First, I got the three Shop Vac brand 14" extension wands, to extend the reach of the short hose and save me from bending over. I then mounted 3 sections of 1.5" PVC pipe cut into 9.5" sections on the bottom of the canister.This gave me a place to securely store the 3 wands and strengthened the base a bit, in case it gets dragged around in rough ground enough to eventually wear through the canister.
To mount the PVC, I used six 1/4" carriage bolts and washers on the pipe side, with bonded sealing washers (metal washers bonded to thick rubber washers) and hex bolts inside the canister.
The smooth round end of the carriage bolts inside the pipe acts to lock in the wands a few inches before the end, and they slide in and out easily but stay in securely.
Next I took the little dusting brush that Amazon says is frequently purchased with the 3 extension wands. I wanted to keep this tool with the vac along with the included nozzles. Just as I went to screw in a pipe strap to hold the brush to the vac (a setup I didn't really care for), I noticed the the outlet/blower hole. The brush fits tight in there and solves another annoying thing about this vac.
The air outlet tends to blow things around, particularly for a right hander. With the brush in there, it directs the air flow up and away from the material you're trying to vacuum, and diffused the air stream as well.
All told I think the mods cost me around twenty bucks, and added just a little weight and height to the vac, but really increased the vac's usefulness and convenience, at least for me.
I'm a bit of a DeWalt fan and own many of their corded and cordless products, so this was definitely on the list of items I wanted to own.
-Its cordless AND corded!!
-Its not as heavy as it might look, my fiance even uses it without complaining!
-This thing can suck a golf ball through a water hose without its lipstick transferring
-The accessories fit the hose snuggly and don't fall off like other shop vacs
-Easy to clean, just dump the black plastic bottom/bucket and shake off the twist-lock dust filter
-Compact size but big enough to handle REAL tasks
-My batteries are from a drill/impact set and roughly 4 years old yet still last for over 25min vacuum time
-PLENTY of power while using it as a CORDLESS unit
-It sounds a bit more powerful while using CORDED power (higher overall operational frequency), but do not have an effective means of measuring this
-I beat the s*** out of my tools and have shown this unit zero mercy and can vouch for its overall toughness/construction. I do fear that I will eventually break the hose (due to its flexible nature) and will probably trip up and step on the other accessories (this is how all of my vacuum accessories reach their demise).
-5 stars would purchase again!!
-The d@mn exhaust for this thing is on the wrong side for a right hand dominant individual. I hold/carry the unit my left hand and manipulate the hose/accessory with my right hand and the exhaust/blower port will more often than not blow in the direction Im attempting to clean. BUT, this minor flaw is not a deal breaker! Just mildly annoying for someone who is a bit more OCD than not. I have, however, found a rather interesting solution to this...I take the wide angle accessory and shove it in the exhaust port. Not only does this make the machine just a bit quieter, but it also angles that air in any direction you'd like. Preferably away from what you are attempting to suck up.
-The blower side doesn't blow very hard with the hose attached to it. This is most likely due to degree of bend and ribbed inside of hose or the blade design. Not sure.
-Battery Removal: OLD STYLE SOCKET Battery a bit difficult to remove for an individual with large hands. I do not own the newer flat style battery.
Things I HAVE used it for:
-Vacuuming up drywall and garage debris
-Cleaning automobile interiors, floormats, dash+center console, ect
-Vacuuming up wood dust
-Portable cleaning solution for general in-home use
Things I have NOT used it for:
-Sucking up liquids
As far as performance this vacuum does OK at best. Easily picks up light stuff like drywall dust or wood shavings. But not enough power to run a floor sweep or pick up metal items like screws and nails easily. I pitted it against my other shop vacuums with a gauge. As you can see from the pictures it has about half of the vacuum pull as my go to job-site shop vac. And 1/4 or less than the, king of the shop Festool extractor. Still it is a lot easier to deal with for a one day job where I'm in and out.
