Dirt Devil Canister - Buying a Dirt Devil Canister Vacuum Cleaner

power features design nozzle

While upright vacuum cleaners have taken control of the U.S. market, many still prefer a canister vacuum cleaner. Even though uprights have many new features that emulate the functionality of a canister vac, the canister still has several advantages. Most canister vacs have attachments that make them usable on hard floors. Canisters are also more powerful and quieter than upright vacuums. They are also more flexible. The detachable hoses of upright vacs are short and cannot reach all places a canister vac can go. Canister vacs are also easier to store.

One of the top choices in this style is the Dirt Devil canister vacuum cleaner. The Dirt Devil Company was originally founded in Cleveland in 1905 as Royal Manufacturing. The Dirt Devil canister vacuum was introduced in the 1980s and immediately took off as a consumer favorite. Today, Dirt Devil is owned by TTI Floor Care North America, which also produces Hoover and Vax cleaners.

Dirt Devil canister cleaners come in a choice of styles, each with a slightly different modern design and set of features. Here are the Dirt Devil canisters currently in production:

Tattoo Bagged Canister
This compact canister bag is one of two Dirt Devil canister vacuum cleaners to still use a bag. This canister vac is special in that it is actually pretty. You can choose between several colors and each comes emblazoned with a “tattoo” design on the front and top. Choices include the following:

  • Black with Ivy
  • Bronze and White with Butterflies
  • Crimson and Star
  • Purple with Ivy

Each style features a retractable cord, carry handle, rubber-coated wheels, and a 10-amp motor. They sell for $79.99.
