Hilti VC150-10 XE Dust Extractor Review
The Hilti VC150-10 XE Dust Extractor is manufactured by Hilti. It was released in July 2014. Its price range from $249-$299 depending on the model.
In September 2015, it became available at Amazon US (Amazon) and Amazon UK (Amazon). At the time of writing this post, it’s still unavailable at Amazon Canada (Amazon).
It comes with two different models: one is the standard version which costs $199, while the other one is the “VIP” version which costs $299.
The VC150-10XE features a single chamber design. It has a capacity of 10 ounces of compressed air. It uses a high efficiency compressor to compress the air into vaporized dust, which can then be inhaled through a straw or syringe.
The VC150-10XE is compatible with all types of cigarettes, including electronic cigarettes. However, it does not work well with eGo batteries because they do not have enough power to produce sufficient pressure inside the unit. Therefore, if you use an eGo battery, you will need to replace it before using the VC150-10XE.
The unit requires 4 AA batteries to power the motor. It is available in five different colors: red, yellow, blue, green and black. Its dimensions are 5.5″ x 3.5″ x 1.
