Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hpiguy Quality Jig Saw with nice features and power
I bought this jig saw to begin working on numerous outdoor decoration items I want to build from plans.
Whether cutting 3/4 treated plywood or a quick angle cut on a 2x4, it works great. It does not bog down even on tight curves, the motor is quite strong.
It has a nice heavy duty feel in the hand and the variable speed and stroke is a welcome feature. The laser line is also nice to have when following long lines in a sheet of plywood to cut patterns.
Blade changes take seconds with the quick release feature.
It took me a while to decide on a new jig saw and I'm glad I grabbed this one. It should give me many years of service.

Great saw though when cutting the blade tends to bend therefore not producing an even cut. I notched a 2x4 and found that at close to the saw base was accurate but down the blade produced a slanted cut. I was using expensive blades also so was not the blade. I previously owned a saw like this (older model) and never had this problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dugndeep Just what I was looking for
I'm glad I bought this jigsaw.I was going to pay a little more and get a really good one but am glad I didn't now because you can't beat this jigsaw for the price & quality.I'm just a home DIY'er and aren't going to be using this saw everyday but I did want one that would cut straight and fast when I did need it.I think this one is going to work out just fine.As for cross-cutting 2 by lumber,I was very impressed with the orbital setting which allows it to cut very quickly and accurately.The laser is alright also but is not the main reason I bought this saw,I would have rather have had an LED light instead of the laser but the laser works out alright on lining up on your cut line.This saw never bogged down once on cross-cutting a 2 by 10 piece of pine.I also tried it cutting a piece of 3/4" treated plywood which didn't phase it either.All in all,very happy with this saw so far,especially the orbital feature,makes a big difference in the speed of the cut.I wish I had bought a saw like this years ago,never knew what I was missing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJ36 This product is a good tool.
I had a Skil jigsaw that lasted me over thirty years. Finally the cord gave out. I purchased the 6A Variable speed jigsaw with the laser to do small jobs around my house. It seems to work very well and hopefully will last as long as the last one.
