Rated 4 out of 5 by hlw2829 Best hand vacuum I have used.
I have used this vacuum for 3 weeks and it works great, the brush roller has lots of power & it picks up everything, including pet hair & it leaves the carpet on my stairs looking like new. However, the suction when using the attachments is very poor, thus, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
I have read reviews about problems cleaning the filter. I have found that if you use a medium tooth brush to help loosen the dirt between the filter slots the filter cleans just fine. But you DO NEED to clean the filter after each use so there is no dirt build-up.
Pros: It is not too heavy, is easy to empty & the cord length is a plus. All in all I would recommed this vacuum, if filter cost is not a issue.
Cons: Filters not sold in stores & need to be ordered on line, so with the shipping costs they are somewhat expensive & this should be considered when decideing to buy the vacuum.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MisterEdReview Great for quick clean up jobs!
This vacuum is very handy for quickly cleaning up small jobs around the house as well as doing carpeted stairs quickly. I even use it to clean out the dog shed of hair and the garage of dirt brought in by the vehicles. The cannister is very easy to empty so even though it can fill quickly you can keep a larger container right near by for these more heavy duty projects. I had an older one for many years, but like the new features on this one.
Rated 4 out of 5 by DanVofOrange Lightweight and Powerful
Sucks up well and needs regular emptying of the filter case (good thing). A little hard to get dust out without taking whole back area off though.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MKI1241 Belt came off after 1st use and could not be fixed. Contacted manufacturer and they would not replace. No longer had my receipt or box so i'm stuck with it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by UniqueReviewer Excellent on stairs and pet hair!
I have 2 large dogs and work from home - the stairs get a pretty good work out throughout the day/week. The dogs are always in tow wondering "what we're going to do next''. We've used a traditional upright vacuum with hose and attachments for the stairs - which is a complete pain. This is the BEST $40 I've spent in awhile! I love that you can empty the contents each time and you truly get to see how well this works after you finish.
I've only had it a couple of months, but even if I had to buy 1 per year, it would be well worth it! Try it out. The other good thing is that WalMart takes it back if you don't like it - even used! I was shocked and impressed with that one. Also, do site to store for free. Arrives quickly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Veganlo Awesome Hand Vac
This vacuum works great. It has a excellent suction power. True that by the time you install the attachments, it loses suction power but it still does the job. Overall, I'm happy with this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by alice79 Great little vacuum
I have a motor home and a dog. I have used full sized vacuums and they didn't do half the job this lil dirt devil is doing. I am very impressed w/ how it picks up dog hair an is pulling up dirt that is deep in the carpet. It also works well on the upholstery. I remember these lil vacs. as a kid and wish I would of bought 1 sooner. Normally I wouldn't write a review but this product actually works very well and I recommend it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by paulym great powerful vac !!!
I really like it for stairs and closets that have carpet. the cord if very long and the vac is very powerful
Rated 4 out of 5 by DogHairCentral great for a small vacuum
It picks up dog hair well, but you have to go slowly and keep the head flat against the surface you're cleaning. The cord is nice and long for doing stairways. We didn't notice much dust being exhausted into the room when in use. The dirt cup is very small but we're able to clean the entire stairway before cleaning it out. The filter was a mess from the first use, and we're not sure how much that will affect the efficiency of the unit as time goes on. I need to find a small stiff brush with which to clean it. Overall its a nice addition to our cleaning arsenal and we're going to keep it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JDJDpleasechooseadifferen Good, and seems to have enough power
I got this since I have an older (original?) Dirt Devil which is still being used in the camper. This one is for the stairways in the house; and is certainly handy and quick for that task. It gets done 2x per week with the heavy foot traffic. I like the dirt cup/filter better than the old cloth dust bag on the old one. I tried the hose/crevice tool, and it's ok for light cleaning, but would say the shop vac is needed for more serious cleaning. Again, this vac generally has enough power to get er done. "Like" it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sigmund2 I LOVE this vaccum!
This is the absolute best product out there!!! Wow, I thought my normal sized vaccum worked well ... and then I used this!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by jrdeac Great For Carpted Stairs
I had been looking for a hand vacuum that is belt drive and not air driven for a while now. I used it the same day that it arrived and let me tell you, my stair carpets look brand new with no pet hair on htem.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FurDog Great Hand Vac
I Have used 5 different hand vacs to clean my vehicle from pet hair. I have A Lab Retreiver and the dog sheds constantly. This is the only vac that I know of that picks up the pet hai from my vehicle carpet. With the 7 amp motor and brush roll was the best I could find for the money.
Rated 3 out of 5 by loco65 Has great suction but:
This little vacuum has great suction and does clean up cat hair very well. Was wondering if anyone else had a problem with it squealing while running? If it wasnt for it being new, I would believe the bearings are dry or burning out.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rachelg4118737333 Love it
I use this everyday to vacuum my couch. I use it to vacuum my car as well . It picks up really well. Some times the belt does come off and is a little tricky to figure out but I always end up getting it on. I love it and would buy it again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lctrainer1 Real workhorse!
We own a cleaning business and this is the 2nd vac we bought. Superior machine and very durable. We just wore out our first after daily use for 3 years. Excellent vacuum!
Rated 1 out of 5 by MaddieMae Waste of Money
I bought this a couple of years ago and it sits on the shelf unused because it spits the dirt I am vacuuming up right out the back. Changing or cleaning the filter is nearly impossible and it needs to be done after every use. This vacuum is supposed to be for quick pick-ups, but, instead, I have to pull out the big and heavy regular vacuum. One of the poorest quality items I have ever purchased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Iveroni Better than ever!
I have the older hand held model by Dirt Devil and I just purchased the newest unit. I must admit, I vacuum my stairs on a monthly, if not semi-weekly basis, so I didn't expect to see the end result after one cleaning with my new hand held Dirt Devil. Holy cow! You would have thought those stair had never been cleaned before! The stuff that was deposited into the bagless container was startling! I liked my first Dirt Devil that came with a bag, but this model blows the old one away. It's worth every penny! Get one!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ron52 5 piece set leaks air
I bought this about a year ago. Works great with power head. Attachments are another issue. It leaks air and really doesn't pickup well. I have an older model that works better.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beach45 Great for cat hair on rugs an furniture
Rated 5 out of 5 by BargainHappyShopper Excellent Product
I purchased this hand vac specifically to clean my stairs. I have two dogs and two cats so there is quite a bit of hair left around. The suction on this hand vac is amazing!! The attachments are not all that good and it does lose a lot of suction if you try them, but I did not buy this for the attachments. All said I highly recommend this hand vac.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MsJMO Great!
Bought this as a gift and they've told me they love it. It does a good job and they appreciate the long cord so they can vacuum the staircase carpet.
Rated 5 out of 5 by inventer Very good performance
This dirt devil has excellent suction and dirt pick up. Much better than my previous vac. This one really cleans and is easy to dump the dust, and no bags needed. 20 foot cord helps the reach.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comestai Nice, but with reservations.
Powerful. Does suck up the ingrained dust and dirt. Filter fills up quick and needs to be hit against side of waste basket after every cleaning or two. Haven't used attachments and probably wont. More concerned with basic vacuuming of stairs, furniture, bedding.
Rated 5 out of 5 by blutrank2 Just what i wanted
cleans like a full size vac. with motor driven brush it picks up all dog hair. But i dont understand why the product is not carried in the store.???
