  • Our expert review Bosch PST 18 LI: a fine jigsaw

    Marijn de Graaf | 16 April 2020 | In the version: Bosch PST 18 LI + 2x 18-volt 1.3Ah batteries | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Feels nice in the hand
    • Removable battery
    • Control the cutting speed
    • Protected for cutting
    • You can't see where the saw is
    • Safety button works awkwardly

    I think the Bosch PST 18 LI is a nice addition to my toolbox. I find it easy to use and lightweight. I had trouble with the safety button at first.

    Cordless sawing
    This Bosch jigsaw works on an 18-volt battery. This allowed me to see wherever I wanted: in my parents' garden or on my small balcony. I didn't have to fumble with extension cords or search for power outlets. In addition, I alternated the batteries with a drill and sander with the same battery platform during the job. When the battery was empty, I used a second battery to continue working. As a result, I was not impatiently waiting before I could see further. An empty battery was recharged within an hour.

    Safety first
    As a novice handyman, I found it difficult to get used to having a real jigsaw in my hands. I therefore liked that this Bosch saw works with a safety button. You first press this and then the saw will start. This gave me more confidence in the machine (and in my DIY skills). I had to learn how to smoothly get the jigsaw on with the safety button.

    Feels nice in the hand
    For all women among us: this jigsaw also fits perfectly in a woman's hand. This saw has a nice grip. While I was cutting, I didn't feel like the device was falling out of my hands or slipping at any moment. I did bend over sometimes to see exactly where my saw was in the workpiece and whether I was sawing correctly.

    Variable Speed
    What I really liked about this saw was the variable speed. I turned the saw softer to make a controlled start in a wooden plank. Then I pressed the button all the way down to cut harder. Because of this I wasn't stuck to one kind of tempo, but I could play with the speed and therefore do more precise jobs. In short, despite my small budget, I got my money's worth with this Bosch jigsaw.

    Excellent tool to add to your Bosch arsenal

    • Robust, solid device
    • light
    • Easy to change saw blade
    • battery platform
    • Saw miter
    • The automatic sawdust blower only works when the machine is running at full speed

    Does what it's supposed to do: saw.
    The only downside I can come up with (but this is really annoying ..) is that the dust is not blown away when you let it saw gently, for example in the beginning or if you want to see if you still saw straight. Then you blow away the sawdust yourself, so that the plastic protective cap fogs up again (and you can no longer see where you are sawing). You're not making it up.

    1 saw blade is included, which is intended for coarse and fast sawing. You can find and store these in the plastic storage box that is mounted in the foot, which is super handy. When buying other saws, make sure you buy T-shank saws. New saws do not have to be expensive at all and can be found in bulk at your local DIY store. Or Coolblue, your choice.

    Small development points, but definitely recommended!

    Frank | 11 April 2021 | In the version: 1x 18-volt 2.5Ah battery | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • cordless
    • Anti-splinter strip
    • Kärcher vacuum cleaner hose fits
    • Slanted sawing is inconvenient
    • Battery charger not to hang

    The saw does its job as it should. The adjustable 'oscillating sawing movement' makes it possible to quickly saw through a plank with a somewhat coarser result, but it is also possible to work a bit more quietly with a neater result. I was not yet familiar with the supplied anti-splinter strip, but this is certainly an addition. It clicks in and out easily, and really ensures a neater result.

    Normally I don't use a vacuum cleaner with a jigsaw, but I was curious if my vacuum cleaner would fit. The Kärcher vacuum cleaner I have fits perfectly.

    I think angle cutting is a new system from Bosch, because it doesn't yet work as we might expect. The plateau must be adjusted with a screw, but no tools are included for this. The red sliding system in which the saws can be stored cannot remain in the saw platform when the saw is at the most inclined position. Small beauty flaws with which Bosch can still win some credits.

    All in all, the saw is highly recommended for anyone considering buying it.
