Makita adds two HEPA dry vacs


Makita U.S.A. recently expanded its dust extraction line with two new HEPA dry vacuums, the 2.1-gallon model XCV21PTX and 4-gallon model XCV24ZX. Both are powered by two 18-volt LXT batteries and a brushless motor.

“There is more awareness of the importance of dust extraction and more demand for the convenience of cordless vacuums,” says Wayne Hart, Makita’s senior communications manager.

“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 models deliver up to 80 minutes of continuous runtime and feature a three-stage HEPA filter that captures 99.97 percent of particles .3 microns or larger, according to the company. Additionally, for noise reduction, the motor chamber is constructed with sound-absorbing materials emitting 64dB(A) on the high setting.

As a bare tool, the 2.1-gallon model sells for $559 and the 4-gallon for $579.

Kits with two batteries and a charger and also available.
