Solid build, solid performer

"I bought this to replace a trusty Bosch green model that I'd had for a few years, but just wasn't up to the job I had lined up for it - to cut notches into 4" redwood fence posts. When paired up with some 100mm DeWalt jigsaw blades, this Makita jigsaw completely exceeded my expectations - with the pendulum action turned up, it cut through the wood with minimum effort.
It feels like a solid piece of kit - no gimmiks, nothing unnecessary - a good weight and well balanced. The tool-free blade change mechanism is well designed and quick and easy to use.
It's not cheap, but I can't imagine that there are many jobs that this wouldn't be able to cope with...highly recommended."

Best Jigsaw I have ever used
21-Mar-2013
By
, Northamptonshire
"Easy to change the blade, no keys, just your fingers.
I even tried this on a four inch thick piece of pine. Okay, it wouldnt cut through the 4 inches in one go, but the amount it did cut was perfectly square and it didnt bounce back as I was cutting either.
It will also cut a very small circle without binding.
The only negative thing I found was the plastic part around the blade (on the base plate) was very quickly damage so now I use it without. Doesnt need it, it still cuts perfectly.
Easy to use, no excessive vibration
I would reccomend this to anyone.

"Used it for cutting laminated chipboard- very little splintering. Cut 50mm thick sftwood alond and across the grain-both cuts clean and straight with only minimal blade deflection."

"This is my first 'proper' jigsaw and as a previous reviewer has said the difference between this and the cheap ones I've used before is incredible - I wish I bought this ages ago
It feels right as soon as you pick it up. The controls feel positive, as do the adjustments (especially base plate adjustments - which can be very poor on cheap saws). The blade changing is really good too
In operation it is quiet, smoothe and just does what you want it to do, without having to fight it
The spec is better than most saws I looked at in this price range (power, depth of cut etc)
If you can afford the extra I'd say go with this jigsaw everytime."

"I'm a big fan of Makita and have some great drills from them. I'm less impressed with this. It is a jig saw, so I'm not expecting perfect cuts, but the blade on this wanders all over the place. It also jumps out of the support/roller fairly often.
This could be a problem with the (supplied) blade, but I don't think so.
It also does not come with a guide rail, this is an 'optional' accessory, apparently. There is nothing on this site to suggest there would be one, I've just had a few jigsaws and would not expect something so fundamental to be missing (I don't consider this to be optional, so I didn't look for it, my fault.)
Maybe it isn't included as there is no point, given the blade wanders all over the place?
That said, there are holes for the guide and it does go through things like butter. If you are less concerned about roughly straight lines, more around getting through material as quick as possible, then this machine is fine.

a ok jig saw

"I am a joiner and use my tools quite a lot I had two of the previous model they both lasted about four years this will probably need replacing before it is two years old there is a lot of wear on the shaft so it has lost a lot of accuracy it also had a lot less use than the other ones as I prefer to use the 18 V DeWalt jig saw now"
