Product Overview

VJ06 R1 JThe Makita 12-Volt max CXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Top Handle Jig Saw Kit (VJ06R1J) delivers fast and efficient cutting, with a compact design that's engineered for ease-of-use and maneuverability. The VJ06R1J features a top handle design and is ideal for woodworkers, cabinet makers, remodelers, and general contractors. The kit includes two 12-Volt max CXT Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries for improved balance and ergonomics over pod-style batteries. For added convenience the batteries include an on-board LED charge level indicator. The VJ06R1J has a compact and ergonomic design with less weight (only 4.1 lbs. with 12-Volt max CXT 2.0Ah battery). The efficient Makita-built brushless motor is engineered for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer tool life. The variable 5-speed control dial (800-3,000 RPM) enables the user to match the speed to the application, and the 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting provide added versatility. The soft start suppresses start-up reaction for better accuracy, and the no-load speed reduction feature automatically reduces SPM for more accurate cutting starts. Convenience features include tool-less blade changes, large 2-finger variable speed trigger with lock-on button, dual LED lights, and a built-in dust blower to clear the line of cut.

I made the move to Makita brushless, some in 12V and some in 18V. For my jigsaw needs, this one fits the bill perfectly. Plenty of power and duration, yet light and compact.

I made the mistake of assuming that this was compatible with my Makita drill driver. The clips to the case are not very easy to use.

    Really loving the 12v series!!! Last forever, and plenty of power and precision. Plus comes withe a 1 generic up-cut jigsaw blade, which was nice. Read instructions for oscillator and speed variables—important to note, and these are not on all jig-saws, so really nice!!

    Ideal for the typical home owner. Haven't completely put it through its paces with different materials etc, but if the way it handles 3/4 inch maple is any indication, I expect it to perform equally well. It's well designed and user friendly.

    I needed a jigsaw for occasional use but wanted a good modern jigsaw. I tried the recommended corded saws but wanted something smaller and lighter. I have had the Makita 12V drill and driver for years and love them so when I saw a good price on this I jumped on it. Small, light, smooth cutting saw.
