Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jigsaw [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this Jigsaw for a few different projects and it has performed perfectly on all of them. The variable speed and oscillation settings allow the user to dial in the perfect settings for any material. Have lent this Jigsaw to others and most have commented that it is a great tool. Would recommend to others.

How does this fare with rip cuts? I'm cutting 3/4 Red Oak and I have to force the 4.5 Amp jig saw I have currently to cut parallel to the grain of the wood
Asked by: bob
My last saw was 3.5 Amps and struggled with any hardwoods. This thing is a beast with 7.2 amps. Plus it has adjustable oscillating settings that can make it cut super aggressively.

LED light, double roller alignment of blade and more powerful motor for $50 more over the tool lifetime - sensible to upgrade.
