The Makita 18V LXT Brushless Jig Saw (XVJ05Z, tool only) combines precision and power with the efficiency of a brushless motor in a compact design. The XVJ05Z is engineered to deliver the power and performance of a corded jig saw but 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 XVJ05Z features an ergonomically designed barrel grip, which is closer to the work surface for more precise cuts.

The XVJ05Z has 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting for faster and more accurate cuts in a variety of materials. The variable 5-speed control dial (800-3,000 SPM) enables the user to match the speed of the tool to the application. In addition, the efficient 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 brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.

Convenience features include a Òtool-lessÓ blade change system that allows for faster blade installation and removal, On/Off button with a separate lock button for workpiece protection, and dual L.E.D. lights to illuminate the work area. The base bevels and locks from 0° to 45° left or right for more precise bevel cuts. It weighs only 5.0 lbs. with an 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery (sold separately).
