Makita DJV181Z 18V Li-Ion LXT Brushless Cordless Jigsaw - Bare Product Code: 7468J

Dynamic Makita cordless jigsaw with brushless motor technology. As powerful as a mains machine with a barrel grip design, allowing you closer to the work surface for more precise cuts. An innovative motor system reduces the blade speed when no load is detected, allowing you to easily trace the cutting line. The tool also features electronic push power button and variable speed dial for greater flexibility in application. Built-in blower function keeps cut line clear of sawdust. Twin LED work lights illuminate the work piece for added precision, even in poor light conditions. Compatible with Makita LXT Li-ion batteries (1.5Ah, 3.0Ah, 4.0Ah and 5.0Ah).

Makita DJV181Z 18V Li-Ion LXT Brushless Cordless Jigsaw - Bare is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trigger unhappy Reason for 1 star rating is that I'm sending the product back without using so can't really pass comment other than really don't like power on/off button being on side of tool rather than finger trigger mechanism. I do too many short cuts so need instant stop rather than messing about with the side of the tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I was surprised at how comfortable it was to use, going from the d handle to the barrel handle for me made such a difference, fits nicely in the hand and I like how they have added a power button on both sides of the tool, easy saw blade changes with a lift of a lever makes it so easy to swap out a blade quickly, came with a selection of saw blades which was nice, little bit heavy but it feels as though you have more control with it, overall I’m very pleased with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita Cordless Jigsaw As a current owner of several Makita cordless tools this complemented my collection. Being able to buy bare also saved on cost. The cutting precision is far better than my old corded machine, the lights highlighting the cutting area are a bonus. Dust does tend to gather around the cutting zone but with a quick blow or using the dust extract it's no deal breaker. The machine as identified by others is on the heavy side but it sits well on the surface being cut. I can imagine it would bust the biceps after a while if cutting at height. I don't have any qualms recommending this kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and accurate Surprised how good it is, much better than my previous mains powered machine. Powerful motor, cuts accurately and cleanly. Blade change is very simple and easy. Much easier to follow a straight line than with my previous mains machine. It is heavy, which is good for keeping the vibration low and keeping the machine anchored down to the workpiece, but will give some arm ache used at height after a while. Twin lights work well, but benefits from a dust extractor as it can accumulate around the blade area. Wasn't sure about the body shape, but took the plunge and have to say I do prefer it now having used it (compared to the traditional upright style).
