Milwaukee M18 Cordless

Milwaukee M18 Cordless cordless wet dry vac

Avg. rating
(158 reviews)

Based on 4.5 stars averaged over 158 reviews, here is what we consider the second best shop vacuum. * These choices are based on a full computation of hundreds of cordless wet dry shop vacuum reviews from around the web.

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

  • A capacity of 5 gallons

DeWALT DC515B 18-Volt

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
