    Review of Dewalt 1/2 Gal 18V. Cordless Wet / Dry Vac, September 24, 2007

    John (Michigan) –

    Its a little noisy, but thats because it’s actually doing something. If you already own 18 volt DeWalt tools, batteries, and a charger, then this is a really nice all-purpose tool to have around for a decent price . I haven’t used it with any fluids yet, but it would appear to have enough power to do that with no problem. The quick-change-quick-charge batteries are just as handy on this as they are on all of the other DeWalt tools. This won’t do what a shop vac does, but it handles medium-small particles nicely. It doesn’t come with any tools other than the detachable hose. The pictures are not always exceedingly clear, but the hose is normally stretched over the handle and anchored in the small yellow end which serves as the main vacuum nozzle. This “nozzle” is hard plastic with a fixed shape, but it would appear to work well for most encounters. The detachable hose stretches out a few feet so it reaches about as far as an arm can reach, making it is handy, too. I think that this is worthy of the DeWalt name.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: DEWALT Bare-Tool DC515B 18-Volt Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet/Dry Portable Vacuum (Tool Only, No Battery) (Tools & Home Improvement)
    O.K., this thing is a beautiful piece of equipment. Don’t listen to all the nit-picking garbage of some of these other reviews.

    1) Yes, it is a bit on the loud side. The motor has virtually no sound insulation with the obvious reason of keeping the weight and size minimal. This really is not a big deal as you are probably only using it for a couple minutes at a time. I’m actually a bit shocked that so many people seem to have such a problem with the noise. From the reviews you’d think that they are holding a jet engine in their hand. If you have any experience with power tools or shop vacs, the noise is a non-issue, just don’t use it next to someone napping on the couch!!

    2) The suction power for its size and weight is exceptionally good. It is SO much better than a traditional hand vacuum that it’s really not comparable. My Hoover wet-dry hand vac was instantly rendered pointless and offered to my neighbor as a gift.

    3) No, the capacity is not terribly large, but it is not designed for picking up a great deal of material. If you’re concerned about this, know that opening the container and emptying it is extremely simple and quick. If it’s still not big enough, you obviously need a shop vac, not this.

    4) Yes, if you are vacuuming up fine particles such as drywall dust or fine sawdust, the filter clogs fairly quickly and you will start to lose suction. The filter is probably actually a bit TOO good for very fine particles. Nothing gets through it. Both a positive and negative really. My recommendation is to simply remove the cylinder type filter after EVERY use with fine material and clean it by smacking it a few times on your palm over a garbage can, preferably outside. The filter comes out extremely easily after the collection container is removed. Just a quarter turn and it pops off. Simple and fast. As a general rule, cleaning the filter regularly is a must to keep the suction high.

    On the whole, an excellent item. I would however recommend to anyone from Dewalt reading these reviews to seriously consider embracing a crevice tool to attach to the hose. It would be an excellent addition and could be mounted on some sort of external clip on the side of the housing or perhaps the housing itself could have a storage opening engineered into the body of the housing itself to slide the tool into to store it when not using it. Other than this minor gripe, I have no complaints. I intend to go out and find a crevice tool that fits the hose, 1 1/4 inch, but I really shouldn’t have to at this price, it should come with one.
