DeWALT DC515K 18-Volt Wet/Dry Vacuum Review and Prices


Designed for one-handed operation, the DeWALT DC515K 18-Volt wet/dry vacuum combines the power of a wet/dry vacuum in the portability of a cordless unit. About the size of a breadbox, this compact tool works fine for both wet and dry pickup. It's...

Cordless, one-handed operation, compact, dual cleanup modes, expandable hose stores on the tool, includes 18-volt battery and charger, battery can be used in other 18-volt DeWALT tools, heavy-duty construction, HEPA filter is easy to remove and rinse...

Small 1/2-gallon capacity tank, expandable hose only extends to 3 feet, no attachments, seems loud due to high-pitched sound

Dewalt Cordless 18volt


Works real good for quick clean up.. nothing i would clean the house with but works excellent for keeping the truck and boat clean. Not real impressed with the price but overall very good product.

Great for small clean-ups- cars and boats.


Bought this for my dad on Father's Day and was well worth every penny. He uses it to clean up in his car, around his office, and especially when our boat gets dirty/wet. Perfect for small cleaning jobs and a great item for every family to have.

Great little vac


Haven't used it for anything major, but for basic cleanup in hard to reach places, it's great. Picks up well and just easy because you don't have to drag something out and find a place to plug it. This makes it quick. I would like to find some...

The unit works well for SMALL clean ups and is nice because you don't need to run a cord like a regular vac. If you need to buy a replacement battery for the couple of extra bucks you get the vac too.

Heavy-Duty 18V Cordless 1/2 Gallon Wet/Dry PortVac


I had the opportunity to use this vacuum once while on a trip and it was great. We needed something portable that we could take with us on trips for misc. clean ups. We finally purchased one and I liked it so much that I purchased one for home. It is...

Great Little Machine


This vacuum is much better than our last portable vacs. The battery lasts for ages between charges and the power is incredible. The best surprise was how easy it is to empty the chamber. The fact that there is no bag makes this vacuum more economical...

Very good cordless vacuum


Bought this almost a month ago now from HD and we really love it. The one from HD comes with battery and charger unlike from other sellers. Picks up even the smallest dirt around, makes cleaning up a breeze. The only complain is the loud noise when...

Best cordless vacuum yet!


I have dogs and a three-story townhome with mostly laminate floors and I've burned through countless corded and cordless vacuums over the years trying to keep the place clean. All the cordless vacuums I've used in the past lacked the power to really...
