6 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.

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

At 28 liters, the VC3011L has a fairly large dust capacity compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that came out more than a year ago. Comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for a similar time to the VC3011L have dust capacitys of between 0.25L and 70L, and the average dust capacity is 12L.

Chart Edit

Very Big Dust Capacity Dry

The smallest dust capacity dry of similar spec vacuums that have been available for more than a year is 0.65L and the biggest is 28L. With a dust capacity dry of 28 liters, the VC3011L has one of the biggest dust capacity drys amongst similar spec vacuum cleaners of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

Similar spec vacuums that are a comparable age to the VC3011L have noise levels of between 57dB and 89dB. At only 64 decibels, the Makita VC3011L has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other vacuums of this age and type.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released more than a year ago, the Makita VC3011L does not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Miele Complete C2[plb_2437162_price] which also has a higher rating.

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.

Not Cordless

Most high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than a year are not cordless. The VC3011L is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for a comparable time to the VC3011L range from 6.7g to 30kg. The VC3011L is one of the heavier high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released one year ago (10.5 kilograms) amongst vacuum cleaners of this age.

There are a number of other 10.5kg heavy vacuums currently available that you might also want to consider including the Rowenta RU 5053EH[plb_2841892_price] which has better reviews.

Vacuums with a heavier weight that might also be worth looking at include the Miele Compact C1 PowerLine[plb_2722842_price] (4.8kg and higher rated), or the Kärcher MV 5[plb_2851090_price] (8.2kg and higher rated).

Pricey

The cheapeast high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released more than a year ago that we found costs £39 and the most expensive costs £875. We think that this high maximum input power vacuum looks expensive for a vacuum that has been available for more than a year.
