Top-handle jigsaws can cut a wide range of materials depending on the blade used with the device. When comparing top-handle jigsaws to body-grip jigsaws, for individuals with smaller hands, or those who struggle with gripping the tool then a top-handle jigsaw may be more comfortable. Top-handle jigsaws are a little less flexible when it comes to the cutting clearance in tight spaces.

  • The key differences between jigaws is whether to select the top handle or body grip and whether you need a jigsaw specifically designed for metalworking. The top handle jigsaw is the more common and, as the name suggests, have a handle on top of the body.
  • Choosing your power source: The first choice is between a mains (110v or 240v) or a cordless tool. 240v tools are used with normal mains power whilst 110v tools are used on construction sites for safety reasons.
  • With regards to cordless (battery powered) tools there are a variety of chemical types; Li-ion is the latest technology, prior to that it was Ni-MH and Ni-Cad was the original. The higher the Ah (Ampere hours) the longer the interval between charges; the fewer times you recharge a battery the longer it will last. Some cordless tools can also come without batteries - sometimes referred to as naked, bare units or body only. These tools are supplied without a battery or charger and more often than not without any accessories; as a result they are significantly cheaper in price.
  • The other key consideration is the depth of cut into the material required. Most jigsaws have a variable speed function.
