Does it come with a case?

Asked by: Trkkr
Description says yes. There is NO case in the box and only one coarse blade.

Does it come with a saw?or just the tool?

Asked by: David77

Pour le modèle 5.5A scie sauteuse Dewalt, c'est les lames en U ou en T? Y-a-t-il une lame qui vient avec? Pour bois, métal ou plastic?

Jigsaw - 5.5 A is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw but not great saw The saw works great and feels quality built. The only thing I don't like about it is you can't see the cutting line because of saw dust piling up in front of the blade. It needs a little hole at the blade somewhere so the motor fan can blow the saw dust out of the way. The way it is now, you cut a 1/4 inch and blow the saw dust out of the way, cut 1/4 inch and blow again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had one for years and bought this one for my son for his tool shower before his wedding. I've always loved the simplicity in design and the ease of change with the blades. Great tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Jigsaw Solidly built. Good power. Smelled like hot oil after a long run through some ceramic tile, but kept on going. Rugged design for blade mounting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fooled by the yellow color i went to lowes to get a porter cable jigsaw but they were out. the manager said he could discount the dewalt so I got it instead. I thought because it was a dewalt it would be better..wrong. the saw works and cuts fine BUT it throws the sawdust on your cutting line and in your face and I do not have enough wind in me to keep blowing the dust off the line. I have even used a air gun to blow the dust off. obvious design flaw. if I could take it back I would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for U Shank blades! The tool itself is impressive. It has more than enough power and heavy enough to be stable. One caveat: U Shank blades seem to fit and lock, but the blade will continually disengage from the saw. I switched to T Shank blades and did not have this problem. After burning out my Skil jigsaw I purchased this to finish cutting 3 of 4 arches through redwood 2" X 12" X 8' for a garden bridge. This saw and a new blade cut through the stock in no time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did I get a bad one? I had cut less than 10 feet of lumber and the blade quick release cam part and the blade fell out. I have other DeWalt tools and never had this kind of problem. Maybe I just got a bad one? Before the quick release feel apart it did great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Tough Accurate saw This is when I realized how superior DeWALT tools were compared to cheaper power tools. For years I had a cheap jigsaw and it made sloppy cuts that were not square. I avoided using my jigsaw for this reason. I eventually bought this DeWALT and never looked back. Now I am pretty confident in my ability to use my jigsaw, and I know it is because of the quality of the tool. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointed A couple of years ago I started buying DeWalt products to upgrade my older Makita power tools. So far I have acquired a circular saw, a saws all, a hammer drill, a framing nailer, a finish nailer, and numerous Dewalt hand tools. Last Xmas I was given a model 317 saber saw and expected it to preform as well as the other DeWalts I have. I used it this week for the first time and have been disappointed. 1. The blade keeps falling out of the locking holder. 2. The motor gets extremely hot. The metal portion of the tool is too hot to touch when having to replace the blade. 3. And perhaps the biggest problem is the fact that the saw dust piles up directly in front of the blade. I have to hold a foxtail brush in my left hand and constantly sweep the dust out of the way while using my right hand to hold the tool. Have there been any fixes developed to alleviate these problems? Tks, Richard

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I just purchased this jig saw and so far I am not impressed. The lock button is situated in such a place that you lock it while running the saw. The variable speed is difficult to set or change. I have broken 3 blades cutting thin sheet metal. I have to run the saw at an angle to cut a straight line. I have other DeWalt products but this does not meet my expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Overall Jigsaw I wanted a corded jigsaw and decided on the Dewalt. It didn’t disappoint. It is easy to guide. A blower ensures sawdust is cleared from the path so marks can easily be followed. It has power for cross cuts and even ripping, although it slows down a lot while ripping with the grain. My only concern is the trigger is a bit touchy. The ergonomic design of the handle and proximity of the button had me accidentally running the jigsaw while I was holding it. Still, a great jigsaw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked fine until it didn't I purchased this saw because I felt DeWalt was a good quality brand and the price was right. However, after using it for projects around the house for less than five hours (heaviest wood I cut was 2x4), the saw broke. I took it to a shop for repair-unfortunately it was out of warranty-and it took DeWalt FOUR MONTHS to ship replacement parts. Their repair parts support is horrible and I have been without a saw for that long. Sorry DeWalt, this is the last tool I'll buy from you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good but blade falls out Like the saw... but it has a habit of the blade coming out easy and often. Considering taking it back for that reason

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 5.5 Amp is a champ The DEWALT 5.5 Amp Corded Jigsaw was performed exactly as I needed it to. I've had it for a week and have already used it for multiple projects at work and at home. Installing and removing the blade is very quick and easy. The cutting action was like running a hot knife through butter. Thanks Dewalt and Lowes!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't cut straight This saw has plenty of power but that is where it ends. I have tried about a dozen cuts with this thing and it will not cut straight up and down. The blade keeps popping out of the guide and then the cut goes at an angle. It seems that where the saw goes up and down is way to sloppy and it moves around too much. Any little pressure just moves the thing all over the place. Sorry Dewalt but I will be returning this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price, but u shank blades harder to come by. Good price, but Lowe’s only has a 12 pack of U Shank blades by Skill. Have to get bigger blade pack at Home Depot or Amazon. The Jigsaw works great and cuts as it should. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the wait Some tools you buy because you need for all occasions. this jigsaw is for the expert who want to buy one saw and use it for the rest of his life. That is this saw. Will do tight radius, quiet and comes with a carry bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEWALT corded jigsaw This item cost a lot of money and in my opinion it was a dangerous piece of equipment to use as the trigger control did not function well the saw blade kept running when trigger was released saw lay on bench with blade moving although it was moving slowly I assume it could start faster at anytime, I returned the saw to merchant where purchased and bought another brand saw.
