2-gal. Max Cordless/Corded Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 449.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As a few reviews have stated. This vacuum does... As a few reviews have stated. This vacuum does not have as much suctions as the Milwaukee but the battery life is better and it does a good job for what it is designed to do. I have used it to clean up dirt and dust in the garage along with cleaning out the car. It actually did better than I expected on getting all the dirt out of the carpet in the car. I really like to portability for small jobs. I definitely wouldn't use this for big jobs. It wasn't made for that and their are bigger vacuums designed for that. I have used it on the carpet in the house to pick up some Styrofoam pieces. It works fine but to get the stuff deep in the carpet you will have to go over the area a few times to get everything. I have a small corded shop-vac that is about the same size. I haven't compared the two yet because it is such a pain to roll up the cord and hose on the shop-vac. That said I believe the suction may be slightly better on the shop-vac but storing the hose and cord is a whole lot better on the Dewalt which is one of the biggest reasons I got it. Overall, I like the Dewalt and it does everything I expected from it. I would buy it again if this ever quits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Little Vac. This little vac can take the place of a big shop vac for many jobs. I originally purchased this to start a siphon hose to remove water from my pool cover, which it does nicely. Being cordless eliminates the extension cord and its waterproof filter does not have to be removed. I no longer have to lug my big vac and hose out to start the siphon. Battery life is good, vacuuming out my SUV and our second car on one charge. The smaller hose diameter and the smaller attachments get into places that bigger ones can't. The short hose is no problem as you just carry the vac with you as you do the cars. Having the option of plugging it into the wall is also handy. The only shortcoming is there is no drain on it. You have to remove the top half an turn the bottom upside down to drain it. The lip around the inside will keep water inside unless you juggle it around. No big deal, but having a drain would make this a masterpiece of design and engineering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy, Compact, and Versatile 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 4 out of 5 by from Bought this as a light duty, remote use clean up... Bought this as a light duty, remote use clean up option around the shop and house. The design is smart and compact, as the attachments are all stored on the unit (crevice tool in the handle, for example). Love the cord or battery option. Don’t expect large shop-vac power. Blower is cool feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am pleased with the overall quality of Dewalts cordless... I am pleased with the overall quality of Dewalts cordless vac, fine for small jobs, the small diameter hose clogs easily if your sucking up much more than sawdust. I would like to see a model using two batteries and larger hose. My cordless Ryobi handles larger debris better, but is lessor quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little vacuum to walk around the shop and clean... Great little vacuum to walk around the shop and clean up with. Just wish the hose connection was comparable with the battery hand sanders for keeping dust down when working on a project. Seems that dewalt doesn’t offer adapters to fit as they want you to buy their dedicated dust collectors.
