Poor Technical Guidance

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


Price

Price Has Gone Up by 1% (1%)

There was a cheaper price of £187.87 on eBay 32 days ago.

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.

Expensive

The price range of comparable spec vacuums that have been around for more than a year is from £41 to £387. We think that this high maximum input power vacuum cleaner looks expensive compared to other comparable spec vacuums that have been around for more than a year.


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.


Design

Poor Design

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

Weight & Dimensions

Good Size

One Makita VC3011L owner reckoned that it was thin.

Heavy

With a weight of 10.5 kilograms, the VC3011L is one of the heavier high maximum input power vacuums that are a comparable age to this vacuum cleaner amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age. Vacuums of a similar age and type to this vacuum have weights of between 6.7g and 30kg.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 10.5kg heavy vacuums currently available including because of its better review score, the Rowenta RU 5053 (£172.33).

Vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that might be worth considering include the Hoover UH70901PC (£145.43) (8kg and higher rated), or the Numatic GVE370 (£189) (8.8kg and higher rated).
