Makita’s introduces JR3070CT AVT Reciprocating Saw

September 1st, 2011 by Jim German Leave a reply »

Makita’s got a new reciprocating saw, the JR3070CT.  Most of its features are pretty standard for a big corded reciprocating saw.  It has a 15 Amp motor, goes from 0-2800 SPM, and has tool-less blade changes.  The saw features a stroke of 1-1/4″ which is a bit longer than average, and makes for smoother, faster cutting.  It has some nice controls, which allow you to set a max speed,  as well as adjust the cutting action between orbital and straight cutting.  To prolong the tools life it features a mechanical clutch that will disengage the drive if the saw binds up.

The headline feature here though (which you can tell from the giant AVT emblazoned onto the side of the saw) is the Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT).  This is a counter weight system that Makita claims will reduce the vibrations by half.  Vibration is a big deal as it is one of the primary factors in fatigue.  A saw that is shaking around alot will cause you to get tired very quickly, as your arms will try and hold it in place.  Therefore AVT should make this saw alot easier to use for long periods of time than other comparable saws.



  1. Yiyi while driving plainly hear the call, she is face became pale, which is self-defeating ah, at the moment Qiang not around. Even people who have no one to discuss, Yiyi panic almost even cars are not open. Along the way crooked, thanks to fewer vehicles on the road which is the afternoon, a few more can not be otherwise non-hit, but also thanks to the traffic police rushed to the Great Wall Hotel commands are received along the cloth whistle, or Mercedes-Benz cars have long since been stopped by traffic police.

      Still have yet to see these in person the heart of the mwsdeit, Dewalt loyal demographics, corporate repair store in my city .tough box might refer to the chances of actually buying these, thus new name should be dewalt tough sell boxes.I cant buy what I cant find. No, i’m not going to buy something like this online at first, storage can be very specific, with small margins between a successful product and one that just looks good.
