Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus Bagless Upright Review


Cheap and compact, the Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus impresses users with its cleaning ability even when faced with pet hair. The smallest model on our list, it weighs just 10.75 pounds.

The Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus Bagless Upright is the vacuum cleaner of choice for budget-conscious users who contend with mostly light-duty jobs, reviews assert. This compact model wins acclaim in hundreds of posts at Walmart and Amazon. Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus reviews note the surprising power from such a small machine, and say it tackles pet hair of many varieties (birds, cats, dogs) and acquits itself nicely on carpets and bare floors. Several assert it cleans up when stacked against larger, higher-priced models and finds its way into crannies that thwart bulkier machines. Senior citizens' two cents focus on the light weight of the Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus, which makes it easy enough to haul around. Users also like the retractable handle for its easy-to-store convenience.

Predictably, some Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus reviews throw a couple of darts. Complaints mostly involve loud noise (piercingly so, says one) and a short hose. A few deride the suction, especially when using the hose and tools.

The lightest vacuum on our list, the Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus (starting at $59, Amazon) weighs just 10.75 pounds and runs on a 7-amp motor. It features a HEPA filter, cleans a path 11 inches wide at the end of a 25-foot power cord, and adjusts to surface heights automatically. Compared with full-size budget-priced uprights, the hose is indeed short at just 4 feet, but an extension wand provides another 12 inches of reach. The Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus is also equipped with a dusting brush and crevice tool, and the telescoping handle lowers to a standing height of 31 inches. This model is covered under a two-year warranty.

The tiny Dirt Devil Dynamite Plus is a handy little vacuum. It offers convenience and functionality at a price that's hard to pass up.
