Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dino I found the jig saw to be a lot heaver to handle than I thought, I also use it for projects with small kids. Also I used it one day , took the blade out stored it in bag, and the next day went to put the blade back in and it would only go in on an angle not letting it line up with the guide wheels. I will take it back to home depot and have them order me a new one ( because they do not carry them in the store ) and try again. If same problem occurs I will have to try another brand. Which would be a shame because I rave about your name to everyone. I own planners, table saws, chop saws , battery powered circular saws, 3 sets of the drill and driver sets, lights, sanders ( table top and portables, routers, clamps, etc..... with your product name on it. I thought this would be a no brainer. Also for the price of the tool alone you really should include a battery.

I am a general contractor and I own almost all the rigid cordless tools and I have been very happy with most of them. If this had been the first Ridgid tool I had bought I don't think I would ever buy another one. Blade is hard to install straight, saw does not track straight and the top speed is way to slow.

It's a nice jig saw with some nice features. Easy blade changes. It cuts a bit slower than corded ones but, the battery lasts a long time in it. Took a little getting used to the safety switch and now I hardl think about it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mark returning it due to its performance
I am a contractor and I buy mostly Ridgid tools for the quality and value. This jig saw was bought to cut out sink holes in countertops. I received this tool a day early for delivery. (Great). I then took it to the job site unpackaged it, registered it then plug a battery to it and found a test piece of wood. Used my speed square to line up my cut and bam! It would not cut a straight line. Vered to the right. Check my blade (brand new Bosch) and tried again. No Luck, goes to the right every time, I have to hold the jig saw at an angle to follow a line and that is a chore.
Will return it soon.

This has been a good saw for me, the blade is quick and easy to change, it has an orbital feature, the base is easy to adjust. It seems to have plenty of power the first time I used it was to cut 2" pressure treated wood while repairing the bottom of a hot tub I had bought and it cut the 2" pressure treated wood no sweat, it's got plenty of power and is easy to guide around curves and bends, it works much better than my corded jigsaw I haven't even use my corded jigsaw since I got this one! Best of all I know this is $120 bare tool, well I was cleaning out an abandoned rental unit of my mothers and found it there and the exterior was in good shape, of course there was no battery with it but since I already owned Ridgid 18 volt tools and had the needed batteries for it that was not an issue for me. Got it home cleaned it up a little, got some blades for it and it runs like a champ, been running strong for over 2 years now! One of the luckiest finds I've ever had lol!

Have been wanting a jigsaw for quite a while, looking for a long-term tool that will put up with abuse and works hard. Had just purchased the RIDGID drill set, so having extra batteries, as well as being another cordless tool, was a major PLUS. Have not used the jigsaw yet, but have projects lined up and anxious to get started. Will add other comments later. Jigsaw is solid and well made. NO COMPLAINTS.

THIS SAW IS A GREAT VALUE AND YOU CAN DO ALOT OF WORK ON A SINGLE CHARGE. IT IS ALMOST READY TO USE OUT OF THE BOX AND COMES WITH ONE BLADE.
