by mzimmers Great vac for what I need!
Switching to area rugs and hardwood from wall-to-wall carpeting means less vacuuming. Yay! But a light weight vacuum--which to choose? I went with the Dirt Devil Cyclonic Pet Bagless (another yay!) Cleaner and I'm very happy. It stores easily, cleans the areas I need, tackles pet hair well, and has great suction. And the Dirt Devil brand to boot. It's a definite win-win.

This vacuum is absolutely amazing! I have two Main Coon cats and it gets every bit of fur off the carpet, every piece of furniture and even their cat tree. Which I have had for 3 years and only ever cleaned maybe two times since I've had the tree. I only wish is the collection cup was a little bit bigger. I have to empty it out a lot but for the job this vacuum does I really should not complain. Kudos on a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by girl920 Works great - for a few months
I bought this vacuum a few months ago when we bought our first house. It was an older home with carpeting in bedrooms. The carpet had supposedly been cleaned and looked pretty good, but the amount of dust and pet hair that I got up with this amazed me! Every time I vacuumed (weekly) I was shocked at how much I filled this from one room. Compared to other vacuums I've had, this was good.
However, I've only had this about 6 months, and it has completely lost suction in the bottom. I can use the hose/ext for some reason just fine, but when you plug it back into the base, it won't pick up by running the unit over the floor. It makes no sense to me, b/c the tube is right there and there's no clog?
It looks like it will cost me almost as much as a new one to have it fixed. I'm having issues with Dirt Devil's website trying to figure out how to contact them and see if it's covered under the warranty still. Not happy with it and not happy with their lack of troubleshooting on their website. I'll keep trying and see how their customer service does, if they respond.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steph Do NOT buy this vacuum!
I don't even know where to begin. This was the worst money I have ever spent. I purchased this vacuum 6 months ago. The description says it works on hard surfaces... It doesn't! Even on the bare floor setting it just blows dust around instead of picking it up. The hose connects to the base and never stays in place. It pops out and I would say I have to put it back into position every 30 seconds or so. Very annoying. The handle release pedal broke completely off five months after I purchased the vacuum. I store the vacuum in a closet and I am not hard on it at all so I wouldn't expect it to just fall apart. The "pet" attachment doesn't work! It doesn't pick up ANYTHING! Overall, the vacuum is worthless and falling apart to boot.
My next complaint is the company itself. I reached out to them to see if they could fix the handle release or just send me the part. They refused to do anything without a receipt even though I had the serial number. Terrible customer service to go with their terrible product.
My mom bought a Shark a couple months before I bought this piece of junk and that thing is awesome. I wish I would have listened to her and went with the Shark. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Dirt Devils! If I could have, I wouldn't have given it any stars.

The vacuum and its attachments work wonderfully. I was surprised how much dog hair and dust had settled into the carpet in 4 rooms. And it's also great on the tile in the entryway and bathroom.
My only complaint is the way that the attachments (the hose, the wand, the duster, and the pet hair attachment) were made to adhere to the cleaner. I love the idea that the attachments were made to travel with the vacuum as I go from to room to room. But, they fall off way to easily. It seems they aren't really "attached" to the vacuum, but rather they are simply sitting on their respective perches. They fall off even if with the simple back & forth motion when vacuuming an open area, let alone when vacuuming under a chair or along a wall. The second the vacuum comes into contact with another object, even with just the slightest impact, it causes the duster and hose to come loose from their respective perches. The vacuum cleaner should have been designed with a more secure way to keep the attachments in place.

Bought this to replace another pet vacuum cleaner to keep up with my cat's hair on the furniture as well as traditional vacuuming.
Works exactly as expected. Using the special upholstery tool is a breeze and does a great job of not having to go over the same spot repeatedly to get up the hair. Also does an excellent job as a regular vacuum cleaner including the handle going all the way flat to clean under the bed!.
Very easy to empty the canister - it empties from the bottom and everything comes out instead of the usual having to turn the canister over and have dust fly everywhere. Also has a small "thingy" in the canister that catches larger particles like tiny stones so they do not fly around and damage the machine. cleans to the edges.
Extremely easy to put together! Just need 1 phillips head screwdriver for 3 screws.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SusieQ Poor Excuse for a Pet Hair Vacuum
I got this vacuum as a gift for Christmas and I have to say I am glad I did not spend my own money on it. Of course, I am thoroughly disgusted that a family member did and it is a piece of garbage. It picks up the pet hair but the design keeps the pet hair from going into the canister so you can empty it. Poor design. It clogs after about 5 minutes of use so you have to stop and unclog it with your hand, so be prepared to get dirty. I do much better with a broom and dust pan.
