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 18V X2 LXT® (36V) 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.

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™.
Makita’s 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Cordless Jig Saw (model XVJ03) seamlessly combines precision and power with the lowest overall weight in its class. The XVJ03 has a range of precision and comfort features for precise jig saw cutting performance, including less vibration and lower noise for more control and comfort.
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 XVJ03 features a Makita-built high torque motor that produces a 1” stroke and 0-2,600 strokes per minute (SPM) for fast and efficient cutting. In addition, the XVJ03 has lower vibration and less noise for more control and comfort. The XVJ03 has four position cut settings (3 orbital and one straight) for fast and efficient cutting in all applications and a “tool-less” push-in lock system for quick blade changes. The blade roller guide is positioned close to the work piece for precision accuracy in straight and bevel cuts.
Ergonomic Design in a Compact Size
The XVJ03 weighs just 6.1 lbs. with a more compact design at 10-1/8” long and an ergonomic shape that fits like a glove for reduced operator fatigue. The two-finger variable speed trigger switch is easy to handle, even with a gloved hand. XVJ03 is also equipped with a built-in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area for more efficient work.
Versatile Design for a Range of Applications
The XVJ03 has less noise, less vibration and less weight for more control and comfort. It is engineered for professional woodworkers, cabinetry makers, specialized residential construction workers and any pro-contractor who requires a best-in-class engineered cordless jig saw.
