I received the vacuum in a large box. Each part was bubble wrapped and it was not in it's original box. The vacuum had a few scratches that showed on the red exterior. I thought that it would get scratched up a little after use, so I accepted the damaged vacuum because I needed to get my house cleaned up before I had company coming. The package came with vacuum cleaner bags that were all stuffed into the box. While the bags looked new, they were waded up and did not come in a clean neat package. I am a little worried that I will not be able to reorder the HEPA bags because I could not find any into on where to order them in the vacuum directions. The directions were a poor quality photocopy of the manufacture's directions that contained no information on where to order the HEPA bags. The vacuum can be used without the bags but it would be too messy to use the vacuum without them. The hose fell off where it is attached to the vacuum and it happened every time after I got the vacuum adjusted on my back. I would have to take the backpack off, reattach the hose and put it back on. After the hose came undone for the fifth time, I realized that it needed to be glued back in place and is defective. I had to tape the hose on to get my house cleaned.

What a great hose cover. Not only does this cover keep your furniture from getting banged up but it looks good too!!! I would recommend this to a friend. I think that the price is great especially compared to others. The only downfall is that the velcro does tend to loosen I had to use the white ties to tie the cover to the hose handgle no biggie. I really do like this product.

I received two of these units and both were dented. Not sure the manufacturer is checking the packing process.

We have several commercial properties for which we provide maintenance and janitorial services. The GV Vacuum is just the right piece of equipment we were looking for. It has all the power and suction we need. With a heavy 50' electrical cord, it gives us the mobility and portability we need to efficiently get the job done. The tools work well and provide the flexibility needed. By our limited use and inspection at this time, it appears to be well constructed and we anticipate good and long service from the GV Vacuum. Perhaps, the only drawback is for the operator to remember he/she is wearing a decent-sized piece of equipment on his/her back in tight spaces.

We have two Kenmore canister vacs at our main house, which are great workhorses on any floor surface. I had hoped this vac would be similar, but at less expense for our weekend cabin. It does not do well on installed carpeted flooring, and it's completely useless on lightweight area rugs. The power brush stops spinning at the slightest resistance from a rug or thick carpet; after that, it just pulls up light dirt with limited suction. It does do well on bare floors, hard surfaces, and tiling. It's also a little loud compared to our heavy duty canister vans. I guess it's worth it to spend closer to $300 on a good vac.

I have an expensive upright vacuum, but the head is too large to get into small spaces and I have not been able to order a smaller head because they don't make them for that unit. I really like the small canister because: the main head is smaller and much better for floors without carpets; it has plenty of "suck" to get dog hairs and other light, small items; it's not heavy to carry around or pull; the cord recedes into the vacuum at a touch; it can be turned on with one's foot.

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.

The GV 6 quart vacuum has all the capabilities as a larger vacuum. The suction capacity is great the light weight of it make it easy to handle and carry. All attachment are great quality for what I need them for. I would recommend and have already told a few subcontractors about this vacuum. The price point for this vacuum is great. Its great for commercial and home cleaning. get you one today.

I really like the suction on this vac and the wide waist band with velcro. The turbo head does a great job on low pile carpets. Also like that lefties or righties can use the same vac. The floor head only has a small opening but manages to pick up most dirt. The bristles do get full of stuff though. Should have a short cord with plug to plug into an extension cord instead of long cord hard wired.

I highly recommend this hose sock for your central vacuum hose. It is very easy to place over the hose and it definitely helps protect our base boards and furniture from the hose, while also protecting the hose itself. It's also a fabulous deal at this price! The guy who installed our central vacuum offered a hose sock at $45 it is was a horribly ugly print from the 1980's. This hose sock is very simple with an understated design.

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.

Great for protecting walls, corners, and floors from scratches while hauling around central vac hose.

This product was somewhat of a disappointment. The first vacuum I received was broken, wouldn't turn on. Though O.S. Customer service was friendly and helpful, I was a little frusterated that they could not expedite the shipping on the second vacuum since I received the first one broken, but that was not an option. I received the second vacuum, it was average, I wouldn't buy another one and I wasn't overly impressed. It parts including the hoses are all made of plastic, the suction is average, not great. It works ok but that's it...its just ok, I certainly don't feel I got my money's worth.

We run a bed and breakfast and when cleaning the cabins, we have to hike or take the quad. Having the vacuum on your back is wonderful. The hose attachment is long and the extending metal part is perfect for small corners and easy to adjust when needing to reach up high. Our accommodations are small so having the vacuum on your back is great for mobility. The suction is powerful and this continues after months of use in dusty area. The vacuum we used in the house has been parked. The house is large and so for the opposite reason of the cabins, having the back pack is great when vacuuming the house because your dragging along the canister which falls off of the stairs and catches on just about everything. No more dented furniture, no more having to lift the canister along the way. The vacuum head is light and this is awesome for stairs, the best ever when you have lots of stairs. Great for tile and hardwood, could use a better rotating head for carpets, but the suction is strong, hasn't been a problem.

Great little vac ,space saving - great for for my small space, has adjustable settings for suction which make it great for light dusting on the low setting. I am completely satisfied with this vac.

I did some research. All the reviews said that this vac had great suction, worked well, and for the price is a great value. It really does clean my carpets well with the revolving brush attached, and switching to the hard surface head it works wonderfully on our hardwood floors. It actually makes vacuuming fun. There are other tools for small jobs and crevices. It's easy to roll and lift and is small and light enough to store anywhere. I think it does its job very well. It feels well built. I have used this vac for two months and it is very nice for this price! I am picky about my cleaning and I also really like the looks of this vacuum. Cons: The cord retractor really doesn't work very well...but I store it in my bedroom closet so I just loop up the cord and the little vac doesn't take up much room. It's not a deal breaker.

Great product - this is for a 30' hose, in a previous review it was stated this will fit a 35' hose - it will not

I love this little backpack. The hose needs to be stronger I have to replace it, the hose is a thin plastic and tore. This Vacuum is used for my business and is very heavy duty it sucks up just about everything it is way. The hose needs to be a solid hard plastic and it would be perfect I was going to purchase 4 for my business but now I will look for one with a stronger hose.

Bought this item for a 35' house-vac house, although the product is listed for a 30'; works just fine. Overall the product is constructed fairly well, a few stitches were already pulling out when pulled out of the box, but it is for a vacuum hose after all, I think we can live with it. In the end, I would purchase it again.
