Makita VC3011L In-Depth Analysis

Reviews

Customers Report That it is 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.
