Dirt Devil with HEPA filter

We have three or four small red Dirt Devils that run about $35 at Walmart (don't rememberr the model name) and which has a HEPA filter.

We've had several other small vacuums and they were basically toys -- this one pulls up balls and balls of dog hair.

We have allergies and my spouse is a pulmonologist -- he insists you all get the HEPA filter model. It has been so great for us that we bought another couple for the cars and one for the motorhome too. Can't recommend it strongly enough.

We've been researching small vacuum cleaners for our new Airstream 25FB that has carpeting in the bedroom and a vinyl floor elsewhere. We looked at portable cordless models by Shark, Dirt Devil, and Black & Decker (Dustbuster).

The Shark model we once owned only lasted a few weeks and then the battery died and could not be replaced. This seems to be a common problem with Sharks. The Dirt Devil and Black & Decker models don't seem to have enough suction.

While shopping at Target we found a Durabuilt 12-volt, twin-motor, auto vacuum cleaner for the grand price of $12.99. It has a 12-foot extension cord that plugs into the 3 power sockets in our trailer. The second motor is in the rotating brush attachment. Weight is only a pound or two because there is no heavy battery.

Performance has exceeded our expectations. We have 2 dogs and the little vacuum picked up all the hair embedded in the carpet and cleaned up the vinyl floors well. The crevice attachment gets into small spaces with even greater suction. Emptying the dirt container and filter were easy too.

I bought the coolest little vacuum from Lowes. It's the Shark 1000 watt plug in model. It has a turbo brush and reusable hepa filter. Tons of power and extremely quiet. Go plug-in, cordless just doesnt have the power you need.

That sounds like the one that my wife bought last year. We also have a Dirt Devil, but my wife said the Shark was better. We used it for 3 months straight this past summer with no problems. It seems to have quite a bit of power too, and several attachments. My wife got it on sale for about $30 or less as she recalls.
