Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: This is a cheap vacuum and you get what you pay for. When you want to use the upholstery brush and detach the hose, there is no shut off switch for the beater bar on the bottom!! SO you are wearing a hole in your carpet as you vacuum a chair. I called and they suggested laying it on its side. Very half a**.
Summary: I have a Dirt Devil Reaction dual cyclone vacuum with a hepa pet filter that I have used solidly for at least 8 years. I needed a new vacuum only because it has become unbearably loud. I have 2 pets and given the amount of hardwood floors and furniture that my pets like to sit on, I use the attachments almost exclusively. I bought this DD Power Reach based on the reviews, and I was specifically looking for strong suction power.
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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!
