18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Jig Saw, Tool Only

  • COMPACT : Most compact and lightweight D-Handle Jig Saw in Makita LXT class; weighs only 3.8 lbs. (tool only)
  • ACCURACY : Variable speed trigger, speed dial and soft no-load mode provides more accurate cutting
  • PERFORMANCE : Brushless motor delivers 0 - 3,000 Strokes Per Minute for a variety of cutting applications
  • CONVENIENCE : Tool-less blade change lever allows for convenient blade installation and removal
  • INCLUDES : Tool only (battery and charger not included)

The Makita 18V LXT® Brushless Jig Saw (model XVJ04Z, tool only, battery and charger sold separately) seamlessly combines precision and power with the efficiency of brushless in a more compact design. The XVJ04Z is engineered to deliver the power and performance of a corded jig saw, but without the hassles of a cord. It is ideal for professional woodworkers, cabinetry makers, specialized residential construction workers and any pro-contractor seeking a best-in-class cordless jig saw.

The XVJ04Z has 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting for faster and more accurate cuts in a variety of materials. The variable speed control dial (0-3,000 SPM) enables users to match the speed to the application. In addition, the efficient brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge than similar non-brushless tools. Electronic controls efficiently use battery energy to match the changing demands of the application for increased power and speed when needed. And since there are no carbon brushes, the brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life.

Convenience features include a “tool-less” blade change system that allows for faster blade installation and removal, a large 2-finger variable speed trigger with lock-on button, and dual L.E.D. lights to illuminate the work area. The base bevels and locks from 0° to 45° left or right for more precise bevel cuts. It weighs only 5.2 lbs. with an 18V LXT® 5.0Ah battery (sold separately).

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.

  • 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.
