Makita has launched a new 18V Brushless Robotic Cleaner designed for commercial and industrial use. As part of Makita’s evolving range of cleaning solutions, the DRC300 can map and memorise rooms for cleaning and can be controlled via an app to offer smarter cleaning, productivity and ease of use for cleaning professionals.
Equipped with superior 2D LiDAR sensor and camera technology, the new DCR300 18V LXT Brushless Robotic Cleaner can map and memorise up to 10,000m2 of space across five different rooms and use this information to not only return to its original position, but also track optimal routes for efficient cleaning. Powered by either single 18V or dual 18V LXT batteries, this innovative solution from Makita provides continuous cleaning power of up to 240-minutes over an impressive 600m2 area (when used with two 18V 6.0Ah batteries in parallel).
The DRC300 can be controlled directly by the unit, RF remote control (included) or with a smartphone via a bespoke app which offers users even more functionality and benefits. Here, operators can access performance history such as cleaning dates and times and the percentage of cleaning areas covered, which contractors can use as evidence or scheduling.
With a large 3L dust box and HEPA filter to capture very fine particles, and a filter clogging notification to show when the filters require maintenance, the cleaner comes equipped with one main brush and two side brushes, which are detachable without tools, and a large carry handle, for easy transportation.
Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita said: “With its intelligent features and powerful cleaning capacity, our new 18V LXT DRC300 Brushless Robotic Cleaner offers maintenance and cleaning professionals even more flexibility when it comes to commercial applications. Users can leave the cleaner to do the work, whilst tackling other jobs to improve efficiency on site. What’s more, the LXT battery can be used to power over 30 cleaning solutions in our line-up, as part of a battery platform spanning over 290 cordless products.”
The DRC300 joins an expanding range of cleaning solutions from Makita, including a recent update to its backpack vacuum portfolio. The popular VC008 40VMax XGT Brushless Backpack Vacuum, previously only available as a body only model, is now available to purchase as a kit with 2x 5Ah 40VMax XGT batteries and charger included (model number VC008GT201).
