Question Makita cordless vacuum

https://www.tylertool.com/makita-xlc...?ref=makitawtb


I am looking at getting this for the trailer, Anyone have this model, or the bag-less 3 speed version? I wonder which has more suction. Both are within a few $$ of each other.



I have other Makita tools and like their quality.


Thanks for any feedback


One other thought - does anyone know if a hose will attach for getting behind the couch or in places the normal head wont work?


Thanks again

Have you purchased from this webiste before. It has a phone number listed but no other contact information.


I recently had to file 2 fraud claims with Paypal from sites that from a first glance looked legitimate, nice websites etc. But never received my order and no communication after payment. Just a word of warning.


Hopefully somebody else can verity the company.

I used that web page as an example, same price elsewhere. However Makita shows them as an authorized dealer on their web page.


Do you know anything about the vacuum?
Thanks

Not to sidetrack this thread but had a similar experience with a Scam website last year......paid through PP with a CC and when I was scammed PP was COMPLETELY USELESS in getting this resolved. I had to dispute the Charges with the CC AFTER PP said "Sorry nothing we can do". I ALWAYS make online purchases with a CC regardless of whether I use PP or not

OK back to the subject at hand, sorry to go off track as I am very interested in this vacuum as well

I have used some variation of this vac for over 30 years - https://www.amazon.com/Makita-LC06ZW...199009&sr=8-15 - this 12v one is the one i use and it matches up withthe impact gun and drill with the same Battery - Love them all.

Not sure what vac you are tring to get info of but this one has been great for Years, both in the RV and the Sticks and Bricks.

IMHO, anything with the Makita name on it is likely a good product.

JMHO,

$$$$$ lot more for a power switch - we have seriously used some version of this over the last 25-30 years and have not needed a lower power switch.

We have them at a seasonal rental at the Beach and the Cleaners loved them.

Gave them to both sons and DW's loved them.

.... on and on - $$ would be the only thing I'd look hard at.

JMHO,

This model has bags or replaceable filter. There is another bag-less model that has the same suction power which is higher than the previous one

Have you looked at Dyson? Too many $$? We have one that has worked very well for several years in the coach.

I would agree with dyson. My wife had gone through multiple Vacuums over the years. I bought her a Dyson stick animal and it has been the only one thats held up to daily use. With 3 dogs she sweeps every day sometimes twice a day. Money well spent in my opinion. I should also this is used in our S&B 2300sqft plus full finished walkout basement. So it really gets used.

I bought this one for myself and my wife confiscated it and loves it and uses it at our NJ house. Loves it so much I bought her a second one for the FL house.

Sorry, no direct experience with that product. However, if that vacuum is half as good as all the other Makita stuff that uses those same batteries, you can't go wrong!

I've gone thru 3 Shark rechargeable vacuums, and parts are not available. They did a great job but only lasted 6 months.

The Dyson's have online parts availability, and my wife loves the thing. I did have to have a replacement battery.

We use our Dyson many times per day, and absolutely love it. Only downside is we have to clean out the trap very often due to a shedding Rottweiler.

We have that 2 speed model and it is great. Lots of suction and very long battery life. Better yet is the Makita compact blower, DUB182Z 18V. We use it every day when in FL to blow off the mat, and very often on the roof to blow off debris.
