Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of professional tools and accessories, has expanded its dust extraction system with two new HEPA dry vacuums. Both models are powered by two 18V LXT batteries and an efficient 36V brushless motor, giving contractors two more cordless options for job site dust extraction and cleanups.  

The new models include the following: 

  • XCV21PTX – 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor Kit (Also available as tool only, XCV21ZX)
  • XCV24ZX - 36V (18V X2) LXT® Brushless 4 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Dust Extractor, Tool Only

“There is more awareness of the importance of dust extraction, and more demand for the convenience of cordless vacuums,” said Wayne Hart, senior communications manager, Makita U.S.A., Inc. “These two new LXT HEPA dry vacuums combine performance and capacity with the convenience of cordless – and they’re powered by the same fast-charging 18-volt batteries that run over 275 LXT products.” 

Both the 2.1-gallon and 4-gallon Dust Extractors deliver up to 80 minutes of continuous runtime when using two 18V LXT 5.0Ah batteries. The powerful Makita-built brushless motors deliver 74 CFM and 44" of water lift for efficient cleaning. Both the 2.1- and the 4-gallon dust extractors feature a three-stage HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger.  

The motor chamber is constructed with sound-absorbing materials, emitting only 64dB(A) on the high setting. The dust extractors come equipped with an anti-static hose (1” x 11’) and three adaptor cuffs in 22, 24, and 38 mm that fit 1” hoses for added versatility. A removable storage box holds attachments and batteries. 

The new dust extractors are part of Makita’s expanding dust extraction system which includes canister and backpack vacuums, as well as a comprehensive range of attachments for concrete applications, woodworking, and more.
