I had a Hitachi Hybrid Saw, and didn’t care for it. Then I noticed the same saw branded as Porter Cable at Lowes. That makes me very nervous because it tells me Porter Cable had nothing to do with the design or engineering of the saw.
My hitachi adjustment wheels broke off (both of them), and the frame was flimsy and bent under normal usage in a shop setting.
My advise: shop for a used Jet. I have the gold series contractors saw with cast iron wings and the Xacta II fence, and I love it.
