Rated 4 out of 5Â by countrywoman very useful
This little vacuum is light, fast, and the battery lasts past what I need for cleaning my laminate floors. The only thing I would like would be either an extension attachment to make it longer or for it to be a few inches longer to reach corners and high areas. It is great!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JohnO Glad I bought it
This is a very nice and handy little vacuum cleaner,
no problem sucking up dirt around the house, not too noisy,
takes up very little space when not in use
can do pretty much all I need on a single charge,
very good value, especially if you already have the batteries and charger.
Would prefer if there were bristles on the floor attachment instead of the rubber,
would make it easier to clean rugs.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sean Great suction power and quick charge
I have owned several handheld vacuums (Electrolux, Black & Decker â¦) and they lose suction power as the battery wonât charge 100% anymore. So, Makita Cordless Vacuum seemed to resolve my problem with most cordless vacuum by incorporating long lasting Lithium Battery that could be replaced when it is old. In my opinion, it could be a perfect cordless vacuum if Makita fixed the following problems.
â¢ It is missing lock and proper grip to open and close the unit to empty the trash.
â¢ It would be better if it was 4â longer neck, so you wonât have to bend to reach the floor, I am 6 feet tall and my Wife is 5â8â and both of us experienced the same problem.
â¢ It would be more convenient if you could mount the battery charger on the wall to save counter space.
â¢ It would be better if you did not have to hold the power switch when it is in use.
â¢ Vacuum Head could work better if it came with brush; the current rubber blade is not working on hard floor.
It is clear it is not design for household use but it has the potential. I donât think what I am asking would increase the cost of manufacturing it, but it certainly will increases the value of this unit, and Makita could sell it in a broader market. I am going to keep it, my wife like the suction power and quick charge.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Operaman Great Everyday Picker Upper
A few years back I had bought a Black Friday deal of Makita's Electric Drill and Electric Driver. It came with 2 batteries and if you are like me, these tools only get used when working on projects and the batteries are rarely used. When shopping for a hand held vacuum, I came upon this one. Now I always have a fresh battery on the charger for my projects when I need to get them done and for this vacuum.
I have 2 little kids (4 and 2) and there is food thrown on the floor every night. Surprisingly, this is a strong vacuum that grabs just about everything with the extended attachment. When you turn on the vacuum, it doesn't sound that powerful, but I have had this for 6 months now and it is still running strong. This is a good vacuum for everyday cleaning, projects with sawdust, etc. My only recommendation is that you clean the filter often as it builds up pretty fast. Other than that, I highly recommend this vacuum.
