Makita cordless tools are engineered for industrial applications, and for added protection during the most demanding jobs Makita created STAR Protection Computer Controls™. STAR is communications technology that monitors conditions during use, allowing the tool and battery to exchange data to protect against overloading, overdischarging and overheating. If STAR detects conditions that threaten to overload, overdischarge or overheat the tool or battery, the tool will automatically stop. At that time the user can either restart the tool, change or charge the battery, and put the tool back to work. When you slide a Makita 18V LXT® battery with the STAR symbol onto a Makita tool that has either the STAR symbol or a yellow terminal, you are benefitting from STAR Protection Computer Controls™.
The Makita 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Cyclonic Canister HEPA Vacuum (model DCL501Z, tool only) is a portable and powerful cleaning solution. Users on job sites depend on their Makita tools for the most demanding applications, and they can also count on this innovative and powerful vacuum for consistent and reliable cleaning. It's a convenient addition for anyone in the 18V LXT® platform.
The DCL501Z has a powerful motor that generates 46 CFM of suction power and a full 26.5” of water lift, yet it operates at with less noise (only 64 dB(A)) and will deliver up to 64 minutes of continuous operation from a single charge using an 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). The efficient cyclonic system separates large and fine dust particles so that only fine dust particles are captured directly on the filter for reduced clogging. In addition, the HEPA filtration system captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger.
It’s part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V Lithium-Ion slide-style batteries. Makita 18V Lithium-Ion 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. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
