Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meilleure petit aspirateur sans fil pour la maison Après beaucoup de réflexion, j'ai acheté cet aspirateur pour la maison à la place d'un Dyson. Je confirme que c'est un excellent achat. Points forts: -Puissante -Bon prix -Bien conçue de manière générale, en particulier le filtre et la répartition du poids -Garantie à vie -Batteries interchangeable Points faibles: -Demande beaucoup d'énergie, dure quelques minutes avec une batterie 1.5 ampère -Les petites roulettes au bout de l'embouchure se bloquent très facilement -J'aurais préféré payer plus cher pour l'avoir avec une batterie.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fineky The trigger doesn't always seem to work some times you have to pull the battery out and put it in and press the trigger 10 times or it starts for 5 seconds and turns off. It's an on/off switch so that takes some getting used to. The filter is also really quick to fill up and lose suction. If you try and use this on dust or sand you have to bang the filter in the garbage every 2 minutes. It works great for tiny spills or for picking up larger items. I'll keep it but I wouldn't recommend it for any cleaning. It would work fine for service calls to clean up a small mess and leave in your truck.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good portable vacuum for small jobs. I bought this vacuum to expand my 18V lineup. We primarily use it as our household vacuum instead of a bulky wired vacuum. I also use it on installation jobs to clean up my mess of sawdust etc. It has great suction to start, the filter can fill up after an hour, however, it's very easy to clean. Remove the filter and knock the dust into a garbage can, and remove the fine lint particles from the pre filter with your hands. After that, it runs like new. I recommend only using 4AH or 5AH batteries. The 1.2 and 2AH batteries die quickly and lack the additional power. The vacuum can be very noisy when the filter gets full, so keep this as an indicator and promptly clean it out. It is fully compatible with a large number of home vacuum / shop vac hoses and attachments, so it is very versatile in a home setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome vacuum This vacuum is great. So good in-fact that I started to use it in the house too. Its picks up everything. It eats sawdust, small chunks, drywall bits, and cat toys like it was meant to. However, I have to agree with a review from someone else. This vacuum really needs another extension tube, or make one available to buy. Being over 6' makes the back extremely sore after a while. Its that awkward half bent over usage that gets me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Sucker This is a somewhat hefty hand vac, considerably heavier and bulkier than the Dirt Devil model it's replacing. Lots of power, though the noise level is up there too. I've been using it primarily in the house with the extension tube and floor nozzle as a broom and dustpan replacement, picking up the debris the dog drags in. Works really well for that and I'm sure it will be great for the odd sawdust job in the garage. I'm using it with 4 amp/hr li-on batteries and seems to have good run time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is compact, portable, light and adaptable! Great little shop vac and extremely portable! This little vac is quick and easy to use without having to plug in my large shop vac and get the long hoses out. You can very quickly clean up without much hassle. It works great for cleaning the vehicle too! It comes with some attachments and works well but you can also add standard shop vac attachments too! It is not as powerful as my full size shop vac nor is it designed for huge clean ups and you wouldn't want to run it for long periods because it will burn through batteries. If you are looking for tool for quick clean ups then this is it. It is compact, light, portable and adaptable. I often combine this tool with the rigid blower and blow all my saw dust to one area and then suck it up with this vac and the clean up job is done in 2 minutes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little vacuum for cleaning up the bench I bought this a few months back when my wife mentioned she wanted a smaller vacuum to clean our carpeted stairs. This was 100% a fully strategic move on my part because I knew if she didn't like it that it was going to end up in my shop with the other members of its 18V family...now it lives with me in my shop and makes quick work of cleaning off my mitre saw stand and work bench when the dust starts to build up...oh and I had to spend another $350 on a vacuum of my wife's choosing haha

I'm reading reviews that say the filter (ac32vf1) cannot be replaced. Is there truth to that? That would definitely be a buying factor.

Asked by: slvrbullit
