Summary: Used only twice and belt broke while cleaning out vehicle. New belt has slipped off of brush 8 times so far, and power has not even turned on. Just turning brush by hand causes belt to walk right off of spindle/brush. Brush has no track for belt to ride in, belt just walks right off. A older person with artritis in fingers would not be able to replace belt at all.
Summary: Excellent for dog hair, very portable and powerful. Additional HEPA filters will aid in the efficiency so make sure you get extra. Attachments are a bit cumbersome, but overall a good purchase.
Summary: After years of trying to keep up with Pet Hair in my house, I bought this vacuum. It's amazing! It gets everything on carpets, furniture and floors with very little effort. It also picks up extra dirt that my upright doesn't. I am very pleased with my purchase and recommend this to any pet owner.
Summary: This little Royal Dirt Devil does a big job on cleaning pet hair off my stairs and area rugs. I have a Lab and she sheds like crazy, but this get every hair. Works good on the furniture too! Glad I purchased this.
Summary: First, this thing is specifically marketed as being for homes with pets. Kitty litter is specifically mentioned. However, it has a brush that you can't turn off, making any attempt to pick up kitty litter on a hard floor absolutely disastrous, because the brush sends it flying everywhere. I've only used the thing about 3 times (since it won't work for kitty litter, the purpose for which I purchased it), but the belt has already broken.
Summary: Where has this thing been all my life?? Man this thing works amazing and with little effort! I wish I would have bought this a long time ago. I use it on my couches as I have 3 dogs that shed a lot and I use it on my stars. Now if I could just get my regular vacuum to work that well! Not to mention it shipped here in like a day!
Summary: I use this every three days in my home on specific things: couch, two cat beds, 4 clothe stool tops, and a metal staircase. These are the only things it's good for. I've tried it on many other surfaces and it's worthless. I've had this vac for the last 6 months. The belt has slipped off twice and takes tricky tricks to get it back on. Today the belt broke and apparently finding the size 17 it requires is virtually impossible.
Summary: I have several cats, who are forever shedding and tracking litter all over my carpet. I was looking for a heavy duty mini vacuum that I could keep in my bedroom to clean the carpet on a daily basis. I really did my homework. I spent hours reading all of the reviews on all of the likely candidates on Amazon before finally choosing this one. I have had this mini vac for over two years now.
Summary: I have 2 pet poodles but they are not allowed upstairs to the bedrooms. Nonetheless this vacuum is fabulous for vacuuming the stairs. The cord is super long and stairs can be completed in one shot! So whether you have pets or not, this is a very handy and functional hand vacuum. The only thing that is a bit overwhelming is the loud motor but I do believe most hand vacuums are noisy...
