5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for a comparable time to the 447MX, the Makita 447MX does not have a brush tool.

It is worth considering alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Sebo Felix 1 Premium[plb_1799481_price]; or the Bosch BGS5ZOOM1[plb_1817086_price].

Very Low Vacuum

Chart Edit

Not Cheap

After checking the price of 73 vacuums of a similar type and age they range in price from £30 to £850. We think that this vacuum looks expensive compared to other vacuums of a similar type and age.

Not Cordless

The Makita 447MX is not cordless. Most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 447MX are also not cordless.

Chart Edit


With a weight of 15.8 kilograms, the Makita 447MX is fairly heavy compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been available for a comparable time to the 447MX. Across all the vacuums of this age and type the weights range from 1.2kg to 110kg.

If you are not worried about having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the Bosch BGS5ZOOM1[plb_1817086_price] (6.7kg) which is also cheaper.
