Slim and strong - Milwaukee JS 120 X: high performance body grip jigsaw

05/09/2008

Ease of handling, high accuracy of cut and low-vibration are all facets of the new JS 120 X jigsaw from Milwaukee.

In addition to its versatility, it has other impressive characteristics such as a slim and ergonomically shaped motor housing. The large soft grip surface ensures a secure comfortable grip when working for longer periods.

Due to its shape, the Milwaukee JS 120 X also offers a far improved view of the saw blade and the line of cut. This new unit also features an extra large blade roller guide which significantly increases blade stability and high cutting accuracy. The base plate made of die cast aluminium and the anti-vibration system also aid in maintaining a true line of cut.

The patented FIXTEC system enables the saw blades to be changed quickly without using tools. The FIXTEC system also allows tool free adjustment of the base plate for mitre cuts up to an angle of 45. Thanks to the four-stage adjustment of the pendulum action and continuous speed preselection, the JS 120 X can also be adapted to all applications and materials.

The powerful 710 Watt motor guarantees maximum cutting depths of 120 mm in wood, 30 mm in aluminium and 10 mm in metal. The jig saw also features digital electronics with a soft start function and constant regulation of the cutting speed under load. The machine is extremely stable thanks to the integrated metal block technology. The bearings, gears and base plate are embedded in a robust metal housing which ensures high durability and stability.

The new jig saw comes with standard equipment of a case, five saw blades, an anti-scratch cover for sensitive surfaces, an anti-splinter insert, a dust cap and a suction adapter. Milwaukee also supplies a large number of saw blade types for all current applications and materials, as well as a combined fence & trammel bar for parallel and round cuts.
