Why would i buy this attachment over buying a separate cordless jig saw (corded or cordless)

The Ridgid corded and cordless jig saws are about $100. The Ryobi Lime Green jig saw is about $60. It just seems like the separate tool would be better than this attachment. I currently own a set of Ridgid products and a job max. I also have lithium drill Ryobi set. So batteries are not the issue. I just want the better product that will give me the best results at a sub $100 price point. I am not a pro.

Answer: 
Cutting 3/4" plywood with the attachment is a lot of work. A corded saw performs much better.
But if you typically work with thinner materials and lots of curves, the attachment is a very valuable tool. I prefer it because the JobMax handle is small and very easy to control. It's also very comfortable to work with for long periods of time. I like its lower profile too.

It does the job well without requiring a separate jig saw, plus you have the main body for other very well designed attachments.

I love the one+ system to minimize the number of full-size tools to keep track of and the batteries are "the bomb" as far as I'm concerned.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID.
The JobMax jigsaw attachment head would be bought in order to add that cutting capability to your JobMax multi-tool system. Whether or not to buy that attachment verses a standard jigsaw, would be something the you would need to decide on based on the items and capabilities you want in your tool collection.
Regards,
RIDGID

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool I got this for small jobs to be portable and still do a professional job and coupled with the other interchangeable heads it is awesome. Dont expect tge strength of a stand alone tool and expect to go a little slower it shouldn't be put in a bind but you can carry six different tools to a job with the weight of about two skill saws. The jig saw works extremely well and had a quick change blade system that makes it fast and easy to use any blade you need and change in between parts of your job like metal cutting to paneling and then large wood in only seconds I have had to cut 2x4 metal pipe and moulding and its worked without any problems. I have read before buying that the 12v system is a little underpowered but I can't testify to that. July 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Thought it was maybe not going to be as good as a actual jigsaw but am very impressed! You won't be disappointed August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great attachment! Annoying safety lock, but it can be easily defeated! This is a great attachment with one drawback. The safety lock is spring loaded and difficult to engage to begin cutting. I came up with a simple solution: I drilled a tiny hole through the plastic slider lock and ran some thin wire through it. I pulled it tight so the lock was engaged to the side and secured the wire to the plastic of the vent slot. Works like a charm! I was very frustrated at first, but now it's great! We've been using this tool for our bathroom remodel and it's been fantastic. Even my husband is impressed with it! I took off one star for the difficult safety lock. . . February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this attachment This attachment is great and gets used all the time. Cuts cleanly and with ease. I have the newer version (all gray) without the spring loaded safety switch so I haven't had that issue as mentioned earlier. I have big hands so have ease using it with one hand. I haven't had any issues with the blade locking tab as mentioned earlier. The only draw back would be you can't angle the blade. This hasn't mattered to me but maybe important to someone else to think about. February 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Saws Through Wood, What Else Would It Do? There's nothing really astounding to say about the jigsaw attachment, it does what it's meant to do just like any other jigsaw. I will say that it takes some getting used to with the way it handles. It's a little differently snapped than a typical jigsaw so it feel sort of bulky. Once you're used to it though there isn't much to complain about. Would I recomend it? Yes, but only if you either already have or are wanting to get into the JobMax tool lineup. For me I already had the base for the JobMax series so it was a no brainer, glad I bought it. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good, not great I have many Ridgid tools which are top level in terms of durability and function. The JobMax is a small step below this level. The balance, power, versatility and function of the jig saw head is quite good but not great. Mine is new (≈9/2015) and I have not noted the the safety switch issue that others have; it is on or off and stays in that position. Mine is the corded unit and it does not seem to lack power for an appropriate jig saw purpose. Where this tool really shines is having several good power tools in one small, light tool bag. The cat's meow when traveling in a small truck camper. December 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool...BUT Love the attachment, does what it needs to do and does it well. HOWEVER!!!....... The Bi-Directional Lock Out Lever is such a pain!!. The idea is rediculous and not user friendly. Can't think of any other tool that requires two hands to start it up. Even Ridgid's circular saw (I own one), doesn't have a secondary button to start the tool. I jammed the lever with a small piece of wood. Everytime I use it I shake my head at how the geniouse that came up with this must feel when reading about this idea. Love the whole JobMax line up, such a shame it comes with such foolish design. I guess I would recommend this tool, in the same sentence with a joke/warning of the two hand operation required. June 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not well suited for battery powered jobmax handle. The jigsaw consumes so much power that it basically runs the battery down ~three times faster than I can charge a 18v battery. Batteries are <12 old with light use. Nifty concept and all but I returned it and bought a dedicated (corded) jigsaw (for only ~$10 more than this attachment.) It did seem to work fine otherwise., It is Just not well matched with a cordless device. Ridgid really should somehow recommend this attachment be use with the corded handle only or risk more dissatisfied customers. August 31, 2015
