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.
Tool users who unplug the cord with Makita 18V LXT® experience new levels of convenience, efficiency and productivity. Makita created the 18V Lithium-Ion cordless tool category in 2005, and today it is the world’s largest 18V cordless tool line-up. Makita’s leading technology gives tool users unmatched performance and breadth of line, with innovation in motor and battery technology that is obliterating industry standards – and leaving old thinking behind. With high amp-hour batteries, efficient brushed and brushless motors, and 36V (18V X2) LXT® technology, Makita 18V LXT® tools not only meet corded demands, they can exceed the performance of corded, all while remaining in a single cordless platform powered by the industry's fastest-charging 18V lithium-ion batteries.

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™.
There is increased awareness of the importance of dust extraction and Makita has an expanding range of solutions, including the 36V (18V X2) LXT® 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor/Vacuum, with AWS®.
The XCV08PT is powered by two 18V LXT® batteries for 36V power and run-time, without leaving the 18V LXT® battery platform. It has an efficient three-stage HEPA filtration system that captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger. It’s powered by an efficient brushless motor for longer run time, increased power and speed, and longer service life. Using two 18V 5.0Ah batteries , the XCV08PT delivers up to 75 minutes of continuous run time on low setting and 40 minutes on high setting, with 74 CFM and 39” water lift of suction. It includes an anti-static hose (1-1/2" x 8') for extended reach and fast clean-ups. It has a filter cleaning system that is engineered to maintain optimal suction efficiency and longer filter life.
The XCV08PT is equipped with Auto-Start Wireless System (AWS®), which uses Bluetooth™ technology for wireless power-on/off communication with the AWS-equipped tool. AWS® is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and reduces noise.
Features include a variable speed control dial, oversized on-off switch, and dual L.E.D. battery indicators that 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.
