The Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum is an upright model with some character and a decent price tag – currently selling for around $90. In this review of the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then determine if it’s a good buy or if you should pass on it. As I mentioned, I really like the styling on this model. The top part has a little flair out, which almost reminds me of a Dyson. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: a motorized brush roll with adjustable height settings, a crevice tool, stretch hose, dusting brush, back-saver wand, HEPA filter, and an easy-empty canister. The 14 inch cleaning path is pretty handy for bigger rooms. I definitely get the feeling that this vacuum is intended mainly for carpeted houses, with the brush roll and the included attachments.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum. First off, the stretch hose isn’t long enough and the main unit tips over if you extend it too much. Also, the hose keeps coming off when you are trying to use it. Another thing is that it does horrible on bare floors. I know this model is intended for carpets only, but it’s still annoying if you have a mix of carpet and bare floors. The components also seem a little cheap – but not horrible. Overall, the Dirt Devil Power Reach vacuum cleaner is still a pretty good unit. It has great suction power, and the price is wonderful. I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.
