PORTER-CABLE 20V Cordless 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum Review | PCC795B

Small Quiet Vac

While it can be a lot of fun creating a mess, cleaning it up, more specifically vacuuming, sucks.  It is hard to think of many jobs that can be more mind numbing than vacuuming.  Adding to the frustration is the cord while moving around a wet / dry vac.  Many times we have a small mess in our shop and we drag out the big wet / dry vacs to clean up the mess when a much smaller and easy to use vac could take its place.

PORTER-CABLE’s new cordless 20V 2 Gallon Wet Dry Vacuum (Model PCC795B) is a well designed, powerful and quiet wet / dry vacuum that is priced right. PORTER-CABLE is owned by Stanley Black & Decker, which owns BLACK+DECKER and DEWALT among other brands.  This PORTER-CABLE wet dry vac shares some features with DEWALT’s  DCV580 cordless 20V vac.  Some of the same specs include the same 2 gallon capacity, similar overall body size, all the attachments including the hose storage, and also has a blower port for use as a blower.  The PORTER-CABLE includes a better hose and more suction.

PCC795B Features

  • Powerful suction for quick cleanups
  • Portable 2-gallon tank with wet/dry versatility
  • 7ft. 8in. (1-1/4″) hose with a wraparound storage solution
  • Onboard accessory storage for convenience
  • Tank Size: 2.0 gal
  • Max CFM: 34.0 CFM

The PCC795B Includes

  • 2 Gallon Vacuum
  • Wide Nozzle Tool
  • Crevice Tool
  • 7ft. 8in. (1-1/4in) hose
  • Replaceable and Washable Cartridge Filter



The ability to have a powerful and portable vacuum has allowed us to clean up areas that were harder to access with a normal corded vacuum.  The runtime is not a concern for us at this point as the 4.0 Ah batteries provide around 24 minutes of runtime.  While this is considered a 2 gallon wet / dry vac, the actual capacity for liquids will be about 1-3/4 gallons.  As with all vacuums, manufacturers are allowed to count the full container that holds the fluid without the filter and motor, so the float will turn off the vacuum before you reach full capacity.  For your home, shop, business or car, we believe this vacuum will shine and be used because of the portable ability and a great hose.  We are very happy to see a truly corded power vacuum come out in a battery powered line!
