Dewalt Shop Vac.
 
Does anyone have one of these?
I need a new Vac. I have many Dewalt battery’s and I like the thought of a cordless Vac. But would rather deal with the cords if the Vac. Is weak.

I don't have one, but it looks handy...and it runs off either 12V, 18V or 120V. My White Cap distribution rep is coming today...I'll ask him if he's sold many and how the customers like them. He's pretty honest about the products they carry.

Yes it is the DC500.
Bet I can pretty well guess what the Sales Rep. is going to say.

He said he has one...he said it really sucks. Actually he really likes it.

I believe him. He said it's not the most powerful vacuum he's ever used, but it's fine for small jobs and it's convenient. He said plumbers like it for sucking out toilets without having to drag a cord around.

I think I'll get one. Like you, I have a few dewalt batteries around.

I have the first DeWalt 120vac/18V model vac and it is great for small jobs.

keep track of the plastic screw on drain cap when draining the tank.

I lost mine for almost thee years and resorted to using a cork plug until I 'found' the original plastic cap in my garage.
