10 reviews for DEWALT 20V MAX Jig Saw, Tool Only (DCS331B)

  1. D. Porter

    After using for some time now, I prefer this over a chorded Milwaukee. Better balance, speed control and tracking. And even the blade chuck is easier to use, in my opinion. It is also very easy on the battery. It does get warm with long cuts, but that is the nature of this type of tool.

    Power tools are like cars. They can’t be productive if you don’t have power. And, the most common reason I find to not use a power tool or to try a workaround is the need to have extension cords and electrical outlets when I’m working in the field. I can’t be the only person who has tried to use the wrong piece of equipment to do a job because I was in a situation where obtaining power would be cumbersome and time-consuming. Rather than running a extension cord to the jobsite, I typically ended up trying to cut an item with the wrong type of saw.I have become a huge fan of the DeWalt 20 V system. I use their jigsaw, power saw, planer, hammer drills and standard drills, lights, radio, and miter saw.The batteries are expensive. You will have to get at least a five amp battery to get any reasonable time you set of these products. Annual needs several batteries and a charger and this all cost more money. However, you will use the tool more frequently and wonder how you managed to live without a lithium powered saw.This jigsaw is great. Tons of power. And nothing is easier than when you’re at your workbench and you simply need to cut a dowel or a piece of finish wood, pop and a battery and you’re done.I haven’t had any failures which would clearly change my mind. I only buy the OEM batteries.So far, so good. This one does get five stars

    This DeWalt 20V jigsaw does not disappoint. Most woodworkers already know the Bosch Jigsaw 1587AVS is the gold standard for jigsaws, there is a newer version out now but I really want a cordless. Im already locked into the DeWalt 20v line so after reading reviews & watching some videos I ordered this, it has the same power as my plug in and seems to be just as good (close enough) Im happy so far. The blade has not come out like other reviewers have stated. I especially like the fact its cordless. I am a finish carpenter, I install millwork & cabinets for 20 years now and really appreciate good tools, I figure being cordless could make my day a little more exciting because lets face it, theres nothing fun about waking up at 3 am to drive into the city and have to bust ass all day long, it kinda sucks so maybe this saw will make my day a little more interesting & help me to go home faster being that its cordless, the less work I have to do the quicker I can go home, YEAH… I will edit this as time goes on. I did get it on a promotion deal

    I had and old and cheap jig saw I bought in high school for a single project in 1972. ithe last 50 years I used it infrequently but enough to know it’s hard to change blades, it doesn’t have a blower so dust covers your line you are trying to follow, and it’s light weight feels cheap in the hand and nearly impossible to control. Its one speed only no variable speed. This new jig saw from DeWalt is a dream to use, the variable speed is a much needed feature, it has a blower so your line is easy to follow and it’s heavy enough that the saw is controllable and doesn’t feel like it’s out of control and by comparison the blade change is easy and fast. It’s like driving a new Mercedes in comparison to driving a 62 VW bug.this thing is a new tool to me and I’m used it more in the 3 weeks i’ve owned it then I used the other jig saw in 50 years. Now, to be clear, I’m not a cabinet maker or a custom home builder. I am a homeowner that built my own house and have extensive framing experience and have worked in all phases of home building. I know a good tool in my hands and am a good judge of quality. I could not be happier. This tool has enough power to cut through 1 inch oak and the precision while doing it of an old world time piece. I think this is a very good saw and look forward to using it more often. I think DeWalt built a very fine tool. I always strive to buy the best tool I can afford for the job at hand and used table saws from the kind you can pick up with two fingers all the way up to A 14 inch blade stationary sliding table saw, all cast iron that weighed in the 2500 lbs range. this is not that behemoth but for a jig saw this works spectacularly. Buy with confidence. .

    It’s just a little heavy and the attached battery makes it hard to get in some extra tight spots but other than that it’s great. well designed tool with plenty of power and battery life. Blade change is super easy as is setting an angle on the foot. It has a blower to clear sawdust from the cut which takes that job off of me (thank god). I just finished building a glass over plywood bass boat and used this saw extensively to cut everything from 1/4″ to 1 1/2″ material. It worked flawlessly.

  6. P. E. Smith

    It took me a little while to get past the fact that this didn’t come with a battery pack or charger. OK…I missed that part in the description BUT they didn’t even go on to recommend a battery or charger pack further down the listing, just saw bits for use. How am I going to use saw bits when I’ve got NO BATTERY?!Anyway, be cautious when looking for a battery and charger pack. I had found them separate but with perseverance was able to find a package deal with charger and two batteries together.Best Jigsaw I’ve EVER used! Variable speeds in one trigger. Easy change out blades with one latch. Jigsaw even tilts at multiple various angles with the use of one bar and pulling the carriage forward. Super powerful. Supper fast. Super cutting ability. BEST PURCHASE I’ve made in a long while!

  7. Rod

    Been staying with cordless Dewalt for 25 years. Used this to replace my 40 year old corded porter cable. Cord was rotting off and only used bayonet blades… Getting pretty hard to find. The cordless and quick release blades are wonderful. Plenty of power and walks through most any woods, steel etc. Very little vibration and you have plenty of control. A great tool for most people to have 1 of. Buy it.

  8. Ranie

    Great Jig Saw. This replaced my 22 year old corded, Craftsman. I’ve been using it for several weeks now. No power cord, long lasting battery, easy to maneuver, blade stays pretty straight, feels solid in my hand when I’m cutting anything, The only improvement I would make is an LED light. Still VERY nice though. Dewalt — come-on guys, add an LED.

  9. HAL

    I bought this because 1) I needed a sabre saw to fit the T-shank on some specialized Plexiglas blades I bought, and 2) I’m already a member of the DeWalt “20V-MAX” ecosystem. It replaces my 30+ year old Craftsman saw which was so worn the blade could be rotated in the linear bearing +/- 15 degrees by finger pressure! The adjustable orbital blade motion is great and the external ball-bearing blade guide greatly reduces stress of the internal bearings. Plenty of power to cut through 1/2″ Plexiglas. Biggest surprise was the muted, smooth, low-pitched motor sound. Even though this model didn’t have a brushless motor, it sure sounded like one.

  10. Amazon Customer

    My wife bought this for me for Christmas. I had been using an old corded porter cable for years before and was never really happy with how nimble it was on radius cuts. This dewalt is so nimble, it can basically turn on a dime. It’s easy to change your blade and has a good feel in your hand. When my chainsaw broke my wife and I even used it to cut 1-2″ limbs down in our center island. Works great
