Best OSHA-Compliant Dust Extractor Shootout: Mitre Sawdust Extractors
Makita vc4710 is one of the most popular dust extractors in the market today. It was designed with durability and reliability in mind. Makita vc4710 has been used by many craftsmen around the world since its introduction in 2011.
Its popularity has grown due to its low price tag, ease of use, and high quality.
The Makita vc4710 is considered one of the most reliable dust extractors available. It’s main selling point is its ability to remove large amounts of dust from small spaces without damaging or degrading the workpiece. It is capable of removing up to 1/2 cubic foot per minute (cfm) of fine particles.
While it may seem like a good idea to buy a cheap, disposable product, there are some drawbacks to consider when choosing a dust collector. First off, they aren’t going to get your job done if you don’t have the right tools. Secondly, their lifespan isn’t as long as you’d think.
Thirdly, they’re not very efficient at extracting dust from hard surfaces such as concrete or brick walls. Finally, they tend to be loud and clunky so you’ll want something quieter than them.
The Makita vc4710 comes equipped with two 10-foot long hoses, a tool oiler, and an air regulator. The tool oiler is used to apply oil onto your cutting tools in order to keep them from becoming damaged by the spinning dust. The air regulator is used to maintain a consistent air pressure regardless of fluctuations in the power supply.
