The Dirt Devil Featherlite Review

The Dirt Devil Featherlite vacuum comes in both the bagged and bagless models. Truth be told, that’s about the only difference between the two. The good news is that, no matter which type you prefer, Dirt Devil has you covered.


The Dirt Devil Featherlite upright vacuum is a monster that comes in a compact package. It’s 12 amp motor provides all of the suction you need to clean both carpets and bare floors. It’s lightweight design makes it easy to push and easy to tote.

The UD40285 Featherlite Bagless Upright(shown above) comes with HEPA filtration and a no hassle clean release bottom-empty dirt cup so you have virtually no contact with dirt, dust, and debris. Plus, the fold down handle allows you to store it almost anywhere.

It features an extended 25 foot long power cord and the brush head is large enough to offer a 13” cleaning path, so you can cover more ground with each pass. The standard set of tools means you can easily clean and reach all of those hard to get spots around the house. It even has a powered hand tool to give you a new weapon against pet hair, and…it can be used on carpet and upholstery,as well.

A lifetime HEPA filter captures 99.9% of household allergens to help improve your indoor air quality, and the adjustable brush roll allows you to go from carpet to bare floor with ease. And, it has a scuff guard to protect your walls and furniture so you can get close for a superior cleaning job.

The M085590 Featherlite Bagged Vacuum (shown above) is easy to push and easy to carry from room to room, or up and down stairs. You’ll be able to attack your floors, clean stairs, upholstered furniture, and hard-to-get-at areas with the sixty inch stretch hose connected to the back of the unit with the included tools: an extension wand, dusting brush, and crevice tool.

It has a MicroFresh filtration process that traps over 99 percent of dust and allergens. The automatic height adjustment makes it perfect for carpet and hard floors. Also included is a bright headlight for cleaning those hard-to-see places, a 13-inch nozzle width, a 25-foot cord, side cord wrapping storage, and a soft touch bumper to protect walls and furniture from scuffs. It uses a Type U paper bag.
