18V LXT® Brushless Compact One-Handed Recipro Saw

18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Compact One‑Handed Recipro Saw, Tool Only

  • COMPACT : Compact and lightweight for one-handed operation
  • PERFORMANCE : Up to 55% faster cutting
  • COMFORT : Low vibration design for extended user comfort; up to 40% less vibration
  • VERSATILITY : Ideal for overhead, tight spaces and a wide range of cutting applications
  • INCLUDES : Tool only (battery and charger not included)

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 7/8” 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 14-3/8” 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.

It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. 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 a 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.

  • Star Protection Computer Controls™
  • Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.

  • XPT™ Extreme Protection Technology
  • When the job takes your Makita tool into harsh conditions, Makita Extreme Protection Technology (XPT™) provides added protection. XPT™ is a series of integrated seals engineered to channel away dust and water for increased durability. Wherever the job takes you, Makita tools equipped with XPT™ are engineered for increased durability and longer tool life.
