There is a growing demand for solutions to reduce the amount of concrete and wood dust on job sites and in workshops. The Makita Xtract Vac® is at the center of the Makita dust extraction system, with an expanding range of dust collection accessories and attachments for use in drilling, cutting, grinding and planing applications. The Xtract Vac® combines top performance metrics with lower noise, less weight, and an optional Certified HEPA main filter system that meets or exceeds the Department of Energy’s standard for HEPA filters. For added convenience, the innovative blow-back filter cleaning system is engineered to extend the life of the main filter, the number one maintenance cost associated with job site vacuums.
The Xtract Vac® (model VC4710) is at the center of Makita's growing dust collection system, and with an extensive range of features the VC4710 is a top performer in the jobsite vacuum category. This is a best-in-class solution for dust extraction in concrete and woodworking applications.
The VC4710 is powered by a 12 AMP motor that generates 135 CFM of suction power and 92” of water lift to take on the most challenging applications. Jobsite research indicates that contractors clearly desire a jobsite vacuum that combines power with less noise and less weight with a smaller footprint, particularly for indoor and room-to-room applications. Makita responded with a vacuum motor chamber constructed of quality sound-absorbing materials, delivering an operating sound level of only 59 dB(A). In addition, precision lightweight motor components and more efficient air ducting allowed engineers to reduce the weight to only 27 lbs. For improved stability, the VC4710 has wide-set urethane rear wheels and enlarged steel caster front wheels to create a lower center of gravity for improved stability and easier movement.
On-Board Tool-Activated Outlet, with Innovative Automatic Filter-Cleaning System
The Xtract Vac® includes an on-board tool-activated outlet that starts and stops the vacuum with power tool usage. The VC4710 also features an Automatic Filter Cleaning System with blow-back feature, which is timed at set intervals to maintain filter performance.
The VC4710 features two flat main Nano filters engineered to maximize the container volume and improve efficiency, while capturing 99.95% of particles size 2 microns and larger. The optional Certified HEPA main filter captures 99.97% of particles size .3 microns and larger, which meets or exceeds the Department of Energy’s standard for HEPA filters. Included standard is a 1-3/8” x 16’ Anti-Static Hose, which is ideal for woodworkers in a shop environment.
