Stop reading now and buy it already!
I'd been looking at this tool for a while. I've got the bigger single battery version and have loved that for a couple years. I watched the video on AvE where he tore this down. The tool even impressed him! When you need a reciprocating saw for this tight spaces, this is your tool. If you were to only buy one for those occasional jobs, this would suffice for sure. Just buy it already...

Excellent reciprocating saw
Fantastic well built compact saw with same power as regular size. Great on battery life too. Only issue is you have to make sure the blade is held properly as sometimes it seems like its in and it pops out. Not a deal breaker… Just give it a tug after to make sure it doesn’t come out and you’re good.

I have used this mostly as a pruner and it works great. Its small and easy to handle and position. Economically, it has a nice feel in the hands and not too heavy. Perfect for my uses.

This is the one to get. Powerful, compact (fits between joists), and has a light. My previous one was full-sized and had brushes. I worked it to death over 10 years. I did try the other compact one, and that was a joke -wimpy and wouldn’t fit between joists sideways.

Makita, a pioneer in brushless motor technologyMakita, 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.See Full Product Description
