Dirt Devil UD30010 Featherlite Bagged Upright

My initial reaction was this was a DYI vacuum cleaner.   I opened the box and found a snap fit vacuum cleaner.   After reading the documentation I discovered it was really only 4 Phillips head screws to assemble the cleaner.  The assembly was quick and easy although the instructions were a touch confusing as they have multiple languages together for each step.   I prefer keeping the languages separate but realize this version probably saves some trees.

The vac is very light and wouldn't be a burden carrying.  The hose is long and easily removed to use the cleaning wands or brush.   I vacuumed a very dirty carpet in my garage where I assemble stuff like this.  It did a nice job and picked up grass and leaves as well as normal dirt.   I tried the smooth surface selection on the concrete floor and it worked well there too. 

Overall a favorable impression on a very inexpensive unit.   Durability is not known.  If what I consider premature failure occurs I will report back here.

From the vendor:
Lightweight - Less Than 10 Pounds
Full Bag Indicator
10 Foot Hose ; 13 Inch Nozzle

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