        Great cordless saw, I have the cord Makati tool and this has all the power needed. Changing the bladed is so easy compared to the cord model. You can not go wrong with this saw.

          Comments about Makita 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion Reciprocating Saw (Bare Tool):

          Even though it is a refurbished tool, it looked brand new and seems to work flawlessly! My only negative is that the saw was just thrown into a box, there was no packing material for protection. It did arrive with no damage however.
          Works just like a plug in saw without the cord!
          I am using the smaller 1.5ah batteries and it still works well just less run time.
          The toolless blade change is great!

          Warranty Information

          Makita LXT Lithium-ion Tool Warranty

          The Makita LXT Lithium-ion Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita ® 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion Industrial Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Every Makita 18V and 14.4V LXT Lithium-Ion tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. The Makita LXT Lithium-ion battery has a limited one-year warranty. Should any trouble develop during the three-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

          If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at our option, replace) without charge. This warranty does not apply to Makita Accessories, like flashlights.

          This Warranty does not apply where:

        • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
        • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
        • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
        • Alterations have been made to the tool

        • In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the three-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you many also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
