Initial feedback includes congratulations to Makita's "genius mad scientist engineers"

Thanks to @Toolpig on Instagram (who is also a Missouri-based restoration/remodeling contractor) for running the new 18V X2 LXT (36V) Lithium-Ion Cordless/Corded 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Vacuum, model XVC04Z.

In this first post he does a nice walk-around and calls out the key features. In the second post he runs the new vacuum with the powerful 18V LXT Brushless 6-1/2" Circular Saw and gives congratulations to Makita's "genius mad scientist engineers." We'll consider that a thumbs-up.

Wow! I am just blown away by this New cordless Vacuum from @makitatools !! It's hard to believe something so small can be so powerful💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 it's like 3 cfm shy of Festool CT power😍😍😍 it comes with the attachments you need for jobsite cleanups or powertool extraction!! It's built heavier than I expected. The power with batteries is far better than any cordless I have used. The power with a cord feels just like all of the other high end extractors I have used. This makes so much sense to me! I think this is a home run for Makita! The only things I would add are Bluetooth connection to cordless tools when on battery and powertool activation when plugged in. #DustExtractor #Vacuum #ShopVac #VacuumCleaner #DustCollection #ShopVacuum #Construction #Cleaning #Cordless #Brushless
