4 New Makita Cordless Dust Extractors

The common thread running through these new Makita cordless dust extractors is that they’re all 4-gallon models. From there, they separate with one model that boosts the power, one that draws in wet/dry capability, and two that are appropriate for concrete work at the same level as earlier models.

Makita XCV13Z 18V X2 LXT Cordless HEPA Filter Dust Extractor/Vacuum

  • New Makita Cordless Dust Extractors are Here!Airflow: 127 CFM
  • Water Lift: 96″
  • HEPA: Yes
  • AWS: No
  • Sound Level: 64 dB(A)
  • Weight: 22.6 pounds
  • Get yours on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ZtvG3A

The Makita XCV13Z is Makita’s most powerful cordless dust extractor to date and they’ve added a bonus by making this one a hybrid model. Use corded power when it’s available and battery power when it’s not—whatever is most convenient at the time.

Another really big deal is its 127 CFM rating. With its HEPA filter and filter cleaning system, this one is ready for concrete duties and covers grinder wheels up to 5″ thanks to its higher airflow.

Makita XCV14Z 18V X2 LXT Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum

  • New Makita Cordless Dust Extractors are Here!Airflow: 74 CFM
  • Water Lift: 39″
  • HEPA: No
  • AWS: No
  • Sound Level: 66 dB(A)
  • Weight: 17.4 pounds
  • Get it on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2KYqh0p

The Makita XCV14Z is a wet/dry version of their 4-gallon vacuum. This has the same performance specifications (74 CFM/39″ of water lift) as their previous 2-gallon model. If you’re looking for a cordless option and can forgo HEPA and AWS to save some money, this is your vac.

Of the 4 new Makita cordless dust extractors, this is the only one that’s suitable for both wet and dry cleanup.

Makita XCV15Z 18V X2 LXT Cordless HEPA Filter Dust Extractor/Vacuum

  • New Makita Cordless Dust Extractors are Here!Airflow: 74 CFM
  • Water Lift: 39″
  • HEPA: Yes
  • AWS: No
  • Sound Level: 66 dB(A)
  • Weight: 19 pounds
  • Get it on Amazon: https://amzn.to/321w4YI

The Makita XCV15Z gets a HEPA filter upgrade from the XCV14 and loses the wet vacuuming capability. It’s slightly heavier by 1.6 pounds and brings concrete work into the mix. At only 74 CFM, there are no Table 1 grinder applications, but it’s a great fit for concrete drilling and other non-CFM dependent tasks.

Makita XCV16Z 18V X2 LXT Cordless Dust Extractor/Vacuum

  • New Makita Cordless Dust Extractors are Here!Airflow: 74 CFM
  • Water Lift: 39″
  • HEPA: Yes
  • AWS: Yes
  • Sound Level: 66 dB(A)
  • Weight: 19 pounds
  • Look for it on Amazon

Taking things one step further, the Makita XCV16Z adds AWS compatibility to the XCV15Z. You get all the same benefits, including concrete-ready design, with the additional help of cordless autostart for your tools that have AWS. Even if you have a non-AWS tool, you can use Makita’s recent remote to let you start and stop with the push of a button.

If you’re using the original Makita AWS vac, this is essentially the same with a higher capacity.

Regarding the XCV13Z model, the higher airflow is only possible when the unit is plugged in. From Makita’s description: “The powerful Makita-built motor delivers 74 cfm and 36” water Lift of suction on battery operation. In corded operation, The vacuum delivers 127 cfm and 96” water Lift.”
