Offering convenient corded and cordless cleanup, the two-gallon DEWALT DC500 wet/dry vacuum sucks up big work shop messes and job site debris quickly and efficiently. A high-efficiency wet/dry filter handles particles as small as 0.3 microns and captures 99.7-percent of dust, letting you present finished products neatly and keep fine drywall dust and other health hazards out of the air.
Other convenient features include an on-board hose design, cord and accessory storage that makes moving from site to site easy, and a drain port on the tank for quick, spill-free disposal of liquids. This vacuum runs off either 120-volt AC power or optional 12-/18-volt DEWALT batteries (batteries and charger not included).
At the heart of the DC500'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. And since it's a wet/dry filter, you don't have to worry about time consuming change overs between jobs.
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.
In addition to using 12-volt batteries, the DC500 vacuum is also compatible with DEWALT's 18-volt XRP extended run time batteries, which provide up to 40 percent more run time than standard Ni-Cad batteries. And any XRP battery can be used with any 18-volt DEWALT tool, which allows you to expand your system by adding other DEWALT cordless tools (sold separately) as the demands of your job grow.
This DEWALT tool is backed by three-year limited warranty covering any defects due to faulty materials or workmanship (from the date of purchase). It's also covered by DEWALT's one-year free service contract, where DEWALT will maintain the tool and replace worn parts caused by normal use--for free.

Don't be fooled by its compact size, DEWALT's DC500 wet/dry vacuum can quickly clean up monster-size messes around the job site, garage, and workshop. And unlike standard wet/dry vacs, this cleverly designed unit has two power options: plug its power cord into a 120-volt outlet, or run it off of any 12 to 18-volt DeWalt battery for the ultimate in portability. The DC500 sucks up everything from wood chips and metal filings to sawdust and standing puddles of water. The vacuum has a high-efficiency GORE air filter that captures up to 99.7% of ultra-fine drywall dust. The washable filter can be tapped cleaned or rinsed under running water, and its unique design allows it to be left in place regardless of whether you’re vacuuming up dry debris or wet spills. The DC500 has a two-gallon capacity tank that’s equipped with a convenient drain plug for emptying liquids. It comes with a 1-1/4 inch diameter by 5-foot-long flexible rubber hose, narrow crevice tool, and wide-mouth nozzle. And it's backed by a DEWALT 90-day money-back guarantee and three-year limited warranty. The battery and charger are sold separately.
Great little vacuum. I have owned it for years and it has become my go-to vacuum cleaner. It has great suction on either battery or AC power. Good size/weight trade-off.Published 24 days ago by CarefullUser

Suction is rather weak but it uses your Dewalt 18v batteries. Great for vacuuming out the car or other places where AC electricity is not available.Published 5 months ago by Edwin Lin
