18 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Electric Power Jig Saw with L-BOXX-2 Hard Case (Tool-Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than the previous I recieved this , about 6 months ago, prior to using this new lithium , I was using the Bosch ni-cad , never had any issues with the previous ni-cad , just have to add , this one has a smaller foot print , and the added feature of the light is great , the battery life is outstanding with the 4 ah battery pack, which i might add , imo Bosch makes one of the better battery packs. Mine came in an L box , love those boxes , back on the jigsaw , I also use the Bosch jigsaw blades , this thing has good features with the blade release , and the no mar foot plate , and the splinter cover , I feel confident this will give me many years of use , just like the model I sold to upgrade , both saws have been excellent .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jigsaw This jigsaw is my favorite tool for intricate cutting jobs. The power is consistent, and the saw follows exactly where I want to cut. Very little vibration. The grip is very comfortable and blade changing is very easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the ease of a cordless We have owned this for quite a while, We are not easy on our tools by no means, this jigsaw has been through very heavy use and even took a tumble off the second story roof. I had my doubts about the battery, but surprisingly it holds a very good charge

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bosch JSH180BL I purchased this tool about 6 months ago and it is great. Good balance, fast cutting and blade changes are the easiest I've ever made. I should have gotten the Bosch years ago!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saw wherever you want So everyone has been waiting for, the review huh? I received the saw a couple of days ago and finally today (and for 30 seconds yesterday on the job), I had some time to play with it a little bit to get some initial thoughts. I had some when I pulled it out of the box, and well, here we go. Box, paperwork, L-Boxx, and everything else got here in true Bosch fashion. I pulled out the manual, registration paperwork, and the bags of goodies that arrived with the JSH180BL. Since I received the bare tool, I wasn’t expecting much, but it was really nice to see a splinter guard and some saw blades in the box. The saw blades that came with it were the T144DP (precision wood), T244D (speed wood), and the T123X (metal). Was this the first stuff I grabbed from the box? Of course not. I grabbed the saw. I was pleasantly surprised of the heft this thing had. It’s a solid tool. There is nothing cheap or flimsy about it. It’s heavy, solid, and fits nicely in the hand. The locking function for the trigger can be locked super simple with a slip of the thumb (right handed people), but unlocking takes more thought. You can’t simply hit the switch. That doesn’t mean it isn’t easy, but you actually have to move your index finger to it. Not stretched out uncomfortable, but a reach that tells the tool you are ready for business. The trigger on the saw is like that of the drills, and I suspect other tools. It’s almost warm and makes positive contact with your finger. It doesn’t feel like your finger is going to slide off of it. Just rough enough to give you grip, but not so smooth that you are trying to hold onto an ice cube. Oh, and the trigger response is phenomenal. For my first cut, I used the metal blade to cut through plastict. It did a great job, nice and clean. Then today, I decided to put some shape to a shield that my daughter wanted. I know it isn’t anything professional, but it gave me a chance to tear up some wood and not care about the outcome, well maybe a little bit. The first cut I made was with the 144 blade. I set the orbital action on zero, and it made a nice smooth cut (right side of below picture). When I changed to full out orbital action though, it tore through the pine like it had somewhere to go and it was in a hurry to get there. Found these results interesting, and hit the other side of the board with the 244 blade. The cut was rough, but it didn’t tear out like the first side above and again this was with full orbital action. Now this is where it gets pretty. I put the anti-splinter guide on the saw, and cut some pretty tight corners, about the circumference of a roll of painters tape, turning down the orbital action using the 244 blade. The splinter guard wont’ take the 144 as it is too fat. Anyways, the cuts both came out smooth. Now this was where it got interesting. The last cuts I did was with the 244 blade, splinter guard, and full out orbital action. The problem I had with this was that the always on dust blower didn’t. There was a pile of sawdust in front of the saw. This was kind of aggravating. For the rest of the cuts, it blew just fine, but for the last two cut, I had to blow away the dust so that I could see the line that I was cutting. I’m going to test some more this weekend and we’ll see some more situations. I’ll try to do some video of the saw cutting this time so that everyone can see what I was talking about. The tray insert is like others that have been seen on the forum. I find it odd to pick up the saw the way it is laying in the insert, and wish Bosch would have thought about the layout a bit more. If it would have had the handle to the front, it would have made the saw so much easier to pick up. The tray doesn’t hold the saw solid anyways. You can hear it wiggling around inside the l-boxx when you pick it up by the side handle. So why not make it easier to pull out of the case. At least if the handle was towards the front of the case, the weight of the saw would be on the shoe. Isn’t that where the weight of the saw is anyways when using it? I also find it a waste to have a spot for two batteries, plus room for a battery to be mounted on the saw during storage. The large compartment to the upper right of the picture, I would assume is for the charger, and another long slot for the dust collection, and overshoe. It is my opinion that since the saw only comes as a bare tool, It should be sent in a half tray. This way it could be pared with other tools you are adding to your collection. I doubt that someone is going to buy a bare tool saw unless they are already committed to the Bosch 18V line. Of course I could be wrong. Ok, so what do I think? How does the saw work for me? Will it last? I like the saw a lot; it works great, and is far better than I imagined it would be. I’m not saying that I felt it would be subpar for what I needed; it is just so much more than I expected. The light on the saw works great and lets you clearly see your line, with the exception mentioned above, which goes to the always on dust blower being 90% +/- useful. I need to play with it more to get a better feel for the dust blowing and provide more feedback here. The 244 blade however, isn’t designed for the anti-splinter guard. With this said, I’m sure I’m going to need to pick some more up soon. Holding the saw, it feels nice and smooth, comfortable and I could see it being like an extension of myself. My wrist wasn’t kinked in any awkward position, and I didn’t have to reposition during cuts. I know that I haven’t done any circles yet, but I’ll get to that soon. What I don’t like, but I’ll get use to is that the saw cannot stand up on the battery. It will fall forward. Not a big deal, I just don’t want to lay it on its side, which is what you have to do if the blade is in it. I guess this is the same for any jig saw though. I also found it awkward that the battery slides from the bottom and locks in place. I know why this is, it’s so you can check the fuel gauge on the battery. The problem lies in the fact that if you don’t lock the battery into position right, it could fall out while making a cut. I don’t know about you, but if I am making a cut, I want to stop the saw when I’m done, not when the battery falls out. The instruction manual shows all the nice things you can get for it. Many different accessories and how to use them. It also shows things that come with the saw like the overshoe. I couldn’t find it though. It says that the shoe hooks over the front of the metal footplate, and snaps into the rear of the saw. My problem with this is that there isn’t one as described. The foot of the saw is plastic, but it is screwed down. There is no steel overshoe to be found. The book refers to one like the one the 572’s use. I will have to find a minute I guess I’ll have to call Bosch, unless someone here has something of use. I think that in the near future, I will get an overshoe (since it wasn’t in the box), and also ave to pick up the dust extraction (also an option). Until then, I’m going to use the heck out of the saw, and write more here when I have more to write.
