FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Dirt Devil Hand Vac 2.0 Bagless Handheld Vacuum, SD12000

Price:   $34.99
This is somewhat different than my other Dirt Devil and my Shark.  The Shark has good suction and decent tools but has no beater brushes.   My older red Dirt Devil has a removable hose and with a custom made, rube goldberg narrowing attachment I can use it to get into tight spots in my computers when I am too lazy to get out my computer vac.  This vac does not have the ability to remove the hose and put on attachments.  It does have a more powerful motor and a significantly stronger beater brush.  

The filter is washable which is also a nice feature.   Emptying it is quite simplistic, just position your self over the trash can and flip up the release, shake (the vacuum) and the dirt does a gravity dive into the trash.

Dirt Devil provides a suitably long cord so you are not tethered on a tight leash.   Pick up is again above average and better than my older model Dirt Devil.   While not as convenient as my dust busters, this sucks infinitely better than they do.   Not often describing a product that sucks is a positive thing but in this case it most definitely is a positive.   My pardon if the word sucks offends you but searching for a synonym that as accurately describes the vacuum action was futile.

At $35 on Amazon it is a reasonable price for the product.  Of course Amazon has it priced at $34.99 which is now $0.01 less than their free shipping event horizon.   Therefore to get free shipping try and find something for two cents to get you over their new and much resented $35.00 purchase minimum. 

I did not ding the vac for having no accessories, it does no claim to have accessories so how can you complain about that.  If you read the description, you should know that.   It did come with a back up beater brush belt and a tool to help you install it.  I recommend a back up belt for any belt driven tool you use as the famous Murphy will certainly appear when you can least likely to afford being beltless. Overall a very nice little vac.

I did receive this for free to provide an honest review and if I didn't like it, I would not pull any punches.   (Don't believe me, check out some of my other reviews.)

Motor-driven high-speed brushroll that keeps rolling through and mess big or small.
20' powder cord with integrated storage.
Easily clean your couch then your stairs - without unplugging
Reusable quick-rinse filter
One-touch bottom empty dirt cup.
Go anywhere- clean where your full size vac can't (stairs, cars, upholstery and more).

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
