I was looking for a small, powerful and inexpensive vacuum cleaner, and this is EXACTLY what I got with Dirt Devil Dynamite. I was looking to replace my old stick-type vacuum cleaner which was okay for hardwood, but just too weak to pick up anything from carpet.
I already have a fairly large carpet steamer which I regularly use. I didn’t want another clunky machine to take up very expensive square footage in my house. I also paid quite a bit for that steamer, so I didn’t want to shell out for a vacuum as well. However, I did want a vacuum cleaner with some power to it.
1) SMALL: The first thing that caught be by surprise is how remarkably small this vacuum cleaner is. I think the lady in the picture is rather short because the canister part hardly even reaches my kneecaps! Size-wise it almost looks like a child’s toy!
2) ASSEMBLY: There’s virtually no assembly required. Just snap in the handle and it’s good to go.
3) POWERFUL: It picked up incredible amounts of dust, dust bunnies, crumbs and hair on my carpets which were freshly steam-cleaned just days earlier!
4) SIMPLE: There’s one on/off button, a snap button to detach canister to empty it. Sturdy paper filter. It has a stretch hose. To lock it straight up, just lean it forward. Lean backwards to unlock. Handle is retractable if you want to store it, or if you want your kids to exercise their vacuuming muscles!
5) STORAGE: This cleaner just slides under the bed for storage. And I mentioned how important my storage issue is!
6) PRICE: I would expect this performance from a $120 machine, but for $54 this is such a steal.
7) DOWNSIDE: This cleaner is not self-propelled. You have to apply some force to push it forward. Not a deterrent for me, but might be an issue for some customers. If you have mobility problems or more significant physical limitations, you might want to consider a self-propelled vacuum over this one. More expensive cleaners will have rotating wheels which makes the cleaner slide over carpet easily.
Conclusion :This vacuum cleaner is exactly as described by other reviewers . It is small, lightweight, easy to use and very powerful. I was amazed at the amount of dirt it got out of my carpet. My previous cleaner would clean most of the house before it needed to be emptied, the Dirt Devil picks up so much more that it has to be emptied after each room is cleaned.
This is a great buy. Vacuums incredibly well on carpet. Easy to handle, small to store. Literally thinking about buying one for all my family members.
I hope this was useful. Happy cleaning! by justcanistervacuum.com
