Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums
Raise your height adjust, and replace your belt. This will fix 99% of the problems with vacuums being hard to push.
Your height should only be as low as it takes to get your brushes to just make contact with your carpet. Peoples' natural inclination is to slam the vacuum as low as possible to deep clean the carpet, but in reality it's restricting your airflow and is cleaning less effectively, as well as making it harder to push.
A properly designed vacuum should be easy to push any time there's a new belt on. If these two solutions don't make it any easier, make sure your wheels are spinning free on the bottom.
