Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jackofalltrades Great little saw
This is a great little saw, it has long run time and is more than enough saw for most all jig saw jobs. I would rate it 5 stars if it were not for that little worthless plastic guard, which flies out the instant you turn the saw on. I recommend throwing that in the trash as soon as you open up the package, the saw works perfectly without it. I can't believe that Dewalt would include such worthless guard for such a great saw. Dewalt is my main tool supplier and I am ashamed of this little guard, bad for the Dewalt name. The saw itself is absolutely great and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cabinetman Dewalt 20v jig saw
Very well built. A lot of times you can't depend on battery powered power tools to replace the corded tools. But this jig saw works well enough and long enough that I don't have to carry my corded jig saw

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dboy Great tool. Minor setbacks.
I've had this tool for about 6 months now. Hard to beat the utility of cordless tools. Bought this as a bare tool option. Overall I am satisfied with the saw. Some caveats: the blade does tend to stray a little. Seems to do more so than others but I guess it just encourages more attention during cutting. Just like other users I have experienced the strange phenomenon of the blade popping out. It's also happened with my co-worker also. Perhaps the result of sloppy engineering (or better yet: precision engineering). Make your own opinion but I would still go be this saw a "buy" rating. Let's hope they figure out the ghost blade-release problem sooner rather than later!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ram195 useless tool
The T blades will not stay in, I tried the blades included as well as Bosh and BD brand, noine will stay in. In addition the flush blade that is supplied with the tool also clamps at a 10 degree angle to the tool, that's until the blade falls out after about 2 inches of cut. Really could not evaluate anything else since I could not use. with all the running around and loss of time on the job this is a very expensive tool.
Very discouraging as I have been trying to update all my tools to 20V of one manufacturer. Well once again its proven you cant just blindly assume all will be good because of a color.

I bit the bullet and went cordless with both jig saw and drill, both 20 volt. Glad to see that they decided to sell this unit without the battery and charger. I have used both quite a bit and like them both. Some have reported that the T-blades are dropping out and I have not experienced that problem. I have made sure that the blades are fully inserted before starting and that has worked for me so far. Easy to use and fits the hand nice. Has the power and battery life seems long lasting. Appears to be constructed well. It has a good weight and size to it.
Cons: NO CASE!!! I stand on everything I have stated above. But no case for a $150.00 tool was almost enough for me to walk away from it. If I buy a quality tool I expect it to last and not knocked around during storage and transporting it. For the price I think DEWALT could have put it in a case.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spa167 Worked as hoped. Excellant.
It was nice to work with a good quality tool that uses a common battery as my other tools. It performed very well.
