Summary: This jig saw is easy to handle in view of its lighter weight. It cuts as straight a line as any good jig saw. To be sure, cutting an absolutely straight line with any jig saw is near impossible but this saw does a good job and reduces the need for finishing.

Summary: Product works great. If you are looking for a simple jig saw pick this up. It's great for the price. Unlike the other ppl the b!?ch on here I'm going to be honest. If you need something with a stupid LED light go buy a jigsaw with it on.
Summary: I purchased this saw when I couldn't find replacement blades for my 20-yr. old Black & Decker jigsaw. The Makita came highly recommended by my dad who does a lot of woodworking. I couldn't be happier with it. It cuts through 2x4's like butter.
Summary: It's a little heavier than I wanted but it cuts a straight line better than any other jigsaw I've ever owned. The blower that gets the sawdust out of the way and the light that allows you to see what you are cutting makes this the best jigsaw I ever purchased.
