Makita tools are already a popular topic of discussion on ToolSelect.com, and that’s only going to grow with the release of the new 12V max lithium-ion cordless recipro-saw kit.
This particular Makita reciprocating saw is powered by a variable-speed motor with 0-3,300 strokes per minute with a ½” length stroke intended to make cutting faster. The kit includes the recipro saw, two recipro-saw blades, one Energy Star-qualified battery charger and two 12V max lithium ion batteries.
“The new 12-volt max lithium-ion cordless recipro saw is a powerful and compact solution for cutting applications including PVC and ABS pipe, EMT, drywall, wood and more,” said Ethan Haughawout, product manager of cordless products with Makita. “With the Makita-exclusive dual-position trigger, the end user can decide between a paddle switch or traditional trigger switch grip, depending on the application, for maximum control during the cut.”
Makita designed the tool, which is 14 inches long and weighs 2.6 pounds, for one-handed operation, and incorporated the dual-position trigger in an attempt to increase versatility for each user and application.
The recipro saw is also available as part of a new two-piece combo kit along with a 12V max lithium-ion 3/8” driver-drill, and includes all the accessories from the recipro kit plus a contractor bag.
“Makita tools always interest our users,” says Gerry Barnaby, director of excitement with ToolSelect. “Tool enthusiasts are constantly looking for the newest innovations from all manufacturers, and we’re looking forward to the discussion this new Makita reciprocating saw inspires..”
