About - Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagged M085590
This bag-equipped upright lives up to its name at just 14 pounds, making it easier than many uprights to drag over carpets and floors. It has HEPA filtration, which blocks fine particles and may be helpful for people with respiratory problems (although some vacuum cleaners without HEPA also filter dust well). This model has an easy-to-reach power switch, but no option to turn off the brush to make it easier to vacuum wood, vinyl, or stone floors. Often, a rotating brush will scatter dirt on bare floors before the machine can suck it up. This model lacks a full-bag indicator or pile-height adjustment feature, and the manual-wind 25-foot,cord is relatively short. Dirt Devil focuses on consumers who want a vacuum cleaner that is convenient and easy to use, but may not clean as deeply as some other models.

Comment:
I received this vacuum as a gift. Normally I never buy Dirt Devils. I still will not buy one. I prefer Eureka or Kenmore. Dirt Devils are not good vacuums in general. Anyway, I'll check back and update again.

Comment:
I bought this Featherlite for a rental property, where an expensive vacuum might disappear. Motor is powerful and reliable, but noisy. Good for carpets, but don't rely on hose attachments for long-term use. The plastic end of the hose cracked and hose will not stay attached to vacuum. Definitely not strong enough for use by teenagers.
