Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved it and then the switch died at month 10 This is a strong vacuum. However grit comes out the unit because the exhaust valve is poorly located. Other than that good. However, for the price I expected it to last years, not months. It simply won't turn on. Just a quick on sound then off. Obviously a defect with the "electrical" connection/s. I have been so disgusted I simply didn't want to deal with this until now (13 months after I purchased it - I hope I can get some help - it's supposed to be a three year warranty.

Is it optional to remove the filter for vacuuming things like scattered kitty litter, mouse poop, etc. so that it doesn’t get caught in the filter?

Asked by: mom2gr8boys
Hello mom2gr8boys Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience in finding information. It is not recommended under any circumstances to use the vacuum without the filter in place. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT

Do you have Wet Dry vacuum? The brand.
Asked by: Hug
I have two wet/dry vacs... both Dewalt. I have the 1/2 gal and the 2 gal one. I love them both equally. The hose for the 2 gal is longer so it’s more versatile... but the smaller one is still very useful.

does this work for vacuuming charcoal ash?

Asked by: SamPV
I don't see why not as long as the ash is not hot. the black part of the vacuum is where the ash would go and its made of plastic that would not take heat
