Dirt Devil Gator Review

The Dirt Devil Gator is a cordless, lightweight (4.4 pounds) hand held vacuum with 15-3/5 volts of power suction at a fantastic price of $39.99. It’s perfect for cleaning those hard to reach places, counter tops or bookshelves. The Dirt Devil Gator has a slick design and an appearance which suits its name. This devil is perfect for vacuuming your vacuum!


Well, it’s a very basic, ordinary hand held vacuum with the ability to do a great job on hard surfaces and carpeted surfaces. The Dirt Devil Gator works is perfect for vehicles due to the size, suction and cordless design. The small size of the vacuum makes cleaning rather quite convenient (if you don’t run out of battery).


On the whole, the suction isn’t brilliant and you can sometime struggle to pick up some crumbs off the floor and the battery life is quite disappointing averaging about 10 minutes with full suction and then winding down. No matter how long you charge it for, it’ll never produce full suction for over 10 minutes which is a huge flaw because it usually runs out of ‘juice’ midway through a clean.

For the price you pay – it’s worth it. If you only need a little hand held vacuum for ‘every now and then’ cleans then this will serve you well. It isn’t too powerful and the battery life isn’t great, so this vacuum shouldn’t be relied upon too much. As I said, for the price you pay, it’s good but if you need something stronger and more consistent; I’d suggest investing more money in a vacuum.
