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
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
More cordless shop vacuums, sorted by the latest model first:
Milwaukee M18 Cordless battery-powered shop vac
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
