Makita's Top Handle Jig Saw, Model 4350FCT, combines power and superior feel with substantially less vibration and noise for improved cutting performance.
The 4350FCT has three orbital settings plus straight cutting, powered by a Makita-built 6.3 AMP motor. The electronic variable speed control (800 - 2,800 SPM) is engineered to maintain consistent speed throughout the cut for superior results. The motor is dynamically balanced for 40-percent less tool vibration and lower noise than competitive models. The 4350FCT has a 1-inch length of stroke, with a wood cutting capacity of 5-5/16 inches at 90° and a steel cutting capacity of 3/8 inches at 90°.
Ease-of-use features were also engineered into the 4350FCT. The saw weighs just 5.7 pounds, with an L.E.D. light to illuminate the cutting surface and a built-in dust blower to clear the line of cut for greater visibility. The ergonomically designed rubberized grip on the top handle provides greater comfort and control. The patented "tool-less" blade change system provides fast and easy installation and removal of Tang shank blades. The die-cast aluminum base adjusts up to 45° right or left with a positive stop at 90° for solid cutting performance. An on-board hex wrench is included for fast, accurate bevel adjustments.
The 4350FCT Top Handle Jig Saw is ideal for woodworkers, cabinet makers, remodelers, and general contractors seeking a best-in-class top handle jig saw. The 4350FCT is just another example of Makita's commitment to innovative technology and best-in-class engineering.

The Dewalt has a lever in back that you just swing out to adjust the angle, very convenient. BUT, when trying to grip the saw to get the most stable hold, that lever in back was often a major annoyance. The Makita uses a hex key (which stores in the base) to adjust the base, much less convenient, but, no lever to constantly get in your way:)
The Makita has an L.E.D. light up front, which was a major selling point for me. The thing is, in practice there were very few instances where I actually needed more light with the un-lighted Dewalt. In fact, staring intently at the cut line and out of your periphery seeing the cast shadow made by the Makita's L.E.D. changing hundreds of times per second, it's disorienting/nauseating. Although you could always just cover the light with a piece of tape like I've done...
They both have blowers to keep your cut line visible and free of debris, and they both suck, especially at low speed, but the Dewalt's really sucks. The worst part about the Dewalt is that right below the trigger from the side vents, you can feel this powerful gust of wind blowing on your hand, but in front where the saw-dust is piling up on your cut line, there's just this anemic whisper:( The Makita's blower, while also anemic, did at least a mediocre/acceptable job of keeping the cut line visible:|
Cutting: The Makita cuts better, FACT! But the Dewalt is taller, which may be why I wasn't able to get as straight a cut with it? Still, the green jig just has this tortoise-like consistency and smoothness, that the yellow Dewalt just isn't able to match. It's this extra bit of squirreliness which is why I think the Dewalt is inferior to the Makita.
Finally: The Dewalt came with a MUCH nicer and sturdier case, by comparison the Makita case feels cheap and hollow, with a horribly designed (and painful to hold) handle, cheapo eager to break if you look at them funny latches, and no dedicated area for spare blades. Also, the Makita is a bit quieter, but not much, they still both sound like a shop vac.
Finally finally: I've tried to be fair and blunt in my review. I think there's alot someone could love or hate about either machine, but when it comes to cutting performance the Makita did a better job.
In comparison with that, this one is a dream come true. It's actually more comfortable and a bit lighter than my Hitachi, it's quieter (!), and there's a lot less vibration for your wrists to cope with. And yeah, it cuts straight in 1" hardwoods and plastic stock.
Bottom line is, if you expect to use your jigsaw regularly, or if you need to make precision cuts, shell out the extra $70 and go with Makita. If you just need to make a rough cut every now and then, you will be fine with a lower-cost model, though.
PS. For the price, it's a shame that you need to buy the dust collection attachment separately. Also, as with many other Makita hand tools, the attachment uses some inexplicably weird hose diameter, but nothing that can't be fixed by improvising a bit.
Makita: good power, slightly smaller than the Bosch, shorter power cord compared to Bosch, I really like the LED light, I'm hoping the orbital action was just a fluke and does not indicate overall Makita quality.
Bosch: good power, slightly bigger than Makita, much longer power cord which I like, wish it had the LED light, orbital action worked like a champ, and finally the blade release initially appears the same as the Makita but has a significant difference. When you move blade release the blade comes flying out. Actually I find this a great idea because you don't have to grab a hot blade to remove it. But, just point it in a safe direction and don't lose it.
Overall assuming the Makita isn't defective, they are a close match although I would probably give the edge to Bosch
Very Good! I'm sure I will use it for years. Only Milwaukee and Makita inhabit this range of quality. Above is fein and festool, below are Dewalt Bosch, below that is Rigid Hitachi, then the new Porter Cable, Ryobi etc. (actually I'm not sure where Bosch is going. They are confusing me as of 2014-2015)
