Faster,stronger, I recommend this product I love makita tool and this new jigsaw work perfect

I've only had this tool for a month but I'm very impressed. It's well-balanced, easy to handle and has good power. A corded jig saw may have a little more power, but I really like not having a cord in the way, especially when cutting arcs and circles. I use it with both a 2Ah and a 3 Ah battery. The...

Great for what I use it for I would recommend this product for home doers

Its awesome!didnt want to spend that much but it was worth it

This drill is smooth, quiet, fast, and easy to change blades without tools.

Loved it it's surprise me how it work. And how great it is. Show it too my boss and he loved it.

The saw came as described. Easy to load blade mechanism. Works efficiently.

Rating provided by a verified purchaser

This jigsaw is a failure . Is like driving the car, and somebody else pushing the gas pedal for you.

Perfect jigsaw for the work I do, just wished it would blow the sawdust out of the way better than it does. Also wished it came in a package deal with a charger, battery and case for this price. Ended up buying the Makita 15-1/2 in. Small Interlocking Case to store this and the Cordless Multi-Too...

I have two Bosch commercial corded jigsaws that I love, and this battery-driven Makita gem is as good as either - plus it has a very convenient work-light that is just frosting on an otherwise superior cake! Love it!!

Having no cord to plug in is very convenient. I changed from my corded Bosch jig saw to this Makita cordless. The Bosch feels sturdier and stronger, but not having to always find an outlet makes this Makita worth every bit.

Light and easy to use. With a coping jig performed perfectly on crown molding. Cost is high when compared to other Makita cordless products which in my mind lowers its value to four stars.

this is a well thought out product, it has smooth operation, easy to change blades, I like the power it has, the batteries charge fast, the light is an excellent feature. when I rip cut some aluminum extrusion it performed flawlessly and quickly. I would definitely recommend this product.

So easy a caveman can do it... and me. Great jigsaw, easy to use and control, built tough like all makita tools

Best cordless tool I've purchased, smooth, powerful, quiet, great run time, etc. Amazon quality and feel, Makita just keeps getting better.

Makita batteries and over all performance can't be beat . I own and use about every brand and am totally convinced

This was a gift to my son who loves it. It arrived as described a day ahead of schedule. It has plenty of torque to cut through boards and plywood. The scrolling mechanism works great on curves and linear cuts in tight areas. Expensive but worth the extra cost if you are using it for detailed, heavy...

The saw will not hold generic saw blade straight or keep the blades in the shaft. The blades drop out.

Works as expected

will this work with the BL1830 battery

Yes, absolutely you can use the BL 1830. It will work. The LXT tools are designed to use the new BL1830B (or BL 1840B or 50B) batteries because the tool and the battery give feedback to each other for optimal run time and temperature. I was overwhelmed the first time I connected a 50amp battery to my tools. They worked longer and stronger than with the old BL 1830 and there is a battery meter on the new ones that I never let get below half full.

Yes

Thank you for your question. Yes, the XVJ03Z 18V LXT® Lithium‑Ion Cordless Jig Saw, Tool Only can be used with any 18 Volt LXT Makita batteries including the BL1830B 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Compact 3.0Ah Battery.
