Light weight and powerful!

BigPapi, Amazon
19 February 2015
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time considering a jig saw. I was looking for a D barrel that is light weight, yet powerful enough to make jobs a little bit easier. I settled on the Makita after holding several other units (e.g., bosch, Milwaukee, porter cable). What I liked about the Makita, was that it is smaller than the other jig saws, which makes it pretty darn light.

The saw itself is awesome and smooth

Notabiker, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Really smooth cutting action but as soon as you get it make sure to do some long test cuts as I found out too late that mine doesn't cut parallel to the base plate, not even close actually, about 3/8 inch off from front to rear actually. The saw itself is awesome and smooth, I've used it to cut 3/16" steel plate into 7" circles for a spare tire holder I built and to cut some aluminum plate for a radio install.

Very good saw overall

Kabone, Amazon
18 October 2014
  • Summary: Very good saw overall, I would give it a 5-star rating if not because that little plastic piece fell off on the 1st use, it is so useless that I did not even notice when it went missing. As others mentioned before, the case is very cheap, but for me it doesn't matter that much because I only use it at home.

The jig saw is great - the only concern I have is the small ...

Judith A. Dunlop, Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: The jig saw is great - the only concern I have is the small clear plastic blade guide. It does not stay in place, and pops out very easily. Each time I put it back in it stays for awhile, but then pops back out again. It has already been cut a bit by the blade, and I only hope that it is replaceable. Other than that I like the jigsaw very much.

  • Summary: " A great, sturdy jigsaw, from the trusted trade brand Makita. The best features of this jigsaw for me are; *Easy blade change, a sliding mechanism releases the blade for quick swaps- no faffing about with Allen keys. *The job light is great for making sure you can clearly see what you are doing (thats the only difference between this and the more expensive 4350CT jigsaw B&Q sell, buy this one!).

Quick blade exchange, nice pleasant blue color -- No laser :-(

David S., Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: OK - so here are my thoughts on this device from a man with limited craftsmanship skills.... Pros: 1. Very quick exchange of blades 2. Powerful 3. Nice blue color, very pleasant to the eyes. Cons: 1. No laser guide. I wish it had a laser or something to help guide the cuts. I don't know about anyone else but when I try to do curved cuts it looks like a 2 year old writing their name.

Solid Tool

Stuart Osedo, Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: I previously bought a Bosch jigsaw as it is a proven brand and I own several different tools but it wouldn't track a straight line even while using a guide... don't know if I got a lemon. The Makita 4350 solved this problem.It's a solid jigsaw and the quick blade change feature is great. It feels good under my hand and I'll get the accessories to maximize it's full potential.
