Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I recieved my GV-8 vacuum about 2 months ago. It is the perfect vacuum for cleaning up remodeling dust. Especially hard wood floors, window sills, wood mouldings. We installed new doors and windows in an older home. After picking up the big trash, the GV-8 made short work of cleaning all the ledges, miter joints, and floors. Being a backpack unit made it quick and portable. And no loss of power with this unit. It is more powerful than my larger wheeled clumsy units. I was ready for the white glove inspection and proud to leave the worksite so spotless. Great product.

To be honest, I did not purchase this vacuum to be used as such. I purchased it for a costume idea. However, while I may not be using it for the vacuum purpose, I can still comment on it's weight and "wear" on the body. This product is not very heavy and can be comfortably worn for a few hours, plenty of time for an actual clean up job. As an added feature to help with this, the vacuum actually has a belt that goes about your waist with Velcro to help keep the full weight off your shoulders and provide extra support.
This same belt has a few slots to potentially hold some tools as well, such as pliers or screw driver (useful if you need to unscrew an access panel or such to clean inside something.)
Again, I am not using it as a standard vacuum, but I can say that it does sit comfortable and I would recommend this to someone who is interested in a back pack vacuum and doesn't want something overbearing.
Firstly, the cord is probably about 18 inches. It fits well and has great suction. I do feel some strain on the back when using, so you need to be in good shape to use. The size is good for me, I am only 5'2" and really like using it.

I read that the cord is only 3 feet long?! Do you mean the HOSE is 3 feet, because otherwise how could walk around the house and vacuum with a power cord that is only 3 feet long?catnutti on Feb 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I have no idea what this person is saying because I saw nothing that was only 3 feet long by way of a cord or hose.alisoninsonoma2014 on Feb 13, 2014
Hello catnutti, This vac has a 25 foot cord. The hose attachment is 7 ft., and the telescoping metal wand extends to nearly four feet. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 20, 2014
Thank you for contacting us rosetta25. Yes this does work good on pet hair. It has lots of power which is good for vacuuming pet hair.
You should also consider the Prolux Stealth at
because it has the electric power nozzle which will work a little better on pet hair.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
