I have been considering replacing our
job-site workhorse, my Hitachi 15-
inch chop saw, for a while now. After
some checking around, I decided the
DeWalt 706 might be a good candidate.
I put the 706 through its paces,
and I’m sold.
Our crews have been using the
Hitachi 15-inch for more than 15 years.
It has been a staple on our job sites and
excelled in durability and capacity. As
production trim carpenters, we prefer
to cut all our baseboard and crown
molding standing up because it saves
time and effort and increases profitability.
We need equipment that will hold
up to abusive conditions. The Hitachi
has always met our requirements,
though at more than 50 pounds,
