Let’s take a close look at the best portable vacuum cleaners (dust busters) on the market. There is no shortage of models to choose from but there are very few that we can recommend. Most of them have one shortcoming or another and at best many others simply are not reliable. We found many models that people love but we also found many other people that had problems with the same model. After many hours of research we are pleased to present you with this list of the best dust busters.
