We had the previous version of this sweeper and used it at least once a day for 4 years. The new design with the squeegie (sp?) vs. spinning brush for edges was totally ineffective; however, the BIG ISSUE is that after just 2 weeks the handle broke clean off at the base of the dust trap. I will be returning. Don't know if I received a bad apple or if the quality has gone way down. Really bummed as this was a super convenient, light weight "dog-replacement" around the kitchen/nook.
