Makita expands dust extraction vacuum range for site safety

·        20 and 35 litre wet/dry models
·        L class approved for masonry, concrete and plaster
·        Powerful 1,100watt motors

Makita has introduced further additions to the professional dust extractor vacuum range to meet increasingly stringent dust extraction regulations on-site and in workshop applications. Two new L class approved models with 20 litre and 35 litre container volumes are available. Both are powered by a 1,100watt motor and are available in 240v or 110v modes. The Makita VC2010L and VC3511L dust extractors are equipped with a washable PET filter that gives 3000cm² of filtration surface. An integral easy-to-operate manual filter cleaning system is provided. These powerful extraction units generate a maximum airflow of 3.6m³ per minute and a maximum vacuum pressure of 18kPa.

Both of these new models have a power take-off point enabling them to be coupled to Makita power tools which, when operated automatically starts the dust extraction unit to protect the working environment.  Both models feature a fleece filter bag which facilitates the collection of moist debris without damage to the filter. The 3.5 metre-long flexible suction hose has a reliable click-connection system for easy changing of the varied selection of tools and hose extensions. The Inox-containers are fitted with four fully floating castors which provide full manoeuverability with supreme stability.

The lightweight, compact and easily transportable 20 litre unit stands just 500mm high and weighs only 7.3kg, ideal for transporting in the van and into the worksite, whilst the 35 litre model weighs 8.2kg and stands 685mm high.

Dust extraction is an increasingly important requirement when power tools are in operation.  Makita manufacture a range of harmonised extraction systems delivering safer working environments.  Visit www.makitauk.com for more information.
