Makita VJ05R1J Description

The Makita 12V max CXT Lithium-Ion Brushless barrel grip jig saw kit (VJ05R1J) delivers fast and efficient cutting, with a compact design that’s engineered for ease-of-use and maneuverability. The VJ05R1J features a barrel grip design for closer-to-work cutting, and is ideal for woodworkers, cabinet makers, remodelers, and general contractors. The kit includes two 12V 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 L.E.D. charge level indicator. The VJ05R1J has a compact and ergonomic design with less weight (only 3.9 lbs. with 12V max CXT 2.0 Ah 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 L.E.D. lights, and a built-in dust blower to clear the line of cut.
