The 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless 14 Ga. Straight Shear (XSJ03Z, tool only) cuts up to 14 ga. mild steel, 16 ga. stainless steel and easily cuts through spiral duct seams. These new shears are designed for HVAC, drywall, MEP, metal fabrication, metal manufacturing, roofing, and other trade segments.
It is equipped with a Makita-built brushless motor allowing for a high degree of power efficiency with an exceptionally high 3,000 SPM speed. The cutting head is constructed with precision-machined milled steel for durability and a high-performance double cut blade minimizes material distortion. The shear head rotates 360-degrees with an easy push-button for various cutting positions. The trigger can be locked in the on position for continuous use and lock-off position requires two actions to start. This metal shear features an ergonomic D-handle grip with an in-line motor for increased maneuverability. Other features include a built-in L.E.D. light and belt clip.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V LXT System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries. Makita® 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
