Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abynemsdad Very good saw
This saw cuts very good on many types of cuts and has a quality feel to it,very little vibration compared to my last jigsaw.It comes in a decent case and includes some extras like blades,,and a protective shoe.The soft start feature does feel alittle different at first but didnt take long to get use to it,and my only minor complaint would be that the plastic anti splintering insert is prone to fall out and is easy to lose or damage.Very good jigsaw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Louie great saw!
You get what you pay for. This saw is a little pricey, but I've never regretted buying a quality tool. This Makita is definitely quality! Tool less blade changes, a light, and multiple settings make this a versatile and easy to use tool. I used it to make some scroll cuts on 15 2x10s and it performed excellent. Cutting was effortless and easy to control. My old jig saw would never perform this well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pegavas1 Smooth operator nice straight cut
Ready to use. oscillating blade turns with ease as long as you allow unit to work, push to fast into cut and will bind and move off line. chips blow out of cut area allowing visual of line. have only used on wood, but i'm sure no problems with correct blade to other materials. fits hand well and easy to handle.

Received the Makita Jig Saw. Obviously very excited to use it, however, it hesitates a lot. Once the on button is pressed, more than half the time I either have to shake the jig saw for the motor to turn on or tap it. LED turns on every time I press the on button. I love Makita and have not been disappointed with any other Makita tools I have. I'm pretty sure it's just this particular one and I will be exchanging it.

Works better than the Bosch I had for years. I like everything about it. Blade installation is a breeze.
Cuts plywood with little tearout and cuts metal pipe like I'm sawing through wood. Best tool I have purchased in a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by formerHDguy Makita Jig Saw great, Home Depot not so great
As expected, the Makita 4350FCT is a great jig saw - well made, solid feel and control, quiet, powerful, doesn't bog down, and the included features make using this tool a joy. The only other jig saw that I can compare it to is an old Black and Decker jig saw that I inherited from my father. The differences are night and day. This is my third Makita power tool and they've come through every time - quality products!
The HD shipping is a whole other story...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Last one I'll ever buy!
Since I already own the Makita HP2050 Hammer Drill as well as the 5007 MG Makita saw, choosing the Makita brand name for a jig saw was a no brainer. I am a tough-on-tools type person. I use my tools primarely for home repair and at home projects, and like my tools to perform flawlessly when needed. Makita has outlasted and out performed any other brand ie B&D; Skil, or Bosh. Would highly recomend this product to someone who wants a one time lasting buy on a great tool.

I've cut wood, plexiglass, and metal and find the weight and variable speed control work for me.
