2 Reasons For

Quite High Airflow Rate

The airflow rate of vacuum cleaners of this age and type range from 0.5l/min to 3,900l/min. With an airflow rate of 3,600 liters per minute, the Makita 446LX has a fairly high airflow rate compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and spec.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

When compared to other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed, the noise level of the Makita 446LX of only 59 decibels is one of the quietest. Vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago have noise levels of between 57dB and 87dB, and the average noise level is 75dB.

Vacuums with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium (£300.00) (65dB) which is also cheaper.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuums that were launched around the same time as the 446LX do not have a brush tool. The Makita 446LX is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool to this vacuum and we think the Sebo Airbelt D4 Premium (£304.94); or the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium (£300.00), or the Samsung VC20F70 are also worth considering.

Expensive for a High Maximum Input Power Vacuum Cleaner That Has Been Available for More Than Two Years

We think this high maximum input power vacuum cleaner looks expensive for a high maximum input power vacuum cleaner that has been available for more than two years. The price range of vacuums of a comparable type and age is from £50 to £1,018.


With a weight of 10 kilograms, the Makita 446LX is one of the heavier vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the 446LX amongst high maximum input power vacuum cleaners of this age. The weights of high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been around for around the same time as the 446LX range from 1.2kg to 17kg, and the average weight is 6.8kg.

If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Sebo BS 46 Comfort (£359.00) (8.5kg), or the Makita VC1310LX1 (£348.23) (9.6kg).

Not Cordless

The Makita 446LX is not cordless. Most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that came out more than two years ago are also not cordless.
