Overview

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

review date: July 14, 2011

This jigsaw has only one thing on its mind: power. It rivals, if not surpasses, the higher-amp Bosch and Milwaukee models for sheer aggressiveness of cut. When orbital action was off, cuts were still clean and quick, and each of the four levels of orbital action increased its speed and vigor. The blade-guide roller is low on the body, making the Metabo a champ at straight cuts and tight circles. The blade is close to the front of the saw, which, in addition to allowing the saw to get close into corners, gives a clear, unobstructed view of the cutline. Moreover, the foot plate can be adjusted backward so that the blade is flush with the front of the plate, giving the saw better maneuverability in restricted spaces.
