Makita 18v Cordless/Corded Vacuum Meets Demand for Convenient Clean-Ups and Dust Extraction

Makita® has released a versatile new vacuum that offers both corded and cordless operation with the new 18V X2 LXT® Lithium-Ion (36V) Cordless/Corded 2.1 Gallon HEPA Filter Dry Vacuum, model XCV04Z (tool only).

In cordless mode the XCV04Z is powered by two 18V Lithium-Ion batteries, giving users the extended run-time of 36V but without leaving the 18V battery platform. It also meets the increasing demand for dust extraction with an efficient three-stage HEPA filtration system.

Two 18V Batteries for Extended Run Time

“Makita 18 Volt X2 technology gives contractors the ultimate in performance and convenience,” said Carlos Quintana, Senior Product Manager, Cordless Products, Makita USA. “Instead of managing multiple battery platforms or investing in much larger and heavier higher-voltage batteries, Makita 18V X2 tools allow contractors to use two 18V batteries to take on the most demanding applications. The 18 Volt batteries used in the XCV04Z are the same 18 Volt batteries a contractor will use on their Makita drill, impact driver, and over 150 other Makita cordless tools. No other cordless tool platform can offer this."

In addition to the new XCV04Z, Makita offers ten 18V X2 LXT® (36V) tools powered by two 18V batteries including a dual slide compound miter saw, rotary hammer, circular saw, recipro saw, hedge trimmer, string trimmer, chain saw, two blowers, and a backpack HEPA vacuum.

World’s Largest Cordless Tool System

The XCV04Z is part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system. With over 150 tools it is 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.

Cordless or Corded Operation

The XCV04Z offers corded or cordless operation for maximum convenience:

  • In cordless operation using two 18V 5.0Ah batteries (sold separately), the XCV04Z delivers up to 65 minutes of continuous run time on low setting and 30 minutes on high setting, with 74 CFM and 36” water lift of suction.
  • In corded operation, the vacuum delivers 127 CFM and 96” water lift.

3-Stage HEPA Filtration System

Filter replacement is the number one maintenance cost associated with jobsite vacuums, and the 3-stage filtration system is engineered for efficient cleaning and extended main filter life. 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.

Performance and Ease-of-Use

The XCV04Z is loaded with performance and ease-of-use features. 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 oversize 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.

Lower Noise, Less Weight

The precision lightweight motor components and efficient air ducting produce a vacuum weight of only 21.8 lbs. (with batteries, sold separately). The motor chamber is constructed of sound-absorbing materials for lower noise: only 75 dB(A) in corded mode and only 64 dB(A) in cordless.

Star Protection Computer Controls™

For improved tool performance and extended battery life, the XCV04Z features 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 XCV04Z can be powered by Makita 18V LXT® and Compact Lithium-Ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
