Milwaukee Electric Tool introduces the next generation in cordless cutting with the M12 Cordless High Performance Jig Saw. With its innovative Hybrid Grip design, the M12 Jig Saw is the most compact, lightest weight professional cordless jig saw on the market. The saw’s cutting power and control delivers an incredible portable cutting solution for a wide range of trade applications. Powered by the M12 REDLITHIUM battery system, the tool is ideal for trim carpenters, remodelers, cabinet/countertop installers, plumbers, electricians, and HVAC professionals for making quick cuts in wood, metal, wall tile, or plastics without the hassle of pulling out a cord. The Hybrid Grip handle design combines the best features from both top handle and barrel grip jig saws to provide superior cut control. The low center of gravity grip is ideal for precision during curved cutting applications. A 3/4 in. stroke length and 0-2,800 SPM variable speed trigger deliver fast and accurate cuts in multiple materials. The Quik-Lok T-Shank blade clamp and tool free 450 bevel capability allow for quick and easy tool adjustments. An LED light highlights the cutting surface for improved visibility. The M12 Jig Saw is designed to minimize vibration by using a fully counterbalanced mechanism and positioning the limited tool weight directly over the cutting area. Backed by Milwaukee’s 5-year warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blown away by the power! I'm a big fan of Milwaukee's M12 line, so when I was in the market for a new jigsaw, their M12 jigsaw was at the top of my list - my other consideration being Ridgid's very comfortable barrel-grip jigsaw. I ended up going with the Milwaukee because the idea of dragging out an extension cord every time I needed to make a quick cut with the jigsaw didn't sound very appealing. I did have concerns about a 12v jigsaw not having enough power or run time, but my faith in Milwaukee's M12 line allowed me to roll the dice on it. Let me say that my concerns about power and run time were unwarranted - this jig saw is AWESOME! The saw has tackled everything I've thrown at it so far without any issues whatsoever. As for battery life, I haven't had any problems there either, though admittedly I tend to grab my jigsaw when I need to make quick cuts - I'm not using it constantly on a daily basis. Even if I was, though, I've got enough M12 batteries that I could easily swap and charge without worry. I also have to highlight one very cool feature - the anti-splintering insert has a very handy point on center to help you guide your cut along your line. It's little touches like this that I really appreciate with Milwaukee's products. I'm in love with this jigsaw! The only way they can make it better is if they built in a little air blower to keep your line-of-sight clear. Maybe that'll be included when the eventual FUEL version comes out! March 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Jigsaw I've Ever Owned! As a general contractor with severely arthritic hands, I was looking for something that would fit well in my hand, not be too heavy and still get the job done-this is it! I was a little surprised at the amount of power with the M12 battery; the variable speed trigger is nice and the work light is surprisingly bright and very useful. Adjustments to the shoe are easy with the single flip lever and blade changes are simple. I'm sure this will handle anything I can throw at it. Awesome tool! February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Surprising Power This is really a great little tool. I was completely blown away by the power. The new grip is much better than my old corded top handle jig saw. January 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best battery jig I've used Normally I would recomend against most battery tools, due to battery life. However this jig is perfect for small jobs that a corded jig just can't reach or if you don't have power source. It has an led that lights your working area making it easier to see your cut. The blade is super easy and quick to change. All in all it's a great portable jig. March 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent power for a battery The cut is true, the power lasts a long time! The light was an unexpected surprise. The padded base saved the acrylic I cut today without having to improvise. March 4, 2014
