I received this vacuum damaged. One important plastic piece was cracked. Overstock customer service is EXCELLENT! When I called with my problem, it was handled very quickly and professionally. Now for the vacuum, I would not recommend this vacuum for the simple fact that it is VERY heavy. It does have a "self propelled drive train" on it, but it is still heavy. It has a high profile, as well, so it is really impossible to get under furniture. The machine itself seems a bit antiquated. I ordered it because it was a great price on a Kirby. I have always heard they are good vacuums, but way out of my price range for a vacuum. I also recently purchased a Shark Professional vacuum. It is hands down a much easier vacuum to operate. Much lighter and tons of suction power. It's a great alternative to this Kirby.

I'm very pleased with this product. The removable handheld piece is great for stairs and furniture. I have two hairy dogs and it picks up the pet hair easily. It has several options for how high the brushes run over the carpet which is great. I agree with other reviews that it is not the easiest vacuum to carry upstairs because of the handle but it's a small price to pay for all of the other features.

Cons: This machine is so heavy nobody wants to vacuum. The mechanism that holds it upright broke right away. The safety piece that lets it run broke. The none breakable hose cracked; as well as some attachments. The replacement parts are very expensive. Only cleaned as well as demo in the beginning. A pain to switch out attachments. I worry about it wrecking my hardwood floors due to its weight. Pros: We have done an enormous amount of remodeling over the 8 years we have owned this machine and the sander attachment is our favorite part. We have flatten stucco walls with it. Most of the dust is vacuumed up as you sand. The motor will last a lifetime. Metal parts are a plus. Belts are inexpensive.

We are really happy with with vacuum. Compared it against our Kirby, which was three times the cost and it picked up more after just being cleaned. Highly recommend Dyson and so do all our friends!!

This vacuum is easy to use. Does not require brute strength . Has great attachments for those hard to reach places. The pieces fit together easily, without having to "bully" anything. Good for the smaller person who is usually "vacuum challanged" - but a strong machine that gets the job done.

This is a very disappointing product from Electrolux. We have a cat and hardwood floors and it does not pick up small stuff like litter or crumbs. The little handheld vac works ok. I would not recommend it.

As comparisons go, it's better than sliced bread. It's the best thing in dirt sucking I've ever used and at a reasonable price.

This vacuum was easy to put together. It gets under the cupboards in the kitchen too. One thing that is preventing me from rating this excellent is that the tubes that connect the handheld portion to the upright come apart while I am vacuuming. When this happens, what ever I vacuum, gets blown out again. I don't notice it right away, which means I have to go back over where I already vacuumed. As long I the tubes are connected, the vacuum works great and doesn't keep in the dog hair smell like bagged vacuums do.

I really like it. It has amazing suction, just as advertised, and it's lightweight. My previous main vacuum was an ancient Kirby which must have weighed 50 pounds. This Dyson is so light and nimble it's easy to get it out and vacuum every time the dog sheds, which is all the time. It's a little baffling to interpret the pictures in lieu of words in the instructions for the attachments, but I'm getting used to it.

Works great. Third one we have purchased. We had one for our house and tried other vacuums for our small residential care home. Went through 2 vacuums and with mediocre results. decided our Kirby worked great at home why not our care home. Has been working great ever since. Thanks O.co!

Love it! Light weight and easy to maneuver. Awesome suction. After battling a Kirby for 25 years, this vacuum is a treat.

We'll buy from Overstock.com again. The Kirby, to date, runs very well and works like a new one. No complaints. Very good price!

Great vacuum cleaner. Kirby quality within my budget price range. Works perfectly. More accessories than I will ever use. I am very happy with this refurbished (like new) vacuum. The motorized assist in pushing the heavy machine around is wonderful.

This is an awesome vacum. Now just to let you know my last vaccum was a kirby sentria which i hated. This is so easy to put together. I love that it glides when on. It really pushes itself and is light weight. The attachments are close by and are easy to use. I feel like the suction is just as good as my kirby. I love the bagless idea. You see what you vaccum up and how much. My only complaint is that the handle seems to carry all the weight when vaccuming. I wish the weight of the vaccum was evenly distributed. Also wish the power button was higher up by the handle otherwise it's great!

Awesome!! I really love this vacuum. It's hard to believe that it is not a completely new vacuum.

My folks had a Generation 3 they bought 20+ years ago that we finally threw out last year. I kick myself a bit for not discovering sooner that you can send the old ones back to the factory to be reconditioned for a few hundred dollars. Buying it here, I did not have to go through the door-to-door home-sale experience and the price is certainly less than most people claim to have paid buying them new. Just like the one my parents bought, this is mostly made of metal. These are big, solid, and expensive by comparison with other vacuum cleaners. Assembly took ~5 minutes with a screwdriver to tighten the hook that the power cord loops over and everything else snapped together. I read one review that suggested there are two versions of Sentria which are identical, except for the bag they use. The one I received uses the 'F' bags. I have someone come help clean house, so I use it occasionally - it did not receive the cat's seal of approval. :-) It sounds just like the old one and works well. Power assist makes the weight not an issue when on flat floors (versus the stairs). This came with all the same attachments as the one my folks had, except for the sander and floor shampooer. (It's not advertised as coming with these in the description). So far, it's running well - purchased the extended warranty and have not used that. If it's like the old one (and sure seems to be so far) I won't need to.

Most hope chests are made of wood, and many are made from cedar, as this wood naturally offers some protection to its contents against moths and other insects. If you take good care of a hope chest, it can last for generations. An important part of this care is cleaning. Cleaning a hope chest is much like cleaning other types of wood furnishings, including dressers. You should avoid soaking the wood and should, whenever possible, use products specified for use on wood (and safe for the wood's finish).
Cats love having their own special place to sleep, play, and observe the comings and goings of the people around them. If that place is a cat tree with a high perch, a cozy hole, and a toy or two, so much the better. The distinctive design of cat furniture can make it somewhat difficult to clean. Still, it is important to keep your cat happy and healthy by keeping his cat supplies as clean as possible.
