The Panasonic MC-CG902 comes with only one (1) vacuum bag. Finding the HEPA type vacuum bags in stores is almost impossible. Not even *** carries the type you need for this vacuum! However, after some Internet surfing, I found the following website: www.vacuumsinc.com . Just plug in the following into the Search at the site: Panasonic Micron Filtration Bag Type 5. You will find the bag description at the bottom of the page: "Panasonic C-5 Vacuum Bags (3 pk) $6.99 Panasonic type C5 vacuum bag by MicroLined. Ultrafiltration vacuum bags. Doubles effective bag capacity. 99.7% filtration and Anti-bacterial. 3 bags." I hope this information is helpful!
This is my 3rd vacuum of this model. My first 2 were from Sears and are over 15 years old. They are both still working. It does a great job of picking up pet hair and dirt. I have equal amounts of hard floors and carpeting. I have stairs and this type of vacuum is the best. It is easy to switch from carpet to floors. I have had to make some minor repairs on the older vacuums with parts from the hardware store for about $3. I like having all the tools on the vacuum. I hated my D**** canister which cost more than twice as much as this one and ended up throwing it away after a year.

I have two Sears canister vacs. and this is exactly like them, with the exception of being a lot less in price. Am definitely pleased. Good suction and extra tools are handily stored in the lid. It is all I need!

The Panasonic Burgundy MC Canister vacuum cleaner has a more-than-adequate amount of power. The tools are handily tucked away in the top of the canister. On top of that, such a beautiful piece of cleaning equipment. I thoroughly enjoy using this machine..
Getting the wands apart is a real problem. I can't seem to figure out if the little button is the only problem where it is so hard to push in or if there is a particular way to get the wands apart after you push in the little button. I fight with it every time I use it. Changing the tools makes me crazy because you have to shorten the wand first.
For a two dog household, this was the answer to our prayers. Once I mastered the two section wand attachment, everything worked great. Ease of having the tools inside the cover and the quiet motor give this product an exceptional mark. Great price vs local stores. It took two days to be delivered to my front door with no delivery charges, no time and gas lost on shopping by car . What more can you ask for? Need something? Go to OVERSTOCK.COM FIRST!
Have always loved my kenmore canister vacuums. 2 in 30 years. Wore my last one out during a 9 month remodel. Shopped around and this looks and performs like the other at a fraction of the price. Great value and love the color too! I'll report back in time if there's an issue but so far so good.
This is a good model for having hardwood floors as well as thick rugs. The switch to turn off the brush is included in the on/off switch, so no fiddling to avoid scuffing the wood floors. The pile height adjustor is easy to tap. Accessories are stored inside the canister case, so they don't catch on stuff or fall off the machine. Love the cord retractor! Both my cleaning lady and I figured it out in about 20 seconds. The canister portion is plastic, but it seems durable; and will definitely be lighter carrying down the flight of stairs than a metal case. This model is a Consumer Reports "Best Buy" and I agree. Good value for the price.
This is a very good Vacuum cleaner. It is a reasonably priced vacuum and a great value for the money. It is not intended to be a heavy duty commercial cleaner, but it IS a very good vacuum for moderate cleaning. It is used in our office and it does a great job. (The office is about 4000 sq ft). Lightweight enough to pull easily, good suction for most all cleaning. I would recommend it, and I would definitely buy one for my home if I needed one.
Bought new dining room rugs and wanted to start fresh with a new vacuum. I haven't bought a canister vacuum or a bag vacuum in a long time but I was fed up with cleaning filters and moving heavy furniture so I thought I would give this one a try. This unit is super sturdy and effective. Now I can reach under beds, sofa, chairs, almost everything. Power head is great. Attachments are fine. I'm on a roll.
So as of right now I have only used this vacuum twice but it has really great suction. It does my wood floor beautifully as well as my carpets. For some reason I always avoided buying a canister vacuum before but this solved a lot of problems for me. I couldn't get my stairs well with the upright. The upright head was too large to get under my cabinets in the kitchen. This one not only gets under the cabinets but it is easy to get under the couch, the beds, end tables, etc. It's also a little narrow than my upright was so those other places that my upright couldn't squeeze into, this one does. The only thing I could say that need improvement at this point is the retractable cord. The cord could be a little longer and the retracting mechanism is not the greatest.
Cost savings with superior performance, now that's what I like.

Notwithstanding that it is a vacuum.....I really like this one!! In fact I bought 2, one for a lake house and one for home. I even returned a D-----. It is easy to change the head out, the whole thing swivels around smoothly and is rubberized around the edges so as not to scratch and dent doorways and furniture! The bags are not huge, so buy a lot of them, but so much cleaner than those bag less vacs!
