Home Depot is launching a new Ryobi 18V cordless vacuum that can attach to most 5 gallon buckets as the collection vessel.

The new Ryobi cordless vacuum, PCL732, is capable of both wet and dry pickup.

Ryobi says that the new vac is the industry’s most powerful bucket top vacuum for wet and dry debris. I presume they’re talking about corded and cordless vacuums, as I don’t think I have ever seen any other cordless bucket-top vacuums.

The vacuum also features a blower port, for added functionality and versatility, and also integrated storage for the included hose and crevice tool.

It comes with a filter brag, to help protect the vacuum from motor from dust and other dry debris.

There are other sizes of buckets that work with 5-gallon lids and accessories; it seems that users might be able to step down or up for more compact or higher capacity setups.

I don’t know how useful the blower function will be, but it seems like it could be convenient.

The specs aren’t impressive, but seem reasonable for a cordless vacuum that sells for $60 (tool-only).

Another home run by Ryobi? Looks like it to me.
