Exclusive Laser Marker System ensures precision cuts. View larger.
Dial in precise angles with micro-miter and micro-bevel adjustment knobs.
Patented fixed rail slide system doesn't require rear clearance. View larger.
Hitachi designed the C12RSH for versatile, easy use. The miter scale ranges between zero and 46 degrees to the left and zero and 57 degrees to the right, and a micro-miter knob lets you dial in precise angles. Additionally, positive miter stops allow you to easily change the angle of the cutting blade for creating miters in crown molding and other trim pieces.
The bevel scale ranges from zero to 45 degrees to the left and right, allowing your material to stay in place while you flip the saw head to make opposing cuts. After your major bevel angle is secured, a micro-bevel adjustment knob can be used to dial in a precise angle, while positive stops allow for quick and easy measurements and settings.
The 12-inch TCT saw blade (included) makes easy work of delicate trim and other woodwork, and the pivoting fence raises a height of 4-11/16 inches to allow for accurate vertical cutting of crown molding and other large workpieces.
Compact Slide System Requires Zero Clearance
With its revolutionary compact slide system, the C12RSH requires no rear clearance like other sliding saws. Hitachi's patented fixed rail system allows the saw head to glide smoothly along twin rails, which stay put and do not protrude to the rear of the saw. The result is a sliding saw that can be operated on a small work surface that has minimal rear clearance, such as up against a wall.
Laser Marker Technology for Perfect Cuts
Hitachi equipped the C12RSH with its exclusive Laser Marker System, which can be activated before the blade is in motion for exact alignment and predictable blade placement. The laser marker is easily adjustable to the left or right of the cut mark to suit your preferences, simply line up the laser with your mark on the workpiece, and the saw blade will make an exact cut along the laser guide. As long as your measurements are right, your cuts will be, too!
Chock-Full of User-Friendly Features
The C12RSH has plenty of features to help you make the perfect cut the first time. To start, it has a powerful 15-amp motor that generates a no-load speed of up to 3,800 RPM to smoothly and easily cut through even the toughest hardwoods.
For precise, safe cutting, a fixed splinter guard increases safety and reduces tear-out for clean, finished cuts, and a comfortable vertical handle with a vibration-reducing elastomer grip prevents slippage and keeps you in control at all times.
The C12RSH also includes a dust bag that minimizes accumulation of dust and particles in your both your workspace and the saw's interior components, keeping your jobsite clean and prolonging the life of the tool. An added bonus, easily accessible carbon brushes will help your saw perform for the long term.
The Hitachi C12RSH measures 23-7/16 x 36-5/8 x 27-15/16 inches and weighs 63.9 pounds. Durably built, this tool is backed by an industry-leading five year warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
I am a advanced DIY-er, and electrical engineer. I worked my whole life with gears and motors, and I am very passionate about tools. More over, I do keep all my tools in order, clean, organized, oiled and square.
I wanted just to make all of you aware of the hidden defective casting of the turn table. Please, when you open the box look at the turn table from the back side to make sure the casting imperfections are not obvious, it might be a sign of a microscopic crack which sooner or later will give up. That is what happened with mine, after few months (5 to be exact) of light weekend use. I did notice the imperfections when I bought it, but I did not paid attention to them, and now I pay the price. It is the first time for me when a 400$ tool gave up so quickly, the crack on the cast aluminum turn table make this tool useless now.
So, I will try to share all my experience with you. I contacted "Hitachi" customer service few days after I notice the crack, though I was in the middle of an project that required a miter saw. So I bought a 10" miter saw as backup. Hitachi customer representative answered my emails after a week, and when I wanted to send some pictures I took with the cracks and the existing imperfection seems, he refused and send me few shops addresses where I could take it to be evaluated. I was charged 40$ for an evident defect to be evaluated. The mechanic (which is authorized by other brands too) called me after about 4 weeks just to tell me that the tool was abused, and due to this fact, the warranty was voided.Read more ›
The ONLY con... if you can call it that:
This saw, when fully extended, has slightly more "play" in the arm than say the Rigid, Milwaukee, or Dewalt offerings due to the arrangement of the slide rails, but it takes a decent amount of horizontal force to make it to move at all (even then it only about 1/16" at full extension), use it as intended and you will never know.
Should you buy this saw? If you need a good saw for cutting trim, picture frames, and 10,000 other odd jobs, then yes, yes you should.Read more ›
