Rated 1 out of 5 by from possibly the worst Jigsaw I have ever used I love Ryobi Products and own quite a few. I also have no problem with recommending anything by them but this jigsaw has been the worst expedience I have ever had. The safety doesn't work and the button is just stuck in the unit. No matter what I did (changed blades as well as using a guide rail) the unit will not cut straight the blade twists as soon as I start cutting even after it being check to make sure it was in proper. If I didn't lose my receipt I would return this product. Just a waste of 60$

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont Buy I bought this to Cut Subfloor and Laminate, The Wheel and the Pin that sit in front of the blade keeps coming off, basically unit is useless after that. I had to replace the Unit twice at the store to finish the job.... Homedepot did exchange it and I got another one, at the end of the laminate installation , the support wheel and pin broke out.. just spend a little extra and buy a better brand instead of wasting time and Exchanging/returning..... If your cutting 2 pieces, u will have no problem, but if finishing ur personal home basement, u have issues

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compact jig saw. Good product. Problem it only comes with 1 sew blade. So best to order a multi saw package to go with it. Instructions are not clear enough on inserting and removing the saw blades. Instructions should be more clear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Purchase Terrible purchase! This saw is basically useless for cutting anything that needs to be done in a straight line, the built in saw guide moves freely side to side on thick material or thin material and you can never cut a straight line. Due to Covid my local Home Depot is not taking returns but it will be going back for a refund! Will definitely think twice about buying any Ryobi products again.

Is this jigsaw capable of cutting through 2x4 material? Would I need a different blade and if so is there one that is compatible with this saw that could get the job done? Thank you.

Asked by: Yazz
This will cut a 2x4... but won’t be super straight or flush compared to circular saw
