Milwaukee calls its new M18™ Compact Vacuum with removable HEPA filter the most powerful and adaptable handheld cleanup tool in its class. A high-performance motor that helps the vacuum draw 40 cubic feet of air per minute should make it easier to clean up a variety of materials, such as wood and drywall dust, metal shavings and other common household or workshop debris. A flexible 4-ft. hose and four attachments (two extension wands, crevice tool and floor tool) come standard and connect to the vacuum’s 1-1/4-in. inlet. There’s also a trigger lock-on feature.
Weighing 4.3 lbs., the machine’s compact proportions and handheld design will help make it easier to work in confined spaces. A clear view canister that holds 36 ounces empties easily from the bottom for added convenience.
The cordless vacuum will operate for 25 minutes on one M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery, and runtime can be extended to 43 minutes if you use Milwaukee’s new M18™ REDLITHIUM™ HIGH DEMAND™ 9.0 Battery (batteries and charger are sold separately).
Available this month, Milwaukee’s M18 Compact Vacuum (model 0882-20) sells for $99.
