Jigsaw Corded or Cordless: Showdown!

Which is a better buy, a corded or cordless jigsaw? In this corded and cordless jigsaw review, Andrew compared his favorite corded jigsaw to a new 20 volt cordless model. In this cordless jigsaw comparison, Andrew tries each saw in some taxing situations to see how they measure up.

Tools Used:

Bosch JS470E Jigsaw

Porter-Cable 20 volt max Lithium cordless jigsaw


Samuel Garcia says:

In the first cut you made you had the orbital setting on the Porter Cable set to 2. However the instructions say to put it on zero when cutting curves. That’s probably why the cut came out rough…

Mehul gajjar says:

nice, thanks for showing.

Bekim Krasniqi says:

I have the same Bosch jigsaw, js470e. All I can say is that its a monster. I dont think there is anything out there thats better.

Brian Brian says:

Almost everything you cut seemed to move during. That will bog down anything. You said everything was clamped down tightly, but I think you should try better clamps or get ’em a little tighter

PatCavanaugh1 says:

Should have used a separate blade for each saw.

Steve Berg says:

I would be interested in seeing how easy angle adjustments are made and do they hold?

Grant Paris says:

I think you should have installed a “new” blade in the Bosch before trying to cut the metal.

lou cifer says:

I have the same porter cable it’s pretty good saw for the money

Andrew Olsen says:

Porter Cable looks like a heap of shit, try a Makita they’re a lot better to use..

Eric Killian says:

Well, you’re obviously going to get more power with a corded saw. It just comes down to whether you want a little better performance or a little better convenience.

K Hawk says:

120 volts ac compared to 20 volt dc – – – – dugh?

Retail Solutions says:

festool sucks

miner49erpete says:

The blade was the wrong way round.
