Model DRC200Z is a Brushless Robotic Vacuum (tool only, batteries and charger sold separately) from Makita® (same as DRC200PT except battery and charger sold separately). This cordless solution automatically cleans large flooring spaces in commercial environments.
The DRC200Z features an efficient BL™ brushless motor that eliminates carbon brushes to run cooler for extended run time and longer tool life. Users can turn it loose with two fully-charged 18V LXT® Lithium-Ion 5.0Ah batteries (sold separately) and it will clean approximately 5,380 square feet of hard flooring (or up to 200 minutes of continuous operation in “Main Brush plus Vacuum” mode). “Main Brush Only” is for large debris while “Main Brush plus Vacuum” is for large debris and small particles. The timer function allows operators to preset automatic “on” in one, three, or five hours.
The DRC200Z has a three-stage cleaning system with side brushes (help capture debris alongside walls, corners, and obstacles), a main brush, and vacuum suction. This delivers a wide cleaning path of over 18″. The filtration system is engineered to capture micro dust particulates. The robotic vacuum also provides a large capacity (5/8 gallon) dust box, two navigation options to set depending on the number of obstacles, timer function, and remote control.
A Cruise mode function combined with multiple detection sensors efficiently navigate and perform complete coverage of floor space. The robotic vacuum includes two navigation options—“Pattern Navigation” for wide spaces with few obstacles and “Random Navigation” for spaces with multiple obstacles. Detection sensor technology communicates floor conditions such as obstacles, cliff avoidance, or boundary tape lines. To restrict cleaning to specified areas, the boundary tape can prevent the vacuum from traveling into restricted zones.
Model DRC200Z’s motor chamber is constructed of sound-absorbing materials for a low 64 dB (A) operating sound level. Cleaning components are fully washable for ease of maintenance, and an ergonomically positioned carrying handle offers increased comfort. A remote control provides wireless capability to set most operating functions, including location beacon.
The DRC200Z is part of Makita’s expanding 18V Lithium-Ion system, 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. Dual L.E.D. battery indicators show charge level for each 18V LXT Lithium-Ion battery
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. For increased versatility, the tool can also be powered by Makita 18V LXT and compact lithium-ion batteries with the star symbol on the battery indicating Star Protection inside.
