Dirt Devil 12 Amp - Dirt Devil





The Album, The Gear, The Band

I recently purchased two new guitars and an amp. I've always wanted to perform as part of a group, but I've been able to get away with flying solo on the acoustic guitar. All 12 songs were written during a period spanning both my high school and college years--each one tied to a distinct time of developmental struggle or awakening. I don't consider it a polished or masterful piece of work, but at least an honest one that in many ways represents the hurdles I had to overcome in order to produce it. And--having produced the entire thing on my own from start to finish--I...  Throughout that time, I continued writing and exploring new sounds--and now I have another whole collection of songs I'm excited to work on.   Jumping into transition, I've quite literally "geared up" for what's to come. I'd attempted recording an album a few times since high school, but always managed to sabotage myself in one way or another. Our plan is to start gigging within the next few months after we've got a good batch of songs practiced and ready to go. ) The other is a brand new G&L ASAT Special semi-hollow electric, which I've named Gun and paired up with a lightly used Vox AC30cc2x amplifier. In September I released my first album  With Tongue & Teeth .   Completing the project ended up being a bit of a revitalizing experience for me. call it a time of "mental throat-clearing" if you will. I won't go into the nitty gritty of it, but in short I just wasn't ready to do it. Now that it's done, With Tongue & Teeth  feels to me like a time capsule of sorts. Thus, I'm happy to say I've started jamming with a stellar group of righteous musicians I met in college. It's only been about a month since we started getting together on the weekends, but so far the sounds we're making are super rad and I'm stoked about the direction things are headed. In a sense I feel I've caught up with myself and my music.

    IMPORTANT INFO regarding CLOGS

    I've owned this vac for about 2 months and began experiencing loss of suction and poor performance. I was literally at wit's end and ready to throw the thing out the window. I bought new filters and still the same problems. I read the instruction manual over and over, looking for some reason. Here's the deal that the instruction manual DOESN'T mention: there is a pre-filter inside the plastic "bagless" collector part you pull out and empty (NOT related to the grey sponge or the HEPA filter). Open the bottom of the dirt/dust collector. Empty the contents and look up inside. There is a black cylinder inside a clear cylindrical receiver. I hold the bagless collector in my left hand so when I turn it upside down, the assembly is on the right. You can't miss it, although I did for 2 months. That is where all the hair and other light-weight junk builds up!!! Give the black cylinder a counter-clockwise twist, pull it out, and clean. I literally pulled out about a packed 8-ounce... 4/5 Amazon Customer "I Be Shoppin'" (Charlotte, NC) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil EZ Lite Bagless Canister Vacuum, SD40010 (Kitchen) I've owned this vac for about 2 months and began experiencing loss of suction and poor performance.

    Cheap, powerful, versatile, easy to use and clean.

    I can't believe how many people complain about having to clean out the dirt, debris, hair, and dust from a BAGLESS vacuum. How did they think the dirt got out, internal incineration? Having no bag means it uses filters and catches to stop the stuff on your floor and in your carpet from blowing out the other end of the machine after it's sucked up.How about this: buy some cheap rubber or latex gloves and a cheap white breathing mask to wear while you clean out the canister each time if you can't handle getting dirty and you don't want to pay more for a fancier vacuum.I looked on Amazon and the top rated bagless canister vacs are Miele and are up to $500+. I'm assuming they are less effort to clean out but the principle is the same. Everything that goes in, must come out one way or the other even if it means clogging up your machine and throwing the whole thing away.As for using this one, yes, everything it sucks up, you have to eventually dump... 5/5 Christo "Chris" (Montana) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil EZ Lite Bagless Canister Vacuum, SD40010 (Kitchen) I can't believe how many people complain about having to clean out the dirt, debris, hair, and dust from a BAGLESS vacuum.

    The BEST Canister Vac ~ Especially for Hard Surface Floors

    After much research on floor cleaners and vacuums, I asked for this vacuum for Christmas. At first, it took a little getting used to maneuvering it around. I have all wood floors throughout the house and this has been a DREAM! It's very light weight, easy to get around, has an awesome adjustable suction feature, love the retractable cord, the two on-board attachments, and quieter than any up right I've ever owned. I never owned a canister before this one and I'm so glad to have gotten this one as my first! The ONLY thing I can say that I wish they had done diff. is the handle on it. It should have been placed on the opposite end of the canister. When I place it on its bottom for storage, it rests on the handle so that I end up lifting it up by the base of the hose when I get it back out to use it. It won't rest on the opposite end. It just seems it was done backwards. This doesn't effect the operation of the vacuum. I just hate lifting it by the hose.

    Powerful Performance, Devilishly Good

    If you're looking for a quick rating of the Dirt Devil's performance, it gets five stars. But as they say, the devil is in the details. Below is a brief overview, with discussion to follow.Pros:* Very powerful suction* Assembles quickly* Large dirt cup capacity* Removal of dirt cup is fast* Fairly quiet* Electric cord length is about 20'* Sturdy wheels* Low-profile cleaning head* Capable of hanging storageCons:* Replacement of dirt cup requires precision* Weight of vacuum a factor in some cases* Plastic casingIf you are accustomed to a battery powered stick vacuum, you will be pleasantly surprised at the performance of this electric powered, lightweight, stick vacuum. It has the ability to pick up small and larger pieces of dirt on both hard floors and those with carpeting.

    I agree with Consumer Reports this is the best vac of its type

    When looking to invest in major household appliances, I find Consumer Reports to be helpful as well as consumer reviews on sites such as Amazon. I always wonder when I read consumer reviews if they were written by a paid hack (for positive reviews) or by the competition (for negative reviews). I find if I put the two together I can get the clearest picture of what a product can and can not do for me.I wanted a lightweight vacuum for quick cleaning hard surfaces that was still a powerhouse that could get the job done, so I looked vacuums up on Consumer Reports. CS pegged this vacuum as the best performing vac in its class.It has a larger than average motor for more suction power and having a cord instead of a battery pack means it's lightweight but does not lose its power over time the way all rechargeable models can. The cord is also able to support the afore mentioned larger motor.The problem reported by users of this vacuum's predecessor was that... 5/5 L. Wilde (USA) - See all my reviews, February 20, 2013

This review is from: Dirt Devil Type F1 HEPA Vacuum Filter, 3JC0280000 (Housewares) I don't understand why this product gets such high reviews. The part I received was not a Dirt Devil product but a knock off. I would have kept it but the part does not work. The inlet diameter of the filter that I received is bigger than the correct part. The first time I used it, it unseated from the inlet mount. Now I question if the filter material may also be a cheap knock off. Be forewarned, even though the item title say "by Dirt Devil", it most certainly is not. 0, June 16, 2012

    Awesome!

    Is it too much to ask for a vacuum to pick up stray pieces of paper, not to spit dirt out the back, and be light? This one fits the bill. I owned a dirt devil featherlite 9 years ago but after my husband touched it after 8 years, it didn't suck much anymore. Up till then it worked great. So I bought a vacuum that cost triple this vacuum thinking more expensive so it should be a wonderful vacuum. NOT! It didn't work well at all. Wouldn't pick up papers and kept shredding paper over the carpet, wouldn't suck it up. It also kept spitting dirt out the back on hard floors, or at least every direction except up the canister. I had a herniated disc for 10 months, every time I used the expensive vacuum, it was so heavy and bulky it kept throwing my back out more and kept me down for a week in pain. I was so happy to see kohl's had the new improved version of my old featherlite. It works as good if not better than the last one I had. It sucks really well.

    Well worth the money! Best in price range!

    OK, first off one of the top reviews says it takes 13 steps to empty. Mine doesn't, it takes TWO! One push the button on top to release the cansiter, two press the button on the side of the canister to open the bottom (over your trash can of course :P). I added pictures illustrating these buttons, plus a picture of all of the dirt! Also, do not expect Dyson fit and finish out of this vacuum. Its in a COMPLETELY different price category. That being said, what it excels at it is being the best vacuum cleaner I have used short of a Dyson.

    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

    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.
