About Model

Makita’s 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Reciprocating Saw (model XRJ02) delivers faster cutting and demolition performance to the jobsite. The XRJ02 has a high-torque motor with a 1-1/8” stroke that is engineered for a range of cutting and demolition tasks. The LXT® Lithium-Ion Battery makes this reciprocating saw perfect for remote use, where running a cord is not an option.

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.

For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

Makita-Built Motor Engineered for Versatile Power

The XRJ02 features a Makita-built high torque motor with a 1-1/8” stroke that cuts 0-2,900 strokes per minute (SPM) for faster cutting. The XRJ02 has a maximum cutting depth of 5-1/8” for pipe, and 10” into wood (using a 12” blade). Productivity features includes an electric brake and a “tool-less” blade change.

Ergonomic Design in a Compact Size

The XRJ02 weighs just 8.2 lbs. with a more compact design at 19-5/8” long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. In addition, the XRJ02 has a built-in L.E.D. light to illuminate the work area and a retractable hook so the tool remains close by but never in the way.

Versatile Design for a Range of Applications

The XRJ02 is engineered for the pro that wants more features and is perfect for a range of applications including plumbing, flooring, electrical, demolition, and for general contractors who require a best in class engineered cordless reciprocating saw.
