This DeWalt compact, dual: cordless or corded, with washable HEPA filter is exactly what we needed for our Data Center. Our previous ShopVac was old enough that i was difficult to find replacement filters for and it was blowing out almost as much as it was collecting. Now I can collect dust and debris in a smaller, more portable platform without the fear of pumping more dust into the air to breathe and be sucked in to the computers and servers I work around. I already had a 20V Drill and Reciprocating Saw set with a charger and two batteries, so being able to use the batteries on this vacuum saved my department over a hundred bucks.
The hose can be swapped to exhaust so it can blow as well as vacuum. It has a crevice wand and floor/wide mouth attachment. The power cord can be wrapped around the carry handle when stored or when on battery power. The only thing that would make it better is if it would change the battery while plugged in, but it doesn't so you'll have to remove your self-supplied battery and drop it on your self-supplied charger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PROCONTRACTOR 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.

This vacuum does the job that i expected it to do when i bought it. It does not have the suction of a Large shop Vac but you know that when you get a battery operated vac.The cord option is great if battery is spent and plug in power is available.Hose length is saficant . I would buy this product again...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by johnwebster13 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 thetoolnut1998 Yet another great tool from dewalt!
Yet another great addition added in my DeWALT tool arsenal. i purchased this wet dry vac mainly because i wanted something that is more portable than my big ridgid wet dry vac. i needed something that can just be grabbed and i can get on the job site even quicker than i would be able to with my big 12 gallon ridged. This product has exceeded my expectations. One of the features i really like about this tool is it's capability to use a battery or i can plug it in. I will more than likely plug it in but it's a nice feature. One wish i have that i wish DeWALT has considered to add is maybe some more suction power but overall it is a wonderful addition to my shop and will be used alot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D2B2 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAT Great quick vacuum
the vacuum is a little oversized for my average cleanup. however, being able to use battery or cord is super.
If you own the Dewalt 18v or 20v sets you will be happy.
