Cut the cord but keep the performance with this 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Recipro Saw from Makita. The BL Brushless motor matches torque and RPM to the application so you always have enough power for the job. The 1-1/4 in. stroke length increases cutting efficiency, and the crank mechanism design minimizes blade deflection while reducing vibration. Convenience features include an L.E.D. light to illuminate the line of cut, a retractable tool hook and tool-less blade change for faster blade installation and removal. The battery has a fast charge time so you spend more time working and less time waiting.

Couldn’t recommend the 5.0 Ah batteries more. Although they are heavier- suck it up, it builds muscle ;). I love that I can count on the quick charge time and how long each battery lasts. Depending what tool, I can go 2-4 hours on one battery using constantly. I now have three of them and watch for deals. I couldn’t be happier.
Good process easy at pick up , batteries work great
Great Tool. Been using a corded Milwaukee for a long time. Decided to try Makita. Glad I did. Would buy another if needed.Purchased the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Recipro Saw with 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion 5.0 Ah Battery.Great Stuff.
The battery so far has meet my expectations
Plenty of power for DIY/pro work and trimming branches.
I’ve been using it to dismantle 1/16” stainless tubing with carbide blades and it just eats. Also used to to turn a geo metro into a convertible and the geo stood no chance. This saw was a great buy.
Best batteries on the market
Very impressed with this battery’s runtime and power!
After the $150 sticker shock for this battery subsided, I have been completely satisfied with its longevity while using it to drive deck screws. Lasted a solid 6 hours with continuous use and the charger had it ready to go again in roughly 30 minutes.Highly recommend!
Great Brand. Great product. Plan to have this for decades.
Saw it’s great cuts like butter
The battery (fuel) gauge is a great upgrade
Fantastic tool, very powerful, not too heavy, excellent for demo work. I’m invested in the whole Makita cordless system and have zero complaints so far.
Easy to use convenient and powerful enough to get the job done
Last much longer than the 3.0. A bit pricey though
Works great, feels solid.
This is my husband’s favorite drill. I bought him the 5.0Ah battery and he loves the extended time, not having to stop to charge it is a game changer.
Makita one of the best quality tools out there
