Customer Reviews

20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion 1/2 Gal. Wet/Dry Portable Vacuum is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to store and use It definitely functions as a powerful hand vac - there's no question about that. It had no problem cleaning the workbench surface or taking care of the aftermath of a few miter saw cuts. The problem is, the form factor is very strange and I find it very difficult to hold, use, and store. Storage is a no brainer, it's shaped so odd and is so large it just can't be put into any of the tool drawers. Holding it is very strange as it has a slight weight imbalance which causes it to hang in your hand at a very strange angle. If you use the larger battery size the weight imbalance is very noticeable. It's also just all around very strange to hold. The fixed plastic nozzle is not set at the best attack angle and you have to sweep your arm to work it instead of just moving your wrist. The hose is detachable but so short it's useless for almost anything. Honestly, most of what this vac attempts to solve I can already solve with a good horse hair brush and a rolling shop vac with a narrow nozzle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is my fault! I work in a... It is my fault! I work in a resisdental place for mentally handicaped folks, so wall repairs are very, very common. Thought this would be prefect for what I do most of the time, drywall sanding with my dewalt ossilating tool and the vacume. No cords! Small, easy, etc... But that little filter doesn't like drywall dust! Cloggs very quickly, and it does eat even a 5 amp hour dewalt 20 volt battery. I should have known! If they offered a little drywall bag for it, it would be perfect for what I do! Don't get me wrong! It is handy! And I don't regret buying it. I still use it for small jobs, but don't for anything for more than 5 or 6 repairs! The filter cleans out easily with drywall dust, just tap it on something out side, and the filter seems to be very sturdy! Again, don't regret buying it, just not equiped for what I do half the time. I do use it on small jobs and love it! It will remain in my tool box in my work truck!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pros:I like the design. It is convenient to use... Pros:I like the design. It is convenient to use and easy to access the filter and empty the large dust bin. The design makes it easy to slide around on flat surfaces like the floor, or the top of a table saw or workbench. Cons:It works for cleaning up small messes, but is slow to use because of the limited suction. The suction feels roughly comparable to a dust buster. The relatively large fixed nozzle is too big for the available air flow. The inlet velocity is so low that it is difficult to pick up anything other than small loose dust and debris that is close to the nozzle. I sometimes find that it works best with a brush or whisk broom as an electric dust pan. It needs more suction (2x) and a retractable bristle attachment for the fixed nozzle. I'm going to make a bristle attachment, and see if a larger, smoother hose and other modifications can improve the airflow.

I have now used this for over 3 months around my shop and on some small jobs. It is perfect for the quick clean up of sawdust, drywall dust. I have also used it for the car for a quick clean of the floorboard carpet and seats. I have used the smaller 2ah batteries and they will last for the quick jobs just fine. Easy to open and empty as well and the hose is easy to detach and reattach. Just wish it had a narrow nozzle for the hose.
