12” Dual Compound Miter Saw by Metabo HPT

12” Dual Compound Miter SawMetabo HPT announced the launch of a New 12” Dual Compound Miter Saw featuring the Xact Cut LED Shadow Line System (model C12FDHB video) to its miter saw lineup that offers a powerful motor for faster cuts and extreme vertical cut capacity for extra versatility on the job.

This miter saw is powered by a 15-Amp, gear drive motor that delivers best in class 4,300 RPM no-load speed to quickly cut through hardwoods saving time and blade wear. Extra tall dual sliding fences easily accommodate a 7-inch piece of baseboard standing vertical and up to a 7-1/2-inch molding vertically nested against the fence. It can cut through a 4”x4” with one pass; a testament to its ability to cut larger stock suitable for a range of applications like decking and installing crown molding.

Xact Cut Shadow line system

For even more cutting accuracy, the new Xact Cut Shadow line system uses an LED light to cast a shadow exactly where the blade will cut and never needs adjustment. It’s easy to see in the shade and partial sun and works better than a laser line in bright settings.

With miter ranges from 0-52° right & left and bevel ranges 0-48° to the right & left, this 12” miter saw offers a broader range of cuts. User-friendly miter angles can be quickly adjusted using thumb actuated detent stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 31.6° and 45°. The bevel angle range easily adjusts to preset detent stops at 0°, 33.9° and 45° for convenience. The large table offers great material support with a vice clamping system to secure the workpiece.

The product has Metabo HPT’s 5-Year Warranty. Additionally, the Metabo HPT C12FDHB 12” dual compound miter saw comes complete with a 12” TCT Saw blade and dust bag. It also comes with vice assembly and 6mm blade change wrench. It’s a versatile dual compound miter saw ideal for trim carpenters, framers and woodworkers who demand precision and speed.
