Jigsaw PJSS 12-230V

Laser-guided precision tool for well-made straight-line, curved or mitre cuts

Always perfectly tailored to your requirements

Probably no other pendulum action jigsaw of this class combines as many practice-optimised performance advantages as Trotec's PJSS 12-230V. The accomplished combination of equally powerful and smoothly running 850 W motor, 4-step pendulum action, electronic stroke rate selection and scores of other sophisticated details distinguishes this jigsaw and makes it the best recommendation for professional continuous operation, demanding projects and complex renovation work.

The PJSS 12-230V impresses with a stroke rate infinitely variable between 0 and 3,000 spm – whereby the number of cuts can be adjusted precisely to any material. An integrated switch locking device further permits the switch-over to continuous operation for maximum sawing progress. With this setting you can achieve cutting depths of up to 80 mm in wood, up to 12 mm in aluminium and up to 8 mm in metal. The restart protection prevents the jigsaw from being switched on again automatically, e.g. B. after a power failure and thus offers an additional level of security.

The quick-release chuck of the PJSS 12-230V permits a tool-free saw blade exchange in a matter of seconds. Any saw blade with single lug shank can be used and in order for you to get started right away, a number of high-quality saw blades for all application areas are already included in the scope of delivery.

You will be presented with even more application possibilities when using the PJSS 12-230V in combination with our multi-part set of saw blades for wood or metal – needless to say, both will be supplied in prime Trotec quality as well.

Laser-guided dead on target

A good view of the workpiece is of vital importance for the quality of the cut; as is an optimum sawing performance accomplished by an equally powerful and smoothly running motor with variably adjustable pendulum action. Not a problem if you use the PJSS 12-230V: The transparent anti-splinter guard with marker point ensures precise tear-free cuts for your sawing work. Moreover, thanks to the integrated LED lamp and the practical blow-out function there will be no sawdust obstructing your view of the well illuminated cutting area of the workpiece.

What is more, the PJSS 12-230V comes equipped with an innovative laser guide that can be switched on separately as needed. The laser projects a red line on the workpiece indicating the cutting direction. This facilitates the freehand operation of the saw along a straight line. It is easy to see, should you veer off course, so you can just as easily return to the cutting line.

In terms of ergonomics, the compact PJSS 12-230V was optimized for professional continuous operation: with a perfectly positioned centre of gravity and additional soft grip inlays in the housing. Consequently, a firm and secure grip is ensured even during longer operation for low-vibration sawing at all times. With the robust steel base plate it can be directed very precisely. For mitre cuts the saw's base plate can be swivelled to both sides in increments of 15°. The maximum is 45°. This adjustment does not require tools. A plastic sliding plate for the protection of sensitive workpieces is also supplied.

Working faster without tools

Unlike with many other jigsaws on the market, no additional tools are required to use the PJSS 12-230V. From the saw blade exchange to the adjustment of the cutting angle – it can all be done without any tools. Hardly the norm, but perfectly normal for the PJSS 12-230V!

The PJSS 12-230V for neat sawing progress in ever so tidy surroundings

The PJSS 12-230V is a neat and tidy solution for various jigsaw applications – not restricted to the workshop, garage or outdoors. Thanks to the integrated dust extraction system you can also use this pendulum action jigsaw in your living areas without wreaking havoc or being smothered in sawdust.

You want to saw your kitchen worktop or the shelf in the living room to length directly on site? Simply set the blower function of the PJSS 12-230V to suction mode and connect an external vacuum cleaner to the device. Using the suction function you can keep both the room and the ambient air free from wood chippings, plastic shavings, metal swarf and sawdust – for convenient sawing even in the living area!

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

VC 15‑20V – perfect working without raising any dust

With the cordless vacuum cleaner VC 15‑20V you spare yourself the trouble of emptying the dust bag. As an extraction system for electric tools, the VC 15‑20V keeps the air and working environment clean – making you independent of free sockets and annoying extension cables. Just as many Trotec power tools, the vacuum cleaner draws its power from a lithium-ion battery (20V/2Ah) from the Flexpower multi-device battery series.

Fine dust particles that are ejected in the sanding or sawing process are sucked into the 10-litre dust collection container without any effort by the extremely manoeuvrable cordless vacuum cleaner with its practical castors. Furthermore, an integrated HEPA filter (> 89 % filter efficiency) prevents dust particles that have been sucked in from getting back into the room air and being inhaled.

Brand quality plus cost-efficiency

Until now, however, you basically only had two options when choosing a pendulum action jigsaw: either good but expensive, or mainly cheap. Trotec’s PowerTools now offer a smart choice: good price, good product and good design – all in one. HighPerformance in every respect, for we do not only stand for measuring devices and air conditioners, but also for power tools of brand quality: professional Trotec solutions with an excellent value-for-money ratio!
