JR3070CT RECIPRO SAW CALLED "A COMPLETE WARHORSE" weighs-in on Makita's AVT Recipro Saw

When things get intense on the jobsite, skip the others and go straight to the Makita JR3070CT.'s "Warhorse": the Makita JR3070CT.

That's the recommendation from, according to their somewhat belated review of a Makita recipro saw they've had on jobsites since 2009.

After 3+ years of service, Toolsnob called the Makita 15 AMP AVT Recipro Saw (JR3070CT) "a complete warhorse" and "a total savage."   They appreciated the 15 AMP motor, and made it clear that "there's nowhere else we go" when the application calls for maximum cutting power.  Toolsnob even liked the roomy metal case, which they called a rarity in the category. For the complete review on, go here.

15 AMP Power with Less Vibration
The Makita AVT Recipro Saw (JR3070CT) is powered by a Makita-built 15 AMP motor with electronic speed control to maintain constant speed under load. The variable speed control dial enables the user to match the speed to the application, and the built-in clutch is engineered to reduce gear damage. The JR3070CT is engineered with Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT), Makita's exclusive internal counterbalance system that reduces vibration.
