Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreatDane DeWalt 1/2 gallon Dust Buster
I purchased this vacuum late one evening, it shipped the next day and I had it the following, extremely fast shipping and free. The day I received it I saw the same unit on Amazon for $10 less, I checked with customer service about price matching and was promptly credited the difference. This little vacuum will use the old DeWalt Lithium Ion (smaller) batteries as well as the new larger ones. I have both and checked the unit out with the smaller (5 yr. old) ones, after 9-10 minutes of continuous use it had the same suction and was still running strong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maverick Works great!
I'm a Realtor and ordered this to take to vacant properties for occasional minor floor cleanup. So far, have used 4-5 times. It's fairly compact and easy to handle, certainly beats dragging along a full size vacuum. Seems to have ample power and good suction. Very easy to empty. For price and convenience, would highly recommend. It's a little noisy, but is not meant for extensive cleaning periods. Having a small brush attachment that snaps onto body would be a great feature to add if possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ralphie Good Deal!!
Had been looking for a portable hand-held vac for a few months but never liked the price. I almost bought a Ryobi hand-held vac...until I saw the price for the batteries to operate it. It might have been a good deal...but it would have taken me into a different brand that I had no experience with. I went home and started "Googling" when low-and-behold I saw that Home Depot had this vac ON SALE for about $65 less than ANYONE else. I don't know why they were so much lower than everyone else...but three days later it was at my front door. Since I already had the Dewalt XRP tool set (w/two batteries and charger) this just dropped right into the line-up. I've used it several times in the last 2-3 weeks and like it a lot. It's a little loud but it has good suction and the removable hose has been helpful already in getting underneath a cabinet. I debated 5 stars versus four stars for the noise, but the others I tried out are about as loud as this one. Very good purchase. Very useful. I like it! The ONLY minus I would take away from this is the fact that it was NOT on display at the Home Depot store. I discovered that Home Depot sold the item, strictly by chance, on the website.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DTomas76 Great addition to any contractor's tool box.
I am a contractor and this tool has been a useful addition to my 18v DeWalt line. I've owned the tool for almost 3 months and it has seen quite a bit of use. It's lightweight and very portable - easier that hauling around my shop vacuum for smaller messes. Great for cleaning up finish work, small spills and light job messes (light drywall dust, sawdust, wood shavings, debris in window sills, etc.) Detachable hose has a surprisingly good range. Built-in suction head makes cleaning up debris around baseboards and corners a cinch. Battery life has been great. I am using a new NiCad battery on the tool and have only had to charge it once after many cleanups. Dustpan easily detaches for emptying. Only cons I have for the product is there is no brush or crevice attachments included. They can easily be purchased separately, but would be a nice addition to the tool. This tool is not a total replacement for your large shop vacuum, but it has defiantly been a valuable addition to my toolbox.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rob44 This Cordless is perfect for everyday use!
I bought this to use for cleaning ash from my pellet grill and other grills as well. It is so convenient, we find it replacing the other household type cordless vac we have.
I forgot to shake our carpeted door mat before washing and drying. When I removed it from the dryer, the sand left in the dryer and on the floor was a big mess. Grabbed the Dewalt Cordless Vac, used the hose attachment for inside the dryer, and the flat surface end for the floor.
I also have a small 2.5 gallon shop vac. Once the filter gets used a few times it seems to blow more ash out of it then stays in it. Plus I have to get it out of the box, put the hose in (hopefully the right hole) and then find a receptacle to plug into and most times need an extension cord. These aren't huge issues nor are they hard, but compared to just grabbing the cordless Dewalt from the shelf and going to it, they are big inconveniences to me. I have other Dewalt tools so I always have a battery in one device, and one on the charger so I am never without cordless power. I use the flashlight and drill every week it seems.
I would highly recommend this product.

So much more convenient than dragging around an extension cord and a "shop vac" on wheels. Plenty of power to clean the black carpet in my F150!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron compact size 18 volt vacuum
This vacuum is compact and light in weight and is a perfect addition to your 18v cordless tool set. It is excellent for vacuuming up small work areas or spills. The suction force is not as strong as I would like and the filter clogs quickly when vacuuming drywall dust so you will need to keep cleaning the filter. I would recommend it for the small jobs but shop vac it is not.

I have been looking for one of these for quite some time. I saw one on the job several months ago and I thought they didn't make it anymore. It is just right for little quick pick me up, I have the bigger one but this is small enough to carry around and is not to bulky, if I have a big job I have plenty of other vacuums to take care of it . This is right for that little mess you made drilling a hole or something and you don't have to pull out the extension cord and all that.
