Details

The Makita 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Barrel Grip Jig Saw (tool only, batteries and charger sold separately) delivers fast and efficient cutting, with a compact design that’s engineered for ease-of-use and maneuverability. It features a barrel grip design for closer-to-work cutting, and is ideal for woodworkers, cabinet makers, remodelers, and general contractors. Makita 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries provide improved balance and ergonomics over pod-style batteries, and for convenience the batteries include an on-board L.E.D. charge level indicator (batteries sold separately).
The Brushless Barrel Grip Jig Saw has a compact and ergonomic design with less weight (only 3.9 lbs. with 12V max CXT 2.0Ah battery, sold separately). The efficient Makita-built brushless motor is engineered for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The variable 5-speed control dial (800-3,000 RPM) enables the user to match the speed to the application, and the 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting provide added versatility. The soft start suppresses start-up reaction for better accuracy, and the no-load speed reduction feature automatically reduces SPM for more accurate cutting starts. Convenience features include “tool-less” blade changes, large 2-finger variable speed trigger with lock-on button, dual L.E.D. lights, and a built-in dust blower to clear the line of cut.
For longer run time, all 12V max CXT cordless tools are also compatible with the 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah battery (BL1041B, sold separately). 12V max CXT lithium-Ion batteries are engineered with a Battery Protection Circuit that protects against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating. It’s part of the expanding 12V max CXT series, combining performance with superior ergonomics in a compact size.

Surprisingly powerful for a 12 V Jigsaw
I bought this to complement my 18 V jigsaw but having used it a few times in both plywood and solid wood and I have been pretty impressed by the performance to the point that I have hard time thinking when this wouldn't be appropriate. Really the only thing that I don't like about this is that the battery life is not great (even when using a 4 Ah battery). Here are the things I like about this saw:

1. It seems to me that there is a blower that combined with the LED keep the cut line really clean.
2. I prefer variable speed on a dial as it makes cuts more repeatable.
3. No load detection keeps the blade speed down when not cutting.
