Hand Vac
I work for one of the top home builders and find myself using this product all of the time. This is awesome to have, very light weight and durable. I use it to pick up old caulking, saw dust, grout, glass, wood chips and much more. I have attached industrial strength velcrow to the side of the nose and the narrow attachment to secure the attachment to the hand vac. This has worked great and I never loose my attachments.

19.2 V hand vac
The vac works fine, however I am unable to find replacement filters for it. Washing out the original can only last so long.

Works pretty well

I do closet organizers and lock sets for living and this works good for cleaning up my mess...daily. Nice addition to my C3 system tools.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Handy little hand vac

I already had a set of C3 tools and batteries when my wife wanted a new Hand Vac. We liked the cordless style, so I looked into this one. We picked it up and it worked great with the old nicad batteries. Lasted quite a while on a full charge. Recently we upgraded to XCP batteries, the lower cap ones, and it runs quite a bit longer, and vaccuums significantly stronger than it ever did. It's easy to clean out, and we've had it about 3 years I believe, and still haven't had to replace the filter, we just knock it out over the garbage can, and it still vaccuums like before.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Little to no suction

I first tried this out on the floor mats of my car. It just didn't have enough suction to pick up even the loosest dirt. I tried using the crevice tool, which was only a marginal improvement. It didn't work any better on the hardwood floors in my house, either. Given a choice, I would return this item, it certainly isn't worth the $100+ that I paid for it. You'd be better off just using your regular household vacuum cleaner.

Don't get unless you want to buy battery & charger

I did not realize that this product only was the vacuum, therefore to use it you have to buy both a battery & a charger to use. Gets very expensive.

Superb Household Cleaning Aid

The Hand Vac is light but extremely effective in picking up hair, feathers and other light objects. If you have birds, as I do, this vac is invaluable for picking up feathers during molting season.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just what I needed

I have a dust buster that works just like this Craftsman except that the batteries are never charged enough. I already have a drill with 2 batteries that are always charged, so I can just pop in one of them and the vac is ready to go.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does what it is designed for.

Very good for small amounts of dust and debris, which is what it is intended for. Of course, not a complete substitute for a shop vac. The brush attachment tends to come off easily, it is just a friction fit. If I were going to use that attachment for an extended period I would tape it to the vac with electrical tape. The crevice tool is excellent for tight spots.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good tools - bad batteries

Have a good number of the 19.2 volt tools. The tools are great and a good value but the batteries (all types) are inferior. I probably have 8 bad ones with only two leave that are good. Even one of the litium ones when bad after a short period. The batteries go bad whether you use them or not.

Best thing for small messes

We have two now. We were unable to buy a new filter for the existing vacuum which really worked well. So I was forced to buy another. It would be great if you could make filters available. The original is about 5 years old. So I would say they work good for a long time, but the shell is still perfect. What should I do with it?

I would recommend this product to a friend.

this item has good suction for what it is. very convenient for a car or recreational vehicle or small messes around the house. however if you use a heavy battery it is quite off balance so i recommend the lithium ion compact ones.

Performs as expected

Grabbed this mostly because I have tons of batteries that I need to keep in use between major projects. Needed a small vac anyway, this one was on sale and I need something for small garage messes. Drill a hole, cut a board, file something--clean it right up with this vac and keep the bench neat. Suction is adequate. Most little rechargeable hand vacs are only 12v, so 19.2v is a step up.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

capable but weak performer

I PAID $21.00 FOR THIS TOOL TRYING TO CAPITOLIZE ON MY C-3 TOOLING INVESTMENT. I FOUND THIS VACUMNS PERFORMACE TO BE WEAK IN MANY ASPECTS. I WAS ALSO DISAPPOINTED THAT THE ATTACHMENTS EASILY FALL OFF WHILE IN USE AND THAT THERE IS NO PROVISION MADE TO STORE THEM ON OR WITHIN THE UNIT. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TOOL.
