Summary: Amazing tool or more I should say instrument. I am a big fan of DeWalt tools and this Jig saw is the second one I have bought. Both work great, this one is for my own personal use as the shop one is in constant use. Once you go cordless you will go out of your way to find the cordless to use even if the old corded one is closer. Life is so much better with cordless tools!!
Summary: Previously owned a Craftsman 19.2V cordless jigsaw. Liked that one, but LOVE this one. It cuts where I point it and has an incredibly solid feel. I recently did put in some stud walls in a post-frame garage and put in OSB sheeting inside. I was very happy to pick up this saw for the many little notches and cutout I needed to make. I also like the fan that blows dust off the cut line. I've never been very happy about using a jigsaw before.
Summary: Love the saw! Cuts through anything from plywood to shorter cuts of 2x4s. Having a blower, adjustable cutting, tight turning, long lasting cordless battery are all highlights. Downside: one battery with a 2 hour charging time! And it is heavy to hold for hours but soon my arms did get stronger! Would buy again and shipping was fast!
Its not a bad tool and I use it frequently enough for all ...

Summary: Its not a bad tool and I use it frequently enough for all sorts of things. My one big complaint is that it looses the blade way to often. First I thought it was me, so I kept a closer eye on how I was inserting the blade. It didn't solve the problem, still happens occasionally. Kind of a heavy thing. I've had the battery for a number of years and its going dead.
Summary: This is one "honker" of a jig saw! It will cut through anything you put it up against quickly. The battery last a good long time and you simply can't beat DE Walt tools. Yes, I'm prejudiced and proud of it. :-) I did order the case separately and glad I did. I have had zero problem with blade changes. Just pay attention to what you are doing and the blade change works well.
Summary: Very nice tool, a bit overpriced but very reasonable compared to say Makita. Has all the horse power you'd ever need in a cordless jigsaw, yes it is heavy but thats a good thing - You wouldn't want to do delicate scroll work with a tool like this.
