This little Dirt Devil with the big name is packing a lot of power and versatility in its compact body. Its three in one design gives you the convenience of a stick vacuum, the portability of a handheld vacuum and the cleaning power of a utility vacuum.
All of this plus the power of the Dirt Devil name make this machine a serious contender for anyone looking for a compact stick-style workhorse.
The pros and cons of this stick vacuum are heavily skewed to the positive, as this list indicates:
- 3-in-one design
- Handheld unit releases easily from the stick base
- Smooth rolling wheels to prevent damage to hardwood floors
- Lightweight and comfortable to carry
- Simple on/off switch is easily accessible
- Bagless dirt collection system

We Don't Like
- Cord does not automatically rewind
- Not as effective on high pile carpet
- One year limited warranty
The first thing that you notice about this machine is the Dirt Devil name. This assures you of quality construction. The simple on/off switch is easy to reach. The powerful motor gets the machine up to full vacuum speed quickly. Weighing in at only 3.8 pounds, this Dirt Devil Simpli-Stik Lightweight Corded Bagless Stick Vacuum is easily transported to any location where its cleaning power is needed.
The bagless dirt collection system means no annoying bags to change, and the inner filter can be easily rinsed for reuse. The included crevice cleaning tool allows you to reach hard to get to areas like behind large furniture and appliances, along baseboards against hardwood or carpeted floors, and even between sofa cushions. The large opening for the utility vacuum allows for cleaning of larger debris messes.
The 16 foot cord has to be manually wrapped to the back of the stick; it does not automatically rewind inside the unit. Because of the smaller size of the floor head, it does not do as well on high pile carpet as larger capacity machines may. The dimensions of the unit make it easy to store in tight places, measuring only 7 inches by 9 inches with a 40 inch stick handle.
The floor head is designed for seamless switching between multi surface flooring, including low pile rugs. The controls are conveniently located on the stick and handheld unit. The wheels on the vacuum are designed to be gentle on all floor surfaces.
If you need a combination unit that can handle your day-to-day cleaning needs, this Lightweight Corded Bagless Stick vacuum may be just what you’re looking for. It is portable and easy to maneuver. The handheld vacuum detaches easily and slides back into place just as quickly. The powerful 1.25 amp motor provides constant suction power that can handle a variety of messes. From fine dust particles to pet hair, the crevice cleaner can get into tight spaces like between sofa cushions and around baseboards. Included is the known quality behind the Dirt Devil name to go along with the one year limited warranty.
