This Hitachi table saw came up for sale on the local craigslist here.

Anyone know if it is a belt drive or direct drive? Seller is asking $275.00 for it. Is he in the ball park price wise, and what’s the good, bad, and the ugly on these saws…

It’s definitely a full size cast iron belt drive saw with an induction motor. Price isn’t bad if it’s in decent shape. Saws were OK, but not great relative to a few others IMO. Fence is a little weak but functional, as is the sheet steel used on the wings, body, and legs. The saw morphed into the Porter Cable PCB270TS.

Anyone up for a restoration?

Thanks knotscott. Friend of mine is looking for a TS and said he wants to go check it out. He called me with a raft of questions about it and I know nothing about the Hitachi table saws.

I have it and like it. The fence is a touch weak but mine has never gone out of adjustment. The wings are not truly coplaner to the top which is the only real issue and they can’t really be bent to be so. Mine are set so the far edges are in line with the cast iron top since any board that doesn’t make it to the far edge of the wings won’t be so flimsy as to bend and be out of whack while cutting and any board longer then the wings will need that outer edge for support. Mine cuts nicely and I can’t complain about it. Just remember that it isn’t light and will require help to move.
