Summary: This tool is awesome!!! The 4350FCT makes great cuts super fast. It is easy to use and does a great job. As a carpenter I would recommend this jig saw to everyone. The only thing I don't care for is the variable speed adjustment is on the back side and a bit hard to adjust while cutting.
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).
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.

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.
