This jigsaw works ok, has ample power to cut through 3/4" stock with ease. The blade latch is a little odd but once you grt used to it, it works ok. I have not run it long enough to see how long the battery lasts.

Will it cut aluminum or steel sheet?

Asked by: Trashman
It will perform like a normal jigsaw with the correct blade. I used mine to cut barn metal for a chicken run.

How does this jig saw compare to the brushless Octane jig saw?

Asked by: Sandman1221
The first time I tried using it was for about 30 minutes. The Rigid cordless jigsaw couldn't follow a straight line whether curved or straight. I decided to go back to the Home Depot and buy De Walt's best electric jigsaw that they had. I haven't had a problem since. Don't waste haste and buy this Rigid cordless jigsaw. Unless! You don't care about following your design per the layouts.

Lifetime Warranty,difficult to do!

The last time I purchased a cordless drill from Home Depot, I tried endlessly for hours to fill out all information requested for my lifetime warranty, on line. Just when it looked like it worked, the next day I got an E-mail stating that I got some information wrong, and it did not go through. I was not happy. I tried it again and again and it would not work. I got frustrated and quit doing it. I know that I am an average person, and I have done many of these type of warranties before. My question is why do you make it so difficult to get a lifetime warranty? I have many Craftsman tools and it has NEVER been difficult to fill out warranty information needed for my life time tools.So all I have to say to any buyer is beware!!
Asked by: Pete
Considering that Craftsman doesn't have a lifetime warranty on any of their power tools, and there's no need to register the hand tools for their warranty, I'd have to say this is more of an I.Q. problem. It does require reading instructions, and recording the tool numbers correctly, so if that requires "hours" for you to accomplish, there's another issue here other than it being "so difficult to get a lifetime warranty".... I have purchased dozens of Ridgid tools over the last 10+ years and haven't had an issue getting my LSA on any of them. They are an awesome tool, and I've had several batteries replaced under warranty as well as tool repairs covered, which has saved me a lot of money over the years and has protected my investment in the tools.

Does this tool accept both "T" and "U" shank type blades?

Asked by: Saniman312
Yes this tool I believe uses both styles of blades and is quit comfortable and capable tool. I didn't like that it wasn't available in all stores so check that . I had to order it online.

Can it work with ridgid R840086 2.0 AM/h battery?

Asked by: Kimobe
Yes, the jig saw works just fine with the 2.0 AM/h battery. You just have to charge the battery more often than with the 4.0 AM/h and larger batteries.

What would be the difference between this and the orbital jigsaw?

Asked by: Rob
The R8831 is an orbital jig saw. This is the only cordless Ridgid jig saw that I see on the site. Hope this helps.
