Expands dust extraction system to give contractors more options.
Makita dry dust extractor vacuum.
Makita U.S.A., Inc., has expanded its dry vacuum and dust extraction lineup with the 36V (18V X2) LXT brushless 2.1-gallon HEPA filter dry dust extractor vacuum with AWS (model XCV22).
The vacuum features a Makita-built brushless motor and three-stage HEPA filtration system that captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger.
“It is ideal for clean ups and dust extraction applications in concrete and masonry, woodworking and rough construction,” said Makita.
The new dust extractor delivers up to 80 minutes of continuous run time when using two 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries, said the company.
The dry vac features large casters for easy transportation, with lockable rear casters to prevent the vacuum from moving, said the firm. A large rubber bumper helps prevent damage to the vacuum and the surrounding work environment, while the batteries are protected from debris with a lockable cover.
Also, Makita said, the XCV22 is engineered with the auto-start wireless system. AWS uses Bluetooth® technology for wireless power-on and power-off communication between the equipped tool and dust extractor.
Headquartered in La Mirada, California, Makita is a worldwide manufacturer of industrial power tools, power equipment, pneumatics, and cleaning solutions that offer a wide range of industrial accessories.
