Review this product
Top reviews from other countries
- I needed something small to take on the road with me to do clean up after some repairs at my daughters place;
- I needed a vacuum that would pick up gypsum wall dust (from sanding) without dying; and
- I liked the idea that I would only need to replace the battery and not the whole vacuum when the rechargeable battery eventually dies.
Well, this vacuum has proven to be a bit of a disappointment.
It can pick up fine dust without dying thanks to its HEPA filter and it is easy to empty the dirt collector. But, unfortunately, it only picked up some of the gypsum dust as the unit's suction was not strong enough to pick all/most of it. Also, the mouth of the vacuum is only about three inches wide so it quickly becomes tiresome to clean up anything more than a very small area. Moreover, the shape of this vacuum is also a bit odd and it is not particularly user friendly. On the other hand, battery life is ok (15-20 minutes with a small battery) and I liked the ability to use the hose to get at difficult to reach dirt. Overall, however, it has not lived up to many of the positive reviews that I had read on this product.
I'm keeping the unit because it has been used for several hours already and it is fine for the odd small clean up job but I would look for something else if I were buying again.
After 2 weeks the on/off switch stopped working. The vacuum is stuck on and battery needs to be removed to shut it off.
I will update if/when dewalt resolves this for me.
