Rated 2 out of 5 by from I've written to DeWalt about this unit, but they seem not interested. The idea of a portable wet/... I've written to DeWalt about this unit, but they seem not interested. The idea of a portable wet/dry vacuum that runs on DeWalt-configured batteries is nice, but here are issues with the design they came up with: 1: The joint where the hose sleeves into the molded insert that attaches it to the unit fails. It's apparently glued in, they need a much better glue, or better, make a mechanical connection that won't fail. The hose is short, so this connection is constantly stressed, & constantly fails. 2: This molded insert that the hose is glued into is supposed to lock into the body of the unit with a partial turn. It continually unlocks & falls out. So before the glued in hose pops out of this plastic molding, the hose has already spontaneously detached from the the unit virtually every time it's used. 3: Beware: This hose is very narrow gauge, which means anything will block it up. If you're vacuuming anything other than the lightest dust (heaven forbid a tiny scrap of wood is buried in the sawdust...) it WILL clog. Pushing out the clog is a project, have long broom-handle at the ready at all times. If the broom handle is even a few inches short, it won't push it out. 4: There is no option for a filter bag. Bag-less vacuums all have the same problem: They force you to dump the dust, creating more dust, which defeats the whole point of vacuuming dust in the first place. 5: Bag-less vacuums rely on the filter only, which clogs. We need bags that fit this thing, and a HEPA filter. 6: The exhaust port on the side will blow everything around if you're not careful how you aim the body of the unit. It's in a very bad spot. There should be a swiveling nozzle on the exhaust port so you can aim the blower away from the dust you're vacuuming. This idea is great, but the design needs work, serious work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it I’ve had this for about 2 years now. I wanted to love this thing so bad. In theory it’s perfect, it hits all the bullet points. Corded or cordless with my current batteries, perfect size and capacity, nice attachments, etc. It just seriously lacks power. Very disappointed the first time I used it and Ive given it plenty of chances since then thinking I’d learn to like it, still disappointed. It’s fine for cleaning up small messes of shavings or sawdust but there are far better options like the small hand held Dewalt 20v vacuum for jobs of that size. I thought it would be perfect for cleaning out vehicles, it just doesn’t have the power to pick things from carpet it seems.

Good for HVAC work?

I'm looking for a good portable vacuum cleaner to suck up some sawdust or metal shavings from drilling and occasionally slurping out some water out of drain pans. I used to use the Stinger brand that is also sold here at HD. With this be a good vacuum cleaner for my intended purpose? Has anyone used a stinger that could compare it to the Dewalt?

Do I have to remove the filter before wet usage ?
Asked by: PawnStar1
No, according to the manual, P 7, Save These Instructions for Future Use, Intended Use...1st Note, (2nd paragraph): "The vacuum is designed to perform as a wet/dry unit with no component changes equired when changing from wet to dry, or dry to wet pick up." ...(and 3rd paragraph): "It is recommended that the tank be emptied of any dry contents prior to being used for wet pick up to facilitate tank cleaning." My extra note: and to make cleaning the washable filter easier.

if you plug the unit into a power source, will it charge a battery inserted into the unit?

thought this was a "no-brainer" but that would negate the need for another charger.....

2... a crevice tool, and a 5" wide nozzle attachment. I also use a brush from a (very) old, defunct B and D, so there must be some sort of standard to the 1 1/4" nozzel OD.
