Cuts wood, metal, plastic and many other similar materials. It looks like a sabre saw but the blade clamp will take either standard sabre saw or jigsaw blades. This makes this multi-use saw from Makita even more versatile due to the vast range of blades available. It’s compact with a dual variable speed switch option for control from the handle or paddle switch on the body which allows you to change your grip accordingly. The front guide shoe is adjustable and fitted with an LED job light. Part of the Makita 18V Li-Ion family, it is supplied as body only. Suitable for both 3.0Ah, 4.0Ah and 5.0Ah batteries.
