Summary: I am a professional carpenter and general contractor. I bought this to help install prefinished kitchen cabinets and crowns. I based my decision on the other reviews. I don't typically write reviews however this thing is great.
Summary: Love this baby. Well constructed, solid, powerful, easy to use, great battery life - everything you need in a cordless jig saw and nothing you don't. I buy all Makita 18-volt tools so I can share batteries, and haven't been disappointed in any of them.
Summary: This a good quality product. It runs quietler than I expected, that I think is a result of strong materials and quality bearings. The only limitation is that Makita only supplies belts up to 240 grit.
