Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well done tool, great upgrades from the original model. I had the original 18v Dewalt cordless vac since it came out new for many, many years, after years of very hard work it finally just recently died. It was one of the best tools in my clean-up arsenal. This new version is well thought out and very handy, you no longer have to open a door to place the battery in. The on-board tool attachment storage is much smarter, utilizing every space. Its easier to open and close for cleaning the waste compartment and filter. The cord wrap is in a better location and no longer blocks access to a battery door. The suction strength is great, from picking up very thin finish nails to heavy nuts and bolts. My only cons are; the on/off switch is under the carry handle and can be difficult to access easily with large hands and fingers from the side, and, when the battery is installed in the end it is very unbalanced when carrying with the top handle, the old unit had the battery in the center of the side and was better balanced, I find these to be minor issues at best. Overall a wonderful addition to any contractors tool set. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dewalt cordless Vac I love this little vacuum. As a professional contractor this is perfect for small clean ups, small liquid spills or blowing of debris. It is also fantastic for vacuuming your car or truck. It is not so great on carpet. My work mates thought it was a joke but now they can't leave it alone. I do wish it had a bit more suction and longer battery life but for what it is I love it. Its one of those tools one buys that you never regret purchasing. Don't get me wrong, its not a shop vac or a replacement for one, but it eliminates the effort of dragging out the shop vac for a little clean up job. I would recommend this tool all day long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent vac! I purchased this vac to replace a 5 gallon corded unit that burnt up on me. I had to clean light fixtures on top of an 8' ladder in a busy store. The Dewalt was light enough to strap to the top of my ladder and not have to worry about customers tripping over extension cords. I was using 20v batteries and only had to change them three times during the job. The filter tapped clean incredibly easy. And the container was simple to empty. This is the best small vac I have ever owned. I have 18v and 20v Dewalt tools. Having the flexibility to use either of them or a cord is priceless. Its ready in a flash to do what ever I need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Read the reviews, bought it, love it I use this vacuum more than I thought I would. It is handy, light, powerful enough to do all the jobs that I don't want to haul out my large shop vac for. The only complaint is that the hose is small and so I have to unplug it fairly often. I could either learn not to vacuum up larger, longer debris or I could fashion a long unclogger and so I use a long thin cherry branch and tackle anything I want to. It is also pretty handy as a little blower to clean out engine compartments as well as fitting my chop exhaust perfectly so that I have less saw dust blowing around. Overall I am very happy with the vacuum and would recommend this vacuum. August 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile lightweight vacuum Ordered this last week to hook up to my cordless ryobi chopsaw and 2 days after recieving it the back window of my blazer exploded. Figured this would be a great test. Got the vacuum out and it worked fantastic. Glass was 1/4 thick and had pieces about the size of quarter and it picked the pieces up without hesitation. Now with the pieces that size it did clog a couple times but I expected that with the size of the hose openings. February 12, 2015
