Makita XRJ05Z LXT 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Brushless Reciprocating Saw (Tool Only)

Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Reciprocating Saw (Tool Only). It has an electronically-controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application, and is powered by the industry's fastest charging 18V lithium-ion batteries (sold separately). With Makita, users can remain in one battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18V batteries on the XRJ05Z as they use across the Makita 18V LXT cordless tool line-up.
The XRJ05Z is equipped with efficiency features for faster cutting. The long 1-1/4" stroke length increases cutting efficiency, and the refined crank mechanism design minimizes blade deflection and reduces vibration. Convenience features include an L.E.D. light to illuminate the line of cut, a retractable tool hook, and "tool-less" blade change for faster blade installation and removal.
  • Makita-built variable 2-speed brushless motor delivers 0-2,300 (Low) & 0-3,000 (High) strokes per minute and a 1-1/4 in. stroke length for faster cutting
  • Tool-less blade change system allows for faster blade installation and removal for increased productivity
  • Compact and ergonomic design at only 17-1/4 in. long
  • Variable speed trigger for added convenience
  • Weighs only 8.2 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue
  • Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job

much better than the old one
And I loved my old LXT sawzall. It was a beast but it chewed through batteries like they were going out of style. This one runs much longer, the brushless motor is just as controllable if not more so in terms of speed. I do a lot of sawzall "surgery" so that's a big bonus for me. Also, this saw is shorter than my old one, has a light and a rafter hook. ALL things i don't know how I lived without before!

Amazingly good saw
I bought this to replace a Milwaukee cordless after all the batteries failed. The Makita system is great because the batteries are superior. I have a corded Makita recipe-saw that I don't like very much, so I had my doubts about this one, but I have committed to the Makita cordless system. This saw surprised me with its power and compact ergonomic design. Great purchase!
