18V ONE+™ Orbital Jig Saw
18V ONE+™ Orbital Jig Saw is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 306.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool! Been using Ryobi drill (blue version) for about 10yrs straight. Recently Home Depot had a sale in which you buy 2 battery with charger combo and get a free tool. Bought the combo online for store pickup and sure did get my hammer drill and with that purchase I also got a glue gun at a discount price. A week later did the same purchase 2 battery with charger combo this time for the free cordless jig saw. Since my purchases, I've been super satisfied. I definitely recommend Ryobi products. Green aesthetics looks nice and stands out. Have a few more Ryobi tools to purchase for the collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy work. You gotta have a jig saw if you do any wood working or handy work. Got this one and there was a bit of a learning curve for me. I always had cords and they are a bit smaller but really like this one. Only draw back is it was kinda hard to find blades to fit it properly. I used a different maker blade and then found a variety pack at local hardware store that work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLANT BUY I HAD A PROJECT I HAD TO BORROW A JIG SAW TO DO. THE JIG SAW WAS 50 YEARS OLD & I HAD TO LEARN HOW TO USE. IT WAS NOT FUN. I NEW I HAD TO BUY A NEW ONE SO I LOOKED TO SEE IF RYOBI HAD A BATTERY OPERATED ONE THAT I COULD USE WITH MY EXISTING BATTERIES & THEY DID. THE BEST PURCHASE. THE BLADE EXCHANGE IS THE MOST SIMPLISTIC I HAVE EVER SEEN - CHANGE A BLADE IN LESS THAN A MINUTE. THE BLADE GUIDE ON THIS PRODUCT PROTECTS FROM BLADE BREAKAGE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! The first one I bought the blade kept popping out but i took it back to Home Depot the same day and they exchanged it with no problems.... took the second one home and had no problems getting my kids bunk bed built... only telling you about the blade because i thought I was doing something wrong in case others have an issue

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way better than my old Jig saw Bought this to replace my old B/D jig saw because the blades kept coming off (U shank). Was reading the reviews on this and decided to take a chance on purchasing it. Several reviews stated the blade kept coming of. So I bought it. Used it to and never did I experience the blade coming off. I did experience the blade leaning to the left... a lot... but from watching videos and reading views of other jig saws this seems to be the norm. Some deflection will occur. I borrowed a friends jig saw just to see if the deflection was the same or worse. My friends took deflected but wasn’t as bad as my jig saw. Overall I’m satisfied with the saw, good tool for the weekend DIY’er and a good bang for the buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and durable saw I purchased this saw with the intent of using it mostly in making wooden home decor. I needed something that could precisely cut thorough layered wood up to an inch thick. This saw did not disappoint. The saw handles various woods with ease, and the quick easy blade changes make this a pleasure to use. The other strong positive about this tool is how light weight and maneuverable it is. I would recommend this product to the DIY home owner and to the professional. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Jig Saw in my shop! I wanted a new jig saw, as my old corded one was a bit hefty for my immediate needs. When I saw an opportunity to get a free Ryobi 18 volt orbital jig saw with the purchase of two batteries and a quick charger, I got right over to The Home Depot and picked them up! I like that this saw sits upright and it fits nicely in my old saw's hard case. The saw works well, cuts fast and is easy to maneuver. I would definitely recommend this saw!
