Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Keeping up my faith in Makita I have owned and used many Makita tools over the years, with some a couple of decades old. It was nice to find the quality of this tool meeting my expectations. The included case is solid, and nicely leaves enough room to leave a blade attached. One rather underrated feature is the blade lock. No muss, no fuss, no complicated levers and rollers and latches - just like your favorite recip saw, twist to release. After it gently ejects the blade (spring-loaded, but not so much you lose the blade), the lock STAYS OPEN, allowing you to fit a new blade with one hand. Once inserted, the lock clicks shut around the blade, giving you a positive indication that it is ready to go. Short answer: this is a sturdy tool, with a blissfully simple and intuitive blade lock. Thank you, Makita. August 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy duty, comfortable and good performance. orbital cut is fantastic! cuts through a 2x4 in 1 to 2 seconds. wish it included more blades, 1 is never enough. very pleased so far. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gettin' Jiggy With It!! I was hesitant to buy this saw. I wanted a really good saw and was willing to pay a lot of money and thought I'd have to spend at least $200. However, I took this saw home and it cut through 1/2" plywood like butter. I couldn't ask for a better jig saw. This thing does not even remotely bog down while cutting. Amazing power. I don't know why anyone would need a more powerful jig saw. September 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome jigsaw!!! I bought this saw to replace a cheap black and decker that I had since I was going to be doing a kitchen remodel. I am thoroughly impressed with this saws power and simplicity. I cut through 3/4" oak, plywood, and cement board using this saw while completing my remodel. I would recommend this saw to anyone, it is a great purchase. April 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jv0600k Jigsaw I purchased this jigsaw because I wanted one that had the toolless blade change. While looking at the reviews, I noticed that the ones I looked at under $100 there were many complaints as to how they worked, or the features they had. I have only had this one for 1 week, but for the use it got so far, it seems that I purchased the right one.. It is everything in Makita quality. It cuts through treated 2x6's very fast and without and trouble. It would be nice if it had a light though. It is a keeper. April 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this saw Up until now I was using my grandfather's old saw, and this was quite the upgrade. I am very pleased with the performance and the tool in general. It's my first Makita and I am loving it so far. I use it more than I should, to be honest. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home shop/ hobbyist I use this jigsaw for holiday decorations and it works great. I've tried some cheaper brands and this saw is much better. I use it about twice a month and I'm very happy. 3/4 inch plywood is the thickest wood I've used it on and the saw cut through it like a hot knife through butter. I also use on 3/4" SCH 40 PVC and it cuts with no problems. For a moderately priced tool you can't go wrong I could even see pros getting use from the tool. March 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great jig saw! There were several reasons why I bought, and love, this jig saw: For one, it feels very safe to use compared to my old jig saw. When I grab the handle to pick up the saw, my hand doesn't accidentally hit the trigger because they built in plenty of room to grab it further back on the handle. I'm petite (about 112 lbs) and needed something that wasn't too heavy and this one is just right. The Makita is powerful and seems quite well made. It's a real pleasure to use. We bought a set of Bosch blades to go with it and they are a great complement to the jig saw (which is the 'T-shank' type of blade). It wasn't the most nor least expensive, but seemed to be a good value. I haven't used all the settings or features yet, but was pleased to be able to get right to work with this tool for my basic jig saw project needs! August 8, 2013
