The Hitachi Circular Saw has a powerful fan cooled motor and a heavy-duty aluminium base with scale. There is no riving knife, which means easier plunge cutting. It is fitted with a soft-grip handle, easy access bevel leveller, easy access cutting depth adjustment. The external brush caps provide ease of maintainance and the unique 90° angle setting system ensures accuracy of 90° cuts. The spindle lock provides easy blade replacement.
