This one is pretty quick compared with my older Milwaukee 18v charger. We're talking minutes not 1/2 hours.

Milwaukee M18 FUEL PACKOUT 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 2.7 Gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum (Tool-Only) – Milwaukee has two M18 portable shop vacuums this is the higher priced Packout model that is compatible with Milwaukee Packout storage and parts boxes. The vac is light-weight (about 15 pounds with battery) and is a nice-looking compact tool with a fold down handle for attaching Packout boxes both to the top and bottom. A compartment under the lid provides storage for the vac’s accessories and the location for the M18 battery powering the vac. Accessories include the usual, crevice tool, nozzle and power tool dust-collection adapter. (Battery is purchased separately) The vac has two speeds and is very quiet on both. The low speed is pretty low, fine for light materials, dust, etc. without sucking up everything around it. On high it’s great; picks up wood chips, small chunks of plaster, concrete chips and small gravel and other debris. I attached the vac hose to the dust collection hose of an orbital sander; with the vac on high and with its HEPA filter it did a very good job keeping up with the dust.

(What's this)
STRONG SUCTION; QUIET; LONG RUN TIME; EASY to STORE and CARRY; SUPERIOR DESIGN — The Milwaukee M18 FUEL PACKOUT 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 2.5 Gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum (Tool-Only) makes my two current shop vacuums, one corded and one cordless, obsolete. The rectangular shape of this vacuum allows for more efficient storage vs. the typical round shop vacs. It has a wide handle for easy carrying. The attachments may be stored inside the high-quality case and the flexible hose fits securely on the outside of the case. It has a crevice tool and a very wide utility attachment for quick pickups of debris. The battery fits inside the case. The run time is dependent upon the size of the battery and whether high or low speed is used. I used mine primarily on high speed because it makes a cleanup go faster. If necessary, I can easily swap batteries. The long run time allows me to completely vacuum my car whereas my previous cordless vac battery only lasts for 7 minutes which was not sufficient. The high suction vs. my other vacs is a noticeable advantage. The 2.5 gallon tank seems to be an optimal size for most applications. The tank is easy to unlatch and empty. The vacuum may also be used as a wet vacuum or as a blower. A separate filter may be purchased for picking up fine particles. It is part of the Packout system for transporting tools easily and comes with a Packout lock. It would help if it had a long extension attachment which would allow debris on the floor to be vacuumed while standing up which would make the task go faster. It has a five-year warranty. It is made in the USA with parts from Cambodia and Viet Nam.

Quality :

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The best feature of the MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL PACKOUT 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum is that it fits into the Packout stack of tools. The vacuum measures ~16 inches wide, ~13 inches tall and 10 ½ inches deep (front to back). It looks like a large lunch box. But inside is a great storage compartment for a crevice tool, a utility nozzle, hose adaptor and battery compartment. A vacuum hose, approximately 3 ft. long is wrapped around and stored nicely in the side of the vacuum. This vacuum is designed so when you show up at the job you have everything you need to vacuum up any debris, and since it powered with a battery you don’t even need to plug it in. On the bottom half of the unit are 2 large latches this allows access to the filter and the debris collection box. The filter is easily removed when rotated counterclockwise. The filter should be removed if vacuuming up water. The filter fits over the float valve cage which protects the vacuum fan/motor. There is a bracket on the end of the dirt compartment which guides the inlet nozzle and helps with orientation and reassembly of the bottom half of the vacuum to the top half. The vacuum hose can be relocated to the exhaust side of the vacuum to make it a blower hose. The on/off switch is located left side of the vacuum and has 2 speeds, high and low. This vacuum is great little unit. The only thing that needs work is the hose adapter provided as an accessory. It is so slick and poorly tapered it won’t stay inserted in any hose, hose extension nozzle or tool I have. I think duct tape is the only thing that will make the hose adapter work. This a very minor issue. Overall, I would give the MILWAUKEE M18 FUEL PACKOUT 2.5 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum 5 stars. It vacuums up small debris and is very portable and has everything you need for a small clean up job.

Great Vac
I really like this vacuum. I also have the 0880-20 so i am also able to you all a comparison opinion. This new version is well made and the features stand out as Milwaukee quality. The high/low speed feature is nice and will be useful for areas that you don't want to be a nuisance. The hose tip interchange with adapter is a nice feature that i missed on my 0880 version. The packout features really are what gives this vac the edge, but if you are not a packout user, I would honestly recommend the 0880-20 for normal cleanup needs. The power/suction of this and the previous version is not that much different. They both have plenty of oomph, with this new version having a bit more suction............I don't know what they are comparing to in regards to the 60% more suction claim. I'd say it's more like 10% over the older version. But, the fact that this one is brushless means it'll last forever and not become louder as time goes due to a brushed motor wearing out. The only niggle i have with this one is that the 2 attachments fit in the upper compartment, but the hose tip does not when using an 8.0 battery, so plan on finding a place to keep it where you won't lose it.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
When I look at this vacuum I compare it to the slightly smaller Milwaukee Vacuum I already had (the 2 gal one). The first thing I see is this one costs twice what I paid for the 2 gallon one. But while it is bigger I can’t see much of a difference in weight. I can’t really feel the difference. So what you get for the additional money is more capacity, the utility of working with the rest of the packout stuff including the cart if you have that. But the most striking thing that I noticed after firing this one up is how much quieter it is than the other one. The difference really is striking and you notice it immediately. This one is far quieter. I love my 2 gallon one. I have had it about 2 years and I still consider it by far the best portable vacuum I have every had. And I have never had one ounce of regret about buying it. But if I had to listen to it a lot regularly I would consider this alone perhaps to be worth the price difference because the 2 gal is a lot louder. So you do get more for that higher price. And if you need the added volume it may be the one for you. If you are just doing small jobs and don’t need the extra volume (0.5 gal more) and don’t mind the noise the smaller one is hard to beat when choosing between this one and that one as far as value. So each has its place. I’m glad to have both and I will use both. One nice thing if you have both is it looks like it uses the same filter as the 2 gallon one so you don’t have to buy different filters to keep a spare on hand. I also like that the hose wraps around the outside where it is available quickly without opening up unlike the smaller one. One thing I wish is that the top had a place for a couple of the attachments so you could stash them there and grab them without opening it up. This one also has 2 speeds where the other has only one speed. So that is another delta between the two. I can’t see being disappointed with either one of them.

You just can't beat the milwaukee m18 batteries and tools
I have been using these a while and these 5.0 batteries will get a lot of work done on a charge. I use them in a variety of tools from drills to saws to leaf blower to weed eater etc and they are work horses. I love that every one has a charge indicator - not just the higher AH batteries like some vendors. I hav e several chargers on a charging station and a variety of batteries on tap so even if I'm working the whole long day with them I'm never at a loss for power. These 5.0's are a good size for a drill or impact driver although sometimes I like the smaller ones for light jobs. But where I'm going to be doing more these is the ones I reach for. My drill is probably the most heavily used of all my milwaukee tools so I use this size battery a lot.

Great quality product, well made and very compact. I really hoped for even more suction power. It's great that all the accessories are stored on the vacuum so convenient. Also, great not to have an electric cord to deal with while working. I do wish a brush attachment was included. We have used it around the house, boat, and its great to use in the car. It is so durable that I see it lasting for many years to come.

Powerful New Package!!
Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
I’m proud to own and review the new M18 Fuel Packout small shop vac everyone has been waiting for! I have the 2 Gal. Brushed vacuum. As compared with the similar brushed model, the Fuel Packout is twice as quiet as the brushed and also seems to have twice the suction power, the new Fuel vacuum uses the exact same filter cartridge as the older brushed vacuum, so a new filter replacement should be waiting at your local H.D. Or Ace. This vacuum feels even lighter and less bulky than the Brushed vac. Even with a 12.0 battery installed. Very easy and convenient to pick up and carry around to clean different area messes. The top carry handle does fold down to stow on either side! With a 12.0 you get a TON of run time, and with 2 power levels to choose from! Perfect and seamless transition between power levels while it’s already running thanks to the redlink intelligence on the tool. This vac works awesome for cleaning out the cabs of many different vehicles and equipment, sucks up chunks of dirt, loose change, pea stones, and 3/8 threaded nuts in the blink of an eye!! This vacuum has so much potential and flexibility it will help with whatever types of area mess you may encounter On or off the job site! works just as amazingly around the house, in the basement or garage and to clean up messes in various hobby workshops too! I wholeheartedly recommend this product if you are in the market for a portable cordless shop vac. I would like to see Milwaukee come up with a longer hose for this vacuum like they did with the 9 foot extension hose for the backpack vacuum.
