Both cordless backpack vacuums are part of their 18V LXT system however they are also X2 power tools which means they operate using two 18V batteries at a time and are actually 36 volt tools. Both units are also very similar to each other. As you can see from the image above the XCV09 model is slightly smaller and has a 1/2 gallon capacity while the XCV17 is a little larger and has a 1.6 gallon capacity. Actual rated capacities may be less than claimed. Other than their size, they are very similar in shape and features while the XCV09 is predominantly blue while the XCV17 is predominantly white in color. Each features a flexible hose with aluminum telescoping extension wand, crevice nozzle and 11″ universal floor nozzle along with a HEPA filter. While both are very similar in performance the XCV09 has 70 CFM of suction while the XCV17 has a slightly higher 78 CFM of suction. Also the weight is different on both models, the smaller XCV09 comes in at 9.9 lbs with two 5.0 batteries and the XCV17 comes in at 15 lbs with two 6.0 ah batteries.

Both units are sold as either a baretool or as a kit however kit on each model has different batteries included. For example the XCV09 as a kit XCV09PT comes bundled with two 5.0 ah batteries while the XCV17PT comes with two 6.0 batteries. Runtime is said to be up to 116 minutes with 5.0ah batteries on the XCV09 model and up to 139 minutes with 6.0 batteries on the XCV17 model. Manufacturers usually claim best runtimes on lowest speeds so don’t expect to get these runtimes on the highest speed setting and to expect less runtime when going full speed. Makita claims the XCV17 model has better runtime however it seems their claim is based on the fact that that model in kit form has larger batteries and thus why it should get longer runtimes because as we know larger capacity batteries work longer. Both units also include an integrated controller on a separate cord to power on/off the unit and to select between its three speeds.
