Our tools and accessories are made to live on the jobsite. That’s where they’re tested. And if there’s a problem, it’s where we solve it. The result is products we can stand behind.
Practical, chunky Dewalt quality but hose is too short for use with smaller tools for extraction unless you place it very close to work which is not always practical - when used with mitre saw for dust extraction it has less suction than an old Miele junior bagged vacuum and is much louder, also the Meile never clogs and will pick up anything that fits through the hose, the Dewalt filter choked on sawdust after 30mins reducing suction and even after cleaning the filter it struggles to pick up small off cuts or wood chips, still a good tool and does extract/filter fine dust from sander well but pricey given the limitations and you need to spend an extra £40 on vacuum ‘accessories’ that come as standard with other vacuums unless you want to use it on your knees. Best feature is portability and compatibility with Dewalt 18v batteries and smaller power tools, it does work well if you regularly clean the filter (which I do with the old Miele!)
Awesome hoover, use it almost daily on both wet and dry function and no issues so far. It's more powerful than the equivalent Makita.
As a committed DIYer I got fed up with lines of different chargers and cheap kit that failed just when I needed it so years back decide to standardise on one make of battery kit wherever possible. That happened to be Dewalt and so far I have not been let down. This purchase of a portable vacuum is no exception. One point to note is the Amazon page quotes 54 volt. It actually runs on 18 volt but could also use the new 54/18 volt batteries, I guess in 18 volt mode.With a lot of ongoing jobs including plaster repairs and paint and varnish stripping there has been a lot of dust and muck to clear. Collection has been through my big Bosch Professional shop vacuum or, more often because the Bosch takes too much space, borrowing my wife's hand vacuum. Unfortunately the latter was not made for the job and eventually dry wall dust killed it. That led to the Dewalt purchase.So far it has shown itself as a good in between the big mains unit and little handheld suckers. There is no problem with the filter clogging with dust and a quick run under the tap and its clean again and drys quickly. The capacity is huge compared with a handheld and the battery life with a 4 amp battery is much longer than I expected so have never tried mains use or considered a higher capacity. It has enough suction to do everything I want including pulling soggy, sticky solvent soaked varnish out of the stair carpet as effectively as the big Bosch Final plus is the on board tool storage.The hose is quite short but as it is mainly used with unit in one hand and wand in the other that is not really an issue. Unlike my big Bosch vac this one goes with you so there is no need for a long hose.If there is a fault it is the design of the waste container. This is blow moulded and has a large internal ridge all the way round which makes it a sod to empty without making a mess. Quite quick and easy to wash out though so not a deal breaker.For any pro or DIYer with access to Dewalt 18 or 54 volt batteries and charger this is a great buy (especially as my Bosch cost over £400)I find reviews help my purchase decisions so if this helps yours please click the like so I know I am not wasting my time. Thanks.
