Excerpt: Very handy tool where electric power is not easily available. Plenty of power for cutting in the work that my projects demand. Tool was reconditioned, but it looks brand new. Very pleased with my purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Powerful, Sturdy Built
Summary: I purchased this saw to replace a corded jigsaw that is used on a manufacturing floor as part of a cord cutting (less trip hazards) initiative. I showed the saw to the shop floor and promptly returned it for two reasons: 1) This thing is heavy. Heavy enough to notice the difference between this and the corded version. Also the worst part; the balance seems to be off by a fairly wide margin.
Excerpt: There are just some applications where a good jigsaw is the only tool for the job. This saw is powerful and I can carry it into the loft of a house or into a crawlspace where taking a corded tool is both hazardous or incomvinient. Who wants to crawl into a restricted space doing duct work for example with a 120 volt cord wrapped around them? This cordless tool fills a niche where other tools just dont measure up. Well worth it for the safety and comvenience.
Pros: Durable, Easy to use, High Power Output, Short Charge Time, Versatile
Excerpt: I only gave it 4 stars due the lack of blade illumination. This tool gets a 5star as it is advertised. It would be better if there was an LED light to illuminate the blade area (can be difficult to see the blade with shield in place). Overall this is an excellent, well built tool.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Cutting Speed, Good Design, Long Run Time, Powerful
Excerpt: Wish I had just bought a new one. It appears the motor is new but the head is old and evidently has a lot of wear. It was even dirty around the shaft that drives the blade. The orbital knob just flops back and forth and evidently does nothing. For a few bucks more, buy new and put the wear on it yourself rather than buying a halfway refurbished worn out one.
