If you’re in the market for a new jigsaw and looking for a change in brand, then look no further as we’ve got the perfect solution. As today we’ll be talking about all things Makita, and in particular the Makita Jigsaw.

There’s no doubt about it, Makita as a brand is not as big or as popular in the USA as some of the more established brands like Bosch, Milwaukee, Dewalt, Skil etc.

But, don’t let that deter you from purchasing what might be one of the best cordless jigsaws you’ll own, in the form of the Makita DJV180Z 18V LXT Cordless JIG SAW.
