A great portable, compact shop vacuum that can run on a battery.

 

When I first saw the Dewalt DC500 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum, I knew that it was a special tool. My biggest problem was parting with almost $100 to buy one. How could this size and type of shop vacuum cost so much? And why should a guy that has no ...

It runs on a battery. Compact. Portable. Easy to carry. Completely filters dust.

Cord is a bit short. Price.

A specialty tool that's great for specific uses

 

Decent design and build quality, performs a very useful function

A little more ergonomic thought would be nice, as would included batteries

This thing sucks, in the good way

 

I've had the DC500 for over a year now. It's good for a variety of uses. Since it is cordless, it will go anywhere, which is handy for cleaning the car after my child eats crackers.

Size, versatility, power, battery life

Tip over possibility, battery compartment, no charger feature

This is a well-built tool that works fine for limited uses. It is not cheap, but is designed and built relatively well. It performs better than any similar tool that I'm aware of. By "limited uses," I mean that it will not replace a regular shop ...

DeWalt DC500: portable sucking machine

 

After my second spilt cup of coffee in a couple weeks, and the embarrassment of driving clients around upon sawdust-covered truck seats, I determined it was time to find a sensible tool (ah, yes, a tool) to remedy this problem. Sure, I could stop...

portability, use with DeWalt batteries, wet & dry at once

no batteries included is a con for some
