With the compact cordless vacuum class fight heating up, Milwaukee delivers a knockout blow to much of the competition with their $99 HEPA model.

Overall Score 8.6 (out of 10)

The fight in the cordless compact vacuum class is heating up thanks to better motors and higher capacity motors. The Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum (found under model Milwaukee 0882-20) is a bare tool option claiming best in class suction power and offering a solid feature set.

With suction power moving beyond the 30 CFM mark, these small vacuums are able to take a role beyond that of our old Dust Busters. Milwaukee’s 40CFM can legitimately pull most debris from your shop floor and workbench while taking a second job for vehicle cleanup to earn its keep.

The accessory set is what helps make this model so versatile. The Milwaukee M18 Compact Vacuum comes with two wand extensions, a floor tool, crevice tool, and four-foot flexible hose. The removable filter is HEPA rated.

One of the only real complaints we have is that there isn’t a ball connection on the floor tool to make it easy to work around objects in the shop. Aside from that, it’s pretty solid. Be sure to check out the video for the full details!
