• Lightweight vac for domestic and light commercial use
• 4Ah battery gives 40 minutes run time
• Double dust collection system
The new Makita DCL500 is an advanced cordless vacuum cleaner suitable for use in domestic or office environments where there is a clean-up requirement following a visit by the IT installer, TV repair man or the plumber. Powered by an 18volt Lithium-ion battery, from 1.5Ah up to 4Ah, the DCL500 generates a maximum sealed suction of 6.6kPa with a maximum air flow of 1.3 cubic metres per minute. When fitted with a 4Ah battery this vacuum cleaner will run for 40 minutes on the low speed setting and 16 minutes on high.
This technically advanced vacuum uses the cyclone filtration system which employs centrifugal force to separate dust from the air as the first of a two-stage process. The large dust particles are removed at this stage and then the airflow is directed through a HEPA filter with high filtration capacity to clean the air before exhausting from the machine. The large dust particles are collected in the dust cup of the cyclone section and simply removed by pulling the dust cup release lever and pushing the release button.
When running, the maximum noise generated by this useful vacuum is just 64dB. The new Makita DCL500 is very compact, weighs just 3.8kg and has a shoulder strap for comfortable operation making it ideal for cleaning on stairs, or for storage if someone living in a smaller property. A flexible hose connects the vac unit to the extendable wand with the easygrip handle also carrying LED warning lights. These show when the filter needs cleaning and also when the battery capacity needs attention. This vacuum is supplied with a T-nozzle ideal for use on both solid flooring and carpets. The Makita DCL500 cyclone vacuum is available in body-only format for those Makita power tool owners who already have an inventory of Makita Li-ion batteries.
Makita has also introduced the CL104D 10.8v vac which has a built-in 1.5Ah Li-ion battery that recharges when the vac is replaced on the wall mounted charger frame. This lightweight vac has three operating modes and will run for 10 minutes in turbo mode, 15 minutes on high and 30minutes on low speed. In turbo mode it generates a remarkable 20W of power. A cloth dust bag of 500ml, or a paper bag of 330ml, is housed in the easy-to-open, push button front cover.
