Great little work horse! Rated 5 by Anonymous
"This little vacuum has incredible performance. I've compared it side by side to a band new DC500 and it simply out performs it hands down even with a cord plugged in The suction is strong enough to pull dog hair from seats and carpet in a car (competitor could not). Just remember this tool was designed for little jobs and work on battery powered, so don't expect it to run for ever. Perhaps the designers could create a 120Vac to 18Vdc adaptor accessory as an option. All in all, well designed, nice shape (not some weird and hard to pack shape), and great suction. I does what it was designed to do, vacuum. A great tool for any handy person."

Serious Let Down Rated 1 by Anonymous
"I received this product as a gift. Being a Milwaukee tool fan and owning a shop i built for my hobbies, I was very excited about it. After opening it and ensuring I had a fully charged M18 battery, I set off around the shop to see what it would do. I used it for about 30 seconds and turned it off to move some things. When I went to turn it on again, I heard start for about 2 seconds then it was dead. Ive tried everything I can do, different M18 battery, and nothing. So, it was great for about 32 seconds total and now its a dead pretty plastic shell. Huge let down in Milwaukee."

Powerful, light.....Low run time Rated 4 by Anonymous
"I use this vacuum all the time servicing furnaces and boilers. It is quite powerful compared to even the corded 11/4" vacuums. The noise is not unbearable, there is a place to put the hose and all the connections, and the flat top makes this perfect for sitting on. (they really did their homework on this one) The biggest issue that this unit has is the short runtime (10-12min on a 4ah battery). For the amount of air pressure this produces I am sure a lot of juice is needed but I wonder if a better version (brushless) might help this issue."

Gets the job done Rated 4 by Anonymous
"We use these vacuums in an industrial environment at an automotive plant. We use them to suck up oil in hundreds of drips trays per day. The portability allows our guys to move quickly between locations, no hassles with cords. So far only flaw we have found is with the design of the lower buckles used to hold the bucket onto the vacuum, as they break off easily. We installed a metal one in its place with pop rivets and back to work it goes, minor set back. Other then that we cannot expect more from it."
