A powerful 780-watt motor and fourteen accessories allow this hand vacuum to tackle stairs, floors, molding, upholstery, and other cleaning jobs in the house, garage, car, or RV. Two extensions for the hand vacuum are possible: a flexible hose for upholstery and inflation; and a 28-inch wand comprised of up to three plastic press-fit tube sections. Devices that fit the wand include the floor head, crevice tool, and molding brush. Three adaptors allow the vacuum to inflate rafts, air mattresses, and beach balls, while the blower function clears leaves from patios and crumbs from a kids party. Two of the most-used accessories--the crevice tool and brush tool--conveniently store on board the vacuum. A handy drawstring bag keeps the various accessories from getting lost, and the 20-foot power cord lets the vacuum easily reach all corners of a room. A Clean Filter indicator lets you know when the 13-ounce capacity dirt bowl needs to be emptied, a procedure as simple as pushing a button and shaking out the contents. Conveniently compact, the hand vacuum measures 11-1/2 by 4-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, and is covered by a two-year warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri
The possibilities are endless with Black & Decker's new DirtBuster Hand Vac. With its 14 accessories, and powerful 6.5 amp motor, there is virtually no place in your house that the compact DirtBuster Hand Vac can¿t clean. Besides its vacuuming versatility, the DirtBuster Hand Vac is also a powerful blower for clearing away dirt and debris from porches and patios, and a high-velocity inflator for inflating air mattress, children¿s pools and more. The DirtBuster Hand Vac cleans carpeted, wood, tile and linoleum surfaces, stairs, upholstery, car interiors and hard-to-reach areas such as draperies, baseboards, and overhead to clean crown molding and ceiling fans. The Hand Vac's 14 accessories attach in a variety of combinations for endless vacuuming possibilities. Several accessories attach to create a 5-foot extension allowing you to stand or reach overhead while vacuuming. An 8-inch wide vacuum head attaches to the 5-foot extension to clean wide surface areas quickly. The DirtBuster Hand Vac's bag-less Triple Action Filter System captures both large and small particles. The three-stage filter deflects dirt and debris off of a primary filter screen into the dirt bowl and then captures fine dust in a second and third pleated filter. A clog filter indicator shows you when you need to empty the bowl or clean or replace the filter. The DirtBuster Hand Vac becomes a blower and inflator by directing the vacuum's airflow. As a blower the DirtBuster clears away dirt, dust and debris from workshops, garages or hard surfaces. As an inflator, the DirtBuster inflates a full-size air mattress in under a minute.
