The new 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.

I have owned many shop vacs, ridgid vacs and sears vacs. I could not see me spending this kinda money on a vac but I was sick of the loud noise of big vacs in customers houses ie: custom homes on the ocean! So I ordered from FAO and figured I would try it out!!! :) well let me tell you all that I can have this makita vac on in a living room and the customer can have a tv on and they could watch tv and be able to hear it with out having to turn the tv up!!!! Cudo's to MAKITA thus is the best invention one could dream of, definitely like the auto on with shop tools connected, suction never drops like other brands due to the self cleaning filter system. If you do the math of buying filters for other brands for $24.00 a pop and you need to replace them every month that almost $100.00 a month, so far I have used this vac every day for 2 1/2 months and emptied it 15 times at least and the filters are still usable, where I would have of purchased other brands more frequently. Also when you empty the other shop vac type brands bang out the filter and put it all back together turn it on you get a PUFF OF DUST on start up, Not this vac. I highly recommend to buy this vac you won't be disappointed. Only down fall is hose diameter for my table saw is bigger so you needn't get the adapter port. Small diameter hose but it has so much power you can't believe it!!!!!!!! Hope this helps you on you thoughts.
