12V max CXT™ Lithium‑Ion Brushless Cordless Barrel Grip Jig Saw, Tool Only



The Makita 12V max CXT™ Lithium-Ion Brushless Barrel Grip Jig Saw (VJ05Z, tool only, batteries and charger sold separately) delivers fast and efficient cutting, with a compact design that's engineered for ease-of-use and maneuverability. The VJ05Z features a barrel grip design for closer-to-work cutting, and is ideal for woodworkers, cabinet makers, remodelers, and general contractors. Makita 12V max CXT™ Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries provide improved balance and ergonomics over pod-style batteries, and for convenience the batteries include an on-board L.E.D. charge level indicator (batteries sold separately).



The VJ05Z has a compact and ergonomic design with less weight (only 3.9 lbs. with 12V max CXT™ 2.0Ah battery, sold separately). 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 L.E.D. lights, and a built-in dust blower to clear the line of cut.



For longer run time, all 12V max CXT™ cordless tools are also compatible with the 12V max CXT™ Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah battery (BL1041B, sold separately). 12V max CXT™ lithium-Ion batteries are engineered with a Battery Protection Circuit that protects against overloading, over-discharging and over-heating. It's part of the expanding 12V max CXT™ series, combining performance with superior ergonomics in a compact size.
