This vacuum has great suction.Cleaned up hair and other small debris from the carpet effectively-even the carpet fur that my old bissell (with bag) vaccum didn't pick up . It is definitely lightweight but does feel a little heavy than expected when vacuuming the carpets. The suction release helps a bit but not much. I am not sure if this would be appropriate for elderly people or pregnant women but it is relatively lightweight. Works well on bare floors as well. I am not sure if it would be convenient for big homes.Like other reviewers previously said, the dust cup does get filled up quickly. So you may have to empty it after doing each room. This is the first time I tried it. Maybe after multiple uses the dust cup might not fill up so because the carpet is not that messy any more. I would recommend wearing old clothing when emptying the dust cup because the dust may get on your clothes but that is easy to brush away. I have a two bedroom spacious apartment and I had to empty the dust cup three times. I have only used this vacuum once but was very satisfied that is worked like a new one even though it is refurbished. It has some cosmetic errors ( only a few scratches otherwise looks new) but as long as it cleans well I am more than happy but it does have a nice stylish look to it. My old Bissell vacuum lasted well for a little more than 4 years . I hope this would last longer. I got it at a good price of ~ $xxx. I would have given it 5 stars but I don't know how long it will last. Otherwise, it is very good product and I would recommend it to others.
