    works fine after a year

    0 4/5 R. Wys "R. Wys" (MN, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagged Upright Vacuum, M085590RED (Kitchen) I was suprised to see that some of the other reviews portray this vacuum as useless. I bought mine from Target a year ago and it works wonderfully. Only complaints is that it's still pretty 'clunky' to carry around and that when you want to use the attachments it's hard to get the hose out. I've gone through a Shark brand vacuum that broke after 2 uses and an Orek XL that ate it's own cord but couldn't pick up Cheerios that my daughter spilled. I've had bad luck with vacuums but this one is doing just fine after 200+ uses.Feb. 2013: I just upgraded to a Bissel Trilogy Pet but my Dirt Devil still works wonderfully! Do not buy the canister version of this vacuum though! I've never had to replace the belt on it yet and I did replace the hose two months ago because my husband broke it where it attached to the base but it was a cheap fix. I still say this product is worth purchasing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 19, 2008

    Can suck the chrome off a trailer hitch but breaks

    UPDATE After about 5 Months the part of the hose that connects to the motor ( see my pic) has had a piece break off that locks on the little peg; and now the end of the hose has a vertical crack in it where the attachments would connect. My concern all along after assembling this was the durability factor.I have a rainbow canister that I have decided to retire do the intensive assembly required for its operation. You have to fill the tank with water then place it it's caddy, place the motor on top of tank and then attach the hose from the power head to the motor. Then do the reverse to empty the water from the tank. So I decided to get an upright that you can just plug in and go.I'm not sold yet on the bag less uprights so I decided to go with the old tried and true one's with a bag.

    This thing sucks good!

    I don't think I've ever written a review for a product before, but I feel this baby truly deserves some recognition! I am so amazed at how well this vaccuum does its job! I thought you had to pay a lot of money to get a good vaccuum, you know, one that really works, so I went and bought a Dyson DC-25 Animal to see what it could do. I don't own any pets, but I thought that a vaccuum designed to pick up even all the pet hair in a house would be the best, and I'd heard all the hype about Dyson and how it's supposed to be so great. Then I brought it home, tried it out and thought, "really? this is supposed to be worth slmost $600?" I could not justify all that money for something that seemed to work no better than all the others I'd had before, so I took it back, disappointed. I decided to buy this dirt devil instead for less than a fifth the price based off reviews here, and man am I glad I did!!

    awesomeeeeee

    Let me just say that this vacuum is absolutely amazing! My husband picked it out online sunday night for me and it got delivered today as I was on my way out the door and as soon as I got back home I ripped that baby open. Easy assembly, only two screws for the handle. Plugged her in and fired her up. Now I vacuumed yesterday with the only vacuum I had left (Hoover circa 1965 that had belonged to my grandmother), as I had blown up a $150 Bissell a few months back. The sad thing is, the antique Hoover picks up probably a tad bit more then the 5 year old Bissell. I knew that this new Dirt Devil would be picking up some of what the Hoover had left behind, but I was truly amazed. I filled up the canister with just my living room, which is 12x17. I have two short haired dogs, so I frequently use the Carpet Fresh that helps to release dog hair from carpet. The canister had about 1.5 inches of Carpet Fresh in it, and then there was about a 4 inch pile of dog hair all the way around.

    Former dyson user

    My wife and I have 2 dogs and we never could find a vacuum that worked well and sucked all the hair off the carpet so we went all out and paid around $400 for a Dyson. It's not my favorite way to spend that much money but the sucking power of the Dyson didn't disappoint and it cleaned all of the carpets and got the pet hair off without having to constantly make multiple passes with it. The only problems with the Dyson are it costs a lot and every once in a while there's this horrible gear crunching noise which the instructions say is part of a belt safety mechanism to protect the belt from getting broken. Only problem is it happens every time we use it.So when I had the opportunity to try this vacuum out I jumped. And let me tell you this thing is just as good as the Dyson.Cons: (-1 star)-The cord on this is not as long as the Dyson, I found I had to unplug and re-plug it twice to get my entire living room carpet cleaned. With the Dyson it's a long cord... 4/5 J. Haggard (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews, September 28, 2011

    I got the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber for a gift at christmas and with two dog I thougtht this thing will really be handy. I have Two Border Collies they are Seven and Three so they are past the potty training, but the sopts from when they were potty training are still there.

Rotating Brush is good at scrubbing but gentle Enough not to ruin the rugs.3.powerful suction4. good cord lengthCons1.Dirty water bin takes long to dry word of advice(shake it after rinsing leave near heater with end cap off)Thats it for the consNow I will tell you about my experience with different cleaners.

    no smell has to mean it is getting the job done right

    I purchased this about three weeks ago along with a new puppy. Those of you who know about potty training a puppy can imagine how happy I am to have the spot scrubber. I use it so much I don't even unplug it from the wall. I only have two complaints for the spot scrubber though. First of all, the cleaning solution tank does not hold enough. I can fill it 4 times before the dirty water creeps just under the full line in the dirty water tank. My solution to this problem is to just tote one of those generic household cleaner spray bottles with the cleaning water mixture in it around with the spot scrubber. My second complaint is that the exhaust smells just like whatever you just vaccumed up. So, if you don't clean the dirty water tank EVERY TIME you use it :( , well let's just say it's not aromatherapy.As far as performance, it is very powerful because it is a plug in model versus a cordless. Every spot I have cleaned on my carpet turned out SO clean I have had to go over that... 4/5 0, December 21, 2001

    Great, misunderstood machine

    Looking at a number of previous reviews, I'd like to clarify a few points:* It's not a carpet cleaner, it's a _spot scrubber_. Anyone purchasing a machine with a single brush who expects to clean whole sections of carpet deserves all the self-inflicted frustration they've expressed here. My father-in-law tried to use our scrubber to clean his entire entryway. His verdict: "The thing is worthless." My wife and I just roll our eyes.* The spray nozzle shoots out lots of solution in a narrow, focused pattern, perfect for treating _spots_. It takes only a few pumps. The image of someone stalking around a room trying to spray anything more than about 20 inches square (again, anything more than a _spot_) is just painful.* The thing sucks strongly enough to fill the dirty water reservoir. I suspect that some folks haven't cracked the manual or noticed the yellow knob to switch between scrubbing and suction.All that said, I hate to think of living without this... 4/5 0, March 30, 2004

    Works for me!

    We struggled between buying this unit and the comperable Dirt Devil offering, when we saw them at the local discount stores. Liking the stiffer dual-rotating beater-bar style brushes on the Bissell better than the much softer brushes on the spinning disk the Dirt Devil had, we settled on the Bissell. At the store, the only negative factor for the Bissell appeared to be it's one-year warranty, versus the two-years offered with the Dirt Devil.We did not consider a cordless model, presuming they would be less powerful. We also did not consider a model without scrub brushes.I used our new Bissell briefly last night on a couple of recent pet stains, and it did a good job. Today, I used it on all the rest of the pet stains on our light living room carpet, many of which were old. Almost all of them lifted well.The Bissell clean tank will hold a full 8 oz.

    One powerful little cleaner

I have 3 kids and 2 dogs, so it seems that accidents are a daily occurence. I used this Spotlifter on some old pop stains that have been on the carpet for months, and it got them out no problem. I couldn't believe how well it worked and how dirty the water was that came out of my carpet. It worked so well that I decied to try it on my couch and chair, and it did a great job on them as well. Next stop was my car's interior, which was no small feat. It made my 6 year old minivan look and smell almost new. Buying this Spotlifter was definitely money well spent. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 3, 2003

    Do not WASTE your money!

    I feel bad about giving this review, but I must. This is the worst machine ever created. Let me say that I think Bissell has excellent quality machines (Little Green) but this is not one of them.First of all, this machine has absolutely NO suction to it whatsoever. I managed to trigger out around a cup full of solution, and the spotlifter only 'sucked' 1/4 of it back up. My carpet was soaking wet. I had to lug out my Hoover Steamvac to suck up the rest of the water. Naturally, I thought I had a faulty spotlifter, so I exchanged it for another one. I got the SAME thing, a spotlifter without suction.Secondly, the trigger mechanism is horrid. Instead of it releasing a steady stream of liquid, it is spray oriented, where you must continuously spray it like a spray bottle. That becomes extremely tiresome, and it actually hurts your hands, as when you 'try' to suction the liquid, you have to tilt the machine forward and it is very cumbersome and large.All in all, I hated... 1/5 Susan Shams (West Des Moines, IA) - See all my reviews, February 29, 2004

    Product Nightmare

    Oh, how I wish I had checked reviews before I bought this product! Whoever designed this product was apparently a hateful, vengeful person who secretly wants to ruin the day of housewives everywhere. Some of my favorite features of this product are:When you are cleaning up a disgusting spot of something, this device will randomly spew the dirty water out of the side vents, usually all over your legs as you are crouched over the spot trying to remove it. This happens when the product has a bare tablespoon of dirty water. Would it have been so hard to, I don't know, make the holding tank big enough to hold the dirty water? Or maybe make it where, when slightly full, the dirty water goes ANYWHERE other than on you and your house? Have you ever smelled hot dog urine water that has been steamed out of a vent? That smell will stay in your house for MONTHS, and no amount of spot scrubbing will help.The scrub brush is pretty much useless, it kind of scrubs the spot,... 1/5 India M.

    Works well but you have to know how to use it...

    This is my second hand held spot cleaner. It works and works well, but you have to understand how to use it (I made this disclaimer because I read the first few reviews which were all negative). Certainly there are pros and cons to this cleaner, but read on...Pros:1) Powerful, that's why it's so noisy, or vice versa. The description says it's the industry's most powerful "Hand-Held Extractor". I don't know on what basis they make that claim, but it is certainly powerful.2) The scrubber does work but you have to be patient and you don't have to use a lot of strength or force. You just need to put it right at the spot and keep it there and move it gently. If you look at it sideways you can see it's doing it's job. Because the scrubber only rotates one way I do it at a 90% angle as well to make sure it hits the stain at a different angle.Cons:1) Noisy (cf. powerful above). I don't know if a powerful vacuum can be made quiet, but part of the... 4/5 John B. Goode "JBG" (Earth) - See all my reviews, September 18, 2011
