My review and perspective on model: UD40285 vacuum cleaner

This is the Dirt Devil UD40285 Featherlite Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.

These are not terrible vacuums, especially for the price. However you should be aware that in a market where mediocre quality vacuum cleaners run $350 or more a $70-$80 vacuum is not going to last you forever. People love their Dirt Devil's and always have, for the longest time I wondered why but they really do fit into the mentality most Americans have anymore. If you're looking for something that will get the job done for a year or two depending on how you treat it, and then you can just get a new vacuum after that this is perfect for you.

Model: UD40285 Product Description

Product Features

* Powerful 12 amp motor
* Bottom dirt cup release
* HEPA filtration
* Folding Handle
* On board tools, hose, and turbo tool


The Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Upright gives you more convenience, more power, and less weight in a compact design. A powerful 12 amp motor gives you the suction power you need to clean effectively and with ease. The lightweight design makes it easy to push and easy to carry. Comes with HEPA filtration and a no hassle clean release bottom-empty dirt cup so you have minimum interaction with dirt, dust, and debris. Plus, the fold down handle allows you to store it almost anywhere.


Despite the lightweight and compact design, this unit features an extended 25 foot long power cord for added convenience. The brush head is large enough to offer a 13” cleaning path, so you can cover more ground with each pass. The multiple included tools means you can easily clean and reach all of those hard to get spots around the house. The powered hand tool can give you a new weapon against pet hair, and can be used on carpet and upholstery.


A bagless design and a lifetime filter mean that this vacuum will have dramatically lower upkeep costs compared to the average bagged vacuums of the past. A HEPA filter captures 99.9% of household allergens to help improve your indoor air quality, and the adjustable brush roll allows you to easily transition between carpeting and hard floors. The scuff-guard protects your walls and furniture from those inevitable bumps while allowing you to get close enough for a superior clean along edges and along furniture.

The UD40285 is a Residential vacuum designed for use in the Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the UD40285 is set for the Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use.
