DEWALT® Launches New 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion Jigsaw Designed for Accurate Cuts with Convenience and Portability

TOWSON, Md. (Feb. 7, 2012) – Today, DEWALT announces the launch of the 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion Jigsaw Kit (DCS331L1), an addition to the 20 Volt MAX* system launched in June 2011. The new jigsaw is designed to offer improved runtime, ergonomics and comfort with features such as keyless blade change for enhanced productivity on the jobsite. The jigsaw is ideal for contractors who are tasked with cutting and installing a variety of materials including remodelers, flooring installers, finish carpenters, kitchen fitters and furniture makers.

“We know that contractors are looking for a jigsaw that offers accuracy and versatility to tackle a variety of cuts in different materials,†said Sean Templeton, product manager, DEWALT. “Our new unit offers several features designed to address these needs specifically, and we are confident that contractors will recognize the benefits.â€

For increased productivity, the all-metal lever-action keyless blade change allows professionals to complete quick and easy blade changes. For further versatility, DEWALT equipped the DCS331L1 with variable speed control ranging from 0-3,000 strokes per minute (SPM); this range gives the user control over the cut, and allows the jigsaw to handle a variety of materials and applications. For extended runtime, the jigsaw comes equipped with a 3.0 Ah battery with fuel gauge LED indicator lights.

The four-position orbital action provides control of cut quality and cut speed. In order to ensure a precise cut, DEWALT installed an adjustable blower to keep the line of cut clear of chips and debris. Also, the anti-slip comfort grip provides comfort and control for the user.

The DCS331L1 is engineered to accept T-shank jigsaw blades. For easy bevel cutting, it features an all-metal keyless shoe bevel with detents at zero degrees, 15 degrees, 30 degrees and 45 degrees; the most common angles used among professionals.

The DCS331L1 and DCS331B will be available in April 2012 through independent distributors. The kit (DCS331L1) will feature one DCS331 jigsaw, one 20 Volt MAX* Lithium Ion 3.0 Ah Fuel Gauge battery pack, one fast charger, one jigsaw blade and a kit box. The kit is expected to retail for approximately $279.00. The 20V MAX* Jig Saw will also be available in a bare model (DCS331B), which is sold without a battery or charger for roughly $149.00. The tool will come with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract, and 90-day money-back guarantee.
