As professional builders, we have had the experience of trying out a lot of different tools over the years. In order to provide the best outcome to our clients, we always need to ensure that the tools and equipment that we use in home construction and renovations are all efficient and long-lasting. However, some tools have disappointed us before because of their inability to keep up with the demands of the jobs that we perform. On the other hand, there are also great tools that exceeded our expectations. These are the ones that we end up using for a very long time.
One of them is the The Makita Brushless Reciprocating Saw (DJR360-18Vx2). It is a tool that we turn to when cutting wood or steel. It runs on two (2) 18-volt Li-Ion battery platform and it uses a brushless mechanism.
Here’s why it is a must-have tool for contractors like us:
1. Extended Runtime
Because the saw is equipped with a double 18V battery, it gives you additional usage time. We are actually able to use it on all-day jobs.
We just need to let the tool rest once in a while to prevent it from over-heating or over-discharging. This is a realistic way of gauging a certain product’s runtime.
2. Well-designed Mechanism
The brushless motor lessens vibration when you use it. Though you can still feel the shake when you’re cutting, it’s not that overwhelming. Its vertical crank mechanism also minimises blade refraction.
It’s not a heavy tool weighing nearly 3 kg (6.2 lbs) with a length of 449 mm. With its handle that’s made of moulded rubber, you have a tool that’s compact and easy to grip. The cordless feature also allows the user to easily bring and use it anywhere within the construction site as long as it has enough battery power.
4. Added Features
Here are some more features that makes this Recipro Saw top-of-the-line:
This helps brighten the part of the material that you’re cutting. The light shines through the shoe and blade giving you a clearer vision.
This allows you to hang it on beams, scaffolding and pipes.
This shows the remaining power that you have on your batteries to be able to know whether it’s running out or still has enough.
The tool has 2 modes (for wood-cutting and for metal-cutting applications)
Here’s a sample video showing one of our builders using the Makita saw for door frame removal:
Tip: How to Remove a Door Frame
How to remove a door frame? We normally cut through both sides of the frame first with a reciprocating saw, then use a crowbar to prise away the two sides and the head.Trick of the trade: ALWAYS cut right through the frame completely.This video is from our current project in #Jolimont.
