Tool users who unplug the cord with Makita 18V LXT® experience new levels of convenience, efficiency and productivity. Makita created the 18V Lithium-Ion cordless tool category in 2005, and today it is the world’s largest 18V cordless tool line-up. Makita’s leading technology gives tool users unmatched performance and breadth of line, with innovation in motor and battery technology that is obliterating industry standards – and leaving old thinking behind. With high amp-hour batteries, efficient brushed and brushless motors, and 36V (18V X2) LXT® technology, Makita 18V LXT® tools not only meet corded demands, they can exceed the performance of corded, all while remaining in a single cordless platform powered by the industry's fastest-charging 18V lithium-ion batteries.

The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless 18 Gauge Straight Shear (model XSJ01Z, tool only) combines high speed, compact size and less weight. The XSJ01Z has a Makita-built 4-pole motor for faster cutting, yet it weighs just 5.3 lbs. (with battery, sold separately) for better control in cutting steel and stainless steel sheet metal.
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 XSJ01Z features a Makita-built 4-pole motor that delivers 2,800 strokes per minute (SPM) for faster cutting. The tough double-cut shear design handles up to 18 gauge mild steel and 20 gauge stainless steel for straight or scribe cuts without deforming the material. The swivel shear head rotates 360 degrees for increased cutting options.
Ergonomic Design in a Compact Size
The XSJ01Z weighs just 5.3 lbs. (with battery, sold separately) with a more compact design at 13-3/4” long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. The deep reversible belt-clip attaches to either side for secure attachment to tool belts, and the wrench for head adjustment stows away under the handle for added convenience. The XSJ01Z is also equipped with a lock-off switch that immobilizes the trigger for storage or transport.
Versatile Design for a Range of Applications
The XSJ01Z is a powerful yet compact metal shear built for any professional user seeking a best-in-class compact cordless metal shear for metalworking tasks.
