Jigsaw Options and Details
The DeWalt DCS331L1 20V Max Li-Lon Jigsaw Kit (3.0 Ah) includes a 20V MAX Li-Ion 3.0 Ah battery pack, one fast charger, a jig saw blade, and a kit box. Although the kit for this DeWalt jigsaw comes with just one universal type jigsaw blade made specifically for wood, there are other styles of blades you can purchase, such as the bayonet style blade for laminate, the metal saw blade for metal, or the tile saw blade for tile, all of which can be purchased separately and attached when needed. When it is time to make that blade change, you’ll find that making blade changes will be no problem, as this DeWalt jigsaw has an all-metal lever-action keyless blade change, which allows for the easiest, and most hassle free blade change ever. If your interested in making bevel cuts an all-metal keyless shoe bevel is the way to go, and is available with detents at 0°, 15°, 30° and 45° bevel, providing you versatility. Also, included in the Jigsaw DCS331L1 design is a 4-position orbital action which delivers superb control of the jigsaws cut quality and run speed. Plus, another sweet addition for this jigsaw is the adjustable dust blower which aids the operator in keeping the “line of cut” clear of chips and debris while your cutting. A variable speed of 0-3,000 rpms is present for superior cut versatility in a multitude of materials and job applications. Lastly for those who care about the grip on your tools, DeWalt has added an anti-slip comfort grip for increased comfort and control.
