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

Why the Variable speed is 600-3000 SPM? Does the speed goes below 600?

Asked by: oskkar
Thank you Ryobi for the helpful answer. Instead of calling the number provided it was easier / faster for me to zip to my local HD and buy the Jigsaw. Its true the speed can be set to start from zero and in addition its an excellent jigsaw with many features and nice looking too.
