An excellent product, heavy but well constructed and easy to use. Easy to get replacement blades. I would certainly recommend this product.
Excellent product,very good value for money,but my black & decker blades would not fit this make. It requires t blades which are not listed in instructions. There is only one blade supplied,so had to research the net to identify blade types.
Nice piece of equipment, better than expected.

- Einhell Jigsaw
Firstly, i received this jigsaw almost before i ordered it, the delivery was so fast. It certainly cut a swathe through the traffic to get to me. Secondly, this is a very good looking piece of kit. It is very comfortable to hold, which is important to me as i have arthritis in my hands. Thirdly, this was to replace a now dead jigsaw which i thought was very good – this one is better. Although this comes with one blade, i decided to use the one from the old jigsaw, which had been heavily used. Regardless of speed selected, this cut through wood like a hot knife through butter (due no doubt to the 800watt motor, much higher than most other saws). There was no catching and no need to apply undue pressure, just a gentle guiding. I particularly like the ‘no-tool’ blade change, although be careful when releasing the old blade, it tends to come flying out like a javelin from jessica ennis’ hand.
Good product value for money. Im happyi would recommend it to others. I think it is a nice product.

Excellent product,powerful and fairly easy to use although i have not attempted to cut metal or plastic yet and still wonder what ‘pendulum action’ means. I am probably supposed to know. No explanation in the manual. Comes with ‘one’ unspecified blade, not very generous from einhell. A plastic storage box would have been useful too.
A reliable , easy to handle tool. First time i have had variable speed facility which makes operating much easier.
Ordered yesterday arrived today great service – label on product says designed and manufactured by german engineers. So i guess they must have shipped a bunch of engineers and production people from germany to china – the product label says made in prc.
This jigsaw was a little heavier than i thought the quick change blade system is a bonus much quicker and easier than using an allen key very useful tool for any handyman.
Great tool for the price, not quite as light or smooth as one costing five times the price but definitely worth every penny. Probably wouldn’t cope with industrial daily use but perfect for diy.
Only used a couple of times so far but seems well made and does the job.
Ok, so i haven’t used this on many jobs yet but i have tested it on some scraps. Easy to change blades etc and on full speed this thing is really powerful. I did notice that on the lowest speed, it seems as if the motor is struggling a little but nothing to worry about. I also like the fact it’s a pendulum fitting which gives you more options depending on cuts needed. As with most jigsaws, i wouldn;t trust the accuracy of the angle cuts, they’re probably not too far away but if you’re needing a true 45 degree cut then i’d use a mitre or table saw. Perfect for what i need though. Would recommend, really solid and looks very durable.
The product is good and does the job. I have a vax vaccum cleaner which i attached while cutting out my wood to avoid dust messing up things but inspite of the powerful vaccum cleaner it doesn’t have proper suction created in the right area there by leading to dust falling off around. I had taken up the bosch t-shank blades (as this one supported t-shank blades) but have failed to get them completely into the tool holder. So currently living with the one that comes in default with this tool.
Y works a treat, would have been nice if there had been a dust bag with it.
This machine was a replacement for an excelnt bosh until i cut thro. Some steel wit a wood blade by mistake. Very pleased with this jigsaw.
This jigsaw is a powerful machine that is suitable for everything i do in diiy. It is good value for money too.
It looks well made but the blade doesn’t cut straight and veers away if not well controlled.
The jigsaw by its self looks to be quite good quality. The only problems i have had is that the parallel guide was broken on receipt-i contacted the manufacturer who sent me a replacement after 4weeks. Unfortunately this item is also broken(the two spot welds holding the two parts together have failed). Obviously a manufacturing fault. I haven’t bothered to seek a replacement.
