#2 Easy to change the blades

What people say about the product:

I regularly cut 2mm sheet metal. Always used a mains powered unit. This jigsaw not only manages the job but does it better than my mud range 240v jigsaw. Very impressed”

And another:

Fast, powerful, comfortable to use, easy quick blade change, good battery life, fast charge, square cutting, air blower to clean cut for good vision. You couldn’t want much more, except perhaps a light.”

And another:

There is very little I can say about this great jigsaw that hasn’t been said already. It’s very robust and feels very solid on the wood. It goes through 40mm laminated worktop like a knife through butter with very little kick, unlike a cheaper make. I ran it for 2 days with a lot of cutting on one battery. For a tradesman and really keen DIY’er, this is clearly a must.”
