Tips for choosing a model for the home

The main difference between all Makita brand vacuum cleaners is their production focus. That is, they can not be called simple household models, one way or another they are professional. Even small hand-held appliances can be used not only to collect dust on sofas, but also to clean drywall before puttying.

Disassembled vertical Makita dust
One of the features of Makit models is the simplicity of the design. Vacuum cleaners do not have 4 stages of filtration or aquafilters, but they clean dry garbage efficiently and rarely fail

Choosing a device, it is necessary to analyze all its capabilities, evaluate functionality, design features, the availability of additional options, and specifically for Makita, the configuration is very important.

By purpose and type, all vacuum cleaners are divided into several categories:

The technical parameters of the units can be found by carefully studying the instructions. We recommend that you pay attention to noise, power, design and dimensions of the dust collector, weight, presence or absence of the battery.

For professional models, Makita cleaners are relatively quiet - this is noticed by both builders and housewives. But the noise in production or garden models is higher than in vertical ones.

Units are equipped with two types of dust collectors: cyclone and bags. The former are easier to clean, the latter are convenient for quick waste disposal. The volume of household containers - from 0.5 l, production - up to 20 l

Models are constantly appearing on the market, reviews of which are not yet available. But you can definitely say that they are also professional, reliable and efficient. Even the devices of the Chinese assembly fully justify their value, work without interruptions and almost do not break.

  1. We have a construction unit, it is convenient for them to clean a large area not only at home, but also on the street. This is especially true for harvesting dry leaves in the yard. I like that there is a big tank in the vacuum cleaner. But the only drawback is the rather large weight, about 7 kg. Therefore, the husband vacuums with this vacuum cleaner. It is easy to manage, but still an instruction is attached to it.

      Interesting, Anna. And how do you think it is worth it? For example, it seems to me excessive to buy a construction vacuum cleaner. It is good for its purpose, but just for cleaning an apartment or house its power is excessive. Accordingly, the price of such a vacuum cleaner is more expensive. The dry leaves you mentioned are remarkably swept away by a regular panicle or rake. Is it worth it to overpay twice?

        That's why he and a construction vacuum cleaner, in order to be used in the relevant field, to buy such equipment for simple cleaning in the house is inexpedient. Makita construction vacuum cleaners generally proved to be excellent, like other tools and equipment of this manufacturer.

        After repair work, a lot of construction debris and dust remain in the room, a household vacuum cleaner simply can not cope with this amount of work. And if it does, then the service life will be significantly reduced. The construction of the construction vacuum cleaner itself is made in such a way that it can collect a large amount of garbage, including large ones. Pay attention to the tank and trash bag! A vacuum cleaner can even be used to collect leaves in the yard, but buying exclusively for this is unreasonable. It is better to take specialized equipment.
