Product Overview

Lightweight, portable and powerful, the Makita 12 Gal. Xtract Vac Wet/Dry Vacuum is a dependable cleanup tool designed to forcefully extract dust, liquid and debris on a job site. It operates quietly at 59 dBA while generating 92 in. of water lift and 135 CFM of suction power produced by the 12 Amp motor. A low center of gravity makes this 27 lb. machine easy to maneuver on the enlarged steel caster front wheels and wide-set urethane rear wheels. It starts and stops automatically with tool usage thanks to an onboard outlet that triggers vacuum power when you switch your tool on and off. It includes two Makita main flat Nano filters whose effectiveness is prolonged with the Automatic Filter Cleaning System that blows back at timed intervals to maintain filter performance.

Is it normal that is tries to clear the filter every 5 seconds?

The first thing I notice is that is increases suction to max every five seconds (accompanied by a noticeable "clack" noise). I suppose it is to clear the filter. Shouldn't it clear the filter only when it is necessary? This happens even if there is no filter bag inside and the vacuum is still perfectly clear (no dust/dirt inside yet).
Asked by: DIY
Filter replacement is the number one maintenance cost associated with job site vacuums. The VC4710 features an Automatic Filter Cleaning System with blow-back feature which is timed at set intervals (about every 5 seconds at start-up, and every 15 seconds thereafter) to maintain filter performance. Unlike less efficient shaker or pulse filter cleaning systems, the blow-back process in the Makita VC4710 is achieved with a rocker valve which isolates reverse air flow through each filter separately. The result is a more efficient filter cleaning system that does not interrupt vacuum suction.

Customer Reviews

12-Gal. Xtract Vac Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The hose is of poor quality The hose does not have a swivel end when attaching sanders, sweepers or extension tubes etc. making it extremely difficult to use. It has a nice feature of plugging a sander in and when the sander comes on the vac comes on, however you have to unscrew the hose a turn or two from the end to be able to handle the sander.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well except for lower suction This vacuum works well except for the lower suction settings. Periodically it ramps up to full suction before pulsing to clear the filter. If I'm using a lower suction because I'm cleaning something delicate, I have to listen for the increase and pull the nozzle away before it gets to full power.
