Bosch didn't skimp on power with the JS572 - its 7.2 amp motor makes it the most powerful jigsaw in its class. Yet despite its heavy-hitting motor, Bosch has trimmed and toned it in other areas to make it one of the lighter jigsaws in their lineup, weighing only 5.1 lbs. The aluminum gearbox and magnesium footplate are part of that lightweight formula, yet sacrifice nothing in terms of strength. Add to that a new precision double-roller blade guidance system, LED lighting to illuminates the cut line in dim and dusty conditions, and an included dust extraction kit, and you have a blueprint for a jigsaw that's sure to become a classic. Also available in a barrel-grip body style (52059, sold separately).

  • Powerful motor with 7.2-amp rating - the highest in its class
  • Precision Control II Double-Roller blade guidance system laterally self-adjusts to minimize blade defection
  • Switchable LED lighting for enhanced visibility of cutting area
  • Large die-cast magnesium footplate with tool-free bevel adjustment
  • Variable-speed control dial sets maximum speed and accelerator trigger controls operating speed
  • Constant Response Circuitry maintains desired speed for consistent performance under load
  • Exclusive multi-directional blade clamp provides superior grip of T-shank blades (does not accept U-Shank blades)
  • Aluminum gearbox with insulated cover
  • Toolless blade-change system for fast blade changes
  • Blade ejection lever eliminates need to touch hot blade
  • Four orbital-action settings for smooth to aggressive cuts
  • Fully counterbalanced mechanism with low-vibration design ensures extremely smooth operation
  • Dust blower with on/off switch keeps cut line free of dust

A good tool
I bought my first Bosch jig saw in the early 80's as a GC and then took in into my cabinet shop. I have done a number of repairs on it to keep it alive. It has passed on. This model was written up in my trade journals. I noticed that the box stores carry this jig saw for less money but a different model number. It has been my experience that the box stores get a lesser quality model to sell at less money. You get what you pay for. I am sure that this jig saw will out live me.

Woodworking Experience:
Excellent jigsaw
This is the third jigsaw I have owned and it is, by far, the best of the three. The saw is responsive and gives me good control of the cut. I particularly like the LED illumination of the cutting area, although I would have suggested that the LEDs be controlled by the trigger - there's no need for the LEDs to be on all the time (although they can be turned off, and their presence does indicate that the saw is "live"). The range of speeds achievable with the variable speed trigger, up to the "max" speed selected by the well-protected rotary dial in the rear of the unit, is quite good. The precision of the cuts I have been able to make with this jigsaw is significantly better than the cuts I've been able to make with my previous jigsaws; I expect to dispose of at lest one of the previous saws, keeping the better of the two as an emergency backup. This new one is definitely my "go-to" unit when I need a jigsaw.

Bosch is known for their jigsaws(among other things) so I went for the top of the line. The tool felt great, and you can tell that the materials used are high quality. This particular one seemed to be defective, the two wheels that hold the blade straight to decrease deflection were out of line which made the blade sit a little crooked which resulted in wandering as well as a cut that was not straight up and down. I returned the item and bought the jigsaw that goes with my Dewalt 20v Max lineup which works flawlessly, it was less expensive PLUS it's cordless. I did make sure to buy the Bosch blade set though, they are far superior blades. I'm sure that my experience with the Bosch wasn't typical at all, others seem to love theirs.
