18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Barrel Grip Jig Saw
Makita is a leader in brushless motor technology, and the Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Barrel Grip Jig Saw (model XVJ01Z, tool only, battery and charger sold separately) seamlessly combines precision and power with the efficiency of brushless.
The XVJ01Z is engineered to deliver the power and performance of a corded jig saw — without the hassles of a cord. It is ideal for professional woodworkers, cabinetry makers, specialized residential construction workers and any pro-contractor seeking a best-in-class cordless jig saw.
The XVJ01Z features an ergonomically designed barrel grip, which is closer to the work surface for more precise cut. The brushless motor is engineered for efficiency, with a variable speed control dial (800-3,500 SPM) that enables users to match the speed to the application. Added features include 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting for faster and more accurate cuts in a variety of materials. In addition, the efficient BL™ Brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. And since there are no carbon brushes, the BL™ Brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.
Convenience features include a tool-less blade change system that allows for faster blade installation and removal, and a large 2-finger variable speed trigger with lock-on button. The heavy-gauge aluminum base is engineered for smooth, accurate cutting and added durability, and the dual L.E.D. lights illuminate the work area. It weighs only 5.5 lbs. with battery (sold separately).
