Summary: This saw was the Top Value in our test of 10 corded jigsaws in the October 2014 issue of WOOD. Sporting a very strong blower, this saw enabled us to easily see marked layout lines. It has a very comfortable grip, and has the variable-speed dial on its front for easy access and visibility. It lacks a variable-control trigger, but it is soft-starting. You don’t get a plastic no-mar pad for the metal shoe, and its blade clamp proved the most difficult to operate.
Summary: Finally upgraded from the jig saw that I've had for about 20 years. I cannot believe I waited this long. This tool is amazingly fast and so easy to use. A fantastic buy. would recommend to anyone. I asked a carpenter friend to recomend a couple of saws that I wanted to replace and Hitachi was the brand he recommended to me.
