MAKITA LAUNCHES NEW CORDLESS BACKPACK VACUUM DESIGNED FOR JANITORIAL INDUSTRY

The 18V X2 LXT (36V) Brushless Cordless Backpack Dry Vacuum offers more capacity and efficient HEPA Filtration

Get up to 139 minutes of run time on normal setting with the 18V X2 LXT® (36V) Brushless Cordless Backpack Vacuum using two 18V LXT® 6.0Ah Batteries.

January 15, 2020, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional power tools and accessories, is excited to launch the 18V X2 LXT® (36V) Brushless Cordless 1.6 Gallon HEPA Filter Backpack Dry Vacuum (XCV17). The XCV17 is a powerful and portable clean-up solution that eliminates extension cords, making it ideal for cleaning crews.
 
The XCV17 is durable and compact, yet features a large capacity disposable filter bag for less frequent disposals. An efficient two stage HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger extending the life of the main filter. As a result, the Makita Cordless Backpack Vacuum offers a portable, efficient tool for cleaning expansive spaces.
 
“Makita Backpack Vacuums are easy to maneuver and comfortable,” declares Jenny Feng, Senior Product Manager, Jan-San. “The XCV17 weighs less than the competition, providing a more comfortable fit and easier mobility.”
 
More Power and Longer Run Time
A powerful, Makita-built BL Brushless Motor generates 78 CFM of suction power and 44” of water lift. The BL Brushless Motor eliminates carbon brushes, enabling the motor to run cooler and more efficiently for longer life. The two 6.0Ah 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Batteries provide up to 139 minutes of continuous run time on the normal setting and 40 minutes on the maximum setting.  
 
Cordless Convenience
Not only is the user free from cords, but the batteries are easily accessible on the side of the unit for uninterrupted workflow when the user needs to change them. Attachment holders on each side of the harness keeps the controller and attachments right at the user’s fingertips. A push-button power selection and a built-in L.E.D. light that illuminates the work area are found on the controller, which attaches to the harness waist belt. Padded, adjustable shoulder straps and waist belt provide a comfortable fit for a variety of sizes. For added reach, the XCV17 comes equipped with flexible hose and aluminum telescoping wand.
 
LXT Cordless Advantage
The Makita® LXT Cordless System, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion slide-style batteries, provides users with the most advanced, durable, and dependable 18V products. Four key components work together to create the LXT Advantage: fast-charging LXT Batteries, a Rapid Optimum Charger, industry-leading brushless motors, and Star Protection Computer Controls
 
Makita 18V LXT Batteries have the fastest charge times in their categories, so they spend more time working and less time sitting on the charger. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created Star Protection Computer Controls™. Star Protection is communication technology that allows the Star Protection-equipped tool and battery to exchange data in real time and monitor conditions during use to protect against overloading, over-discharging and overheating.
