Couldn't be happier
I love love love my pivot vac! I use it daily...kitchen crumbs, hair on the bathroom floor, around the kitty litter, pet hair on the couch, throw rug vacuuming, etc.

I used WD-40 on the on & off switch which was very hard to move w/thumb & any other finger for that matter.
I can now move the on & off switch w/ease.
I sat down w/the manual instructions & "studied" on how to remove the filter for that "extra" cleaning. Removing the filer by turning clockwise was a little hard. I DID NOT use WD-40 because I am only going to be doing that "extra" cleaning every 4 months or so.
Anywho, I washed the filter under the faucet w/soap. Let it drain/dry over night. The next morning the filter was completely dry. I also used damp paper towels to clean the dirt bowl & the exterior of the hand vac.
Overall, a complete success.

Great Portable Hand Vac
Been using this hand vac for a few weeks now. Works as advertised. Maybe even better!!!!
The suction power is fantastic.
I mainly purchased this to clean up behind my cat tracking litter around litter box.
When I first got the hand vac, the 1st thing I did (after charging for 24+ hrs) was to clean out my car. I wanted to see how long the battery lasts. The cleaning lasted approximately 45 minutes as well as the battery before the hand vac started to lose suction.
The built in brush is a very nice feature.
When NOT in use, I keep the hand vac connected to the charger so when I do need to use it, it will always have a FULL charge.
The reason why I gave "quality" 4 stars is this......
#1 - the on & off switch is a little hard to move w/just one finger (thumb). Haven't tried this yet but, I believe a little WD-40 should solve that issue.
#2 - I haven't figured out yet how to remove the filters for that "extra" cleaning even after reading the manual. I will CALL the toll free manufacturer # to get walk through instructions when the time comes.
WD-40 may need to come to the rescue there too. ;)

A little heavy, but well built and very powerful. Will last a long time. Ordered it from Bed Bath & Beyond and had it shipped and arrived very fast good service. I would also recommend calling the store and if they do not have it at the store they will find one for you and ship it right to you..

Works Great and is Lightweight.
I am very happy with this purchase. They did not have it in the store, but the shipping from ordering it through the store was very fast.

Black&Decker Pivot Vac.
Unit works as described and handles well. However, I do not feel the battery holds the charge long enough. Even after a long charging time, it doesn't seem to help the performance. Generally too much of a hassel to try and return it as with most products purchase in todays stores.
