Product Overview

  • Part of the expanding 18V LXT line of cordless tools
  • Star Protection for longer tool and battery life
  • Has Extreme Protection Technology designed to increase durability
Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technology and battery innovation, combines both in the 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Recipro Saw (tool only). It has an electronically-controlled BL Brushless motor that matches torque and RPM to the application and is powered by the industry’s fastest charging 18V lithium-ion batteries (sold separately). With Makita, users can remain in one battery platform, using the same fast-charging 18V batteries on the XRJ05Z as they use across the Makita 18V LXT cordless tool line-up. The XRJ05Z is equipped with efficiency features for faster cutting. The long 1-1/4 in. stroke length increases cutting efficiency and the refined crank mechanism design minimizes blade deflection and reduces 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. 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 and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
  • Makita-built variable 2-speed brushless motor delivers 0-2,300 (Low) & 0-3,000 (High) strokes per minute and a 1-1/4 in. stroke length for faster cutting
  • Tool-less blade change system allows for faster blade installation and removal for increased productivity
  • Variable speed trigger for added convenience
  • Compact and ergonomic design at only 17-1/4 in. long
  • Weighs only 8.2 lbs. with battery (battery not included) for reduced operator fatigue
  • Rubberized soft grip handle provides increased comfort on the job
  • Reinforced fixed shoe for added durability
  • Large two-finger variable speed trigger for operator convenience
  • Electric brake for maximum productivity
  • Refined crank mechanism design minimizes blade deflection and reduces vibration
  • Extreme protection technology (XPT) is engineered for improved dust and water resistance for operation in harsh conditions
  • Equipped with star protection computer controls to protect against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating
  • 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)
  • Battery and charger sold separately
  • 3-year limited warranty
  • Only use genuine Makita batteries and chargers

In the specifications, it says it has an adjustable shoe. In the overview, it says it has a fixed shoe. Which is it?
Asked by: Sparky
There is an adjustable shoe. A lever underneath flips down, and the shoe can slide out an inch or so, exposing fresh blade.

What's the difference between Model# XRJ03Z XRJ05Z?? Except for the motor being brushless is there any other difference?

Asked by: Manny
The XRJ03Z has a push button foot release. This unit only delivers maximum of 2900 strokes per minute. The XRJ05Z has a lever foot release. This unit has a low switch which delivers 2900 strokes per minute and high switch which delivers 3000 strokes per minute. This unit also has an arm that swings out from the side so you can easily hang it from your pocket or tool box for quick easy access. You can also set the speed setting between high and low to lock the switch.

Had it about a month, most recent use was on a demo project to cut through headers, remove nail-embedded studs, cut through several aluminum window frames, worked great for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ordered online and delivered in 2 days just in time... Ordered online and delivered in 2 days just in time for a difficult and dirty job. Battery lasted much longer than expected and saw was very handy and smooth running. Only problem I had to buy a new battery charger as the old one I had for other tools did not meet the spec. for this new battery.
