Lack of Power
Not impressed. Underpowered
Do not recommend at all. Cut a new switch and receptacle outlet in plaster covered by drywall. Barely picked up drywall dust and if the plaster chip was the size of a pencil eraser
It was no good. Ultimately just plugged in my smaller shop vac. I tried this both under battery and corded. Very disappointed.

Describe Yourself:
Clean job safe job site.
Being a professional you work safe and keep your job site clean, this portable vacuum easy to use small in size but does not sacrifice performance.

Absolutely perfect. Easy to use

Works fine
This vac works fine. Being cordless or plug in to a outlet is great. My battery lasts long enough to do most jobs. It would be nice if DeWalt made a filter bag for it.

Serious vacuum where there's no power hook-up.
I've been using this vacuum for a little over a year, and its been great. Powerful, and easy to use. I bought a slim nozzle to get into tight places in my car, and I use it all the time where there's no electrical outlet to plug in my shop vac. Highly recommended.

Not the power of a shop vac but is amazing for a cordless cleans everything I need it for I love the cordless
June 8, 2018
Very handy for quick clean up and fast jobs such as car cleanup or drilling / cutting holes as dust collection at cut site.. down side is suction is a bit on the low side and on-board hose is too short. Freedom of battery use is nice when on the go or for cleanup jobs in boat or car. Nice that this comes with a HEPA style filter at this price point.

Kudos to the industrial designer for cord, hose and accessory storage layout makes pleasure to use and transport.

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.
