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.

Excellent

Very strong hand vac. Sucks dirt up very well even larger pieces that just fit in the hole. Got this for the wife for small spills in the house. She won't give it back to me to use in the car or in shop, so will wait until it is on sale and get me one also.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent

I picked this up for much less than retail price due to a sale. The suction is acceptable but not great. I don't like that you have to purchase the filters from the online Sears Parts store and pay shipping. I have not seen the available inside a Sears store. The vac is not worth the retail price but ok if you can find one on sale.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

What a great hand vac!

I love this hand vac. It is very powerful and light weight. This would make a great gift for anyone with furry pets, or messy kids. You can get in those hard to reach corners and I am totally looking forward to using it it my car. You can save money by cleaning it yourself.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Handy vac - battery not included

I used to have a Dustbuster but the NiCad batteries no longer held a charge and replacement batteries cost more than this tool. This is by far a better vacuum. Cordless means it can be used to clean out the car or take it anywhere its needed. I already had an 18 volt C3 Lithium battery from a drill and saw kit. Be aware this vacuum does not include a battery or charger. The balance is very good with the battery installed. It would be better if there were some type of on board storage for the 2 attachments which are a brush and crevice tool. On off switch is located in easy to reach place but won't get accidentally turned on or off. It is easy to open the vacuum to dump the debris. Not sure how long the filter will last or how much a replacement filter costs. I'm sure this will get a lot of use in my house and garage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good portable vacuum for car use

I got this to vacuum my car and the corded one that my wife has isn't too useful as there's no power cord near my car and even with a power cord, the vacuum wasn't that powerful but this one has a bit more suction power and runs on the standard C3 lithium ion battery. Note that it doesn't come with battery or charger.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Convenient if you have other C3 Items

Vac works as expected, since I already have 3 batteries for other C3 products this is a nice addition. Great for small cleanup when i dont want to get my full shopvac out, also really great for cleaning household electronics with brush attachment (got some crumbs out of my keyboard that have been there for who knows how long).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The vac has plenty of power and works well around my shop. The only thing I don't like is the plastic filter. I wish it had a permanent washable one. For that I took off 1 star

Great Vac

This is an excellent addition to my collection of C3 tools. Suction is great and the Lithium batteries last a long time. Several have mentioned its hard to find filters. I did a Sears part search and found this. It took me about 75 seconds: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Craftsman-Parts/Vacuum-Parts/3004015/0009/315/Model-315115710/0247/0643100?keySuffixId=&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=50032452&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=&searchModelNumber=315115710&subCompDesc=Hand%20vac&brandDesc=CRAFTSMAN&modelDesc=DRY%20HAND%20VAC&blt=11&shdMod=&keyId=1

I bought two after wearing out one I bought 6 years ago. I use daily and have several Li batteries that keep charge for at least a month of use. My only complaint was price just went up $10 but had a coupon so was a wash

Very good value

I have quite a few other C3 tools so when I saw this hand vac I immediately thought about buying one. I read most of the reviews before buying so I wasn't surprised by the noise it makes. It does seem to be noisy but it doesn't bother me. I use a lithium ion battery on it so it lasts a long time before needing a recharge. Suction is good for its size and I trashed my old hand-held vac which needs constant recharging on its charging stand.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great lil vac

This Vac is really handy. I started using it after getting it as gift for my son. You can hear that it has a really powerful motor, and it picks up much better than other "dustbuster" style designs.Tried it on furniture, carpet, bare floors, and rugs...works great on all surfaces. My only concern is how often the filter might need replaced in the future.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great hand vac

Living in a motorhome, there are always little nooks and crannies to clean. Especially with a cat traveler. . I have gone through two other small hand vacuums over the past 4 years, they still 'suck' but the built-in batteries just give out, and didn't hold a charge more than a couple minutes. . Since I already had a Craftsman C3 drill, it seemed a natural to use the C3 battery system with a hand vac. My existing battery is a Ni-Cad type, and worked fine with the vac, but I decided to get a 2nd one for backup. The new one is an L-I type battery and works very well too, lighter to hold, and I expect a longer charge life too. . This hand vac really does the job, and I love the power the C3 batteries give. Its not near as powerful as my regular upright vac, nor my little shop vac I drag out from time to time. But for a quick cleanup of cat hair, sand tracked in, some cat food spilled on the floor, or paper shreds in my office carpet, it works very well. . Plus, many days of cleaning go by before a recharge is necessary. But with cat hair in abundance, the unit's debris chamber and filter fill quickly. Luckily they are very easy to clean. . And the filter part number is in the manual, found it on line, I expect I will be able to order when I need a replacement.

The little vacuum that could

Purchased this for around the house use. I have 3 batteries laying around so this vacuum is always ready to go. It's strong for it's size and it is pretty hefty when I use the extended battery.

I love this little vac

I was in the market for a small dust-buster style vacuum and when I came across this unit I was sold. It uses the same battery as all my other C3 tools which improves its utility. Surprisingly, it has quite good suction. Very pleased with this unit for the price.

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.
