This is a great vacume, I was so impressed the first time I used it, has great suction power, I had a kirby for many years and gave it to my daughter when I moved, I bought a couple of cheaper vacumes in between this Kirby and decided they were junk and never again would I waste my money on a vacume made in China, this vacume is made it the USA and built to last forever, It also comes with a 5 yr. warranty so dont buy the warranty they offer, I did and they told me later that they credited my account as this already comes with a 5 yr warranty...there are attachments also that are great for all areas in your home, I also noticed a cheaper Kirby but I chose to go with this one just because of the previous review and that it was made in the USA...thanks again Overstock this came well packaged and very quick.....I absolutely love it very easy to use and great power!!!!
Love the machine. The first time I used it I was surprised how much dirt our old machine had left behind. The suction is powerfull. The self propelled option works great and makes it easy to vaccum. This machine will last a long time. It is well made - made to last!

I don't believe I have ever written a review but it has been over 4 years now and I still love my Kirby. I got an in-home demo 8 years ago. I was sold on the product but not sales girl she was insulting and threatening. (I even *69 the phone number after she left to complain to her boss they were very apologetic and offered me a reduced price model still out of my price range.) The refurbished one I did buy with a warrantee and all bells and whistles its great every time I use it. Whenever anyone is discussing replacing there vac I just say Kirby, you cant sway me. I grew up with the "E" kind, and a lot swear by them. I say that is fine if you want to do the job twice. I call it the monster.

I like the Kirby vacuums. Seems to be the best on the market. The refurbished one I purchased works great. The only problem was that there was a small screw missing that controls the drive system. I put one in where it was missing and it works just fine. If I ever need another Kirby, I will probably buy one that is brand new. But that won't be for another ten years or so. This is the third Kirby we have owned in the last 22 years. They are just great.
This $*** vacuum has spent more time in the closet than doing its job. The first belt lasted 3 weeks. The spare given lasted even less time. Look further. This sweeper is just not worth the money. I had a salesman come in and demonstrate the *. I seriously did not think there was a more reliable brand. HA! I would guess whatever is chewing up the belts is the reason this sweeper was refurbished. Shame Overstock! I thought YOU were better than this....
