MAKITA'S JR3070CT RECIP SAW WITH AVT(TM) PICKED AS FAVORITE IN REVIEW OF TOP MODELS IN JLC MAGAZINE

December 6, 2007 – La Mirada, CA – The Journal of Light Construction Magazine picked Makita’s JR3070CT as the top reciprocating saw in a head-to-head test against the most powerful corded models in the category.
 
Makita’s JR3070CT Recip Saw with Anti-Vibration Technology (AVT), came out on top in a review of products from eight different manufacturers, which appeared in the magazine\'s December 2007 issue. The review evaluated blade clamps, weight/balance, and vibration control, and also included timed tests of straight and orbital cutting through wood and metal materials.  The overall favorite was picked based on how well the saw cut, the overall balance, and how easy it was to change the blade.  On-the-job testing was conducted by an independent contractor in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. The reviewer picked the Makita recip saw for its “speed, balance, comfort of use, and excellent blade clamp.” 
 
Makita’s JR3070CT Reciprocating Saw features Anti-Vibration Technology, a counterbalance system that reduces vibration to only 10 m/s². The saw also features a “tool-less” blade change and shoe adjustment, a unique clutch assembly to help protect the gears, and 4-position orbital/straight cutting action. The powerful 15 AMP motor with electronic speed control maintains constant speed under load.  The tool is ideal for builders, roofers, contractors and metal fabricators for applications such as demolition, metal cutting, wood cutting, drywall and plaster, plastics and remodeling.
 
JLC Magagzine is a monthly magazine written exclusively for remodeling and building professionals nationwide, with a circulation of over 75,000.  The tool review is featured in the December 2007 issue.
