Makita 4350FCT Top Handle Jig Saw with L.E.D. Light
Makita’s entry comes in with a 6.3 amp motor, a little lighter than the other jigsaws we’ve looked at but also has the lowest noise level in its class and 40 percent less tool vibration. The motor is variable speed from 800-2,800 strokes per minute, providing a one inch stroke. An electronic speed control has also been included to maintain cutting speed even under load. To make it easier to see the cut line, Makita has also added an LED headlight and personally that’s a feature I really appreciate. The blade clamp is tool-less for quick and easy blade changes and the built-in blower works to keep the cutting path clear for accurate cuts. A rubber overmolded handle keeps the user comfortable during operation.
