New LXT® Brushless Vacuum and Dust Extractor Gives Contractors More Options

July 14, 2022, La Mirada, CA – Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high-quality professional tools and accessories, has expanded its dry vacuum and dust extraction lineup with the 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum with AWS® (model XCV22). The vacuum features a powerful Makita-built brushless motor and an efficient three-stage HEPA filtration system that captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger. It is ideal for clean ups and dust extraction applications in concrete and masonry, woodworking, and rough construction.
Long Run Time, HEPA Filter, and More
The new Dust Extractor delivers up to 80 minutes of continuous run time when using two 18V LXT® 5.0Ah batteries. The powerful Makita-built brushless motor delivers 120 CFM and 44" of water lift for efficient cleaning. The 2.1-gallon dust extractor features a three-stage HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger. An on-board filter cleaning system is designed to maintain optimal suction efficiency and longer filter life.
Convenience Features
The Dust Extractor features large casters for easy transportation, with lockable rear casters to prevent the vacuum from moving. A large rubber bumper helps prevent damage to the vacuum and the surrounding work environment, while the batteries are protected from debris with a lockable cover. It features an oversized on/off button which can be used by an operator who is wearing gloves, dual L.E.D. battery life indicators, and an easy-to-read variable speed dial that can be easily adjusted to a variety of applications.
Wireless Capabilities, More Portability
The XCV22 is engineered with the Auto-Start Wireless System. AWS® uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor. AWS® is an intelligent communication system that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when trigger-activated by an AWS® tool.
Model XCV22PTU is a kit and includes two 18V LXT® 5.0Ah batteries, Dual Port Charger, and an AWS® Transmitter as well as a range of accessories including HEPA Filter, cuff adapters, hoses, extension wand, floor nozzle, and more. Model XCV22ZU is a “tool only” (batteries and charger sold separately) but includes an AWS® Transmitter as well as the same range of accessories as model XCV22PTU.
Expanding Dust Extraction System
The new XCV22 dust extractor is part of Makita’s expanding dust extraction system which includes canister and backpack vacuums, as well as a comprehensive range of attachments for concrete applications, woodworking, and more. Contractors seeking a system compliant with the OSHA Silica Standard Rule 29 CFR 1926.1153 can use the Makita website to quickly search by application, model number, and more.
