Overview

Editor's Review: Tool Test: Top-Handle Jigsaws

review date: July 14, 2011

The Festool is compact, powerful, well balanced, and solidly built. The lightest jigsaw, it is small like the Makita and is able to fit into tighter spaces than the others. The included zeroclearance splinter guard works well without completely blocking the sightline. The trigger-lock button is easy to use with one hand— almost too easy, in fact. I kept accidentally pushing it in during normal use. This tool has the longest cord—more than 13 ft.—and comes in a beefy case with molded storage for the saw and a range of blades and accessories. The saw’s vacuum capabilities are extraordinary. The suction ports are at the inside front corners of the baseplate, so dust is picked up in front of the blade, where it counts the most.
