Brushless Cordless Reciprocating Saw

The 18V LXT¨ Compact One-Handed Recipro Saw (XRJ08Z) is a versatile cutting solution that combines variable speed and low vibration with the convenience of one-handed operation for faster and more efficient cutting.

The XRJ08 delivers 0 - 3,100 strokes per minute combined with a 7/8Ó stroke length for up to 55% faster cutting*. It offers a low-vibration design that reduces operator fatigue with up to 40% less vibration (when compared to model number XRJ07ZXB). The loop-shaped handle offers rigidity for improved cutting efficiency. It can perform Up to 90 cuts in 2x10 lumber, and up to 50 cuts in 1" schedule 80 steel pipe with a 5.0Ah battery installed (battery and charger sold separately).

The One-Handed Recipro Saw is engineered with a low-vibration design that features up to 40% less vibration**. The XRJ08 is equipped with a counterweight mechanism that contributes to lower vibration levels when cutting. Low vibration levels contribute to longer tool use time for the user.

Convenience features include a compact and ergonomic design of only 14-3/8Ó long making it ideal for working in tight spaces and overhead applications. To aid in reducing operator fatigue, the One-Handed Recipro Saw weighs only 5.5 lbs. (with battery, sold separately). It features a tool-less blade changing system to minimize downtime between blade changes. It has a built-in L.E.D. light that illuminates the workspace and a rubberized soft grip for increased comfort.
