          Stops functioning after 20 -30 uses
          I’ve purchased 2 of these vacuums. First one worked a few times before it stopped turning on. I returned it and got a new unit. I use it only in the driveway to vacuum my truck after the kids ride along . It’s used once a month to vacuum my truck and after 2 yrs it has stoped working. I would understand if it was used multiple times a day for work but it’s merely for convenience. Would not recommend this specific Milwaukee tool.
            The Hose is a MAJOR issue
            Loved this shop vac even more than my dyson vaccum. However the hose is an issue. We've had it under a year. About 7 months and the hose just literally fell to the ground when I took the nuzzle out of the resting place/hole. For this brand I expected more.
            Response from Milwaukee ToolMay 14, 2024
            Hello! The end of the hose can be reattached by twisting the hose end counterclockwise to tighten it. Please feel free to message us at social.media@milwaukeetool.com, if you need further assistance!

              Five STARS
              Well I’m differently satisfied with small wet/dry vac. Don’t let small get you fool it’s perfect fits anywhere very powerful.

              Handy little sucker!!!
              Easy to use for fast clean up, it really sucks! A big time saver for those little jobs, no dragging out cords and the like. This unit will meet or exceed expectations. Pic shows I did buy this unit ( fight fake reviews!)

                Opened the package and it was the M12 fuel. Rechecked the box and I definitely bought the M18. Will definitely be returning but very frustrated with Milwaukee and Home Depot

                Vaccum hose broke, mechanical design needs review.
                I liked that it was portable and had the HEPA filters. I'm using it to vaccum fine dust particles my wood pellet stove produces. However after just 15-20 uses, the battery was only on it's second charge. The hose pulled out of adaptor on the vaccum side. This unit is quite pricy and it's durability performance was dissapointing on a critical component.

                  It is very powerful ! Convenient and as always goes along with my battery system.

                  Nice but broken
                  Well the vacuum works but the hose has a busted collar. it's only a matter of time until it breaks the rest of the way and starts pooping out of the vac.It was packed this way as there are no pieces or debris in the shipping box.Not the fault of The Home Depot, poor QC on Milwaukee's part.This is basically a worthless tool to me at this point.
