Does this vacuum have attachments

Asked by Rogo October 20, 2020

Answers

Yes it has a crack attachment and a carpet attachment.

if you plug the unit into a power source, will it charge a battery inserted into the unit?

No, plugging in only runs vacumn, does not charge battery.

What is the runtime on 20vMAX DCB207 1.3Ah battery?

Asked by Faraz July 4, 2020
5
Answers

I don’t know if you can say it will be a certain amount of time. Frankly, I didn’t even know that Dewalt made such a small battery. The smallest I have is 2 AH. I’m sure it will work, but I can’t imagine it will last that long. I use a 5AH battery, and that lasts a long time - at least 20 minutes of almost continuous use. So, it will depend on how you will use the vacuum. I have the vacuum that can run on AC too, so if need be, I can plug it in, while the battery charges. And with the right charger, that does not take too long.

What is the Maximun battery that will work with this vacuum? 3, 4, 5 AH to obtain the maximum running time?

Asked by FJC June 9, 2020
5
Answers

Any of the 20 Amp and FlexVolt batteries will work with the "Max" tools. The greater the Amp Hours (AH) the longer the run time. Maximum run time would be obtained by using the FlexVolt batteries, they are available in 6,9,and 12AH. Or, you can use the cord if an outlet or generator is available and not worry about battery run time.

There is a narrow nozzle tip for crevices. This is storage mounted in and part of the carrying handle. There is also a wide attachment ( non brush) that is storage mounted on one end of the unit.

Asked by Chris October 19, 2019

Answers

I don’t think I would. Even though the filter is washable, I’m not sure if it would hold up well. And I don’t think it can be rated for “intrinsically safe” either, at least with my limited knowledge of what that means.

I bought it for my wife as a birthday gift. That’s what she wanted and she loves it. The only thing is I’m not sure why the battery doesn’t charge when it’s plugged in not in use. Nice product.

I just got this item i ordered online today and put it right down to work,I’m installing vinyl Floor planks and it’s just perfect,it’s light,not bulky and really picks up stuff from the floor,my only issue so far is that it doesn’t have a rotating hose end like other vacuums do so my hose was getting twisted,but all and all really like it

The combination cordless or plug-in is great. Easy to carry and put away and clean is great. 2ah battery only lasted a few days with minor usage --- I recommend at least a 4ah battery with regular usage. Cats are afraid of it too --- a plus for me. Lol

I have used this beast to vacuum up water (on the floor, and out of a toilet), ice/ snow, dirt, sand, gravel, the left over grass on my lawn mower, even hair... didn't skip a beat. I have used it both corded and battery... No issues. I have only used a 20V 3.0Ah battery so I can not speak on the effectiveness of a smaller battery (as far as life). This shop vac is light weight, everything stores on it nicely and cleaning it out is a breeze. Cool part is that you can use extension items from other shop vacs and they work just fine. You will get a slightly stronger sucking power if you use a cord but a battery holds its own. This item is great for cleaning out your vehicle. It gets the job done fast and I have yet to really find anything this thing won't pick up... Mind you I haven't tried to suck up big rocks or a bowling ball. It's not bad on noise. My advice is to remove the filter and dump out whatever is in there before you suck up any liquids. If you don't... it will gunk it up and be a pain in the butt. I've seen it happen. Thankfully not with my stuff. I've had mine about 6 months or so and I use it very often. Thus far I haven't found any issues with it. I just wish the end of the hose wasn't slanted so a few more attachments would play nice on it. Other than that... I love this piece of equipment. I love the option of both cord and battery (for places where there is no outlet OR I just need it really quick. IT DOES NOT CHARGE YOUR BATTERY. If you are looking for something small and powerful... you've found it! Hope my review helps answer what you are looking for and please note that I was not compensated in anyway for my review, I bought this product on my own.

I bought this to clean my car primarily, and selected this because of the multiple power options. I have old 18 volt batteries that I wanted to get more use out of, and they last just long enough to comfortable clean my car (they are old and don't last long). So I can purchase either 18 or 20 volt batteries or use the power cord. The hose reach's all areas of my car while being placed on the ground outside each door. The unit is light and compact considering it is industrial. The included tools store nicely. The only issue so far is that the wide vacuum attachment detaches easily so I have to hold it and the hose while vacuuming (will check with Dewalt to see if any solution). And the only other downside is the cost of the filter, hopefully it is really a long lasting washable filter as stated. But so far very happy with this product!

Powerful-No Convenient- Yes!

Let's be clear this vacuum was designed for convenience not performance. It is a small well designed vacuum that is perfect for bringing to the "one day" job site. If I have to cut a hole in the wall for a electrical box or drill a hole through a cabinet it is going to make a mess in my clients house. This vacuum is perfect for picking up after those small messes. Being that it is cordless or corded it makes it that much easier. It's compact design and well thought out ergonomics that incorporates the hose/tools are integrated into the vacuum body without protruding outwardly. It easily fits in the truck in the morning without dragging hoses or cords...and the accessories stay put unlike my shop vac. It helps me be a better carpenter for my customers. That said it is not about performance. It has about half the suction power of my standard shop vac. And as you can see from the pictures, I attached a vacuum gauge to both to prove it. And compared to the "king of the shop" Festool extractor it's not even in the ballpark. But if you are picking up dust or wood shavings this guy is up to the job. Quick and easy.
