As the title says…looking at a used one with extra set of carbide blades. It looks pretty heavy duty compared with the newer bench-tops…Thanks in advance.

What did you wind up doing, buy it or leave it be? I’m not to sure about the Hitachi brand name.

I went and saw it….its more like a stationary tool rather than a benchtop model. Build like a tank, cast iron bed and very little plastic. I looked like a good piece of equipment but it was too “stationary” for my small garage/shop. I would have definitely taken it if I had room.
