DeWALT DCV581H

DeWALT DCV581H

Avg. rating
(930 reviews)
Based on 4.5 stars averaged over 930 reviews, here is what we consider the second best cordless wet dry shop vacuum. * These choices are based on a full computation of hundreds of cordless wet dry shop vacuum reviews from around the web.

The DeWALT DCV581H was apparently made for people who need shop vacuums for both indoor and outdoor use. It can run as a cordless model on 18-volt or 20-volt MAX batteries, which are sold separately, or electricity. It also comes with a washable HEPA-rated wet/dry filter that traps dust and, according to DeWALT, removes more airborne particles than regular filters.

  • A capacity of 2 gallons

Milwaukee M18 Cordless

Milwaukee M18 Cordless

Avg. rating
(158 reviews)

Cordless shop vacuum with blower function to boot, built into an portable package shaped like a tool box so you can store it along your other workshop items.

What we like:
  • Compatibility with all other M18 Milwaukee batteries is a non-neglectable advantage if you already use their other cordless tools
  • It seems easy to bring along and stow away
  • The 5-year warranty is more generous than the shop vacuum industry standard

DeWALT DC515B 18-Volt

DeWALT DC515B 18-Volt

Avg. rating
(568 reviews)

Portable battery-powered hand wet dry vacuum that comes with a 0.3-micron HEPA filter and can be used as a cordless, but only if you buy a non-included battery.

What we like:
  • That it comes with a wet dry HEPA filter sounds like a good start
  • We kind of like that we can use it with the power cord (goodbye dead batteries), but we are frustrated that the battery does not come with it

  • A capacity of 0.5 gallons
