Amazing jigsaw
I had originally bought a Milwaukee jigsaw (at around the same price point), because it had received a better review. It served me well, but after two years, it failed in a number of ways. Rather than getting it fixed and waiting two weeks for repairs (I use my jigsaw a lot), I decided to buy a Bosch. Even though the Milwaukee was good, this one is far better. Using it is awesome. From day one of use, I've had no doubts. I wasn't sure I'd like the barrel body (the Milwaukee had a D handle), but after only a few weeks I doubt I'd go back. It'll be interesting to see how this one is in two years, but I suspect it will still be going strong. It just feels solid and well made. Either way, when it's time to replace it, I'll probably end up with another Bosch.

A little disappointed
This barrel model was a replacement of an older top handle Bosch saw which I've used for years. The much easier blade change was the primary reason for the purchase, and I had thought the barrel design might be easier to use. The blade change device is fantastic, but I've found the barrel design harder to use. It's also louder (more amps? and the body (which is where you obviously hold it) gets very warm (hot) with any extended use. In hindsight, I'd go for the top handle if I had to do it over again.

Great Saw
I have purchased 4 of these saws, one for myself and others for gifts. I am 85 and still sawing. This is the best jig saw I have ever owned. Easy blade change, very versatile & accurate and powerful.

Just what I Needed
When I received this saw I thought it was too heavy. But it has turned out to be very easy to control. I cut intricate patterns for my art and I am very pleased with the results.

low vibration
This is a quality tool with more than adequate power for the advanced DIY'er. I particularly like the low vibration. However, it may be less controllable for those with smaller hands as the barrel grip is quite wide.

Very easy to make straight and curved cuts. Very smooth operation and I like the different grip over a standard jig saw

I bought this 3 months ago to do the sink and gas cooktop cutouts for a countertop. Everything worked the way it should. No miss cuts and very controllable.

Best jig saw I have ever had, I have had 5 others. Barrel grip with low center of gravity makes control easy. I have large hands and the fits well and trigger is located well.

Does this come with a hard or soft case?
Taylor on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The JS470EB includes a hard plastic case
Js470. Any advantage of the D handle versus Barrel grip? The $25.00 price cut does not show at checkout, any suggestions?
chevy on Dec 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Biggest advantage is in keeping the tool's foot plate flat, and by having your hand closer to the blade/motor, you have better control and more tactile feedback.

Lack of handle also makes tool somewhat more nimble, and lack of big ole' handle could let you get the tool in tight spots where the "D" couldnt go!!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
