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.
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.
I Wish I bought this years ago. Best jigsaw I have owned. Bought with the battery and charger and jigsaw was free. I love this jigsaw
I used this tool to install an over the oven microwave exhaust through the cabinet it was attached to. Used it to cut the bottom of the cabinet for the microwave exhaust to pass through and also a 6 inch hole for the duct work to pass through the top of the cabinet. Also used it to exit the exhaust through the soffit of the house. It worked great. Plenty of power but very accurate cutting. I love these DeWalt tools.
