Professional Tool Reviews for Pros

Makita Xtract Vac Dust Extractor Vacuum Preview

The latest job site vacuums are starting to incorporate a new feature we really like: automatic filter cleaning. The Makita Xtract Vac handles this task by automatically clearing dust through the use of a rocker valve that blows air back through each nano filter at timed intervals. The result is that the filters stay clean and the 135 CFM of suction never stops. The vacuum also features an on-board tool-activated outlet that starts and stops the vacuum when you power up your connected tool. You can also purchase optional HEPA filters for even better dust collection. The best part? The vacuum is super quiet (for a vacuum), holds 12 gallons and weighs just 27 pounds.
