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™.
Clean-ups just got easier with the Makita 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless/Corded 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum Kit. The Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum (XCV04Z tool only) offers corded or cordless operation for maximum versatility and convenience.
In cordless operation, the Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for 36V power and run-time, without leaving the 18V LXT® battery platform. Using two 18V 5.0Ah batteries, the Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum delivers up to 65 minutes of continuous run time on low setting and 30 minutes on high setting. The powerful Makita-built motor delivers 74 CFM and 36” water lift of suction on battery operation.
In corded operation, the vacuum delivers 127 CFM and 96” water lift. The 19.7' power cord combined with the anti-static hoses (1-1/2" x 8' or 1” x 11-1/2', both included) provide extended reach for fast clean-ups.
The Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum has a 3-stage filtration system engineered for efficient cleaning and to extend the life of the main filter. The system consists of a Pre-Filter Bag (captures larger dust particulates), Damper Filter (captures much smaller particulates) and Main Filter (captures micro particles). All three filter components are included.
The Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum is loaded with ease-of-use features, such as an oversized on-off switch, variable speed control dial, and dual L.E.D. battery indicators are clearly visible and easily accessible on the top and front of the vacuum. Additional features include quick-release metal latches, large rubber bumper, and rear casters with locking levers.
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.
