If you are looking for a versatile power tool that will be actually used and enjoyed for years to come by the DIYer in your life, give the gift of a WORX Nitro 20 Volt Brushless Jigsaw. This power tool has more uses than most! Cut through wood, PVC pipe, plastic, fiberglass, drywall, aluminum, copper, thin steel and more! Every homeowner and DIYer needs this powerful, portable tool for countless applications and projects.
This variable-speed jigsaw has a no-load speed of 0-3500 strokes-per-minute (spm) with a blade stroke length of 1 in. The saw’s cutting depth is 4-23/32 in. in wood, 25/64 in. in steel and 2 in. in PVC. The jigsaw’s trigger-activated LED light helps illuminate the cutting area.
The Nitro jigsaw includes a four-position, orbital action control lever. Increasing the level of orbital blade action creates a faster, more aggressive cut. Generally, high orbital action (setting 3) should be used for cutting soft materials and less orbital action (settings 1 and 2) is required for harder materials. No orbital action (0) is preferred for finer cutting in thin work pieces and metal.
Preparing to make bevel cuts from 0 to 45°, left or right, is quick and easy, using the saw’s tool-free bevel base adjustment lever. The sturdy base plate provides a large contact surface area for stability and control. The jigsaw also is capable of making plunge cuts without having to drill a hole.
It is lightweight at only 5.2lbs making it great for men and women to use as well as making it highly maneuverable. You can twist and turn the saw to cut curves and shapes – all without a cord getting in the way.
Another thing that I like about this WORX Nitro 20 Volt Brushless Jigsaw is the long-lasting battery. Nothing is more annoying than getting only 1/2 way through a project because the battery dies! The jigsaw is powered by a Nitro brushless motor that runs 50% LOGNER with 25% more power compared to traditional brushed motors. You’ve gotta love that! Plus, the motor is powered by a 20V 2.5 Ah MAX lithium Power Share battery that has a charge level indicator that makes it easy to always know how much battery you have left. And if you run out, the power share batteries are compatible with more than 75 WORX 20V, 40V and 80V lawn and garden, DIY and lifestyle products for cost savings and convenience
Honestly, you can’t give write out a honey-to-do list without giving him the right tools – that being said, I know personally that women can also do amazing DIY projects and this is just as wonderful of a gift for women. 🙂
Included with the WORX Nitro 20V Brushless Jigsaw is a 20V 2.5Ah Power Share battery, 2-amp 2-hr. charger, one wood-cutting blade, vacuum adapter and carry bag. The saw is covered by the WORX three-year limited warranty.
