The 18V LXT® Brushless Cordless Fiber Cement Shear Kit (XSJ05T) is designed for cutting cement board for exterior siding, backer board, or floor underlay with minimal dust. The cordless shear is designed for cutting cement board for bathroom tile, floor underlay, and exterior siding.

The XSJ05 is equipped with a Makita-built brushless motor allowing for a high degree of power efficiency with an exceptionally high 3,000 SPM speed. It has replaceable cutting blades that can be reversed for new cutting edges and longer blade life.

The shear head rotates 360-degrees with an easy push-button for various cutting positions. The shear features cast aluminum gear housing for less weight. A variable speed trigger provides increased control during use. The trigger has a lock-off power switch, requiring two actions to start the power.

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.
