Makita takes another step toward a truly cordless job site with 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 intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when trigger-activated by an AWS® tool. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. The Makita AWS® dust extractor (XCV08Z) is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for maximum performance, and users benefit with an expanding AWS® system that includes cordless tools for concrete, metal and woodworking.
Auto-Start Wireless System technology (AWS®) utilizes Bluetooth® technology for wireless communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor (all sold separately). The AWS® Transmitter (198501-5) is designed to be inserted into a AWS-capable Makita® Product to connect the tool to the dust extractor (tool and dust extractor sold separately). AWS-capable products include select demolition hammers, rotary hammers, surfacing planer, drywall sander, miter saws, angle grinders and more.
