Makita Cyclonic Vacuum Attachment

Makita Cyclonic Vacuum Attachment

The Makita Cyclonic Vacuum Attachment (model 199553-5) fits Makita 18V  and 12V hand vacuums. It “turbos” debris removal, capturing up to 90% of dust particles reduces the need to empty the main canister or filter by 84%. That lets you run the vacuum longer and pick up much more dirt and debris.

The design is simple, and the canister rotates a full 360-degrees to let you get into tight spaces as needed. Makita also made disposal simple with a one-touch release button.

While not a “game-changer” sort of tool accessory, at $35 this vacuum attachment extends the usefulness of your existing 12V and 18V hand vacs. It seems especially helpful considering the limited collection we’ve experienced with the Ryobi Evercharge stick vacuum. We love seeing improvements on existing tools—particularly when they make them better.

If you have one of the compatible vacs, you may want to check this out. I know that our in-house vacuums fill up quickly, so a cyclonic “sidecar” could definitely improve productivity.
