Review of Black & Decker vacuums

Of course, Black & Decker refers to the leaders among manufacturers of power tools and household appliances. This company was founded in 1910. Originally, it was a small mechanical workshop in Baltimore.

The invention of a hand-held electric drill was the first big success of the enterprise. In the future, this company patented many new inventions in the field of portable electric tools.

Well-known trademark of this brand was registered in 1949.

Today, Black & Decker designs and manufactures some of the best vacuums, especially in segment of portable models. Of course, the company regularly extends its range. For example, in 2017 Black & Decker has offered the innovative HSVJ520JMPA07 SMARTECH PET 2-in-1 Cordless Hand / Stick Vacuum model.

Of course, relatively low price, good design and high innovative level provides high popularity of this model among consumers.

The world’s first cordless vacuum with the name Dustbuster was developed by the company in 1979. Later, SMARTECH series continued this direction. Moreover, SMARTECH models have a very high level of versatility due to the presence of several configurations. For example, this vacuum can be used as a traditional Cordless Upright Vacuum or Cordless Hand Vacuum.

In this way, the user can easily select the optimal cleaning mode.
