Why should the best shop vac be relegated to the ground when you could have it strapped to your back? Enter stage right the Makita Backpack Vacuum, the best backpack vacuum cleaner for its unique way of sucking up dust and debris. Connect your Makita power tools to the end and experience dust extraction as you work.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Makita Backpack Vacuum\r\nHaving a Makita Backpack Vacuum strapped to your back means you get to continue your construction work, without worrying about sucking up cement dust and sawdust.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nThe power of the Makita Backpack Vacuum is focused on dust extraction, at least when in use alongside power tools. With 64 CFM of suction power, you\u2019ll hardly see any cement dust and whatnot flying away from your entry points. When put to use in clean up, it has 44-inch water lift, a great peak power giving its size.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nThese Makita LXT lithium ion brushless cordless backpack vacuums are highly efficient as dust extractors. Not only do you greatly avoid sucking in dust, buts its 2-stage HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particulates as small as 0.3 microns! If sucking dirt as you work is what you\u2019re after, the Bosch Vacuum has that unique ability.\r\nBin Capacity & Maintenance\r\nDespite being a smaller device, the Makita XCV10ZX is a 0.5-gallon HEPA filter backpack dry vacuum. That\u2019s ample space for the job at hand, and several more after. If backpacks aren\u2019t your thing, the Ridgid Vacuum is stainless steel and holds 16 gallons.\r\nDurability\r\nMakita Cordless Backpack Vacuum Cleaners have to be air tight, considering it\u2019s sucking up as much as 0.5 gallons. That\u2019s nothing compared to the DeWalt Vacuum\u2019s 16-gallon capacity, but that\u2019s a different situation. Thankfully, it is tightly sealed, and the design uses as few pieces as possible to prevent any leaks. This is especially true when it comes to parts accessories.\r\nValue\r\nIt may seem pricey at first, and $449 is relatively high, the value you get when it\u2019s in use is invaluable. Normally you or your workers would wear a mask to prevent sucking in dust, but it\u2019s still possible to breathe that stuff in. The Makita Backpack Vacuum only reduces that issue even further. That\u2019s more than enough reason to pick one of these up, despite its price.\r\nMakita Backpack Vacuum Wrap Up\r\nThe Makita Backpack Vacuum has a unique ability to suck up dust and debris as you\u2019re working, reducing the amount of dust that you\u2019d otherwise breathe in, despite wearing a mask. Part of its success is through a 2-stage HEPA filtration system. And continuing to operate at 62 minutes on normal settings is value in and of itself.
