Cuts Common Building Materials with Ease
Winner of Fine Homebuilding magazine's Best Value award, the CJ110MV features a 5.8 Amp motor that generates a variable speed of 850-3,000 SPM. The electronic speed control technology maintains speed--even under load--for smooth, accurate cuts every time. The lock-on, variable-speed triggers lets you control the speed and keep it set without having to squeeze the trigger--a great feature for all-day jobs.

And with four-stage orbital action that boosts the CJ110MV's efficiency and allows you to select the aggressiveness of the cut, this jig saw cuts shapes in just about any common building material, including wood, mild steel, aluminum, copper, Bakelite, vinyl chloride, and stainless steel sheeting.

High-Quality Blade and Base Ensure Accurate Cuts
The CJ110MV comes with a high-carbon steel blade (No.41) that handles fast, straight, and parallel cuts on hard/soft woods, particle board, and plastic. The blade's maximum wood-cutting capacity is 4-5/16 inches; its maximum metal-cutting capacity is 3/8 inch. The jig saw can also be used with any "T" shank blade, including metal, all-purpose, and abrasive designs.

Additionally, the CJ110MV features a cast aluminum nickel-plated base that bevels 45-degrees to the left and right for angled cutting applications. Offering great cut support, the base won't scratch your work surface.

Full of User-Friendly Features
The CJ110MV features Hitachi's pioneering ergonomics that make it comfortable and easy to use. To start, the jigsaw is covered in soft Elastomer, which absorbs vibration, prevents slippage, and increases control. Additionally, the saw has a curved, D-shaped handle that conforms to your grip and is comfortable to hold in a variety of positions. What's more, this jig saw is the lightest in its class, weighing just 4.9 pounds. Its lightweight design helps prevent user fatigue and makes maneuvering the tool as easy as can be.

For further ease of use, a tool-less blade change system makes for quick and easy changes, a top-mounted LED provides cut-line visibility, and a powerful dust blower pushes sawdust and chips away from your cutting path for a clean, easily visible work surface.

The CJ110MV Variable-Speed Jig Saw is backed by Hitachi's industry-leading five-year limited warranty.

I bought the jig saw for a bathroom renovation and for use around the house. It has worked flawlessly. The ergonomic grip fits the hand very well and allows superior control of the saw. I had looked at several saws before deciding on the Hitachi and narrowed it down to these attributes: ease of use, value, and warranty (the Hitachi comes with a five year warranty). Other tools were either too expensive or had commercial/tradesman features that I just did not need. I have been a fan of Hitachi Power Tools from my early days as a plumber- using their rotary drills on a daily basis- they performed without a problem. The same can be stated for this jig saw.
Unfortunately, many name brand tools are being manufactured in China (Hitachi included for some tools) by contracted companies with low quality standards. This saw is made in Japan with Lean Six Sigma standards; quality throughout. If something does go wrong Hitachi will replace or repair it up to five years after purchase so hold on to that receipt or register it.
I give this Four Stars only because the variable seed is only slightly affected by the trigger. There is an adjustable wheel is front of the handle so be sure you select the correct speed for the material you are cutting first. After that, there is only a slight amount of speed variation that can be applied. Overall, this is a very good saw and a great value with its price and features.
I am updating this post on December 24, 2009: I am discovering that most if not all of these Hitachi jig saws are now made in China so the quality that I stated earlier is unknown. It seems that only the displays are made in Japan (and that is changing fast). The good part is that the tool -- last time I checked -- comes with a five year warranty which is one of the best in the business. Hopefully the tools will last, I have noticed that the plastic portions do not look and feel as durable as they did in the past...

I bought this jig saw to upgrade from the one I currently have which is a skil. No comparison. The Hitachi has a light that helps you see your line and the motor blows away the dust as you cut, great feature. It also cuts very smooth, no vibration transferred to your work piece which makes cutting smaller pieces much easier. The handle is ergonomically designed making a very comfortable feel in your hand. It also has plenty of power or if you prefer you can dial your variable speed setting down to lowest and cut slower. It also has 4 different settings for orbiting the blade which you can set at 0 and have no orbiting for smoother more acurate cuts. One more great feature is the quick change blade feature, no wrench needed. You can't beat the price either. I bought mine for 100. Also comes with a factory 5 year warranty.

I bought the Hitachi because of the Fine Homebuilding review and a great price. When it arrived, I tried it out, it cut beautifully, but then the blade fell out of the saw. After this happened a dozen times, I called Amazon, who said to return it and they'd swap it out, but I might want to talk to Hitachi 1st to see if there was an easy fix. So I did, and Hitachi said this happened about 10% of the time, and I could fix it locally or return it to place of purchase. So, another call to Amazon, they sent a new one in like 2 days, and emailed a label to return the old one. The second one works well in all the ways other reviewers speak of.

In sum, if you're going to buy one, Amazon is a great vendor in terms of support. The process of diagnosing replacing it could not have been easier--unless of course they'd manufactured the saw in the EU or someplace where better QA would have prevented the problem in the first place, instead of, you guessed it, the host of the summer Olympics.

I needed a new jig saw. I knew my 25 year old jig saw would not be capable of cutting the Brazilian hardwood we were using for our new deck. The jigsaw was necessary because of the semi-circular stairs my wife and I had decided would look neat coming off our deck.

It was only a total of four steps, but it was much more complicated than we expected. The jig saw cut through the hardwood easily and smoothly, without the severe shaking I expected from my old jigsaw. Changing the blades was easier too. While the whole unit was heavier and larger than the old one, the handle fit my grip perfectly so that I could work for hours without tiring the muscles of my hands or wrist.

A good buy!

The quality of this Jigsaw can't be beat at this price. Excellent power with a cast metal base that is flat and true. Just dont expect variable speed at the trigger. This saw has a seperate knob to vary speed. I have used Dewalt units and you just don't get that much more for your money.

After several disappointing tries with other brands and older saws, I had pretty much given up on jigsaws in general. Trouble is, there really isn't any other tool for cutting canoe and kayak forms, so based on my previous experience with Hitachi tools I took a chance on this one and oh man, was my faith restored. Blade installation was easy, speed adjustment was smooth, and when I went to cut my 3/4"plywood forms, it blasted through like a laser. Straight cuts went almost as smooth, straight, and fast as I can do with a circular saw, and it sailed around curves like nobody's business. Just for fun, I trimmed some aluminum sheets too- Not a single hiccup in 8 straight hours, and now I'm looking for more projects. This saw is an excellent choice.
