POWER : BL™ Brushless motor is designed to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life
CONVENIENCE : Tool-free shear head rotates 360° for increased comfort in various cutting positions
MANEUVERABILITY : Ergonomically designed pistol grip is optimized to provide increased maneuverability
INCLUDES : Tool only (battery and charger not included)
The 18V LXT Brushless Cordless 18 Ga. Offset Shear (XSJ04Z, tool only) cuts up to 18 ga. mild steel and 20 ga. stainless steel and is capable of radius cuts up to 3”. These new shears are designed for HVAC, drywall, MEP, metal fabrication, metal manufacturing, roofing, and other trade segments.
It is equipped with a Makita-built brushless motor allowing for a high degree of power efficiency with an exceptionally high 3,000 SPM speed. The shear head rotates 360-degrees with an easy push-button for various cutting positions. The trigger can be locked in the on position for continuous use and lock-off position requires two actions to start. This metal shear features a pistol grip for easy maneuverability and cast aluminum gear housing for less weight. The XSJ04 also features a built-in L.E.D. light and belt clip.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita® 18V LXT 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 Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.

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™.
