Parts and Accessories 

Front utility nozzle and extendable rubber hose 



The bulky vacuum, both in character and appearance, is primarily designed for commercial or industrial use. You can also use it in your home, but that would be a severe overkill. 20V Max battery packs are all consumed by this vacuum for a relatively longer runtime, saving crucial time and money. 

DeWalt DCV517B is also an incredible hygienic option. The vacuum delivers one of the best hygienic vacuuming experiences in the vacuuming world, even though it is not a primary household vacuum. With its HEPA wet/dry filter, the DeWalt DCV517B captures 99.97% of dust, debris, and other contaminants measuring at 0.3 microns. 

The vacuum comes with a utility nozzle and extendable rubber hose. Both allow for great versatility to be achieved by the burly vacuum. Its dual-cleanup mode enables the vacuum to pick deeply embedded debris in carpets and hardwood flooring as well. 

DeWalt never compromises on their vacuums’ convenience, hence this vacuum consists of a portable design, which makes the vacuum profoundly easy to carry as compared to other designs. 

Sticking to convenience, the vacuum’s dust tank can be easily emptied by using its heavy duty tank latch. Also, you will never miss the large on/off switch as it can be easily reached with one hand, even while you are wearing gloves. 

Sticking to its professional, heavy-duty identity, the DeWalt DCV517B boasts a dust cup capacity of 1/2 gallons. 

The effective and capable rubber hose enhances the vacuum’s durability as the rubber’s material is hard and strong. Secondly, the rubber hose also allows for substantial flexibility to be achieved. Both of these benefits of the rubber hose seriously raise the vacuum’s handling, allowing it to be easily maneuvered across tight and difficult areas. 

The vacuum’s general applications include: 

  • Professional jobsite cleaning
  • Masonry vacuuming sessions 
  • Water cleanup

Technical Details


DeWalt DCV517B Vacuum Review: 

The DeWalt DCV517B has been around for a while now, but it has not gone away. The featherweight 4.50 pounds portable vacuum is well-equipped to be a jobsite vacuum as it passes all the ‘heavy-duty’ indicators. 

The MVP feature of this vacuum is its portable design, which can be easily carried and handled, anywhere. The credit for the vacuum’s mobility goes to an extremely lightweight design. 

Despite the vacuum being a mini and portable edition in the DeWalt jobsite vacuum lineup, it still keeps up with the rest. Surprisingly, this effortless vacuum provides an epic hygienic experience with its wet/dry HEPA filter; the HEPA filter captures around 99.97% of dust and allergens that measure up to 0.3 microns. 

The DeWalt lineup is specifically regarded for its superb suction power, and this vacuum is no exception to this as its dual clean-up modes deliver different power outputs depending on the situation. Most other cordless handheld vacuums in this domain are nowhere near to operating a 20V battery pack, hence the vacuum’s sheer capability enables it to stand out from the rest of the crowd. 

The DeWalt DCV517B, no matter how many people say otherwise, is an immensely practical vacuum because of its numerous other features that enhance user-friendliness to the highest degree. 

Firstly, the heavy-duty tank latch can be easily used for disposing of the garbage as it is very hard to miss. 

Considering harsh jobsite environments, DeWalt focuses on making this portable and light vacuum as rigid as possible. For instance, otherwise sensitive parts such as the on/off button are reinforced with high-quality material and large sizes to increase their robustness. The on/off button has one-hand access enabled. 

The efficient rubber hose is the elephant in the room. The superior rubber quality allows the hose to be greatly flexible, allowing the user with plenty of freedom in its motions and placements. Since the hose is made from flexible, rubber it will never break, twist, or bend. The rubberized hose crucially bolsters the vacuum’s handling as users are known to feel far more confident with maneuvering the vacuum with the rubber on. 

Besides the product itself, DeWalt is known for its after-sale services and providing the epitome of convenience to the customer through liberal policies and great understanding. After you buy this vacuum, you can avail: 

  • A 3-year limited warranty, which can be claimed anytime, anywhere 
  • 1-year of free service at any DeWalt outlet store or recognized retailer 
  • If you are not fully satisfied with the vacuum in 90 days, you can return and get fully repaid with no questions asked. 

This 4.5 pounds, lightweight, and portable vacuum can carry a total tank storage of half a gallon; this is brilliant engineering. With such great ratings, when it comes to tank capacity, performance, and convenience, the DeWalt DCV517B is surely worth the hype. 

The vacuum’s most supreme feature is its affordability. At this price, the DeWalt DCV517B is a downright bargain. If you are on a budget, and looking for a competent vacuum that will get the job done, this is the last cordless handheld vacuum that you will ever buy. 


  • How often do you change the filter on this vacuum? 

The vacuum is known for providing its customers with impressive cost-effectiveness. Hence, the filters on the vacuum are rinseable and reusable. So, until your filter does not truly die off, you can easily take it out and rinse it with clean water or high-pressure wind. 

  • Is the vacuum able to clean all surface types? 

Thanks to its quick performance, the vacuum can clean drywall dust as well as wet flooring. However, you will have to clean the filter after you vacuum drywall dust. 

  • Does the vacuum come with anything? 

Yes, despite popular belief, this DeWalt model comes with two parts only: front utility nozzle and extendable rubber hose.
