I have had this model for some time and where I used to dread using a jigsaw with all the wander and breakage of blades, this jigsaw is great. With the newer bosch jigsaw blades it cut so smooth you alomost don't need to sand.

Outstanding...features, quality, and function!
Bosch raised the bar with this jig saw....it has everything from a 7.2 Amp constant speed motor....to switchable LED lights that let you actually see where you are cutting... to self centering twin roller blade guides that keep the blade square to the cut.
The combination of visibility, power, and speed control put this tool in a class by itself.

I had an old, much less powerful jigsaw. I did not realize how underpowered my old one was until I cut oak with this one. I love the ease of these blades and the power has been totally sufficient. I like having it corded (a nice long cord) because the tool is much lighter.

For years I had a Bosch jig saw, it was the best and easiest to work with., but when it broke I lost my mind. I looked and looked and did all the research on all the other manufactures. there is no other jig saw with the flexibility and comparability. I did the only thing I could and buy the Bosch JS572EL. I am glad I made the right choice. I know that I will not have to make this choice again.
