Good Size

Several Dirt Devil Featherlite reviewers who bought the product agreed that it was lightweight. Toptenreviews.com wrote in their review of the Dirt Devil Featherlite four years ago “It's a lightweight device that proves easily maneuverable”.

Portable

Some Dirt Devil Featherlite owners who reviewed it said that it was easy to move around.

Nice Design

One person reckoned that it was a good design. Expert website Toptenreviews.com mentioned four years ago “The Dirt Devil FeatherLite SD40100 is a popular choice due to its compact design and efficiency at cleaning bare floors” in their review of this vacuum cleaner.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including the Hoover C1433010[plb_1097321_price], the VAX Air Mini Pet C88-AM-P[plb_2925505_price], or the Dirt Devil Rebel 53HF[plb_2474594_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This vacuum received an expert rating of 40 out of 100 from Howstuffworks.com. Experts aren't convinced by this Dirt Devil vacuum.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Featherlite does not have a brush tool. Most of the other vacuums that are a comparable age to the Featherlite also do not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum cleaner and we think the C1433010[pl_1097321_price], or the C1660900[pl_1097323_price] both from Hoover or the Dirt Devil Hand Vac 2.0[plb_3042261_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Cordless

The Featherlite is not cordless, although this is within the context that most of the other vacuums of this age and type are also not cordless.

If you are looking for a vacuum that is cordless then you might want to consider the Koblenz DV-110 KG3[plb_2341400_price], the VAX Life U91-LF-B[plb_2665551_price], or the Dirt Devil Hand Vac 2.0[plb_3042261_price] which also has a higher rating.
