28 Nov A 20V Brushless Cordless Jigsaw from Worx
The new Nitro jigsaw (item WX542L, on sale for $127.99 with a 2.5 Ah battery, regular price $159.99) has a high-efficiency brushless motor that the company says delivers 25% more power, 50% more run time, and 10% longer tool life than similar tools with brushed motors. It has a 4-position orbital action that delivers precise control, and the base tilts 0-45 degrees left or right, tool-free (there’s a lever that locks and unlocks it). The variable speed trigger offers a no-load speed of 0 to 3,500 SPM (strokes per minute), which can help reduce chipping. The stroke length is 1” and the maximum depth of cut in wood is 4-23/32”. A tool-free blade clamp accepts most T-shank blades from other brands. The handle has Gripzone™ micro-texture, and the saw comes with the battery (WA3577), a quick charger (WA3881), a wood cutting blade, a vacuum adapter, and a carrying case. The tool weighs 4.2 lbs. The battery powers more than seventy-five 20V, 40V, and 80V lifestyle, garden, and power tools in the Power Share family.
