I bought this vac a few weeks ago. It did a good job up untill I needed to replace the filter. I went to two different wal-marts to find the filter. Did not find. Went on walmart.com, did not find. Went to dirt devil.com, found it, but it was out of stock.
If you are going to sell a vacuum in your store you should sell the filters that go with it. And make them readily avaliable. Because this vacuum is pretty worthless just setting in my cabinet.
This vac works great. I used the pullout crevice tool to clean my steps and all around the baseboards in my house. I was amazed at how much fur(two cats) and dirt it picked up. It works as well as a normal sized vac. I bought it since my full size vac came without tools. Well worth the price.
I had this dustbuster for three days and it will no longer hold any charge at all! Do not buy this.
I bought this to keep my brand new car looking that way on the inside. I leave it charging by the back door and use it on my entire interior carpet and seats a couple of times a week. The extension is great to get between the seats and the pedals. Suction is great! For the price it is excellent value and I am ordering another one for my dad's car today.
Nice product, and powerful for hand-held device.
Would recommend for light cleaning: I use it for cleaning cat hair off the furniture.
Uses F38 Filters - available starting at $2.75 online via 3rd party Those complaining about filters aren't looking very hard.
I was looking for a nice hand vac that would suck up what I sweep off the floor. Fine if it's dust, but if there's a small rock bigger than 1/4 inch, forget it. You'll have to bend down and pick those pieces up. I've never run the battery out, so it must stay charged well. However, I was disappointed it didn't come with any kind of wall-mount charger like my old hand vac. Finally, the side buttons that open the dust cup are convenient. Now if only the filter would allow the dirt/hair/dust to fall out. You have to reach your finger up in the cup to clean it out. Any hair that gets vacuumed up, stays in there and holds everything in there with it. Totally worthless. I wish I had returned it the first week, but I don't have the receipt/box anymore and I'm too cheap to just throw it away. I hope I accidentally leave it out, so my kids break it and I can buy a new one.
Purchased this to replace an old hand vac that didn't have great suction. This does NOT hold it's charge long at all. I can barely get through one room before I need to plug it back in again. I have followed the manual for charging (which is vague at best) and still cannot get the performance I was hoping to have. Will not buy a cordless hand vac from Dirt Devil again.
I owned this unit about a year now and I bought it because my corded hand vac gave out after 10 yrs. I guess I expected too much from a cordless vac. Don't get me wrong it works good and has good suction as I primarily use it to keep the cat litter picked up around my cats litter box- but the battery doesn't hold a long charge... I can use it 3-4 times and its only for a few minutes and it then has to be charged? Wow, I thought it would go alot longer than that. It's nice not to have a cord in my way but I don't like having to recharge it so often. For those looking for a new filter as many people seem to be looking for one, you have to go to the Dirt Devil web site and buy one for $4.27 but of course as of this date-- they are out of stock. So next I recommend to Google it and see if anyone else sells the filter. My final thoughts are I just wish they would make a better battery!
Is amaizing how powerful is this Hand Vac,I love it.
I had a ***** * ******* brand handheld vac which lasted fairly well and did the job adequately, however, was old enough that it wouldn't hold a charge. Hence, the DD 9.5V GATOR. From what I've used it so far, great little tool. I understand this is only an appliance for very small vacuum jobs and have an upright as well for what this one cannot do. Too many people believe this tiny vac is all they need to clean their homes with, that's not very CONSERVATIVE thinking..... If you have to re-sod a football field, you gonna use sod or plant individual seeds?!?!?! This little machine is perfect for the job it was manufactured to do. Semper Fidelis
I love this little vacuum it comes in very handy in the car for road trips and things like that or around the house.
It's a disposable handheld vacuum. Battery won't hold a charge after 6 months of ownership. It's garbage - don't buy it.

It's TERRIFIC++++++! I bought a 2nd one for our Summer home!
I bought this not even a year ago. It worked great at first then it stopped charging. I moved it to another outlet to see if that help. Red light came on then went off within minutes. Looks like Ill be buying a different brand...DON'T BUY!!

easy/light/handy to have around
The Dirt Devil 9.6V Gator Hand Vac is a great product. It picks up everything, and the extender on it is wonderful for reaching in small places. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to buy it.
this is a great little vac. but as stated in previous reviews stated you can't find a filter for them anywhere. So now its useless sitting the bottom of my storage closet. i used to use it 3 to 4 times a week but now i can't.
piece of garbage. after being on charge for 6 days, it runs down after about 45 seconds.
recharge it and the same result. it has been used about 8 times in 18 months. would
definitely not purchase another dirt devil.
Hi fuzzybell, <br />Your Gator should last longer then that. Please email Ian.McCormick@ttifloorcare.com so we can better assist you. Thanks! --John, Dirt Devil Customer Care
I bought this vacuum last Christmas to use to clean a small bathroom floor, after having the vacuum plugged in to charge for days here is no battery power. Very disappointed.,
