I bought that same saw (Hitachi) two years ago, I have worked it hard cutting 3×3x8’ oak up into 1×1x8’ then into 1×1x5 inches, it has never quit me. I threw that plastic dust collection pan in the trash, and make my own that fits a 4” duct. I am about to buy another one. This saw has made me alot of money. I don’t use it every day, but every other day I work the crap out of it. I am not a pro (not close) just a extra money type a job. All my cuts are srtaight so i can’t comment on the angle cutting. I did cut an air hole so the motor can cool better (I have a hefty dust collection system to provide some air flow for the motor). Only other thing i can mention is to spend the money on a good blade. I use the diablo 24 teeth blade, last a long time on the oak.

-- It is fun to see where an imagination and two bored saws will get you.
