Dual Clean-Up Modes and Flexible 2-1/2-Foot Hose

Built to make clean up quick and easy, the DEWALT 18-Volt Wet/Dry Vac goes wherever your work takes you with its cordless design and 1/2-gallon tank. Contributing to its portability, the entire wet/dry vacuum weighs just 6 pounds. A heavy-duty latch secures the tank when the vacuum is in use, and is easy to release when it's time to empty and clean out the tank.

The DC515B also features a large on/off switch that is easy to access with one hand, and dual clean-up modes that allow you to choose between removing debris with the vacuum's front utility nozzle or an extendable rubber hose. The hose option utilizes a heavy-duty rubber hose that is both durable and flexible. And at 2-1/2 feet long and 1-1/4 inches in diameter, it provides the size and reach you need to get under work tables or in other tight spaces.

Washable 0.3-Micron Filter

At the heart of the DC515B's performance is a Gore HEPA wet/dry filter that's rated at 0.3 microns and traps 99.97 percent of dust particles. This capture rate helps to keep work sites looking their best and helps to keep the air you breathe cleaner and safer.

This washable filter is incredibly easy to clean. You can either tap the filter clean or rinse it clean with water--no big mess or complicated cleanup.

Bare Tool

This DEWALT cordless tool does not come with a battery or charger. It's compatible with the DC9096 18-volt XRP battery pack and DW9117 15-minute charger.

Vacuum is great for small clean ups and is very powerful.
LexusIS808
It is SO much better than a traditional hand vacuum that it's really not comparable.

Convenient and takes the batteries I already own for other Dewalt tools!

Its a little noisy, but thats because it's actually doing something. If you already own 18 volt DeWalt tools, batteries, and a charger, then this is a really nice all-purpose tool to have around for a reasonable price. I haven't used it with any fluids yet, but it seems to have enough power to do that with no problem. The quick-change-quick-charge batteries are just as handy on this as they are on all of the other DeWalt tools. This won't do what a shop vac does, but it handles medium-small particles nicely. It doesn't come with any tools other than the detachable hose. The pictures are not always exceedingly clear, but the hose is normally stretched over the handle and anchored in the small yellow end which serves as the main vacuum nozzle. This "nozzle" is hard plastic with a fixed shape, but it seems to work well for most encounters. The detachable hose stretches out a few feet so it reaches about as far as an arm can reach, making it is handy, too. I think that this is worthy of the DeWalt name.

O.K., this thing is a beautiful piece of equipment. Don't listen to all the nit-picking garbage of some of these other reviews.

1) Yes, it is a bit on the loud side. The motor has virtually no sound insulation with the obvious reason of keeping the weight and size minimal. This really is not a big deal as you are probably only using it for a couple minutes at a time. I'm actually a bit shocked that so many people seem to have such a problem with the noise. From the reviews you'd think that they are holding a jet engine in their hand. If you have any experience with power tools or shop vacs, the noise is a non-issue, just don't use it next to someone napping on the couch!!

2) The suction power for its size and weight is exceptionally good. It is SO much better than a traditional hand vacuum that it's really not comparable. My Hoover wet-dry hand vac was instantly rendered pointless and offered to my neighbor as a gift.

3) No, the capacity is not terribly large, but it is not designed for picking up a great deal of material. If you're concerned about this, know that opening the container and emptying it is extremely simple and quick. If it's still not big enough, you obviously need a shop vac, not this.

4) Yes, if you are vacuuming up fine particles such as drywall dust or fine sawdust, the filter clogs fairly quickly and you will start to lose suction. The filter is probably actually a bit TOO good for very fine particles. Nothing gets through it. Both a positive and negative really. My recommendation is to simply remove the cylinder type filter after EVERY use with fine material and clean it by smacking it a few times on your palm over a garbage can, preferably outside.

Just got this vacuum today and it is great. Has wonderful suction. Other reviews talk about it being noisy. This is not true. It is no louder than any other dust buster. I bought it without the battery as we have plenty of them from other Dewalt tools. I have already thrown away my dust buster. Highly recommend it.

I am really impressed with the size and pick up power of this hand held vac, and if it didn't look so "industrial" I would replace our indoor Dust Buster hand vac with this one (my wife would strongly object).

DeWalt makes it very easy to get up and running with this hand vac almost immediately after you open the box. It's pretty easy: I opened up the shipping box, spent a minute unpacking the vacuum, popped in a charged up 18v battery, and I was ready to go. Just note this package does not include the battery - you should have one or purchase one with the charging unit.

The noise level is acceptable, too, and is not annoying at all to me. I especially like the hose attachment that allows you to get in the hard-to-reach places.

One thing I don't like is the filter cartridge in the unit, but then again I hate the filter cartridge in my shop vac - vacuuming up lots of sawdust just covers the filtration cartridge with crud. To help combat that for this unit as well as your shop vac, I recommend getting a length of the foot section of an old pair of your wife's panty hose and place it over the filter held together with a rubber band. You will still have to clean it just as frequently, but it is a lot easier and less expensive to take off the old hose and shake it out vs. buying a lot of the filter cartridges over time.

I call this One-Bad-Mamma-Jamma dustbuster! My wife calls it the Roach-Sucker. If you pull the hose out of the nozzle you can stretch it out and chase down even the most wiley roach. Just get the nozzle close the the little runner and he's toast. Oh, remember to empty it out before the roach starts decaying in the bin...
This is not a toy like every useless rechargeable dustbuster. It's a real shopvac, just smaller. It has enough suction to replace a low-end shop vac, but be warned, it is about as loud as a full size vac too.
The bare tool is a great way to get the vac at a reasonable price if you already have an 18v drill or whatever. You'll toss out the crappy little dust buster and never look back. Just be careful cleaning up really fine dusty messes, it is difficult to clean stuff like drywall dust out of the filter.
