Cordless Vac - Makita or Dewalt

Recommended Posts


Looking at getting myself a decent cordless vac. Needing to reduce cleanup time, cordless for convenience and for obvious health and safety reasons. 

I have around 25 skins and 15 Makita 18v batteries, so it would seem the Makita is the logical choice at first. I’m looking at the DVC154 36v (18v x2) with Bluetooth, 74 CFM and 15L capacity. It is $559 AUD.  

The other option is the Dewalt DCV586. I have around 16 Tstak boxes and 2 trolleys, so this vacuum would fit nicely with my set up. It looks like it would have better suction (125 CFM) and having the self-cleaning is good as well. It is $889 AUD for the vac, 2x 2.0ah 54v batteries and fast charger. 


If anyone one has any experience or knows of any experience with either of these vacs, I’d appreciate your input.

Specs wise the DeWALT is better in most areas. The Makita has an advantage in the cordless tool control features because it uses Bluetooth over DeWALT's proprietary system. You could also look into the backpack vac from Makita.
