Sub Compact Jigsaw

Recommended Posts

I noticed a black jigsaw in the background of a picture of the new Makita x2 Miter saw and to me it looked like a subcompact. I did A quick search and found out there is a new subcompact barrel grip jigsaw coming. There will also be a 12v version as well.

To my eyes, that one laying on the floor looks like the full size teal Makita DJV181Z, which Im not sure if its currently available in the states or not.  I know it wasn't for a while but I thought I saw something about it being here now?

 

Any way that video showing the 12v looks real similar too.  I wonder if the the 18v will infact be different than the djv181?

 

*Edit* after looking closer that one on the floor is the djv181, you can tell by the buttons being orientated differently than the 12v CXT shown in the video.

either way a subcompact version is confirmed to be coming out according to the video. The pic is from a guy in Canada. I would guess Makita has same stuff in Canada as they do in the states.

I bought mine from a Canadian retailer. Have had it for over a year. It's a fantastic machine.

Which one? I've only seen them on ebay, the prices aren't very good as most of them come from overseas.

 

How much did it run you?

I think he meant retailer Chris, think he got it from IHL or KMS in Canada. Both are worth a look because the USD gives you about 20% off, which is good if the shipping doesn't kill you.

Yeah, KMS. DONT BUY FROM KMS!!!!!. (If your in the USA) They screwed me on shipping and import fees. I have bought from IHL and they were great to deal with.

KMS should have been the hint "Kill MySelf"

 

IHL is indeed a great seller! That's where I got my Milwaukee rotary tool, m18 jigsaw and 4.0 battery for cheap.
