Great until the battery option quit working.
Purchased a year an a half ago. Light use to vac out my jetskis when putting them away in the garage, emptied after each use. Used about 20 times an now the battery option isn't working. Have to plug it in which defeats the purpose of a hand held system.

Convenient, not great suction
Love the dual power...suction is not all that great. Need to constantly make sure filter is spotless or it is useless. Even with new filter the suction is not all that great.

Great vacuum. We use it to clean up when making trim cuts to install shutters. No need to find an outlet. Use it to clean out the van at the end of every day. Highly recommend it.

It's a great little vac. Not the best and kind of loud but it does the job. It's light weight and compact. I don't use teh battery a lot but it's great for small onsite jobs.

I just picked this up this morning. I love it. I needed something I could use outside and also to grab to pick up stuff quickly and easily. This has worked out perfectly. The size is just right. It has great suction. The fact that it works on AC or battery is also great.

does this work or attach to miter or table saw?
Joriz on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't seem to.
I tried it on my Dewalt cordless miter saw and it fits loose in the
discharge tube.
Can't say for the table saw since I don't have one but I'm sure it doesn't
fit one either.
