The Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 18 Gauge Straight Shear (model XSJ01Z, tool only) combines high speed, compact size and less weight. The XSJ01Z has a Makita-built 4-pole motor for faster cutting, yet it weighs just 5.3 lbs. (with battery, sold separately) for better control in cutting steel and stainless steel sheet metal. It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion series, the world’s largest cordless tool line-up powered by an 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style battery. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger.
