With the powerful 18 volt Makita DJR187RTE you can cut through wood and metal quickly and cordlessly. There are 2 powerful batteries included, which enable you to get started without a power point. The reciprocating saw has 2 settings, for wood and metal, so that you work accurately in both materials. Wooden beams, branches or slats of over 25 centimeters are no problem for the DJR187RTE. If you are cutting metal pipes, rods or pipes, this can be up to 13 centimeters. Saw blades you exchange through a handy click system with only one hand, so you always have a hand left to hold your work. Keep the reciprocating saw handy while working on a scaffolding, by hanging the saw on the supplied carrying hook.
