I bought the larger 20v vacuum first and used it for a year or so but it is not nearly as convenient as this little one for cleaning wood or metal shavings off the workbench as you do projects. I even hung it by its hose yesterday (I'm sure Dewalt would cringe) while I held the little nozzle up by a piece of aluminum I was drilling on the press and it sucked up all those flakes as they danced off. It doesn't have a lot of power and you lose its Hepa capability as soon as you blow off the filter with high pressure air but it is so handy for those quick little clean up jobs that are a pain to get out a big vac for.
