Makita has just released a new 18V cordless hand vacuum that has got everyone talking. The hand vac accepts Makita’s 18V compact lithium ion batteries, and comes with an extension, swivel floor nozzle, crevice tool, and 2-stage cloth filters.
The BCL180W includes the vac, standard accessories, one battery, and a 15-min rapid charger, and the BCL180ZW requires you to supply your own battery and charger.
While this does seem like a pretty handy and well designed tool, the price is a bit high – $99 for just the vac. Maybe the upcoming 10.8V vac will be a bit more reasonably priced.
If you can live without the extension and swivel floor nozzle, we would recommend that you take a look at any of the number of other more affordable cordless hand vacs.
