A good tool, with good support

By Jenner

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

My first Dirt Devil Ultra -- about 20 years old -- had switch problems. I fixed it once; twice was -- well, a sign of time to get a new one. There are no serious competitors to the Dirt Devil Ultra; I bought another. The new version has some improvements (the old hose was removable, and the locking lugs had decayed a lot; the new hose is more permanently affixed, which solves one problem, creating another less serious one). It has some less helpful changes: The new brush roll is wood and the bristle-tufts are not as well fixed, so they can come out too easily. The red cloth bag seems of less rugged material. But this thing still sucks dirt like crazy. It is bagged -- not bagless -- so no dust all over when cleaning. Being corded, it never quits half-way through the job. In short, it is just what is needed, especially in the bird room (but elsewhere, too). My first replacement failed; I think a bearing in the motor broke, judging from the sound. Wouldn't suck, didn't spin the brush roll, made nasty noises. I called customer service and the person on the line listened to the noise and said, "you get a new one" (this tool has a three year warranty, and I could show when I had bought it at Amazon). "Cut off the cord of the old one, snap a picture of the cut ends and e-mail it, and we'll send yours right out." And it happened just that way; a week later I had a replacement. Last thought: My mother had Royal vacuums (Royal being the parent company, now absorbed in some vacuum cleaner company). One was a hand vacuum that looked a lot like the Dirt Devil. It was a favorite too then -- 70 years ago....


Hand Vac - Can't buy tool replacement

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

I bought this hand vac about 1 year ago. The hand vac suction is good, but crevice tool replacements have been discontinued. I have no idea why a manufacturer would discontinue parts for a machine currently sold. Alternate styles of crevice tools don't fit or are too think to function in small hard to reach spots. Basically, the hose is useless now. Think twice about buying an item without replacement parts.


convenience is what I bought this for!

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

I have reviewed some of the other reviews, and I can say that the attachments suction is not quite what some may think it should be, but I love the main vacuum unit and for what it costs, I figure that its great! I can finally clean the dog hair out of the car better than ever before, without dragging the large family vac out. Going up the stairs is no longer a tough and possibly dangerous episode.


Loud, poor suction, difficult to push on carpet

By Eddie Chang

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

I just purchased this item as a replacement for black and decker hand vacuum. This is the first time I've ever owned a dirt devil but it is a brand I recognize and consider it very reputable so I did not do my homework on researching reviews. I've used it a few times already and have some observations. It is very loud my much more so than my Previous hand vacuum. My kids would immediately cover their ears and run away. second, the suction is week some crumbs would be missed requiring a second run over. Third, its very difficult to push along carpet. I find myself using the hose extension instead but find that the suction is very week. on the good side it seems very well made and sturdy but it lacks power and is very loud.


It sucks! And that's a good thing.

Replaced an old hand vac. What a difference! Better suction, wider "mouth" and integral hose for attachments.


No auction in hose

By Jjbean

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

I just bought this vaccuum today, te main part has good auction but the hose is so weak, but the main part does not close all the way there is about a centimeter that just won't shut, is it supposed to shut all the way? If not then this is an awful vaccuum for using the hose part which is what I really wanted it for. :(


Works Great!

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

This one was purchase to replace an old one I had for 20 years. It works great and I love the tube feature....especially in my car! It is VERY EXTREMELY loud, but it works so well, I'll overlook that part and wear ear protection if needed! Thanks!


little has changed

Comments about Dirt Devil Corded Had Held:

Daniel sent a review 2 years ago and thought the tube was useless and it was loud. Nothing has changed. I do like to regular roller part as we use it on stairs.
