When I first got the jigsaw, like many, I tried it out without actually reading the manual. And as many people have complained about is that the blade always falls out when cutting with it. The locking mechanism for the blade is actually a 2 step process. First you have to swivel the long pole at the back to the side, then lift the front lever and place the blade in. After I realized this I had no more problems with the blade falling out. I haven't used the tool that much yet but from what I've seen so far it works great! Would recommend for any handyman and I'm sure would compete with the contracting level tools.

Didn't chew the battery up too quickly despite the torque / power and I was able to do fast, quick cuts. It has a nice "blow" function so it's extremely easy to follow a cut-line. The blade is easy to change and is held in place quite well. Excellent for a DIY'er, though you may want to have a second battery available if you have a lot of cuts to make. Anything not yellow is metal, making the tool quite heavy.

I already have a corded Bosch jig saw but I was getting sick of always hunting for extension cords.

This thing works perfect. Actually I would say it's better than corded saws because you have more control over the speed and it stops as soon as you let go of the trigger. When cutting delicate materials or making very small precise cuts this extra speed control is very helpful.

I have yet to drain a battery using it and the flappy handle on the front to load the blades is much easier than the Bosch. I highly recommend it.

I have a few other 18V Dewalt tools and been wanting this for awhile. Got it at a great price and completely happy. Anyone complaining about the blade falling out is not putting it in properly.

I have a collection of Dewalt cordless tool. I find them so handy that I had to add this one to my collection. I am very pleased with this purchase. The price is right and the quality did not disappoint. I would recommend this tool to all my friends. I will be purchasing more Dewalt 18V Cordless tools. I received the tool within days of ordering. Thank you Amazon..

Powerful and quality make. Changing the blade is easy. Rather heavy, wich is a good thing to control the device and cut straight. Seems to drain the battery's energy fast - maybe because it is so powerful, but I prefere this by far to having a weaker tool that would last longer on its battery... Anyway, I have 3 batteries and 2 chargers, so what. Recommended.

Most definantly a tool that needs to be cordless.... and DeWalt nailed it with this one.... Heavy duty, very accurate and user friendly. I was on the fench about buying this tool but now that I have it, I'm not at all dissapointed and VERY glad I did. Just completed a big job and used this everyday, and it worked flawlessly. battery life is very acceptable and was a non issue. Only minor issue is that is is a bit heavy,,, which may be a good thing, solidly built which hopefully means it will last.... that being said, with a battery in it is nicely balanced.

For this price its a no brainer,,, buy this tool.

Amazon is the by far best value to buy tools,, got this for almost half the price at local hardware store,,, and shipping was super quick.

A very nice addition to the drill, driver and circular saw I already had. It's a bit heavier than a corded model, but it's also a very heavy-duty saw. Came in very handy cutting out holes in siding for windows in a little cabin I built in the woods........try that with a corded model. Even in the workshop, the cord to me has always been a pain for a tool that you use in many different directions without moving your feet. The cord was never long enough or if you added an extension cord you end up getting wrapped up in it trying to cut a circle in something! The air blower is a nice touch as well to keep your cut-line visible while cutting.

This is the second saw for me. The first one still functions fines except for too many drops have beaten up the base. This is an absolutely excellent tool, no reservation. If I had to pick one thing weak I would say the blower for chips could be stronger but I have yet to use a jig saw that was any better in that regard. Great tool.

i broke my black and decker plug in jig with lite use so decided on upgrading. this jig feels very sturdy and durable and not having to wrangle a cord around makes things a breeze. i havent done enough cutting to accurately estimate battery life but batteries last much longer than in my cordless circular saw
