10 Inch Sliding Miter Saw Head to Head
In today’s market, contractors are often moving from job to job to keep their projects moving and keep their crews busy. This makes the weight and mobility of a saw an important factor when considering investing in a new miter saw. I’ve heard many a story of guys buying a new saw to replace a functioning saw or leaving a saw to collect dust in their garage because they just got sick of moving their monster saw to and from jobs.
The Weight of each saw is captured in the graph below.
Winner Mobility: Hitachi C10FSHPS
We named Hitachi as the winner of our Mobility assessment for two reasons, first and foremost the saw is the lightest of the contractor grade saws and it’s no frills design and heavy duty construction make it well equipped to get banged up in the back of a truck and stand up to job-site abuses. The footprint of the saw is somewhat larger than other saws with more advanced slide mechanisms but the C10FSHPS compacts nicely for transportation and our crew found it really easy to carry with the convenient top handle.
