Makita introduce improve M-class dust extractor
Makita’s 447M M-Class dust extractor has set high performance and reliability standards throughout industry since its introduction and the latest version of the M-Class extractor, the new VC4210M, bristles with new features whilst maintaining a highly competitive price point.
The new Makita VC4210M fully meets the EU standards of protection demanded of the M-Class dust control regulations. This is the minimum standard permitted for legally compliant work in construction environments. The updated design has moved the motor, control module and main filter higher up into the upper body housing which increases the tank working capacity. This enables a 30 litre disposable bag to be filled and for wet suction the tank will hold 29 litres before the new, automatic fluid level valve shuts off the motor, protecting the machine from flooding. The tank sits neatly inside the double-wall moulded body housing on big rear wheels and robust front steel castors.
Available in 110v and 240v modes there are three variants: 110v models with and without Power Take Off to drive integrated power tools and a 240v model with Power Take Off. When connected to a power tool, the extractor switches off automatically when the power tool is shut down. The motor input wattage is 1000W for the 110v model and 1200W for the 240v machine. The 110v model with Power Take Off will provide 1750W for tool power and the 240v model 1800W.
Maximum airflow and filtration performance have been substantially increased for the new VC4210M extractor with max air flow now 4.5m³/min. The latest Makita InfiniClean™ automatic filter cleaning system uses the strong airflow reversed regularly through each of the air filter routes to ensure the durable PTFE filter is kept clear. Access to this high-efficiency filter is through a new large hatchback port in the rear of the housing, enabling access to the filter without having to remove the motor head. An air flow sensor will bleep a warning if the filter becomes clogged, the tank is full or there is a restriction in the suction pipe.
The new Makita VC4210M dust extractor has a flat top housing design, useful for depositing hand tools and accessories, and Makita Makpac cases can be attached using an optional accessory adaptor plate. Delivered with a 5m long, 32mm diameter suction tube, this versatile extractor has individual operating settings for hose diameters of 21, 27, 32, 36 and 38mm.
Dust extraction is a health and safety ‘must’ on all sites and the new Makita VC4210 M-class unit protects the working environment at an affordable price.
