This could be so much better!
I have used this Dust Collector for about 6 months now - First off - this is a dust collector and not a shop vac ! I used this on a large drywall project - worked well at collecting the dust and then on my table saw and miter saw - worked well too.
A nice feature is the auto on outlet - where you plug your tool into the dust collector and it will automatically turn on and off when you run your tool.
My big pet peeves with this is that the hose really is bad - it leaves black marks everywhere! If you use this as a light shop vac - even to clean up the floor - the solid steel tubing clogs very easily!
In closing - if you are buying this as a dust collector - it will do the job - If you expect this to be a shop vac - not so much!

Worth the price if you need a Dust Extractor...
I bought this off Amazon about 18 months ago and have used it for everything from dust extraction on my drum sander to cleaning up jobsites. IT IS NOT A SHOP VAC...let's get that clear. It's called a dust extractor for a reason. This vac clogs easily with large debris and can be a pain to clear with such a small diameter hose. It serves it's purpose well for dust extraction. If you need a Shop Vac, buy a Shop Vac. Compared to my CDC Larue dust vac, it's well worth the price. There is a difference in suction but that's to be expected considering the dewalt is less than half the price of the CDC and it clogs up just as often.

The Good:
-Self cleaning filters provide consistent suction even with fine particles like drywall dust
-Filters last a long time, are washable, and are reasonably priced...I'm still using the original set and have not needed to clean them yet.
-Large wheels on the back and casters on the front for mobility
-Thick plastic body is very durable
-Fairly lightweight when empty
-Large capacity
-Bags available make emptying the vac very easy
-Adjustable suction
-Tool activated feature
-Meets EPA LEAD requirements

The Bad/Needs Improvement:
-Locking hose mechanism is bulky when hooked up to hand power tools...I'd prefer a generic friction fit hose instead
-Hose leaves black marks on everything it rubs against
-Hose easily unscrews from locking ends
-Hose is plastic and fairly stiff compared to other more flexible rubberized hoses
-No accessories included...a brush or wand would have been nice for the price
-Hose storage is clumsy
-No storage for accessories
-Requires some Macgyver skills to hook up to 2 1/2" ports(I use a dust cyclone with my drum sander, planer, shaper, and table saws for large quantities of dust collection

Now with all that being said, I am about as anti-dewalt as it gets. This is the only tool I've ever bought from dewalt and it gets used daily. I am very satisfied with the purchase...might even consider buying a second one for multiple jobsites. It mainly gets 4 stars because of the hose. If they switch to a different hose material and get rid of the proprietary locking system that they are so proud of, I would give 5 stars.

Amazing shop vac, picks up everything! Dust, nails, screws, everything gets sucked up in this vacuum, and the paper bag makes cleanup easy and fast.

Would be a 5* review, but the black hose marks up everything it touches so be careful. Also definitely buy the accessory kit.

WOW greatest vacuum made!
long hose is great recommend getting thenough clips that hold the cord to the hose makes the system complete except of course that it doesn't come with normal vacuum accesories which are available for $100 more maybe throw a bone put one or two basic ones included and attached but it really isn't a shop vac it's a specialized highly refine piece of machinery that does exactly what it was designed to do and was the best purchase I have made this year despite my petty gripes BUY IT!

really really sucks!
Proprietary hose but great nonetheless. Love the tool plug. Best part is the self cleaning filters. Wish it came with a full kit (filters/bags, wands, beater and nozzles) best extractor out of the box

Best Sho-vac I've ever owned!!
I've only own this a month so far, but I can already tell you this is the best Shop-Vac I have ever owned! It's so nice to be able to vacuum dry wall dust and not have to stop every 15 minutes to clean out the filter.

About every 30 seconds you'll hear kind of a popping noise. This Shop-Vac has two filters. The filters alternate back and forth taking turns cleaning themselves out one at a time, which is what the popping noise is...the filter being cleaned.

next generation
this would be even more amazing if Dewalt made the top tray hold either or both T-stak and / or Tough System AND they made a Cyclone and box to go on top for even better suction and easier cleaning (like the Ultimate Dust Deputy). It would be amazing to throw the grinders, drills, power cords, accessories, cyclone all on top, wheel it all in in one trip.

Other upgrades that would be nice to see
- Non marking wheels
- Control and tool plug in covered from above to prevent water getting in from rain, etc.

This newest model works incredibly well, the cone filters have made a huge difference. Power tool actuation works incredibly well and saves time, and a power cord. Adjustable suction changes amp draw too, which is great when there is not 20 or 15 amp circuits on site.

I'll help design if asked...

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
