This little saw has a lot of features. The shoe angle adjustment locks works well. It has a dust blower function you can disable that directs air down at the blade, no more constant blowing while cutting to see where you are going. The motor is powerful, much more than my corded ones even, it's awesome. The variable speed trigger is great also, much nicer than it being a separate setting that you need to stop and adjust in my experience. The only thing I find it lacking is a light - DeWalt is pretty good about LED lighting on their tools, and this one could use it. Not sure why they would have omitted this on a jigsaw as it's pretty important for detail work.
I've had this saw for a couple years and I must say it's great. It surprised me! It has the power of a corded saw without the leash! It's full of features I really enjoy like the blower near the blade! All around a solid buy! Definitely buy again! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
This tool is great, works incredibly well. Love the blade angle adjustment
Bought it a while back and have used it many times. The jig saw performs well when cutting sheet metal from 24 to 16 gauge steel, various types of woods, and various wood thickness. One of my best purchases.
