5 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

A number of Makita VC3011L owners mentioned in their reviews that it was a bargain for the price. In October this year Geometer wrote in their Makita VC3011L review on Amazon “Very cheap and thin, I think this is one Makita product that will get used for a while, then thrown in the barn” nonetheless they only rated the product 20 out of 100. Geometer also mentioned “In conclusion this machine is so unlike the usual excellent Makita product that I think it must be a cheap, Chinese made outsourced product”.

One customer thought it was good value for money.

Good Size

One Makita VC3011L owner reckoned that it was thin.

Easy to Empty

One person thought it was easy to empty. In October this year Geometer said “Having now used this cleaner until the inner bag is almost full I attempted to empty it” in their review but even so they only gave the Makita VC3011L a score of 1 stars.

Quite Large Dust Capacity

Across all the high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the VC3011L the dust capacities range from 0.25L to 70L, and the average dust capacity is 14L. With a dust capacity of 28 liters, the VC3011L has one of the larger dust capacities amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 64 decibels, the Makita VC3011L has one of the quieter noise levels amongst vacuum cleaners of this age. The average noise level of vacuum cleaners that have been around for a similar time to the VC3011L is 76dB.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The VC3011L does not have a brush tool, although it is worth noting that most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the VC3011L also do 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 Complete C2[pl_2437162_price], or the Complete C2 Cat & Dog PowerLine[pl_2938539_price] both from Miele which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Poor Design

One person mentioned in their reviews that the product was not a good design.

Poor Support

One customer said in their reviews that the product did not have good technical guidance.

Very Low Vacuum Suction

The Makita VC3011L has one of the lower vacuum suctions (only 21 kilopascals) amongst comparable spec vacuum cleaners of this age. The average vacuum suction of high maximum input power vacuums that came out more than a year ago is 46kPa, and the vacuum suctions range from 0.24kPa to 250kPa.

Chart Edit

Recent Price Increase of £19.96

The price of the VC3011L has increased by £19.96 in the last 35 days.

Not Cordless

Most vacuums of a comparable age and type to the VC3011L are not cordless. The VC3011L is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The VC3011L is quite heavy (10.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other vacuums that have been on the market for a comparable time to the VC3011L. The weights of vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the VC3011L range from 6.7g to 30kg.

Vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that might be worth considering include the Complete C2[pl_2437162_price] (6kg), or the Complete C2 Cat & Dog PowerLine[pl_2938539_price] (6kg) both from Miele which also has a higher rating.
