Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Recip Saw As a contractor, I am often involved with remodeling...and a good recip. saw is worth its weight! My long time standby has been my corded Milwaukee. I was pretty dubious when I first got the Makita 18V LXT saw. I have been so happy with my other LXT tools that I thought I'd give it a try. I haven't been disappointed! This tool coupled with the Lion battery is awesome! It has the power and stamina to handle just about anything I need a recip. saw for. The quick release blade lock works great - even with gloves on. Old red stays in the truck most of the time now! August 11, 2010
