Porter Cable 20 Volt 2-Gallon Vacuum PCC795B Review

Porter Cable recently introduced the Porter Cable 20V Max Wet-Dry Vac (PCC795B) adds into a growing line of 20V MAX tools.

Today, tool manufacturers are introducing new cordless tools into their product lines for tools we would normally use a corded tool.  Once we saw Porter Cables introduction of the Wet-Dry Vac (PCC795B) we were thrilled and immediately new we had to get one.  Having a tool like the PCC795B makes clean-up so much easier, and quicker on handyman and punch list jobs.  Think about how much time you save with a small cordless vacuum like this.  It is more versatile and lighter, which makes it easier to go in clean up and not have to drag around a corded vacuum.  Huge time saver!

Porter Cable 20V Max Wet-Dry Vac Features

This new vacuum, PCC795B, is an extension of the PORTER-CABLE 20V MAX* System.  If you are not familiar with Porter Cable they have a range of widely-used and affordably priced cordless tools created for professionals working in residential construction.

The 20V MAX* Lithium-Ion 2 Gallon Wet-Dry Vacuum is the first cordless wet-dry vacuum from PORTER-CABLE and operates on any PORTER-CABLE 20V MAX* Lithium-Ion battery. The 20V MAX* battery is a slide pack design that is super easy to install and replace batteries.

  • Cordless operation powered by 20v MAX battery
  • 7’-8” hose with wraparound storage solution
  • On-board accessory storage
  • 2-Gallon tank capacity


  • System: 20V MAX*
  • Tank Size: 2.0 gal
  • Max CFM: 34.0 CFM
  • Hose Length: 7.67 feet

Great Addition

Having used the Porter Cable 20V Max Wet-Dry Vac for a few months now and for both wet and dry applications.  This little vacuum is impressive. The 2 gallon capacity keeps it light, small and easy transport around the house or to and from the truck. This is definitely a tool for the any trade working in a finish space.  This unit has lots of power and easily sucked up sawdust, water and debris.

  • The hose and attachments store on the unit very well.
  • The filter is easy to change and effective.
  • The 1-1/4″ diameter hose is durable and didn’t clog easily with debris and sawdust

In conclusion, I really like the Porter Cable 20V Max Wet-Dry Vac. It has plenty of power and offers us a really great lightweight/portable solution for dealing with dust and cleanups. If you do small jobs, punch list work, plumbing repairs, etc, then this is an excellent option that will certainly lighten the load and speed up your cleanup. Priced at 79.99 as a bare tool I think it’s a great value.
