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.

    Dirt Devil

    Smaller than expected, but a good cleaner.

    Despite shipping hiccups and a few cracks in the plastic which were easily repaired with a bit of duct tape, the vacuum is a great little sucker. I have a 2 bed, 2 bath apt. with 2 cats and a large dog, so I have to empty the container a couple times each room. This would be a lot better for an apartment without pets, but in the end it works really well and cleans great, so it doesn't really bother me to empty it often. The suction is pretty amazing, my roommates GF has the original DD Breeze (12 amp, non cyclonic) and this really does a better job, pushes easier, and cleans up more dirt even while only having a 10 amp motor. The tools are simple but work fine as well and the hose connects simply and sturdily.All in all its a great cheap vacuum, I would spend a bit more if I could do it over again and get a heavier duty and larger dirt container vacuum instead. That all said, if you are debating between the ~$50 vacuums, this is probably the one to get as its the latest... 2/5 Jake Smith (Phoenix, AZ) - See all my reviews, August 31, 2012

    A Video of the the Dirt Devil Breeze

    Customer Video Review Length:: 3:36 MinsThe Dirt Devil Breeze Bagless Vacuum Cleaner is a powerful but lightweight upright vacuum cleaner. I have tried other Dirt Devil upright vacuum cleaners with mixed success. Dirt Devils offer a nice combination of power and value, but I have had issues with quality. The Dirt Devil Breeze seems to follow that pattern. It was easy to assemble and offer plenty of power, but I am afraid that the canister will have issues snapping (and staying) in place.Notes- - The vacuum is lightweight and can be easily lifted with one hand - Limited number of attachments - Actually, it only has one 1 attachment - the attachment for the stairs - Bagless system - all of the debris is trapped in the canister, so the Dirt Devil Breeze does not use a bag. While it does not have bag it does have a washable and reusable filter. - Assembly is simple - it requires a philips head screw driver and about 5 minutes... 4/5 CKE (USA) - See all my reviews, December 8, 2012

    A Smallish Cleaner for Smallish Spaces

    0 5/5 Oldog_Oltrix "Larry" (Washington DC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dirt Devil Breeze Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum, UD70105 (Misc.) This is a reduced-size vacuum cleaner, so the canister is smaller and has to be emptied more often. However, the cleaning performance is the equal of most larger cleaners. Their cyclonic technology really does work.This is an excellent choice for a studio apartment or one-bedroom apartment. Don't try to clean your 3-bedroom house with it. Wrong tool for the job.It's made of plastic. It's well-made, but you have to treat it with respect.Buy extra belts, and then remember where you put them. Sooner or later, something will get tangled in the brush roller and you will burn up a belt before you can reach the power switch. It's not a flaw, it's a vacuum cleaner fact of life.I spent a lot of hours studying vacuum cleaners and reading reviews. You can save a lot of work by trusting me. Or, do it the hard way.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Still a great hand vac!

    I bought a Dirt Devil hand vac in the early 1980's because the carpet salesman where I bought my new carpet told me it would be far superior for use on stairs than the attachment that came with my upright (Rainbow) vacuum cleaner. He was right and I also loved that hand vac for cleaning my upholstered furniture. I bought a Dyson Animal vacuum cleaner last year and I wish I could say that the upholstery attachment sucks, but it doesn't, and it is hard to put on and take off of the hose. I like the Dyson for my carpets but am not at all impressed with their attachments. So, today I bought this Dirt Devil Classic and it is great! I read the reviews here and others were complaining about some of the other models. This hand vac has a belt and the belt can be replaced.

    I thought I liked it, but then...

    I started out liking this machine, despite being not so fond of our former Dirt Devil "screamer" with the ridiculous belt changing routine. The problems with this machine are: try cleaning the pleated filter (good luck!) and the exhaust blowing out the sides and then slightly downward blows around what you're trying to vacuum up. I am really surprised no one else has mentioned these two issues (except for one person who mentioned the filter). After just one use, I had to knock the pleated filter against the trash can to loosen and remove the dirt--no go. So what are the options? Leave the dirt in there to continually clog it, and then be forced to go buy a new one for $5.99? I honestly think this was the goal of Dirt Devil, just to make an extra buck. And if you're trying to vacuum up pet hair, and anything light weight, watch it blow around from the exhaust as you go chasing it with the vacuum (utterly futile). It's on the loud side too.

    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.

    Terrible for pet hair!

    After my Shark canister vac finally bit the dust, this was the only canister vac I could find after going to several stores. That was the main reason I bought it. We have four short hair dogs, two of which shed quite a bit. I have used this vacuum about a dozen times now and if the floor has more than a day or two worth of hair buildup, the hair just collects on the brush, it doesn't suck up into the vacuum. The first time it happened, I couldn't figure out why all of a sudden the vacuum wasn't picking anything up. So I turned the suction head upside down and found it completely clogged with dog hair. I ended up pulling out about a softball sized wad of hair out of the head by the time I was done. My Shark never had a problem picking up the hair or with clogging so I know it's not just that we have too much hair (too many dogs, yes - but a reasonable amount of hair for a vacuum to handle). I also have the Roomba IRobot and it handles our floors without missing a beat. This... 1/5 N.

    OK, but doesnt pick up well enough

    0 1/5 cyber-secretary "cyber-secretary" (OC, CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil Vision Bagless Canister Vacuum with Power Nozzle, M082750 (Kitchen) Very disappointed with this product. It makes a noise like a jet engine about to take off, the vacuum head is heavy and cumbersome to manoever; the cord is ridiculously short, but worse out of all, it doesnt pick up small bits on carpet, eg fluff, threads, beads and generally the bits you are trying to vacuum up, its not that it moves them around or pushes them out of the way - it just does not pick them up at all!Took it back to the store after 1 day. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 30, 2008

    Dirt Devil does a nice job

    The only negatives I have with this vac are fairly minor. First of all, the cord is way too short. I have to repeatedly relocate the plug as I move thru the house or attach an extension cord which doesn't roll up inside the retraction hole of course. Secondly, the hose is fairly lightweight plastic and gets twisted on itself too easily. It also collapses if twisted or compressed. This doesn't impact how it works, but I just have to be mindful of the hose to make sure I don't get it twisted. The attachment caddy is kind of a nuisance as it attaches to the main tube between power nozzle and hose. This constantly gets bumped on things as I work and the attachments fall off. It would be better if they were somehow inside the body of the cannister or attached to it. Lastly there needs to be one more attachment which is larger for sweeping hard surface floors instead of using the power nozzle all the time. The power nozzle does fine for this with the beater bar turned off, but a larger... 4/5 P. Newport (Mesa, Arizona United States) - See all my reviews, September 6, 2011
