Surprised... I was!

Comments about Dirt Devil SD40120 Canister Vacuum:
Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Canister Vacuum I bought this today and quickly assembled it without concerns. I tried it on the RV (28') Easy to get in everywhere & noise was fine for me. Vacuum power -- Very Much better than I'd hoped for at the price. It has well thought out tools too, simple and great design, clean-up after is neat & simple-smart. No bags to fuss with either.. My 'gut' says the plastics used are likely the weakest feature. I enjoyed using it on the RV today .. .just perfect not clumsy at all. I liked what it did so much I continued on to my 'sport suv'.. It worked so well on the seats I did them all. Then I did my small shop-- and I am now looking for more .. Pleasure to pull over crushed rock with those big wheels + easy carry ! Over-all I found everything 'better' than my doubting-Thomas mind had expected, In both design and performance. For the price! I am one very satisfied buyer ..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Packs a powerful punch
from White Marsh, MD
What a terrific vacuum, wish I had this many years ago. The suction is fantastic, the ease of the button on the handle for use of the power nozzle for carpet is great! It doesn't weigh much so pulling it around is very easy. To empty the canister is so simple a youngster could do it. As soon as it arrived, I vacuumed my whole house and the amount of stuff left over from my old vacuum was amazing. My carpets (I have area rugs, runners and a couple bedrooms with carpet) that this Hoover made them look so much better it was remarkable and it does an awesome job on my laminate floors, gently cleaning without scuffing. Do yourself a favor and try this Dirt Devil Cyclonic. I was expecting something a bit quieter and softer--but since the dogs don't seem too bothered I'm fine with it. I would highly recommend this machine to everyone. An excellent value too.

We've had this vacuum for over a year now. I regret buying it. It overheats very quickly - regardless of completely cleaning the filter after every use - and will just shut off. We have a small home and it shuts down three or four times before we can finish vacuuming our house. I would not recommend it, and in fact will not purchase another Dirt Devil product because of our experience with this machine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am so happy that I got this dirt devil product. The cyclonic action does a great job on all surfaces from tile to wood and all heights of carpet. It works so well, that my daughter decided to take it with her for her new apartment. It glides across the floor surfaces easily. The compact size allows for it to fit in a smaller place. The attatchments are easy to use.
Great vacuum !!!

I first used this vacuum about a week after my car had been "detailed" inside. I had thought I was just going to get a little bit on dirt off the floor mats, boy was I wrong. I ended up going over my seats first and I could not believe how much stuff I got out of the crevices that the detail shop did not pick up. This Vacuum is strong, It hold so much and I was just in amazement how well it performed. I used my old vacuum on my stairs and then decided to go over it again with this one. Wow!!! Just could not believe how much pet hair my old vacuum was leaving behind. Not only is this so easy to use on stairs because of how lightweight it is, it is super-powered at picking up dog hair!!! I am beyond happy with the Featherlight Cyclonic that I wont be using anything else!!! As a bonus to how well it performs, cleaning it out is a breeze!!!

I am extremely happy with the suction this feather lite has. It also navigates around with ease. Even if I change direction and flip around the large back wheels allows it to flip right over without falling over. I use this on my laminates as well as my carpet. It fits well to slide under bed, couches, ect. The only issues I have is that it doesn't glide over my carpet very well with the floor vacuuming attachment with the tiny wheels (pic included) also hair & string won't pick up with the floor vacuum attachment since there is no roller on the bottom(pic included) other than that I would highly recommend for fast portable cleanup.

I received the Dirt Devil FEATHERLITE Cyclonic Canister Vacuum a few weeks ago. I found the vacuum easy to assemble & the canister & filters are easy to clean. I used it on carpet, hardwood floors & places my 4 kitties like to lay, which is everywhere (furniture, cat trees, cat beds, ect.). I found that it picked up cat hair, dirt, ect. very well on all surfaces & it is lightweight. The wand is very easy to extend so it makes it easy to get to those "hard to reach places". It is compact in size & stores away in a small space. The reason I didn't give this vacuum 5 stars was because I think the cord should be longer & found it to be not so smooth on the carpet. Overall I really like this vacuum & it's suction power.
Nice design, just wasn't impressed
from Lansing, MI
Ok so first I will start off with the positive points of this product. I like how easy to carry it is, it is lightweight and the cylinder is small. It has really awesome suction and I really like that you can lay the hose and handle down to get under furniture that is not easily moved. What I did not like about this vacuum was that the plastic handle part kept falling off the hose when it was not turned on which makes it difficult to carry with it falling apart. It does need to be emptied out more frequently because of the smaller canister so this is definitely ideal for small spaces. I also did not like that this is not easy to run over any sort of carpet or area rugs. It's pretty much only for hard wood floors but I was hoping it would at least glide easily over a small area rug. Also the instructions were not very clear on how to put it together so when I kept having an issue with the handle part falling off the hose I thought maybe I had put it together incorrectly but by looking at the pictures on the instruction book and the box it did appear that I did it correct. I also do not like that there is no place to attach the attachment piece. I am afraid of it getting lost somewhere so that was another downside. Even with the con issues it wasn't an overall terrible vacuum, it still did an awesome job sucking up dirt and debris and works really nice on hardwood floors. *I received this product for free/reduced price in exchange for my honest opinion. This is my opinion and my opinion alone*
