Dewalt just announced a new 20V Max lithium-ion cordless jig saw, DCS331L1, that’s said to provides longer runtime, improved ergonomics, and greater efficiency. The jig saw is designed to offer accuracy and versatility to tackle a variety of cuts in different materials.
The new jig saw features an all-metal lever-action keyless blade change, variable-speed 0-3000 SPM motor, and 4-position orbital action. An adjustable blower keeps the cut-line clear of chips, dust, and debris, and an anti-slip comfort grip allows for improved control. The all-metal keyless shoe bevels, with detents at common angles – 0°, 15°, 30°, and 45°.
Included in the kit will be one 3.0Ah battery with fuel gauge, a fast-charger, starter jig saw blade (T-shank), and a kit box. The saw will also be available separately as a bare-tool add-on (DCS331B). MSRP is $279 for the kit and $149 for the bare tool. ETA is April 2012.
