I am using Bosch T101B blades, which I had previously used and are very sturdy - this has improved the bending of the blade when doing curves. My other installation team, doing roughly the same job but with DW brushless cordless tools similarly found that their cordless tools were struggling a bit with the material, and so switched to corded kit as well.

The DJV180Z also has a soft start feature that prevents the blade from binding when the saw is first turned on.Whether you're a professional tradesperson or a DIY enthusiast, this exceptional tool will elevate your woodworking projects to new heights. Features: Because of the changable blades, Jigsaws can be used on almost all materials. Jigsaws are mostly used to saw curves and corners.The lighter weight is not as big an issue I thought it would be, it is just the guide letting it down. I hadn't realised that my old Makita was missing the splinter device, and it has a separate guide (almost like the sighting on a gun), which worked well. This doesn't have that, it has this metal loop thing instead (maybe I can mark it).
