It got all the dog/cat hair on the carpet and the rugs and more (dirt accumulated since the old vacuum could get it)
I really, really did not like this vacuum. It did, however, have 2 pluses, which is why it got 2 stars. It did a great job on carpets, and the attachable power brush worked GREAT on the steps, which is a first. However, that's where it ends. It is very heavy (my fault- I should have checked the weight). On my bare floors, it picked up the dirt and proceeded to shoot it out behind it. The hose constantly fell off of it's holder. The hose also continuously popped out of it's slot. I ended up returning this and buying a Shark Navigator Deluxe. So far so good.
I bought this vacuum brand new used it twice and now it's stopped sucking through the bottom of the vacuum to where you can only use the hand attachment. I emptied the cup before it even got to the dirt line cup but it's clogged under the bottom portion of the vacuum so you have to take the whole thing apart to try and find the problem. the hoses are not clogged and I've only vacuumed 2 rooms of carpet. It's a piece of trash and now I have to go spend more money to buy something else. I will never buy another dirt devil again. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
This is my second or third of the Dirt Devil 12amp vacs - They last me about 3-4 years-
The performance meets all my needs -3 cats - so much hair, they think it is summer
all year round - I have never had a problem with this vacc - they give you a 3 year warrenty-
What else could you ask for ??Best $100 dollar vacc you can buy !!
I did not want to buy this vacuum as it "looked" cheap, but that's exactly why we ended up with it. It was on sale and in stock. We've had it for about a year now and I love it! It "steers" very smooth, empties easily, filters are very accessible and easy to clean, very user friendly. Pet cleaning tool works very well on hair. It has quite a bit of suction power, no need to go over the same area again and again. Would definitely recommend and our next vac will be a dirt devil too.
Purchased this to replace an ancient Dirt Devil that was being held together by duct tape. I have two dogs and a cat, so the "Pet" aspect appealed to me. Negatives:-doesn't pick up the pet hair no matter what pile setting I try. I think it picks it up, but then clumps get redeposited and spread around! It does pick up some hair, but just not nearly as well as my old vac. Also, the collection cylinder is very small, so I am constantly having to stop and empty. I personally don't like the design where I have to unsnap the cylinder at the bottom to open it (the old one was twice the size and you just unscrewed the top and dumped it). Positives: The product is modestly priced and very lightweight, and the hose feature has incredible suction. It does pick up dirt well and so might give to a friend or family member who doesn't have pets or large areas to vacuum. Delivery from Walmart was excellent.
I bought this vacuum in July because I have 3 St. Bernard's and it was suppose to be good with picking up pet hair. At the beginning, it was great! It did everything it suppose to do with no problems. Then a month went by and the belt broke, for some reason my vacuum starts to smell like something's burning and when I turn it over I find out that my belt is broken time and time again. I'm only vacuuming hair and small pieces of dirt, so I'm not understanding what is going on (my old vacuum did better than this but after 5yrs I wore it out#. Two months later, the vacuum kept getting clogged up. I had to take the whole thing apart to get a little bit of hair. After battling this problem for 2 months. I notice that the suction wasn't as strong as when I first bought this. Now, the thing shuts off in the middle of vacuuming. I've had vacuums for longer this and never have I experienced these many problems. I believe in taking care of your stuff in order to have it last for a long time but it doesn't make a difference with this vacuum. This isn't worth the headache. I have kept this vacuum cleaned in and out #filters and all) I check the holes before using, and it looks brand new but doesn't hold up to it's purpose. I've decided not to be cheap and get a Hoover shoulder pro vac which if you're a clean freak like me..... IT CLEANS!!!!!
I owned a Dirt Devil for 9 years and loved it. Then 2 years ago I decided to try a different brand *being cheap* the first time I used that vac I knew I had made a mistake so this time I decided to go back and I am so glad I did this vac is so powerful that it made my carpet (in the traffic areas) look refreshed as it does when I shampoo. It raised the crushed carpet and made it look new again. I Love It! It is sturdy but not heavy I believe it will last a long time just as the first one.
Excellent !! I thought it was going suck up my carpe! Very light to push around.. I bought this Dirt Devil.. because I have a carpet cleaner from Dirt Devil and it is also excellent also. great product!
I love it!
Did a goodly amount of research on-line, before purchase on line, very pleased with purchase, AND price
I bought this in August and now in November it is no longer picking up pet fur. Going to see about getting it fixed.
this is a very outstanding dirt devil! and it really picks every dog hair up and than some. it's way better than previous vacuum I had from BigLots.... way better!!! the only thing I did not like and Walmart should revise, it should be packaged & delivered in a plain brown or white box like everything is! it was on my door step and could've been stolen, if I lived somewhere questionable!
This is an excellent product! It has great suction and really picks up the pet hair! The first time I used it I was amazed! I could not believe all of the hair and dirt my old vacuum left behind!
Great suction, I wish the cord was longer and I wish I ould get under things more.
i like it very much except for the fact that it does not have an automatic cord rewinder
Not much to say here. A vacume is a vacume. But Dirt devil does seem to get better with every new model.
I am extremely impressed with the power and performance of the Dirt Devil Power Pet Vacuum....light easy to handle and...my carpet looks great.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone with pets..less than $100 it's brings great value.
I have OCD, a two year old and three dogs. We vaccum our 1500 sq foot home at least twice daily. Maybe more. I am very paticular about the vacuum i use. I have had every brand but this is my first Dirt Devil. Hands down this is the best vacuum I have ever used. Very powerful and so far dependable. Make this your next vacuum and thank me later.
I've owned this vacuum since living in my apartment (moved in 2010) and I have had only minimal problems caused by myself. I have replaced the belt, however that was my own fault by sucking up a sock, causing the motor to melt the belt due to friction. Other than the belt, everything has been phenomenal with this vacuum and I do recommend it for medium-to-large apartments.
