          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.

            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!)

              Bye Bye Shark
              I purchased this for myself. As Valentine's Day approached I did not know what to gift my wife. So.....What's better than a red heart filled with candy?- A Milwaukee back pack vac. Winner. This machine rocks and my wife has since trashed the shark.

              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.

                  M-18 Packout Vacuum
                  I bought this as a replacement to my regular M-18 Vacuum that by the way still going strong after 3 years of use, the packout version is awesome here I thought the regular one was great this one is even better and more bigger and powerful! I absolutely love that it has 2 different suction power settings this vacuum is just freaking AWESOME Ofcourse it’s a Milwaukee I’m expecting the same if not even more years of great service out of it. Well built and great features everything about it is better I’m glad I got it as a addition to My arsenal of Packout equipment

                    My favorite of all my many red tools
                    This is the one I use the most frequent, daily for 6+mos. Not for jobsite cleanup but something far more demanding, living in a timberframe needing to get high up on a ladder to clean wood beams, window sills stone walls, fireplace, ladybugs, cobwebs, tons of pet hair, light fixtures, leaves, mud. I have central vac, two i7 Roombas, other M18 shop vac and one 120v shop vac. This unit replaces ALL of that. Does in 24 mins ( I timed it) what it takes two Roombas 2 hours to do without getting clogged including the time it takes to empty the bin and smack the filter on a post. Couldn't be easier to clean. No bags. Filter can be blown out with air or smacked out most of the time. 30-45 mins run time on a new 12.0 batt on high. Around 25-30 on 8ah batt. A bit on the heavy side, around 30 lbs with big batt. Excellent value and performance compared to what the other offerings are for a commercial backpack vacuum. Suggested improvement would be more available attachments. Works ok with SOME aftermarket tools. A nylon bristle brush would be really great. Some onboard storage for the tools would be nice too but at this weight, maybe it's best to leave them off. Just use a tool belt for some frequently accessed tools. I feel like you might need to be careful with the hose. And the wand, while needing to be lightweight understandable, you need to be careful not to drop or dent it.
