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).
Washable Wet/Dry Filter
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.
DEWALT's XRP Extended-Life Battery System
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.
