Q: What battery should be used with the wet vac?
A: Either an M18 5.0 or M18 9.0 battery is recommended for runtime.
Q: Can you burn up a tool with too big of a battery?
A: No, as long as voltage matches up a bigger battery will just increase runtime (ex. M18 5.0 battery vs. M18 12.0 battery).
Q: Does the battery life hold up on the Threader?
A: Yes, expect 15+ 2” threads on an M18 12.0 battery.

A: 45 minutes for a CP battery and 90 minutes for an XC battery.

Q: Link to see a transfer pump used?
