M12 Fuel M12 FUEL 1.6 Gallon Wet / Dry Vacuum 0960-21

The M12 Fuel model is by far my favorite of the bunch. It’s no surprise I love the smaller 12V tools and this vacuum takes everything, literally everything that makes the M18 2 gallon wet dry vac great and adds a brushless motor suited for the M12 system and shrinks it down a tad. They also say it’s quieter at 87 db which if true is great news as the current M18 2 gallon wet/dry vac is pretty loud. Performance is the same even though on the 12 volt system, no doubt thanks to it’s brushless motor which helps keep the same strong 45 cfm suction as it’s M18 bigger brother. It also includes the blower function and under lid hose and accessory storage. This new model has two speeds and is said to be able to get up to 14 minutes of runtime on high and up to 26 minutes in low with an XC 6.0 ah battery. It will be priced at $129 as a baretool and $199 as a kit.
