MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (June 22, 2021) Bosch Power Tools today announced the availability of its 18V Barrel-Grip Jig Saw, a compact tool with impressive barrel-grip ergonomics perfect for roofers, carpenters and cabinet installers.

The barrel grip design on the new GST18V-47N gives users optimal control over the cutting application with the hand closer to the work piece and a lock on switch for further comfort, especially when cutting upside down. Its auto-stop brake features a stroke mechanism that stops immediately after the trigger is moved to the off position for increased user protection, while the LED light and blower function provide an optimal view of the cutting line for precision.

The 18V Barrel-Grip Jig Saw also boasts four pendulum stages so users can choose between fast cutting progress or cleaner cuts, a one-hand, tool-free T-shank blade-change system for easy release of the saw blade and easy blade changes, especially when hot or broken, plus speed preselection to choose the correct blade speed for specific applications.
