It takes more time cleaning the vacuum than it does to vacuum. You have to empty the canister, then there are 2 filters under the canister that have to be cleaned after each use. Then you have to remove a spindle that keeps back the larger dirt items. After you get that spindle thing out you need an extra 10 minutes to get it back in right. Vacuum it also noisy. Also have had it only 8 months and changed the belt 2 times.
I have had my vacuum for a few months now. From the very beginning the suction was horrible. We have to vacuum over the same spot over and over to get the carpet to look somewhat clean. It shoots the dirt out the back of the vacuum and if you use the attachment it blows dirt out of the hole. It is the worst vacuum I have ever owned. I am getting ready to buy a new one, and I will NEVER buy a Dirt Devil again!
I got the previous model of the ultravision. It worked great for about 2 months. However, the cleaner was no match for the dirt & hair of my 2 Rottweillers. It began to lose suction just 2 months. The filters had to be clean after each room. I had to clean the room twice due to the cleaning of the filters. After 1 yr, the spin brush was jam and stopped spinning. Time to switch back to hoover.
This is one of the worst products I have ever owned!! If you vacuum a thin kitchen rug the dirt flys out behind it and hits your feet. Within the first week I had to replace the brush roller (which I had to pay for)!! The hose does not reach anything, you have to pull and stretch on it while you stand on the vacuum. THE WORST PRODUCT EVER< DO NOT BUY!!!!
I am so disappointed in this product. It clogs up with carpet pieces after every use. Even after cleaning out the hose it still does not suck up anything! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! It is a waste of money. I will not be buying anything from Dirt Devil anymore. I suggest that you look up reviews before buying any product, expensive or not.
I don't know what the others are saying about the dirt blowing back but it has not happened to me. I love this vacuum. I bought it to replace a cheap hunk of junk bissell. This has picked up so much more than the cheapo vacuum ever has. I love the attachments too.
This vacuum doesnt pick up dirt and it is extremely hard to push, close to impossible in fact! it does not clean well whatsoever and its basically trash! DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE! you will regret it!!!!!
