The unusual appearance is the element that draws most of the attention. Practically, this handheld cleaner is different from those with sharp tips for hardly accessible areas. Instead, it has a wide opening, so it covers a wider area while cleaning. It comes in a few different models. Some of them come with crevice tools too, as well as dusting or sliding brushes. For this model, they must be purchased separately. Despite the wide suction opening, it can still access corners and tight areas.
Dirt Devil’s vacuum operates with a speedy brush roll. The rolling movement raises dust and dirt into the air, making small particles easier to get. Cleaning stairs or cars has never been easier. Once again, each version comes with a specific suction power. The model has a transparent cup that catches dirt and dust. Emptying it is piece of cake and does not imply making any efforts. Furthermore, the transparent profile makes it easy to spot things that you do not want thrown away, such as earrings or other small things. The internal filter is very simple to clean too. It can be rinsed, without having to use any detergents. Let it dry and put it back in. It is an excellent feature to keep dust from being blown through the back.
The power cord is built in and has a small storage room within the vacuum cleaner. It measures 20 feet, so you do not really need a power outlet or an extender nearby. It is long enough to go outdoors and handle your car seats and carpets as well. Although the cleaner looks bulky for a handheld device, it weighs less than 3 pounds.
