Would buy again
We use the Makita for home use. We can also use it in our travel trailer. Being able to use the same battery & charger that came with my Makita 18v cordless drill kept me from having to buy a battery & charger when I purchased the vacuum.

Powerful suction is able to pick up wet pasta off hardwood floors through the extension, with the brush attachment. The only downside is that the filter is a little difficult to keep clean but no more so than any other hand held I've seen. this is by far the best handheld I've ever used. Ease of use is the same as any other model but with far better suction. I'm considering buying a second in case this one breaks one day.

Best cordless Vac I've ever owned
This is a great powerful handvac. Using the batteries from your other tools is very convenient. The extension stick keeps you off your hands and knees. There is plenty of suction to work vey well with the extension. If more people knew about this they would all buy it.

Superior Cordless Vacuum
Excellent suction, lightweight, quiet and the perfect size for the little messes while doing any type of work. Now, I don't have to plug-in/turn-on the 'big and very-noisy' shop-vac for every little mess.

At last, a useful cordless vacuum
I've tried several small cordless vacuums and the batteries have been a joke with all of them. They work okay for very short uses, then within months, they hardly work. This unit has the best suction I've seen from a cordless. I've run it for about 20 minutes and have not needed to charge it. I have a lot of experience with the Makita LXT batteries and can assure you that two years from now, the batteries will be as good as new. This is not designed to be your main vacuum. It's a convenient way to do small jobs without the hastle of a cord. Think Dustbuster on steroids that will work well for years. I dump the canister after each use - it's very easy.

Handy cordless vacuum
It's so nice not to plug in the vacuum, it works great for quick clean up just what I was hoping for. The power is very good it cleans my car picking up sand & small stones. The battery seams to last a very long time.

Wife liked mine, had to get her one
I've had one of these for a long time I use in my remodeling business. I had a reason to use it in the house and my wife got a hold of it and almost wouldn't give it back, so I had to buy her one.

Good portable vacuum
Works much better than the portable rechargeable Dyson we had -- that thing had little operating time between charges. This does quite better, and having multiple batteries, makes it able to do more in the same amount of time.

Just what my husband wanted
My husband requested this as a birthday present to use in his work. He is a finish carpenter installing shelving, door locks, etc and uses this vacuum to clean up after he installs hardware.
