DEWALT DCV581H 18/20-Volt MAX Cordless/Corded Wet-Dry Vacuum Review

I have to admit that I’m somewhat of a DeWALT products fan. I don’t know exactly why, probably the nice built tools and that they always feel better quality than competition products.


This vacuum is a very nice DeWalt product I have to confess. I was very surprised when I realized that you can plug this thing in the AC outlet and that you can use your drill battery to power it! This cordless option makes it incredibly convenient to use anywhere. Even where you don’t have electricity available. You just plug your battery pack in it and bam!

It sounds more powerful when you use the corded option, but I have to admit that even the cordless way will do the job too! It’s surprisingly powerful for a battery powered vacuum! I even used it to suck up water with my battery pack and it worked just as expected, maybe even a little more than this!


I’ve been hard on this thing and it’s construction toughness is up to the name, DeWALT.

I’ve used it a lot around the house and it did everything I asked it to do. Even my wife likes to use it. When you look at it, it looks somewhat heavy weight, but it’s not at all and still feels good quality. My wife never complained about it!

I had some carpet to clean and washed it before sucking the dirty water out with the DeWALT DCV581H and it worked like a charm. You know what? I would buy another one of these if it ever blow off.

Don’t buy before you read this

If you are planning about buying this vacuum, you really should take a look at the price on Amazon website. Just so you know what a good price is before you go out to your local hardware store for a small wet/dry vacuum. What I like about Amazon is that usually you can get free shipping. Don’t pay more for faster shipping, it’s kind of a gimmick, you’ll get it fast even with the free shipping option. I always love to receive my tools from shipping company, they deliver to my door and it always feels like I’m receiving a gift!
