Dewalt DCV584L Review

A new Dewalt power tool has come up, and it is the Dewalt DCV584L 18V flexvolt ac/dc wet/dry vacuum cleaner.  This is a versatile unit that can be used for a wide range of functions from unclogging sinks to cleaning your carpet. Sometimes you need to deal with more than bread crumbs and dust, and this is where the unit comes in handy. It will drain your liquid spills and collect them in a different chamber in place of a vacuum bag. It can also be used it as a snow machine or to suck out water in case of a disaster.

Cordless convenience has you operating outdoors without having to be attached to the socket, and it is what this device offers. It has a 20V Lithium-ion rechargeable battery, compatible with 14.4v and 18v XR as well as the new flexvolt battery packs for maximum versatility. It normally runs at 18V max. to give you extended runtime. Despite having a battery, it can also be operated via the mains, leaving you to choose between corded and cordless application. At a recorded 81dB, the DCV584L is one of the quietest vacuums you will find.

Its extreme robustness has it collecting up to 99.97% of dust as fine as 0.3 microns through its washable and replaceable HEPA filter. The wet/dry modes can be used interchangeably without using filters, which only adds to its efficiency. You can attach Airlock compatible tools to the dust extractor, thanks to the Dewalt Airlock adapter. Additionally, your extra nozzles and accessories are only an on board tool storage system away. This means that you have nothing to worry about even when working outdoors or away from home. The durable and large storage capacity assures more work and less downtime. The unit can as well be used as a blower and an ergonomic carrying handle at the top provides for easier transportation. You only buy the body, which means you will dig deeper into your pocket and purchase batteries.
