Makita 4350CT/2 720W 240V Jigsaw
A great jigsaw!
I'm a bit of a fan of Makita power tools, although mainly had experience with their 18V cordless range previously. Having read several other positive reviews, I had high expectations of this jigsaw.
So far I have not been disappointed! It has happily sliced through every type of wood that I've thrown at it - although admittedly I've not been using it that long, and haven't tried it on any metal sheets yet. It certainly seems to be built to last - but I was expecting nothing less from Makita!
Very pleased so far.

Good solid tool. Cuts through effortlessly. Simple to use and great blade change.

Excellent as always.
Makita appear to be leading the way with innovation, performance, reliability and price.

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.
