Not thrilled
I love all the M-12 tools except this one. Makes a lot of noise, and blows out a lot of warm air, but for some reason it's just weak. My wife's DustBuster has more vacuum than this thing

Awesome Product
I am a property manager for national fast food restaurant. After small repairs clean up is an important part of the process. It is not always convent to pull out bulky vacuum due to public safety. The cordless vacuum makes this process quick and efficient.

I love all of my other Milwaukee tools, but I'm afraid the vacuum simply doesn't live up to the tradition. The impeller doesn't generate enough suction and the flap the prevents debris from falling out is too close to the filter, creating a point at which material gathers and further clogs the intake. The best that I can say is the it is well made to a somewhat mediocre design. It is better than nothing, unlike my other Milwaukee products, which are better than anything.

Awesome Addition!
I'm such a fan of the Milwaukee 12V system, I am always checking for additions to the line. This was an unexpected, but very welcome addition to this vast offering. Based on experience with the many other Milwaukee tools I own, I didn't hesitate to order. Once it arrived, I slammed in a battery, a started vacuuming around the baseboards of my kitchen....and then thru the rest if the house! Silly, but true. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Another excellent M12 tool
Have 2 cats 4 kids and a lot of hardwood floors. I keep 1 by the litter box and another by the kitchen. I am a contractor so buying another Milwaukee tool to go with my collection was a no brainer

Works Great!
This vacuum works very well. It's easy to empty. This replaced a Dewalt 18V cordless vacuum, and replaced it very well. Although it will NOT replace a 'plug-in' shop vac, it still does a great job on the smaller stuff!

Describe Yourself:
Very handy to clean up small messes
We use this vacuum on all our service trucks. It is not intended to clean a whole jobsite or house, but for quick easy clean up when sawing, drilling, or getting in tight areas where dust and debris fall, it is a great product.

Would this be a good vacuum for vacuuming a car or SUV? I have a great shop vac but sometimes I don't want to pull it out on the driveway and get power. I am looking for a vacuum to use in my RAV4EV.
