Dirt Devil Gator 10.8V Cordless Hand Vacuum | Review


Recently I’ve had the opportunity to review a new Dirt Devil Gator 10.8v Cordless Hand Vacuum from the Gator Series™.

25th Anniversary of Dirt Devil

As I’ve been married for over 30 years, I’ve had several different vacuums by various manufactures.

Currently I own a Dirt Devil Pet Vac Legacy Rewind with hepa filter.  I also own a Dirt Devil Easy Steamer Carpet Shampooer.  I find their products to be very reputable and affordable.

This past summer I went camping to the Connecticut shore with my daughter, son-in-law and the grandkids.  As I have two car-seats, we used my car when we were driving from our camp site to the beach, or out to dinner.  Needless to say, my car collected quite a bit of sand in it!

After charging the vacuum, I found the Dirt Devil Gator quite powerful and it did a good job collecting all the sand and other debris that collected on my car seats and floor mats.

I also tested it on the carpeted stairs to the second floor, and was amazed at the amount of cat hair that this little vacuum picked up!

When I went to empty it, once I slid the tabs back, I can see where the name was derived from – it actually did look like an alligator’s  mouth!  The filter was full, however easy to clean.

Energy Star Compliant

The Dirt Devil® Gator Series™ dirt cup flips open for easy emptying versus the traditional two-piece dirt cup that requires users to take the unit apart and remove dirt and dust with their hands. Now, you’ll be able to just press the release buttons and empty debris without touching the dirt, saving both time and effort.

This whole new line of hand vacs marks the 25th anniversary of Dirt Devil’s powerful and compact cleaning product entering the marketplace.The Gator Series vary in voltage (10.8V-18V) and price ($29.99-$59.99) and will be available at Target and Best Buy.

Features Include:

  • Dirt Devil® Gator 10.8VTM
  • Cordless Hand Vacuum
  • Gator SeriesTM  Dirt Cup for easy emptying
  • Powerful suction for quick clean ups
  • Built-in crevice tool for cleaning tight spaces
  • ENERGY STAR approval
  • 3-Year Warranty

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced yet powerful, easy-to-use hand vac, I would recommend putting this on your holiday shopping list for the car enthusiast, new grads or newlyweds.

  1. Thank you for the review! I’m actually sick and tired of lugging our monstrous vacuum up each stair to clean them. I’ll have to look into this as an option.
