Yes, this model includes 1 battery and 1 charger.
The power of both a reciprocating saw and the precision of a jig saw are packed into less than 5 lbs, making it perfect for one-handed operation, lightweight and easily maneuverable.
Typically, reciprocating saws and jig saws are separate tools, but at Worx, innovation is in our nature. We developed the Axis, which uses a tool-free, quick change button to transition between jig saw mode and reciprocating saw mode. You’ll have the advantages of using the fine cutting control of a jigsaw, with the indoor/outdoor versatility of a reciprocating saw. With a couple of quick changes, you can go from intricate scroll work to trimming branches – with the same tool. Once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Like all Worx tools, we focus on the experience of using the tools as much as the innovation behind them. Having a two-in-one tool that’s difficult to transform defeats the purpose. We made transitioning between reciprocating saw and jig saw as easy as pushing a button.
NOTE: For your safety, we recommend removing the battery before switching the tool between cutting modes.
The Axis Cordless Reciprocating Saw & Jig Saw can handle a variety of materials including wood, aluminum, and PVC, just choose the right blade for the job at hand. This model includes four blades (3 for wood, aluminum and PVC, and 1 reciprocating wood blade). Additional blades or blades for other applications can be found at most hardware and home improvement stores.
While typical saws require an Allen/hex key to switch blades, the Worx Axis features a tool-less blade change you can operate with just one finger. Simply push and hold the switch at the cutting head to open the mechanism. Remove or insert a blade. Release the switch to activate the mechanism to keep your blade secure.
The Worx Axis Cordless Reciprocating & Jig Saw uses standard reciprocating blades and standard jigsaw blades. Customize your Axis by picking the blade most appropriate for the job at hand. These blades can be purchased at most local hardware or home improvement stores.
Yes, the Axis Cordless Reciprocating Saw & Jig Saw has a pendulum mode and has a stroke length of 3/4”, which will easily handle 2X material.
The orbital function on the Axis is used for those tough reciprocating tasks when aggressive cutting power is more important than precision. Orbital mode provides two dimensional blade movement for more aggressive cutting and improved efficiency.
Absolutely! Just because the Axis can become a reciprocating saw doesn’t mean we left out what’s important about a jig saw. Not only is the Axis lightweight enough to easily control with one hand so your other hand can stay on the work, we’ve included a light to illuminate your cutting space for better visibility. The Axis also has a non-marring baseplate and cutting foot to protect the surface of your work, and we make it comfortable to use with the safety switch that can be activated easily whether you’re right- or left-handed.
This tool does not have a vacuum port.
Yes! With Power Share, you can share the battery and save money. Your Axis Cordless Reciprocating & Jig Saw can use any WORX 20V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.
The 20V Worx MAX Lithium battery included with the Worx Axis Cordless Reciprocating & Jig Saw is the same battery we trust to power the JawSaw, and our Cordless Compact Circular saw, among others, like the Hydroshot and Switchdriver. Since the battery can stand up to those high-powered applications, you can trust it to keep up with you in the Axis.
Our lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cad batteries.
While Power Share allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 20V MAX Lithium battery with any 20V WORX tool – even the garden tools – but save your 32V battery for your 32V tools.
Carefully review the owner’s manual for all safety information and guidelines. Follow safety precautions while using any power tools – including wearing safety eyewear, gloves, appropriate shoes & clothing, and keeping hair tied back. See the owner’s manual for complete safety instructions and details.
ATTENTION: For safety, remove the battery when changing the blades or changing the tool between modes. When changing the blade, we recommend wearing gloves to avoid a pinch hazard.
This is one of the safety features included on the Axis Cordless Reciprocating & Jig Saw, like the safety switch that can be activated with either hand. The U-shaped piece of metal is a finger guard that helps protect you against accidental slippage resulting in cuts.
