Over at Amazon, this Hitachi 10-inch single bevel compound miter saw recently dropped in price down to $99 with free shipping.
While the saw doesn’t come with many bells and whistles, it seems to be reasonably well recommended, and is probably the best compound miter saw you could find for $100 or less.
This is an older model, but that just means that there’s been plenty of time for users to weigh in on its quality and performance.
It can cut lumber up to 2-5/16″ thick and 5-21/32″ wide. If you need greater cutting capacity than that, you’ll probably have to step up to a sliding miter saw or even a sliding 12-inch saw.
One of the benefits of a non-sliding miter saw is its smaller footprint and lower weight. This model weighs just a little over 26 pounds. Hitachi says that this is the lightest 10-inch compound miter saw in its class, although we haven’t checked to see if this is still true.
- Comes with a 24T 10-inch blade, blade wrench, dust bag, material support extension
- Features a vise assembly (hold-down clamp)
- Pivoting flip fence
Price: $99 and NOT eligible for Hitachi’s $25 off $100+ promo
We don’t know how long this sale price will last, but we do know that it will also be $99 as part of Lowes’ Black Friday 2015 deals.
There’s another version of this saw that has a built-in laser cut guide line, and it is eligible for the Hitachi promo. It’s currently priced at nearly $147.43, or around $122 after discount. If you ask me, I’d just get the non-laser version for $99.
