18V ONE+™ brushless jig saw
18V ONE+™ brushless jig saw is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 198.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1929 Farmhouse I rehabbed by grandfathers 1929 farmhouse on 2/3 of an acre. Ok, I’m 56 years old woman and manage a police Division. Ryobi tools were instrumental in my project. I gutted the house and completely rebuilt it. New kitchen, bathroom, subfloors, electrical, water lines... the whole thing. I bought the combo back which included the jigsaw in which I cut plywood for the subfloors. I love that all the tools are cordless. Makes a big task more manageable.Thank you Ryobi, I couldn’t have done it without you. I have bought many more tools, pole chainsaw, edger trimmer, tire inflated, sander, vibrating sander,18 gauge nail gun and vacuum. By the way the nail gun rocks. Big chainsaw in my future. Have 3 trees to cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Of all the jigsaws I've had this one's the best I've owned a few jig saws in my time, & many have been ryobi, in fact I have a plug in one in my storage space that I rarely use because it is so bad. This Ryobi brushless jig saw is by fat the one I like the most. The base is secure & doesn't tilt unless you want it to, (like my plug in one) the power is steady & adjustable. It's by far the most powerful jigsaw I've had too. I have the Ryobi multi tool & a Rigid jig attachment, & that was my go to jigsaw, but after using the brushless jigsaw I don't ever use it anymore. Completely happy with this tool for once in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding saw I do a lot of scroll cutting with a jigsaw mostly on full sheets of plywood. My old saw was corded and I would have to continuously stop cutting to move the cord out of the way. This saw has made cutting fun again. The saw has a light, which I wish would shine closer to the blade and my path, but it is a great feature. The saw stops instantly when the trigger is released whereas my old saw would wind down to a stop. The other nice feature is the blade holder which, once the blade is release it ejects out so no more grabbing a hot blade to remove it from the chuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tool? I got my new brushless jig saw just in time to build a deck and wow what an amazing tool! Was a breeze to clean up cuts done by my brushless ryobi circular saw when cutting out stairs for the deck. I was amazed at the power behind it and how well it worked. It didn’t hesitate on any material I’ve used it on including cutting some bar steel for another project (with proper metal blade of course!) the convince of a jigsaw without a cord is amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a cordless jigsaw. Go brushless. You won’t regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfactory if not great. I've gotten tired of being tied to the cord with my last jigsaw so I opted to Ryobi's 18V ONE+ Brushless Jigsaw. I have other Ryobi cordless tools, so an advantage is that I am able to use the batteries I already have. My first project was cutting several squares in 1/2' Plywood. I was able to make perfectly straight cuts without a guide. The Ryobi Jigsaw cut straight and smooth. The Ryobi is also relatively quiet. I wish it came with more than a single blade, but it was easy enough to run to the hardware store for blades to cut metal, etc...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great until saw bar fell to pieces I loved this saw but after 8 months, with not much use, the saw bar assembly has fallen to pieces. Pretty useless now. Have to try to get warranty sorted out now as was imported. Very disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw, good control, powerful and capable I got this brushless jig saw as part of deal on Black Friday and I have to say it’s been great. It has plenty of power and capability. The brushless Motor is great and the variable speed is great although it takes some getting used to as the trigger is not variable speed but rather a separate switch which controls the speed. Overall though this saw is great and I have had many uses for it and it’s the perfect addition to any collection, especially for the price you can’t beat this deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power I got this jigsaw as a free tool with the brushless 3 piece set winter of 2018. I have not had any issues cutting through anything. The first thing I cut with it was a workbench in my garage. I have a one car garage and wanted a fridge for our in the garage. So I had to cut a spot out in the workbench. I don't know what kind of wood it was, you can see it in the picture, but it was definitely a hardwood like oak or maple. Didn't have any problem cutting through it. The only issue I ran into is there's about an inch gap between the blade and the end of the tool. So I couldn't actually cut all the way to the wall. Didn't own anything else that could so I ended up just using the hammer to break the last little bit. I think that's a standard design for the jigsaw so nothing really wrong with it, just my inexperience not realizing that. I've also used the jigsaw for cutting down branches to put out with the garbage collection. It's super easy to handle. I used the jigsaw to cut all the little branches off of the bigger piece and then cut down the bigger pieces with my circular saw. The jig saw just sliced through like butter. I could run it all the way along the side of the branch and it just cut through everything in it's way. With the brushless and the HP battery it definitely has enough power to get the job done.
