  • Shop the Woodworking Tools
Makita is a leader in brushless motor technology and the Makita 18-Volt LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Jig Saw (model XVJ02Z, tool only, battery and charger sold separately) seamlessly combines precision and power with the efficiency of brushless. The XVJ02Z is engineered to deliver the power and performance of a corded jig saw 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. It's part of Makita's expanding 18-Volt Lithium-Ion series, the world's largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18-Volt Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18-Volt 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 18-Volt LXT and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
  • Makita built brushless motor and 3 orbital settings plus straight cutting deliver faster and more accurate cuts in a variety of materials
  • Variable 6-speed control dial (800-3,500 SPM) enables user to match the speed to the application
  • Efficient BL brushless motor is electronically controlled to optimize battery energy use for up to 50% longer run time per charge
  • BL brushless motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the BL motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life
  • Electronically controlled BL brushless motor efficiently uses energy to match torque and SPM to the changing demands of the application
  • Tool-less blade change system allows for faster blade installation and removal for increased productivity
  • Large 2-finger variable speed trigger for added convenience with lock-on button
  • Heavy gauge aluminum base for smooth, accurate cutting and added durability
  • Dual LED lights illuminate the work area
  • Weighs only 5.8 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue
  • Compact and ergonomic design at only 10-1/2 in. long
  • Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job
  • Built-in dust blower clears the line of cut for increased accuracy
  • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • Rapid optimum charger communicates with the battery's built-in chip throughout the charging process to optimize battery life by actively controlling current, voltage and temperature (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Rapid optimum charger has a built-in fan to cool the battery for faster, more efficient charging (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Makita technology delivers category-leading charge time so the battery spends more time working and less time sitting on the charger (battery and charger sold separately)
  • Compatible with Makita 18-Volt lithium-ion batteries with a star symbol (battery sold separately)

It's well-balanced, easy to handle and has good power. A corded jig saw may have a little more power, but I really like not having a cord in the way, especially when cutting arcs and circles. I use it with both a 2Ah and a 3 Ah battery. The 3Ah or higher capacity is needed if you're cutting a lot of material thicker than 3/4" ply. The lock/unlock switch (turns the LED light on, too) turns out to be a very good feature - with my older 9.6 volt Makita jig saw, I would sometimes accidentally pull the trigger while repositioning the saw. It's not cheap, but, overall, this saw well exceeds my expectations and is worth the price.
