I recently picked up an Hitachi c12fdh. I had been considering the Dewalt DW715/716, a Bosch CM12 or the hitachi, but walked into the blue big box and saw it on special for $199.99. I promptly found a flat cart, and it came home with me.
The blade on it is a 12inch 32t (what is this even used for? Hatchet chopping 2×4s?), so that has to go.
Theres the obvious fast choice of the diablo d12100x, but I think I want something more.
Im looking at the freud LU80/LU79. Im pretty sure I want full kerf (any reason I shouldnt?)
Other options im entertaining are the dewalt dw7674 which is crazy expensive but has HUGE carbide teeth (but strangely doesnt get amazing reviews in the 1 or 2 ive found). Also, the forrest duraline looks pretty cool. Most projects go through the miter saw which till this point had been a harbor freight 10in slider. I dont mind spending some money for this blade.
