Before we get into the details for this cordless wet-dry vacuum we would like to point out this product does not come with a battery or charger. If you don’t already have Dewalt Power Tools with either 18 volt or 20 volt batteries then you will need to purchase them separately. Dewalt are a quality brand so if you do buy this vacuum along with the charger and batteries you will be able to use them with other power tools in the Dewalt range.
So, with that out the way let’s look at some of the features and pros and cons of this cordless vacuum.
Cordless – This is the obvious selling point for the Dewalt DCV580 as it makes cleaning up so much easier when you don’t have cords or cables to get tangled up or get in the way. It is also useful if you are cleaning up in areas that don’t have power outlets such as out houses or if you want to clean your car in the yard easily. Users living off-grid and boat owners also mentioned using it with great results. The downside to it being cordless is that it doesn’t have as much power as a corded vacuum and that you are also limited to the battery life which is around 20-30 minutes.
Lightweight & Portable – the DCV580 is easy to carry, just grab it and go, its compact design is perfect for ease of use. It includes a wide nozzle attachment and crevice tool attachment that are integrated into the unit. The way all the accessories and everything is stored nicely on this vacuum is one of the things we really liked about it and it has been well thought out by Dewalt.
Features – This Vacuum comes with a reusable washable filter and a heavy-duty hose that is also crush resistant. The tank can also hold a capacity of 2 gallons. The vacuum can blow as well as suck and online reviewers were impressed with its handling of liquids.
Versatile – From reading online reviews the Dewalt DCV580 has been used for a wide range of jobs such as cleaning up attics, cleaning a car between Uber Passengers, cleaning an off-grid cottage, cleaning up a boat and of course cleaning up workshops.
While it won’t clean ground in dirt on a carpet it will clean up sawdust, cat litter, wood chips and every day dust, dirt and spills.
While on the whole this cordless vacuum gets excellent feedback online it’s not perfect. A longer hose would be useful and the battery life will only give you 20 minutes use.
In conclusion, the versatility of a cordless vacuum is really useful for many of us but unless you already have a Dewalt battery and charger the added cost might put you off buying. If you are in the market for other cordless power tools then buying Dewalt and using the batteries for multiple tool usage might be cost effective. As you expect from Dewalt this is a high-quality product that does its job well.
