Power Tools Pro are an active Hitachi Power Tools supplier and have large stocks of Hitachi tools including two powerful compound mitre saws from the 305mm TCT blade range, the C12LC and C12FCH each use and incorporate a feature from the popular C12LCH mitre saw, if you use Hitachi tools you will be aware of the revolutionary Hitachi LCD display and accurate cutting laser marker.
Hitachi’s C12LC 305mm compound mitre saw includes a digital LCD display to easily see the mitre saw and bevel readings for operator precision and accuracy with all cuts. The LCD scale located on the front of the mitre saw, above the scale adjustment knob, allows operators to quickly and accurately set the bevel and mitre angles. A handy backlight button can be activated on the scale improving visibility if working in dimly lit conditions or where there is not enough natural light.
The C12FCH 305mm compound mitre saw has the Hitachi laser marker indicating where the blade will cut on the material and can be adjusted to the right or left depending on user preference. Both the C12LC and C12FCH use a 1520w motor to smoothly cut through most industrial jobs including hardwoods. A pivoting aluminum fence that stands at a height of 130mm allows crown molding to be cut vertically plus mitre angles range from 0-52 degrees, both left and right for a broader range of cuts. Mitre angles can be quickly adjusted using Hitachi’s thumb actuated positive stops and the soft grip covers on the horizontal handle reduce vibration and fatigue, while adding comfort and safety. The large base provides better support and balance to prevent material warping and the handy externally accessible carbon brush makes for quick and easy changes reducing down time of these Hitachi mitre saws.
C12LC and C12FCH mitre saws come with 305mm TCT saw blades, dust bag, vise assembly, box wrench and hex bar wrench, they are the ideal heavy duty 305mm compound mitre saws for trim carpenters, framers and woodworkers who demand and require both precision and reliability and both mitre saws are fully compatible with the Hitachi UU610CZ universal workstation

Music in the workplace sets a pace for hard work and keeps minds active on those jobs which can be repetitive. Building sites and workshops are not generally friendly environments for electronic gear and constantly replacing underpriced household radios can become more expensive than buying a unit designed to cope with the dust, mud, vibration and impacts of heavy industry. Job site radios are designed to stand up to the rigours of an industrial environment while still providing sound clarity and enough power to be heard in most working conditions.
The Hitachi UR18DSL Radio is a good solid job site radio that gives crystal clear sound from a pair of 76mm cones that offer direct sound as well as a pair of bass ports giving depth of sound that belies the small size of the radio. As well as sharp radio reception this Hitachi Radio has input connections for mobile phones and MP3 players as well as a recharging port for mobile devices. The UR18DSL Hitachi radio uses 14.4v or 18v batteries for power as well as a standard corded source of power, this site radio does not charge power tool batteries.
The Bosch GML50 Radio Charger is a real tough professional piece of kit. Drop tests have proves that this Bosch radio can survive falls up to 9mtr and still be fully functional afterwards, now that that you call tough. The robust construction is not at the cost of other features: the GML50 radio acts as a charger for Bosch lithium batteries from 14.4v to 18v, as well as having sockets for multimedia additions including AUX-in, USB and CD/MMC card slot. Sound quality is great with full 50w power delivered by 4 speakers and is the first jobsite radio with a powerful integrated subwoofer.
Power Tools Pro stock a wide range of industrial power tools from major market leading manufacturers Bosch Power Tools, Makita and ever popular DeWALT. We specialise in cordless power tools, including cordless drills and cordless circular saws plus heavy industrial power tools and power tool accessories including the full range of jobsite radios.

DeWALT NANO power tools use Lithium- Ion batteries to manufacture a range of cordless power tools that are compact and lighter in weight than cordless power tools using NiMH or NiCD batteries. The range is available in 18v, 28v and 36v with the added advantage that DeWALT NANO batteries are fully backwards compatible with all previous DeWALT cordless power tools.
Lithium technology not only allows DeWALT power tools to make battery packs smaller and lighter, they also have an extremely long working lifespan, factory figures state in excess of 2000 charges, this is up to four times that of some competitors’ NiCD or NiMH battery packs.
With over 30 tools compatible with the 18v NANO batteries, choice of using the right tool is never a problem. For example the DC827KL Impact Driver gives high torque figures (150 Nm) from a very compact tool, ideal for working in restricted spaces. The industrial rubberised grip on these cordless impact drivers reduces vibration and an electronic brake eliminates the risk of spin-on damaging screw heads and other fittings and fixings.
The DeWALT DC390KL Circular Saw is another popular industrial power tool that uses the latest lithium technology from DeWALT NANO batteries. These lightweight DeWALT cordless tools are easy and safe to control assisted by a magnesium bevel plate with keyless adjustment, electronic motor brake and full guards offer complete safety plus the lock off switch allows safe easy adjustment of all settings.

Impact Wrenches extend the power ability of the cordless impact drivers platform by allowing direct attachment of ½” sockets and fittings. This allows these types of industrial power tools extremely useful in an automotive workshop and also assembly of heavy fabricated framework on building sites.
Impact Wrenches, or as they are often fondly known as ‘Rattle Guns’, allow fast application of high torque to a nut or bolt. On vehicles this can make operations that would normally involve careful application of breaker bar and an extension handle to be easily and more safely achieved by a single skilled fitter. Torque is delivered in quick impacts (hence the rattle) which is more efficient than a constant pressure on a tight fixing.
Makita produce a range of Impact Wrenches and Drill Drivers that have short compact bodies, ideal for automotive work where room to manoeuvre is often limited.
The Makita BTW200SAJ 24v Impact Wrench is a heavy duty cordless power tool that can apply and release torque of up to 200Nm. This makes it ideal for heavy automotive work, such as HGV maintenance or heavy fabrication fitting like steel support frames in buildings where corded power may be difficult to maintain. This extra power is also useful for restoration work where corroded fixings may require extra “grunt” to loosen off and will hamper and slow down the job using less effective less powerful alternative tools.
The Makita 6934FDWFE 14.4v Impact Wrench is supplied with 2Ah NiMH Makita batteries and a fast Makita charger. This gives the user an almost non-stop shift cycle as these batteries will charge faster than constant use of the tool can discharge cells. The 6934FDWFE Makita Impact Wrench has a useful built-in LED job light that makes working in the nooks and crannies of a vehicle far easier and safer.
