Dirt Devil Featherweight review

A small vacuum cleaner should be lightweight, easy to use and maneuver, and should have enough features to do all the quick and small cleaning tasks like cleaning the stairs, upholstery, furniture, spills and debris, and the car. That’s what a small vacuum cleaner is supposed to do.

The Dirt Devil Featherlite is a small canister vacuum for all those who have a preference for canisters and still want a lightweight and small design. It offers advanced cyclonic filtration and strong performance on both bare floors and carpets. Being lightweight yet powerful, you can rely on this vacuum to do all those tasks which a small vacuum is supposed to do. Here are some features that make it one of the top rated vacuums.


The Featherlite Canister Vacuum weighs only 9 lbs, which is really lightweight compared to other canister vacuums out there. It is also small in size, making it easy to store.

Easy to Carry Around

It has rubber wheels, both of which roll independently, making it easy to maneuver around your home, without worrying about scratching your floors.

7ft. hose

The 7ft. hose lets you clean hard-to-reach areas easily using the many on-board attachments available. The flexible hose allows cleaning floors, upholstery, stairs, and even your furniture. This gives the Featherlite Canister the versatility that other small vacuums usually lack.

Strong cyclonic and HEPA filtration

Advanced cyclonic filtration as well as a HEPA filter deliver superb performance on carpets and bare floors. Though it doesn’t have a brush roll for pet hair and deep carpet cleaning, it does a decent job on low pile carpets and cleaning surface debris.


The Dirt Devil Featherlite Canister is a steal for those who have easy-to-clean surfaces in their homes. It can be used as a second small vacuum as well as the main vacuum if you don’t have deep pile carpets and pets in your home.

However, if you are looking for a small vacuum that gives you cordless convenience, ultra-maneuverability and ease to clean difficult surfaces like stairs and car, this vacuum may not be the ideal pick for you. Since it is actually a canister, it is difficult to carry it on the stairs. Plus, it isn’t cordless making it difficult to carry outside to the garage for cleaning the car.

Strictly speaking, this is not what a small vacuum is meant to be. Still, it is a good steal for those who want a lightweight and small cleaning product to clean floors as well as other surfaces. Unless you have deep pile carpets and pet hair problem, this vacuum will leave your home sanitized and dust free.
