This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. While traditional Dustbusters are undoubtedly convenient, they can sometimes struggle in tight corners and other cramped spaces. In an attempt to solve this problem, Black+Decker released these pivot vacuums, each of which has a nozzle that can be turned to a variety of angles to help you clean hard-to-reach places. They're perfect for using on small messes in your car or kitchen. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

2. BDH1600PL Lithium

1. BDH2000PL Max

Editor's Notes

March 26, 2019:

The BDH2000PL Max is the best model on this list for in-home use, thanks to its wide nozzle and mountable storage station. It's perfect for quick cleanups, making it a smart choice for parents or just anyone who's klutzy before that first cup of coffee in the morning. The BDH1200PVAV Automotive is the smartest choice for keeping in your car (naturally), as it's incredibly small, which helps it get under seats and around doors. Its cord is both a blessing and a curse, as it can get in your way, but also eliminates the need to worry about keeping it charged.

Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
