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 18V X2 LXT® (36V) 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™.
Clean-ups just got easier with the Makita® 18V X2 (36V) LXT® Cordless 4 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor, AWS™. The Cordless Dry Dust Extractor (XCV16ZX, tool only) offers maximum versatility and convenience.
In cordless operation, the Dry Dust Extractor 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 delivers up to 75 minutes of continuous run time on low setting and 40 minutes on high setting. The powerful Makita-built motor delivers 74 CFM and 39” water lift of suction on battery operation.
The Dry Dust Extractor 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 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 LXT® system, the world’s largest cordless tool system powered by 18V lithium-ion 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.
The XCV16ZX 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.
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 batteries with the Star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
