Must have Jig Saw
I bought this to replace 14.4 volt Makita. I have owned the 14.4 volt Makita jig saw for over 5 years. I also have a Bosch corded saw which I thought was the best saw available but I found myself going to the Makita time after time when I needed to use a jig saw. The 14.4 had plenty of power this has more. Changing blades is so simple with the 18 volt that you would not believe it. Simple blade change, strong and powerful. I am impressed with this tool. Buy it, you will not regret it. [...]

As Good as it Gets
Was amazed to find that this saw is every bit the equal to my (very excellent) Bosch corded model. While the old-standby corded Bosch is still one of my favorite tools, this Makita is in every way its equal, but cordless!! It cuts aggressively, but is smooth as silk; the blade clamp is super-easy to use, and has yet to loosen up in use. I couldn't be happier unless the contours cut themselves!

Quality you can feel!
Love the feel and smooth powerful motor, clear bottom gives great visibility, quick blade change is great because I store in the bag and don't want to break blades!

Power!
This cordless jig saw is awesome. I decided to upgrade my 10 year old cordless 14.4 volt DeWalt drill\driver last year to the 18 volt Makita LXT series tools and have been thrilled with every purchase. The BJV180 is every bit as powerful as my Bosch 1587AVS corded jig saw and includes a light which is much appreciated by my aging eyes. I have not been able to run through a complete battery yet, so I would say that the battery life is more than adequate to handle most jobs.

Great tool
I use this jig saw for all of my small and scroll cutting. I have an older Porter Cable which I will use for large projects, but this Makita cordless is just as good. I really like having the light too.
