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.

Dewalt Shop Vac.


Is it the DC500?

DEWALT 2 Gallon Cordless or Corded Wet/Dry Vac - DC500 - Features: Runs off of 12-18V DEWALT battery packs or 120V AC. High Efficiency Filter Traps 99.7% of Drywall Dust. Wet/Dry Filter Eliminates Change Overs. Washable Filter- Tap or Water Rinse to Clean. Heavy-Duty Rubber Hose Provides Durability and Flexibility. Drain Port on Tank for Easy Emptying of Liquids. On- Board Hose, Cord and Accessory Storage Provides Convenient Transport and Storage. Battery and Charger Sold Separately. Tank Size 2 gal, Hose Diameter 1 1/4", Hose Length 5', Voltage (DC Operation) 12-18 V, Blower YES, Tool Weight 7.2 lbs, Shipping Weight 10.5 lbs. Includes: 5' heavy-duty rubber hose, crevice tool and wide nozzle.


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.
