This week, Hitachi has now lowered the price of their top line sliding miter saw C12RSH. Lowe’s now has it at $399.00. If you go to the post office and get a ‘moving package’ from the Post Office, you should be able to go online and get a 10% coupon you can use in addition to the $399.00 price. They will email you the coupon within 2-3 days, so not an ‘immediate’ coupon.

On the other hand, if you have a Costco nearby, and they sell/have this saw in stock – they have it for $349.00. What a deal. I saw one in the Plano (TX) store on Wednesday, but I was in my car getting tires, and had no way to transport it. I live about 120 east of there, so next time I go into Plano I’ll take the truck – just in case.

I was waiting/hoping for a lower price or sale price around Thanksgiving/Black Friday – as this is the chop saw that I have wanted. At $399, this is a pretty good deal. At $349 (Costco) it is a super deal.

Best of luck.

Back when I bought my Dewalt I looked at the Hitachi and I was pretty impressed with it. I codgiataed over the decision for several days and it literally came down to a coin toss for me.

I bought my C12RSH over a year ago at Menards for $399.

It is a great saw.

I have this saw, too, and it’s an excellent value. The rails can stay forward, so you can put it against a wall. The rails themselves are also quite large and strong. And the adjustment knob for miter angle is nice to have. Dust collection is OK with a vacuum, but you can improve it quite a bit by taping on a larger dust shroud (made with cardboard).
