Product Overview

Details

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.
Features:
  • 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
Includes:
  • LXT 18V Cordless Lithium-Ion Brushless Reciprocating Saw (Tool Only) - MKTNXRJ05Z
  • Reciprocating Saw Blade
  • Tool Only - Batteries and Charger Sold Separately

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!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.

Every Makita® Lithium‐Ion Power Tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita Lithium‐Ion tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide, at Makita's option, a replacement or refund. Each Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during the three‐year period for the Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, return the COMPLETE Power Tool, Battery and/or Charger, 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.
