Launch Date - Oct 2016
The DJR187ZK cordless reciprocating saw features a Makita high efficiency brushless motor. Brushless motors are virtually maintenance free. They are far more efficient than a brushed DC motor. As there is no brush to cause friction against the motor, your battery saves power giving you a run time up to twice as long. A vertical crank design ensures high cutting performance and greater durability. The DJR187ZK has electronic 2-speed selection as well as a variable speed trigger control. Tool-less blade changing means an end to hunting around for the right hex key. The soft grip handle with an anti-slip elastomer wrap offers comfort and helps minimise vibration. With the wide variety of available blade types, you can cut wood, metal and plastic. This version is body only and requires power from a Makita slide-on LXT 18V Li-ion battery.
Features: Tool-less blade change - Electric brake - Variable speed - Ergonomically designed handle - Built-In Job Light - Newly designed crank mechanism for higher efficiency - High power
