This is the worst vacuum I have ever owned. I have bought cheaper vacuums that have worked much better. It doesn't pick up everything and if you even attempt to go to a hard surface it will shoot out dirt from the vacuum. I bought the vacuum so I could use the hose and nozzle to clean my couch. Does not work. If you remove the nozzle from the vacuum, dirt will shoot out of the hole where the nozzle is stored. The vacuum puts more dirt in my house then it cleans up. Do not buy this and waste your money, you will be very disappointed like I was. There are better vacuums for the same price if not less.
I have been very pleased with this vacuum cleaner. It has picked up things in my carpets that I didn't even know were there. It is very easy to put together and the dirt tray is easy to remove. I hope it lasts me a long time.
have had this product for 1 yr have had to replace belt twice. took me approx 1/2 to 1 hr to do this. you have to take out all screws on bottom. my old hoover had twist handles to remove bottom. and have pinced hands and fingers several times while in the process of replacing this. seems belts are not long enough. but product does work well when belt is newly replaced. have not had problems when removing hose and picking up dirt.
would not recommend this product on basis of replaceing belt so often and also this is so hard to do.
I have never had a vacuum that is as bad as this one, I owned a much cheaper model before this one by Dirt Devil and it actually worked good. I returned this item once before thinking it was just a bad one, then I got the same thing (another bad one) when I got a new one as a replacement.This item is terrible!!
I give it 10 thumbs down
i just bought this vacuum because my bissell which i had for 5 years and really liked is starting to ware out. i used this dirt devil vacuum to sweep my living room and all of the upstairs of my home. the suction is very great! NOT any dirt left behind! The hose is also very great. there are many tools for the hose 2 that work wonderful too, which makes cleaning stairs and hard to reach places very easy. this vacuum is built very strong. I jus love this vacuum. it is one of the best vacuums i have ever had. i would reaccommend this vacuum to everyone! It's very affordable and does a wonderful job.
My Parents needed a new vacuum. They were using mine until they found a new one and were happy with the performance of mine. I could not find my model in any stores but did find it online. I noted the bad reviews online but was satisfied with this vacuum and ordered it for them. I has 3 cats and my parent have 1 dog and 2 cats and both house holds are satisfied with the performance
of this vacuum. I agree it is heavy to carry to the second floor but it has great suction and I would buy this vacuum again.
We have had this vacuum for over a year now and it was not till we just purchased our new Bissell that I have decided to write a review. I have had good experiences with Dirt Devils in the past. This one just has a poor design. The filter is in an inconvenient place and must be cleaned before every use. The first time we vacuumed with new one it was full of dust after the first two minutes, even though we vacuumed every night with the Dirt Devil. Do your self a favor and read the reviews before you purchase.
I don't know what the others are saying about the dirt blowing back but it has not happened to me. I love this vacuum. I bought it to replace a cheap hunk of junk bissell. This has picked up so much more than the cheapo vacuum ever has. I love the attachments too.
First I was concerned about all the bad reviews about this product. I then saw it on sale at my local discount store for only $59. I thought to myself, if it doesn't work I can always return it. I brought it home and quickly put it together. It only has one screw to complete the entire process. I started to vacuum my two 8X10 rugs. The machine picked up a lot of dust and debris that I noticed was in the dirt container. I had just vacuumed 2 days before! I see how the machine looses suction. You MUST clean the filters and SCREENS when your done vacuuming. Not only does it have a foam filter that must be cleaned, it also has screens inside the dirt container that MUST be tapped or cleaned with your hands in order to make air flow through the screens and maintain suction. I am satisfied with the machine, especially for the price. It cleans very well!
I purchased this product two years ago, and I am satisfied with it's operation, I have not had any problems with it, and it's suction is better than any vaccum that I have used or purchased so far! I believe the key to keeping your vaccuum working right, you need to do common sense maintenance, keeping it clean, and free of any debri, or build-up of any kind, and don't forget to change the filter every so often, 2 to four times a year! Great product!
Just purchased this vacuum today after our Bissell died (10 years old, will be missed:-). Didn't want to spend a lot of money, and this machine definitely fits the bill. On first room vacuumed, seemed to have only fair suction. Decided to re-vacuum room (after emptying filter) and went slowly. OH MY, did this vacuum bring up dirt! It almost made me ill to see how much dirt was in the carpet. Decided to do a THIRD pass, and got another 3/4 inch of dirt/dust in the cup! Also used the hose attachement; excellent suction right away, but definitely decreases as the cup fills with dirt/dust. Others have written about machine being heavier which I agree with. I think dirt cup is super easy to empty, and it has a washable filter which I like. I would definitely recommend this vacuum so far, hopefully it will last a while!
It SUCKS!! And I mean that in a good way. I love the Dirt Devil's, but the last couple have not lasted long. And I have cats. Once assembled I used this over a small area (medium sized room) - it got an amazing amount of 'stuff' in the chamber. I hate feeling 'stuff' under foot that is not carpet, so was really amazed by the huge amount of yuck in the chamber...my feet are happy, now on to the rest of the house.
Excellent so far - only 1 week.
Wish I would have reviewed this one online before I bought it. It works great on carpet, picks up stuff my old vacuum never did. The design is poor, however. When you remove the hose to use the attachments as soon as you turn it on, dust and debris blows out of the hole where the attachments plugs in when not in use. No way to cover it, I stuff a rag there until I'm done. It also comes loose sometimes during carpet vacuuming, trash is flying everywhere. To be bagless, I'm dealing with more dust than when I had a bagged vacuum.
I got the previous model of the ultravision. It worked great for about 2 months. However, the cleaner was no match for the dirt & hair of my 2 Rottweillers. It began to lose suction just 2 months. The filters had to be clean after each room. I had to clean the room twice due to the cleaning of the filters. After 1 yr, the spin brush was jam and stopped spinning. Time to switch back to hoover.
I bought this vacuum in green, and i got it home took it out of the box it was fairly easy to put together and i used it a couple times and it started to leave everything behind on the floor i could go over and over and over the same spot many many times and still didnt pickup much, and then it started leaving piles of the dirt on the floor when you turn it off, it the worst vacuum ive ever used. i will never buy another dirt devil i guess the name says it all, its a devil to get up the dirt..lol do not buy this vacuum you will be very disappointed. and yes its true you get what you pay for.
I have had my vacuum for a few months now. From the very beginning the suction was horrible. We have to vacuum over the same spot over and over to get the carpet to look somewhat clean. It shoots the dirt out the back of the vacuum and if you use the attachment it blows dirt out of the hole. It is the worst vacuum I have ever owned. I am getting ready to buy a new one, and I will NEVER buy a Dirt Devil again!
My Hoover WindTunnel died after 9 years so my husband purchased this for me. I was a little leary since I have never had good luck with Dirt Devil's but I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I returned it after a month of frustration. The suction was horrible and the attachments and hoses didn't fit well together which made the suction even worse. It was also annoying because I wasn't able to get under the edge of cabinets/etc like I was able to with my other one. The final straw was the vacuum wouldn't pick up a lot of stuff, it would just move it around. I returned this and was delighted to find a newer version of my trusty Hoover WindTunnel at a great price.
It takes more time cleaning the vacuum than it does to vacuum.
You have to empty the canister, then there are 2 filters under the canister that have to be cleaned after each use. Then you have to remove a spindle that keeps back the larger dirt items. After you get that spindle thing out you need an extra 10 minutes to get it back in right. Vacuum it also noisy. Also have had it only 8 months and changed the belt 2 times.
I bought this vacuum 8 months ago, since then i have replaced the belt twice. This vacuum gets clogged between the bucket and bottom of vacuum constantly. Even before I got pets it would clog just off of dust! Every time you turn the vacuum on it blows a cloud of dust into the air. I have resorted to wearing a mask when vacuuming until i can purchase a new vacuum. This product has been nothing but a headache and causes more of a mess than it cleans.
Too heavy, not comfortable, wrong opening of the tray,low sucking power...
