Asked by 50yearsinthetrades March 25, 2017

Fine drywall dust is a problem for any vacuum filter. The larger the filter surface area, the longer it will take to plug it up. Plan on replacing filter often, or knock the dust out of it often. This vacuum has a small filter, so it will probably plug up quickly with drywall dust. I would suggest some type of vacuum with a bag that will contain most of the dust as a "pre-filter" to the exhaust filter. This is how most home vacuums work and it keeps the filter from clogging up so fast.

Were to get replacement filters

I've had my M12 compact vacuum for about a year and am still using the original filter. However, you can purchase replacement filters here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-3-in-Replacement-Filters-2-Pack-49-90-1950/206140085

Can this be used w/o the filter?

Asked by AC August 31, 2017

Answers

No. Some of what you vacuum up will blow out of the side into the air you breath. Some will get stuck in the motor and blower fins. Some will end up in the canister. You'll destroy your vacuum, inhale some saw dust, and get your clothes all dusty. They should make a screen attachment so you can use it without filter. My Ryobi hand vac has one. It doesnt filter the exhaust air, but it allows me to pick up some larger stuff without having to drag out the big vac i.e. when my kid spills a bowl of popcorn on the rug.

This is a good tool for quick pickup. It cleaned up all the dust and cobwebs in my shop in just a couple minutes without the need to drag out the shop vac. It was easy to use when vacuuming the stairs from the garage and getting into the corners. The extension is just the right length for vacuuming floors and steps. I have several small shop vacs that I have used, but this beats them for general cleanup. As others have noted, the paper filter does a great job of keeping dust from the exhaust but plugs up quickly. At first I tried brushing it off with a small "acid brush", which did work well but took some time. Then I found a quick and cheap fix in the form of a 6 inch long sheet of paper towel and a rubber band. I wrapped the towel around the filter, then put a rubber band around it to hold it in place. It didn't appreciably effect the suction but did a nice job of stopping the dust. The dust falls off of it without much effort and it can be replaced in seconds. Like all Milwaukee M12 tools, the vacuum is compact and has more than enough power for what it is designed for, which is quick cleanup of dust and dirt in tight spaces. I do recommend this vacuum.

Like other reviewers, I'm a huge Milwaukee fan. I could not BELIEVE how weak the suction was on this handheld vacuum. It would not even vacuum up a VERY small pebble off of my truck mat. Entryway mat in the garage --- forget about it. Not even close. Even the 4-star reviews complain about the suction power. This average 3.8 review is very deceiving. I didn't even bother researching the reviews until after I bought this unit. It will go back to Home Depot immediately and shame on Milwaukee for even selling this piece of crap.

This is a great compact vacuum for cleaning up those small messes that happen from time to time. And it's also great for dog hair and reaching those pesky spider webs around your house. However, just so you know, this vacuum is not going to replace your full-size shop-vac, that's just not it's intended usage. As long as you understand that, you should be completely satisfied with this vacuum.

I also own the Milwaukee 18v cordless shop vac which is amazing so when this came out i purchased it immediately. I use it on my tool bench to clean up after small jobs. In the cars, on the job for small repairs. it will suck up drywall dust no problem and wire stripping. the attachments it comes with are very useful especially the long reach extension. its go go weight but not too heavy. Just enough weight to know there is a good size motor in it.. the charge indicator is nice. use it with 4.0xc batteries and you will be amazed. i only wish they sold replacement filters in my HD store loaction
