Morning all,

Lookin at some Jigsaws and have narrowed the field to the Bosch line. I am comparing the JSS470 and JS572 series. Aside from the 7.0 vs 7.2 amps the only big differences I can find, beside the $100 price difference, are….

The JS470 has an extra 3/8 of an inch in cutting depth and includes all of the accessories of the other.

The JS572 is a good percentage larger, and is somehow lighter, than the other.

What are your thoughts LJ’ers?

without reading the info i ll offer this:

Barrel grips are nice

the additional 3/8 cutting depth would rarely be meaningful to me

physical weight does have meaning ,,,,more winding likely and also aids in smoother operation

Enjoy !

Have your say...
