Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Locksmith This sucks
Plenty of suction. Will pick up coins and screws with no effort. Its shape gives it a nice stable base so it doesn't tip over causing the float valve to close like my other vacuum.
The attachment size isn't quite right though. I tried to use the extension tubes from another "same size" machine and they wouldn't fit. The Milwaukee was just a touch too small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by steve4223 Versatile and portable: wet/dry/vacuum/blower
This is a wet and dry vac that vacuums or blows when connecting the hose to their respective end of the unit. The hose, case and components are well made. The (box) shape of the unit makes it easier to load/fit in the back of your truck or car.
In the picture, I've attached it to my track saw to use it as a portable dust collector, worked great for that too. For the last two years I've purchased the M18 Fuel Line from Milwaukee, love the quality and battery life you get from the brushless technology on the ones I own which are the Drill/Driver, Impact and Circular products. (2604-20, 2653-20 and 2730-20 respectively)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grogan14 Better than expected
I had used a friend's one a couple of times, and it left me a little less than impressed, for what it costs. Glad I gave it another try.
His must have had a very dirty filter, or clogged hose or something, as mine sucks quite well when using a 4.0 battery in it. I initially planned on using it for cleaning up after small little service jobs, but now find myself using it much more than I expected. Wired a timber frame barn last week, and it made cleaning up all the drill shavings that get everywhere a total breeze. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Well thought out vacuum
But wait- it is a blower too. I've put off getting one because, like every other guy in America- I have a shop vac. There are strings attached to these known as a power cord. Who wants to clean up after cleaning up? This Milwaukee you just twist the hose on and you are in business. The icing on the cake is this also can be used as a portable blower- with a good balance of pressure vs air flow. I mostly use this for clean up on client's equipment and I have been very pleased so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ih82spd Best cordless vacuum I've ever used!!
This vacuum is amazing. I have had other brands 18V vacuums and this hands down beats those brands in all categories: suction, power, accessories, quality of build, durability. I wish i would have bought this sooner!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RCAirman Great compact portable vacuum. Good power -poor battery utilization
Works well as far a suction goes. Really eats up the milliamps however. You don't get much time out of a 4000MA battery. Hose and tool storage could be better. I would buy it again however (perhaps along with a dedicated 5.0 amp battery so I don't deplete my tool batteries and run short when I need them.
Lots of static in the dust bin. makes removing 100% of the dust difficult. Should have been made out of static resistant plastic

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by doorguy Great little vac
Great little vac. I have had others and this one does the job better than them all. I have to keep an eye on it or I am sure it will disappear. Everyone wants it. I wish it was a little smaller so I could store it in my truck rack better, but overall I am satisfied.
