Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gmachine Cuts like butter
Heavier than competitor, but that is a sign of quality guts and it did help absorb vibration well. Cut like butter with Bosch blades. Variable speed is great. I do wish there was blower and a light. I ended up taking off the splinter guard and the plastic guard around the blade and blowing with my mouth often so so I could see the cut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjj Awesome piece of equipment!
Ive had many pieces of cordless equipment from many different manufacturers. The technology just keeps getting better and better and nobody does it better than Milwaukee!!!

Quality tool. I will agree with other comments it is a bit heavy, but it is sturdy.

The saw is just well designed and is a great tool. I am not a professional but I decided to try the Milwaukee brand and was not disappointed.

i am a professional carpenter and use this jigsaw all the time from light framing to fine trim work. when the jigsaw is paired with a 5.0ah battery i can use it for days. once you get used to the weight of the saw you can use it for things as delicate as coping cuts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JC Broke on second cut
Brand new, second test cut, torqued the blade a little and the guide shifted sideways permanently and orbital action lever no longer has an effect. I'm usually happy with milwaukee tools so I'm going to count this as a fluke unless it happens again, but very disappointed as this shouldn't really be a fragile tool. Not happy about that as I needed it for a job today. Taking it to a service center first thing Monday.
Assuming that was a fluke, besides that a theoretically excellent jigsaw. I expect solid battery life like all the other M18 tools. Has all the right useful adjustments, easy to set. Wish it had a light though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1415 Really good.
It was bigger and heavier than I thought it would be. Very stable and powerful. I'm happy! I switched to Milwaukee tools a couple of years ago and it has turned out to be a great choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Good Product, Poor Retailing Practice
This saw works so much better than the several cheaper corded ones I have owned. The base is stable and doesn't need constant adjustment and it has plenty of power. The biggest problem I have with this purchase is that it was on the shelf in a closed box in the store but when I got it home I found it had been used and returned to the shelf. There were no protective packaging in the box and no instructions- just the saw. I consider this to be very poor practice by Home Depot and will surely be checking my selections for purchase carefully before I buy from now on. I kept it this time because there is nothing wrong with the saw, it was th e last one on the shelf, and I needed one for immediate use.
