, your cuts will be, too!
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
The C12FDH has plenty of features to help you make the perfect cut the first time. To start, it has a powerful 15-amp
motor that generates a no-load speed of up to 4,000 RPM to smoothly and easily cut through even the toughest hardwoods.
For precise, safe cutting, a splinter guard behind the fence increases safety and reduces tear-out for clean, finished
cuts, and a comfortable horizontal handle with a vibration-reducing elastomer grip prevents slippage and keeps you in
control at all times. Additionally, a large base provides support and balance to prevent material from warping, and a
built-in clamping system holds your workpiece in place. An added bonus, easily accessible carbon brushes will help your
saw perform for the long term.
The Hitachi C12FDH measures 24-5/8 x 30-23/32 x 27 inches and weighs 46.3 pounds. Durably built, this tool is backed
with an industry-leading five-year warranty.
