What's Hot?
  • Easiest tool-less blade change mechanism that I have ever used on any jigsaw, using T-shank type blades
  • Features a 3 mode Oscillation feature which controls whether the saw cuts very fast but not as clean, medium speed and medium cleanliness, or slow but very clean
  • True variable speed trigger. The trigger on the PCC650B is the perfect combination of sensitivity and responsiveness. You have the ability to fully press the trigger for max speed, but you can also slightly press it for slow speed operation.
  • Lightweight and easy to control making it very comfortable for extended use.
What's Not?
  • The baseplate would benefit from being a bit more substantial
Bottom Line The PORTER CABLE PCC650B 20-volt MAX Lithium Bare Jigsaw is part of Porter Cable's 20-volt MAX Lithium tool line-up. All the tools in the range come as bare tool - i.e. no battery supplied. The PCC650B jigsaw has all the features you'd expect - 3 orbital settings to adjust the cut aggressiveness across wide range of applications, a variable speed trigger (0-2,500 SPM) which provides control for clean and accurate cuts, and an integrated dust blower clears debris for better visibility. It also has a tool-free blade release that allows for quick and easy blade changes, along with a beveling shoe that provides the ability to cut 0 to 45 degree bevel cuts. Overall, the PORTER CABLE PCC650B 20-volt MAX Lithium Bare Jigsaw is an excellent professional-grade cordless jigsaw for the price.
