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.

    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. (It performed beautifully on tile floors, oriental rugs, and thickly padded, dense carpeting.) And... 5/5 Sharon Beverly - See all my reviews, June 27, 2012

    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

    Terrific Performer and Outstanding Value

    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

    Can suck the chrome off a trailer hitch but breaks

    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.

    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. The owner of the vac shop told me the difference between the models that are receiving the complaints here and the Classic 0100 that I bought today is that the others are air driven and mine is belt driven and that's... 4/5 Joanne Reynolds "Joanne" (Mansfield, Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil Classic 7 Amp Bagless Handheld Vacuum, M0100 (Kitchen) 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.

    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.

    Great Product - Confusing Product Information

    When trying to decide if this model (3670G) was the right vacuum for me, I found a considerable amount of confusing information regarding it's features on the internet..and from the manufacturer itself. First of all, many online retailers flat out state (inaccurately) that this model has a "HEPA" (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter and at least one of the reviews for it here on Amazon (at least as of this writing) seems to indicate that it has one as well. I can tell you outright that having checked with the manufacturer directly and now owning one myself that it does *NOT* have a "HEPA" filter. More on that a little later in this review however.I found another confusing aspect of the description is in the model number (i.e. 3670G).

If you have hardwood floors and are, like I was, tired of chasing after dust/dirt particles that your upright BLOWS around instead of sucking up, try this vac. It's powerful and makes quick work of what was, before, a major chore. I have sisal and dhurie wool rugs which neither of the uprights I've had before would do anything on, and this vaccuum works beautifully on both of those surfaces, as well. This is a fabulous product at a really fair price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 1, 2006

    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.
