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.

Weak drive gear
My first one failed with a broken drive gear, the diagonally toothed one. It broke under normal use. The saw was used moderately, by me, a homeowner. I bought a second...Read complete review
My first one failed with a broken drive gear, the diagonally toothed one. It broke under normal use. The saw was used moderately, by me, a homeowner. I bought a second one. It also failed in exactly the same way. This tool is NOT recommended.

Bosch power tools

Comments about Bosch Tools 7.2A Top-Handle Jig Saw Kit:
I have bought several tools of Bosch over the years. Router, Jigsaw, planer, grinder to name a few. I have encountered only one problem in that time and it was quickly solved to my satisfaction. I particularly would rate my router 1617EVSPK as tops.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I should have bought this jigsaw long before now. It is the best jigsaw that I have ever used. The only problem that I have encountered is the led light is hard to turn off and on.
Best jigsaw ever!
from Boston, MA, United States
I bought this jigsaw 6 months ago and it's the best one I've ever used. It's very accurate and square with the cuts it makes. Also the LED Light helps light your work. it's great for coping alot of trim.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great features and wonderful control
from Charlotte, NC
There are three main features I like to most; the first is speed control for the cutting blade; the second is the work lights, and the third is the tool-less blade change ability. These features combined with the adjustable blade orbit and the vacuum attachment make this jigsaw the best I have ever used.
Sent two for repair for bad switch
from New Orleans, LA, United States
Great tool, but switch went out, sent both back in pieces, wanted almost as much s a new one to repair. Still bought new ones. Still a great tool, not happy with repair cost.
Still a huge Bosch fan because of this Jig Saw
from Portland, Oregon, United States
I purchased one of the originals. Still have it, it still works great. Been banged around a little and the precision mechanical parts are like the day I first bought it. I would buy more Bosch tools. It is the first choice for me as I personally feel like they are the best quality

Very smooth opertion
from Purling ny
Excellent tool very easy to use and vibration free and long electric cord
I have two of your jig saws that I bought several years ago. They are still working fine. The two models that I have is the 1587AVS and 1590DVS. The latter is similar to the JS572EL. I had a craftsman U-shank jigsaw, which I had and still have for about 50 years. The reason I bought the Bosch was for the blades. When I saw the "Progressor" blades, I had to buy the saw. No regrets. I first had the 1587 but later got the 1590 because of the quick change blade system. The only negative thing about the 1590 is the wire blade guide, which obscures the cutting area. Other than that, no problems. I like the extra long cord on the 1590.
Best I've ever owned!
I have owned many different brands of jig saws but without a doubt this one is the best! Great quality and features.
