Milwaukee Wet/Dry Vac is now Cordless!

Unfortunately spills and leaks don’t always happen in close proximity to drains which makes for a messy cleanup, that was until the wet/dry shop vac appeared. Milwaukee now makes a cordless model that is ideal for areas that aren’t powered like workshops and garages.

Harry Sawyers of The Hardware Aisle has issues with the estimated 11-16 minute battery life (depending on model) and we couldn’t agree more. But I guess any bigger mess would require a more industrial type of vac which would need the oomph of 120 volts. I guess think of these as the Dirt Devil of wet/dry vacs which are great for small jobs and convenient to use but sometimes you just gotta break out the real vacuum.
