Cordless power from Makita

Makita provides the cordless power for cleaning tasks

Power tools manufacturer Makita UK has expanded its leading XGT 40Vmax range with the launch of two new battery-powered L-Class vacuum cleaners.

Thanks to Makita’s unique XGT 40Vmax cordless technology, the VC001GL and VC003GL offer cleaning professionals and facilities managers a selection of powerful cleaning solutions to make light work of any task.

With XGT 40VMax technology at their core, the VC001GL and VC003GL vacuum cleaners deliver impressive output that is equivalent to corded alternatives – with the added benefits of cordless, including increased safety and flexibility thanks to the omission of trailing power cables. The improved cooling efficiency of their design and inclusion of Makita’s brushless motor mean the VC001GL and VC003GL deliver the increased power and battery run times needed for professional use.

What’s more, both machines can house two XGT 40VMax batteries. This means that when the first battery runs out of charge, the second one automatically kicks in to keep the machines running for longer. To improve productivity further, the VC001GL and VC003GL have large tank capacities of 8L and 15L respectively, preventing the need to regularly down tools to empty the dust bag.

With numerous power options available, including ‘high power’ and ‘quiet’ modes, users can easily select the most appropriate setting for the application. The VC001GL and VC003GL can also be used for both wet and dry vacuum cleaning, providing professionals with a solution for every job. For wet vacuuming, the machines benefit from IPX-4 water resistance rating.

Thanks to anti-vibration rubber and the redesigned exhaust air flow path of the motor, the VC001GL and VC003GL produce low air noise levels. Their quiet operation means they can be used in occupied premises such as offices, schools and commercial spaces, with minimal disruption to the building’s occupants.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita, said: “Our XGT 40VMax range of machines have been designed to provide operators with the power needed to tackle higher demand applications, without compromising on battery run time. The new VC001GL and VC003GL vacuum cleaners are fantastic machines for any cleaning professional or facilities manager to add to their kit thanks to their high output, large tank capacities and ability to house two batteries at the same time – keeping operators working disruption free for longer.”
