I bought mine over 20 years ago and it still works great! The suction is awesome and the shampoo attachment cleans very good. The belts hold up very well, but they need changing a couple of times a year, but are pretty inexpensive. The bags do well, but you can tell a progressive loss in suction when they are about half full. If you have pets with a lot of hair, you will need to manually clean the beater brush pretty often. It can be a chore taking it out of the head, but it does come out and clean up well. Our church needed a new vacuum a couple of years ago and I found a used one at a vacuum store for $100. Bought it and it works good. The price here for a refurbished one is a good deal though. I would check them out whenever I might want to get a new one. The "old boy" is still running like a champ though!
