I bought mine several months ago. Amazed at the amount of time it will run on charge. I have not had any problems with cracking and I use it several times a week; inside as well as on porch and breezeway.

Does the switch stay on or does it need to be manually held down with a finger?

Asked by Satre December 3, 2020

Answers

That’s another con, in my opinion. The switch does not stay on. Yes, you have to manually hold it down with your finger to operate the vacuum.

Best Mini Vacuum EVER !!!!!
We have very little carpet in our home, because we have two large dogs and a cat and there hair can be an issue. It was always a pain to drag a cord around the house with a vacuum. The bigger machines exhaust would blow there hair around the room, but this Makita works like a CHAMP! and since we have been using it we have discovered other uses (blinds, door & wall trim boards etc.) I was a little concerned about the battery life and the power of performance due to the extension arm, but Makita delivered. Thanks to all for providing and delivering a great product that solve a big problem for us!!!

Very light, handy
I love my 18 Volt Compact lithium-ion Makita cordless vacuum, it's very light, handy, pretty powerful on hard floor and floor mats. Once I have vacuumed my condo and it seems the battery starts getting low, I set it to rest and next day it seems like it regain some power back and I can vacuum some more. The battery recharges very quick. I don't need to leave the vacuum close to the power wall outlet in order to recharge it like some others vacuums, instead I can put it right in the store room closet and the charger can sit anywhere on a little place or counter plugged in. The inconvenience is: the extension too short, I wish they would make it a little longer, the filter needs to be clean often because is small and the battery could be the 3Ah instead of 1.5.

Best vacuum I've ever owned...seriously!
I love this vaccuum. This vaccuum has super powerful suction and lasts long enough to clean the floors in 4 rooms...and when it goes, no matter because the battery charges in just 15 minutes-luv that! I can't believe how much dirt this little lightweight awesome vaccuum picks up. I tested vacuuming every single day for two weeks and I couldn't believe how much debris it picked up each time. I didn't even think there was anything on the floor to pick up, but boy this thing is amazing. This vaccuum is really a good size for me because I'm only 5'3", but I imagine a tall person may want another handle attachment to make vaccuum a tad bit longer. It's also such a great size since space is an issue when you live on a boat!! Although, I do have a few wishes about design. I wish that the easy twist on and off of the canister to remove to clean should have a better locking because sometimes I go to take the attachment out and accidentally open the canister. Now, another improvement would be if Mikata would make and include a brush bristle, since the attachment pipe is not the standard size of other vaccuums, I can't substitute and haven't yet found one to be able to use with it. I recommend getting a backup cloth filter since it looks like it will need to be replaced at some point. All other parts are easy to clean. I do wish it came with a holder so I could store it on a wall...it's so lightweight! I've only had this for a few months and it looks like this vaccuum will be lasting me for many years.

I’m not impressed. I have hardwood floors downstairs and wall to wall carpet upstairs. To avoid dragging my vacuum cleaner downstairs, I wanted something lightweight and easy to handle to use on the stairs and on a rug in the living room. The pros are that it is lightweight and easy to handle. The con is that the suction is not powerful enough. Even after a full charge the suction is subpar. The three times I used it I ended up sweeping the stairs and rug afterward because it barely picked up anything. That’s double the work and defeats the purpose. I should have returned it immediately. Instead it sits in a hall closet.
