The DeWALT DC500 corded/cordless vacuum cleaner is a very handy vacuum to have around the garage.

I have used it personally, and I find it very convenient and simply to use. Where I really find that the DC500 works well is the quick and simple jobs that you need around the garage. Things you would have normally used the broom and dustpan for. This little guy will suck up the dust and dirt quick.

With a suitably long cord; it's not miles long, it's easy to move around and use without having to get an extension cord for every time that you need it.

Just recently, I also purchased a DW421 to handle a small sanding job that I had. Previously, without the DC500 it was a (saw) dusty experience requiring breathing protection and LOTS of sawdust. On a whim, I pulled out my DC500 the next time I had a sanding job, and placed the end of the vacuum hose into the DW421 and found that the hose fit perfectly. I turned on the vacuum, turned on the sander and proceeded with my job, sans sawdust. It worked perfectly! I was VERY pleased with this thoughtful feature.

Changing the dust collection bin is as easy as unclipping two hinge clamps and pulling the dust bin off the bottom and dumping in an appropriate place.

This vacuum also handles wet jobs, and has a drain plug in the collection tub for just such occasions, helping you to drain the wet stuff BEFORE you spill it all over.

Even more features await. You can purchase the DC500, which is just the vacuum - no batteries. Or, we stock the DC500K and DC500K-2 that include a battery and charger, or batteries and charger respectively. With a cordless battery, the DC500 now becomes totally portable and runs completely off the battery attached.

he only negative to this tool is that it's not a charger. However, for the price, the DC500 series is quite a handy little addition to anyone's tool shed.
