Customer reviewsGreat suction. Doesn t blow dirt around. Lightweight.
We have had this vacuum for several months now. It was our pick because it is lightweight, which is a plus due to health issues and not being able to lift heavy items. This is definitely a commercial vacuum. It vacuums up massive amounts of dog hair with ease. I can see where there was dust on mats and then it is gone after vacuuming. You do have to be careful, as the suction is so strong it will actually suck up small mats. Many vacuums have a side or back vent to blow out exhaust air . That would always send the dog hair flying. This vacuum does not do that. In fact, if it gets within a couple inches of any dog hair it sucks it right in along the path it is going. Very strong suction. We have not had to replace the dirt capture bag, yet, but will probably need to soon. It is a large bag and appears to hold a lot. We vacuum a minimum of twice a week, since we have two dogs, and haven t had an issue with it getting clogged or overly full. The cord is long. We have 1400 square foot home, and if we plug the cord in somewhere in the middle of the house, we can vacuum most of the house without changing plugs. We are very pleased with this vacuum cleaner. No, it doesn t have attachments, but we have a shop vac and a hand held to take care of those needs. We were looking for a no frills vacuum and this one fit the bill perfectly. We are very happy with it. Note It is loud, but we guess that is due to the strong motor.
