Makita makes a science of vacuum cleaning

  • New 18V LXT Backpack Vacuum
  • 12VMax CXT Stick Vac
  • Bigger range, wider choice

Makita, Britain’s no. 1 professional power tool manufacturer, has added a new twin 18v (36v) Brushless Backpack LXT Vacuum Cleaner, and another super-useful capsule-type 12Vmax CXT Vacuum Cleaner to the range.  They join the expanding Makita collection of cordless vacuum cleaners, which includes a robotic model, as well as an extensive pressure washer and dust extraction ranges.

The new DVC261ZX11 Brushless Backpack LXT Vacuum Cleaner is powered by twin 18V Lithium-Ion LXT batteries, directly housed on the machine to power the 36V DC Brushless motor drive system that provides high performance and extended run time.  The new DVC261Z produces 105, 55 and 30 watts of suction power in Maximum, High and Low settings with an improved maximum airflow of 2.3 m³/min and sealed suction of 11 kPa.

This vacuum features a convenient controller operable On/Off switch and Max/High/Low power selection switch.  This controller is equipped with a belt clip that attaches onto the waist belt of the comfortable, adjustable harness.  An intelligent mode memory function allows start-up in the same suction power as when the vacuum was turned off.

In this ‘body only’ model the HEPA filter can be easily removed for cleaning and can be used with either a paper dust bag that has a large capacity of 2.0 litres, or a cloth dust bag with capacity of 1.5 litres.  This powerful, lightweight machine weighs just 3.9kg, plus batteries, features a battery protection circuit, lightweight hose and has low vibration and noise levels.

The DVC261Z benefits from an easily adjustable telescopic straight pipe to suit the user’s height and an LED job light ideal for cleaning confined spaces.  Run time is highly efficient: using 2 x 6.0Ah Makita Li-Ion batteries, run times of 40, 75 and 140 minutes can be achieved in Low, High and Maximum settings.

Makita’s back pack vacuums have been successfully trialled by train operators and airlines to speed up passenger turn round and provide a more pleasing and hygienic environment.

For light domestic cleaning, the new CL108FDZ 12Vmax CXT Vacuum Cleaner is just right for the job and joins Makita’s wide range of bag-less, capsule style machines which are efficient and easy to empty.  This new model has a dust capacity of 0.6 litres and weighs a comfortable 1.0kg without a battery.

Producing an impressive 30, 20 and 5 watts of suction from three power settings of Maximum, High and Normal, this model has a max sealed suction of 4.4 kPa and maximum air flow of 1.2 m³/min.  With a 1.5Ah battery this low noise vacuum has a run time of 10 minutes in Maximum, 12 in High and 25 minutes in the Normal setting. Featuring a convenient LED job light and comfortable ergonomic soft grip, this body only vacuum includes floor and sash nozzles for a variety of cleaning chores and is available in the traditional Makita blue.
