Keyless chuck enables fast blade changes. Less powerful 9-amp motor allows better control/cutting precision. Cuts old wood fences, metal fence posts, and more with ease. Doesn’t bog down after hours of use.
Trigger can be easily unlocked. Tool grows hot after continuous use. Some users are stymied by the blade-changing process.
Fairly lightweight and easy to control. Users can see cutting guides from either side of the saw. Cuts most materials without splintering. Brake is a welcomed safety feature. Blades are easy to swap out.
Keyed chuck adds time to blade changes, and key could get lost. Doesn’t fit well in its included case.
Durable, precisely aligned saw offers years of performance. Excellent dust control and collection, esp. when paired w/a wet-dry vac. Easy to use for both straight and angled cuts.
Cutting track can slip if dust accumulates underneath. Blade can scorch certain types of wood, and saw struggles through hardwoods. Score lever knob falls off easily. Power cord is fairly short.
3.9-amp motor is about half the power of other saws but makes for a lighter, easier-to-handle jig saw. Stays on course. Runs smoothly and quietly. Included case is sturdy.
Keyed chuck slows blade changes, though some users find it a more secure option. Bevel lock is not exact.
Perfectly square, burr-free cuts w/no “wandering” or deflection by the blade. Parts remain cool to the touch. Work table is sturdy. Blade stays sharp through multiple cuts.
Chip collector tray doesn’t catch everything. Reports of saw blade not properly centered, cutting into the deck. Chain hold down should be redesigned, users feel.
