I’m always on the lookout for a good deal and the Dirt Devil Gator BD1075 is a great buy, just check out these features.
It comes with a brush roller attachment and a retractable crevice tool designed to clean stains on upholstery, carpet and hard floors.
Although the slit tool is on the short side, so it won’t reach deep into the slits.
Having a brush roll means you can use it to clean pet hair from stairs and upholstery.
One bonus you will get from this product is the long 3 year warranty, for a product under $50 this is a very good deal.
Other products of similar price range may only give you one year warranty.
- The motorized brush allows pet hair to be removed on carpeted stairs as well as upholstery
- Energy star rated battery means more power saving
- easy to empty
- 3 years long warranty
- Cheap at just under $50
- It takes a long time to ship
- The crevice tool has a very small hole
- a little heavy
- The opening is a bit tight
- Small dirt capacity – fills up very quickly
What do you expect from Dirt Devil BD10175 18-Volt Portable Wireless?
This portable device is powered by an 18V NiCd battery which needs to be charged for 24 hours, so you basically need to leave this connector in the charger if it is used every day.
The charger is not wall mountable which was a disappointment for some consumers but it’s really not a big deal for a device as small as this but it is personal.
- 18 volt nickel cadmium battery
- 2-1/4″ wide motorized brush roller attachment
- pull slit tool
- Charger included but not wall mountable
- Energy star rated
- 3 years warranty
Attachments and accessories
Contains 2 attachments – crevice remover plus motorized brush.

According to the Dirt Devil website, a full charge takes about 24 hours, like I said earlier, leave this plugged in if you use it at least once a day.
Keep in mind that the battery is not removable, so if it fails before the warranty expires, contact Dirt Devil and ask for a replacement.
To remove the filter, you will need to lift the main nozzle to access the filter.
There are two types of filters – mesh and cloth filters. Both are washable.
Here is a picture of the mesh filter behind the canvas filter for your reference.
the show length
There is not much feedback on this. Someone said it lasted for 20 minutes before losing power. Others said he only ran for 5 minutes.
Dirt Devil doesn’t have any official run times listed on their site.
It comes with a 3-year limited warranty on the entire unit.
bare floor performance
This would be great for small debris like pet litter, dust, and pet hair on this surface but since the opening is on the small side, it can’t accommodate larger bits.
The presence of the brush makes this useful on carpets but only on low pile carpets, it just doesn’t have enough power to handle medium to thick carpets.
This can be useful on carpeted stairs where a stick or upright is difficult to use.
Upholstery and pet hair
Again, the presence of this brush makes it usable on upholstery, especially pet hair.

Just over a hundred people left a comment and many were pet owners who were satisfied with its abilities to remove pet hair from carpets and upholstery, although one stated that due to the narrow opening pet hair residue might be left hanging on the spout when turned off Vacuum cleaner.
Consumers say the suction is good and the runtime is very convenient but they don’t say exactly how long.
The brush roll is great on upholstery for cleaning pet hair. But some people complained about the small crater.
Negative reviews indicate that this vacuum had a short time and poor suction. The crevice tool tends to slide backwards if you apply too much pressure.
Reviews from other sites
Over 20 people left a review, and like on Amazon, many were pet owners who were satisfied with how they helped deal with stubborn pet hair.
Consumers say the suction was pretty decent and they were able to use it for up to 30 minutes plus it’s cheap which makes it a good buy.
Negative reviews say this didn’t have much suction and the runtime was short.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this portable device from Amazon for less than $55 and it will be eligible for free two-day shipping if you join Prime.
Extended warranties are also available for up to 3 years if you want that extra peace of mind.
This is another budget alternative for price-conscious shoppers looking for a cordless pet hair vacuum cleaner.
Don’t expect heavy-duty performance because it is what it is – a spot cleaner that doesn’t hold much dirt and won’t pick up big bits of dirt.
Pet owners will benefit from this because of the brush, as it will help them brush pet hair on upholstery and stairs.
The crevice tool helps somewhat on the edges. But it’s on the short side.
The small nozzle limits how much dirt it can clean.
But the good news is that it’s quite affordable, just under $50. And it comes with a 3-year warranty, so as long as it’s valid within the warranty period, you’ll get a bargain.
