YMMV

At the Home Depot in Corsicana, TX I came across this vacuum for $50. The vac only is $79 on Amazon, and the kit is $169.

This has two dish washable filters and in my opinion better than the Dyson. You can use a larger battery for longer operation. Makita also sells an inline cyclone to keep things from hitting the filter which makes this incredible.

I have this and don't think it's better than the Dyson V7, it's fine for around the shop and small things but definitely lacks in suction power. The filters are annoying too because everything clings to it ..

But for the battery and charger, get it !!! I got the tool only for $60 so this is a deal!

Yeah, i wouldn't expect it to be better than the dyson as it has no active brush roll.
It's probably built better, but most likely designed for picking up saw dust or something.

I definitely agree. I have the older one of these (think it's the same thing but it's white) and never really liked it. If this design is the same then all it has is a rubber flabber inside to hold the debris in and when that wears out after a couple of years then all the dirt just falls right out. Kind of reminds me of an old dust buster or some crap with an extension tube. Not even in the same league as dysons and sharks as the other guy mentioned too because it doesn't have powered rollers.

Buy the inline cyclone and most things won't get to the filter. Also, a 5 AH battery let's this thing go over an hour. More importantly, my wife doesn't come stealing my batteries.

PS: If it didn't stick to the filter, it would destroy the device.

For $300, that Dyson you guys keep comparing this to had better be a hell of a lot better.

Great price. We love ours. We have a messy kid and a tiny apartment. This thing gets used every day at least 5 or 6 times. We use our corded Dyson for more thorough cleaning, but this catches all the little things. I wash the cloth filter every 3-4 months in the sink and let it air dry before putting it right back on.

Recently bought the cyclonic attachment and although the power is very slightly less, the vac now doesn't ever bog down because the filter doesn't clog as quickly. It's also adds about 5" in height, which is more comfortable for my use -- I'm 6'2".

I have a second one that goes with me when I'm installing in people's homes. It's completely adequate for cleanup after a few small cuts or holes.

Some of my Makita tools see heavier use, but none so frequently as this little vac. Really improved our quality of life since having a kid. Actually, even the kid uses it now so there ya go.
