Hitachi has quietly rolled out a new portable table saw, C10RJ. The new Hitachi table saw looks to have strong features and a convenient roller stand design.
This is not Hitachi’s first portable table saw, but it looks quite a bit better than previous models. Looking at its features and price, I’d say Hitachi is positioning the new C10RJ table saw to compete with popular pro brands, such as Bosch, Dewalt, and Ridgid.
Features include a 35″ rip capacity, a soft start motor with electric brake, and rear outfeed support.
- 15A motor
- 4,500 RPM
- 10″ blade
- 35″ rip capacity (right)
- 22″ x 28-3/4″ table surface
- 3-1/8″ cut capacity at 90°, 2-1/4″ at 45°
- Soft start
- Electric brake
- On-board accessory storage
- Rear outfeed support
It comes with a folding roller stand, adjustable rip fence, blade guard, riving knife, anti-kickback pawls, and although it’s not easily visible, I spy a push stick tucked into the right side of the saw.
The outfeed support is a nice addition, but I’ve learned to make do with an external outfeed support stand. I’ve got a roller stand on my shopping list for my next big project. Still, attached outfeed support is hard to replace with external solutions, most notable on uneven ground where it can be difficult to align everything properly.
This new Hitachi jobsite table saw looks well designed and competitive. If I was shopping around for a new table saw, the C10RJ would probably make it to my shortlist. But, I’d want to see some user reviews first, as things like fence adjustability and cutting performance are hard to gauge from on-paper specs and product images. Oh – that’s my job, isn’t it? I’ll make some calls.

I’m really liking this new momentum by Hitachi.
Someone mentioned wanting to see greater marketing push by Hitachi. Here’s a cheesy banner image I found on an Amazon Hitachi brand page:
That Hitachi Triple Anvil impact driver is a VERY impressive tool, by the way.
