I purchased this for my daughter because she has pets and carpeted stairs. It is lightweight so her kids can use it and has powerful suction so it gets up the pet hair easily as well as heavy stuff. Easy to handle and gets in the corners. Perfect for stairs and upholstery. I like that it has a cord instead of battery and that it is bagless and easy to empty.
The belt came off and it started smoking the first time I used it. Contacted Overstock who wouldn't let me return since it had been over 8 days. I didn't have time to open it and clean the day it arrived. I have two toddlers time to do things whenever isn't something I have. I had hoped to like this. And I have been happy with Overstock's customer service in the past but not this time. I'd suggest ordering an appliance like this directly from the manufacturer so if something goes wrong you won't get stuck in a situation like mine.
this is a little heavy, and it over heats quickly. When it overheats it doesn't come back on for about 45 minutes, also the suction from the hose isn't as great as when using the main part. But it was relatively cost effective for what I needed it for.
Love this handheld bagless vacuum. It has very strong suction which I need for my throw rugs. It is wonderful on carpeted steps. I bought one for myself and loved it so much that I bought one for my daughter and one for my son. It will make for easier house cleaning. Love it and they do too.
I bought this to vacuum my stairs and it surpassed what I expected. The suction is great and so much easier than trying to hold my big vacuum cleaner and back down the stairs while trying to clean each stair. I highly recommed this for anyone with a staircase.
I have 3 dogs and a bird. The dogs leave "tumbleweeds" all over my floors and the bird has a daily tantrum with her bird seed. The is excellent for cleaning those up without hauling the big heavy vacuum up and down stairs. I love that is bag less too. No buying bags for the handheld. Just empty the cup and continue!
