The Hitachi is small and compact with comfortable grips. It was the favorite among those with smaller hands. The adjustments were easy to use, though the bevel adjustment slipped beyond the 45° stop. The dust-ejection system was excellent, and the table was sturdy and flat. The blade bolt is small, so be careful not to overtighten and strip it.

I'm very pleased with this saw. I've had it for more than a year now and have had no problems. It's easy to handle, steady and noticeably lighter than the Craftsman I had previously. I don't use it for real heavy work or extended periods but for what I need it for, it's great.
