Summary: I was in the market for a portable pet vacuum, to pick up pet hairs on carpeting, sofas and pet accessories (pet beds, scratching posts). This Dirt Devil was highly rated by purchasers, and the name recognition carried weight too, so I purchased it thru Amazon. What a mistake.
Summary: Gets the job done well! Carpeted stairs have been my nemesis for quite some time. Having two dogs shedding like it's their job to re-carpet our house makes keeping the stairs clean a bit of a challenge.
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.
Summary: I researched handheld vacuums with a roller brush for a couple hours when finally deciding to purchase the Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets model. The deciding factor for me was that it boasted a 7 amp motor, which was bigger than the others I was comparing it to.
Summary: My wife and I have two dogs and three cats. She bought this so we could keep tidy a small carpeted area where pet hair and cat litter sometimes accumulate. We found this vacuum to be ENTIRELY INADEQUATE.
Summary: I know my review will sound like a broken record, but I had to give my 2 cents like a lot of others have about this great vac with an unbelievably tiny dirt cup. First let me say it works GREAT.
Summary: I think this would make a really good little vac for "small" jobs. I got it to do my stairs easier and that seems to push its limits a little. The cup is pretty small and it makes a lot of noise, but it scrubbed the awful carpet treads I have very well. Empty the cup frequently to keep up suction.
Summary: Very powerful little machine! Great for pet hair on the sofa. Only issue is the attachments. You don't get as much suction via the attachments. I wish I had a LARGE version of this for the rest of the house!
Summary: My Golden Retriever is a fur coat with legs that sheds profusely if not brushed frequently. Of course he is so cute we can't resist letting him up on the bed and couches. This vacuum pulls up all the fur with hardly any effort on the first pass!
Summary: I purchased this vacuum several months ago. At first, I was pleased with it because it did a good job picking up the dog hair off my stairs. But that's about the only good thing I can say about it.
