Milwaukee M12 Vacuum – Compact and Powerful

Milwaukee M12 vacuum kit 0850-20

We just caught wind of the new Milwaukee M12 Vacuum. A compact vacuum that’s designed for job site use—but doubles for a great way to clean your shop or vehicle as well. A high performance motor gives you ample suction for any number of construction materials, like wood chips, joist dust, or even metal shavings. You get up to 29 minutes of run-time on a single charge using the new Milwaukee 4.0 Ah batteries.

The Milwaukee M12 Compact Vacuum seems really perfect for cleaning up particular areas of a shop or job site that are messy or otherwise covered in dust or debris. While you wouldn’t want to engage in vacuuming up large areas with this tool—you could, and Milwaukee even included accessories to get you off the ground and in an upright position when using this tool. The Milwaukee 0850-20 M12 vacuum comes with a utility nozzle, crevice tool, and even an extension wand to let you reach just about anywhere or do just about anything. Milwaukee gives this vacuum the same 5-year warranty protection as its power tools. In our opinion, this makes this as close to a no-brainer purchase as you’re going to get.
