The Makita 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Cyclonic Canister HEPA Vacuum (model DCL501Z, tool only) is a portable and powerful cleaning solution. Users on job sites depend on their Makita tools for the most demanding applications, and they can also count on this innovative and powerful vacuum for consistent and reliable cleaning. It's a convenient addition for anyone in the 18V LXT platform. The DCL501Z has a powerful motor that generates 46 CFM of suction power and a full 26.5 of water lift, yet it operates at with less noise (only 64 dB(A)) and will deliver up to 64 minutes of continuous operation from a single charge using an 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery (sold separately). The efficient cyclonic system separates large and fine dust particles so that only fine dust particles are captured directly on the filter for reduced clogging. In addition, the HEPA filtration system captures 99.97% of particulates .3 microns and larger. Its part of Makitas expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, the worlds 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. For improved tool performance and extended battery life, Makita created 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.

Compliance and Restrictions
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of those chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
