Powerful, lightweight, well balanced and easy to use. The best vacuum I've purchased in many years. I also have a Meile Canister Marin which is an awesome machine but I now prefer the Sebo.
Words don't suffice for how much I appreciate this vacuum every day. This review may seem like a company-sponsored 'management has voted this vac to be best' (ahem...), but it isn't. I am just an 8+ year owner who still couldn't be happier with the cleaning ability. Great suction--still same after 8 years. The engineering and design seem to have been created with simplicity and daily-use in mind. Switching from carpet to hardwood/tile and different heights of carpet, changing from floor vac to hand-held (has a strap to hold on shoulder if you to use it on top of counter tops, etc.), and changing from regular head to flat surface-only head are quick and easy. The unit is light and perfectly balanced. I can change from brush roller to suction-only modes with the touch of a button. The oval body shape swivels to almost flat to glide under tables, beds, etc. Its slim head design gets into corners and right up against walls and vertical surfaces like stairs. Switching from using the heads to using the hose + hose attachments is integrated into the design - no time wasted. When we bought it, the salesperson said this vac is almost indestructible and we now agree since we have 2 dogs and use it daily. Cleaning the brush roller is easy and--as with everything Felix--simple. About every 3 months, I remove and wash the heads, roller/roller housing, and hose with mild soap and warm water. Bags are drop-dead easy to replace and a gauge on top tells me when it is time to change the bag. The double filter system ensures dust does not return to the air. (Last year I ordered a replacement 'skin' filter; but haven't installed it yet because I removed and washed the original and replaced it before the new one arrived and it is working fine.) I recommend ordering an the extra-long hose to extend the 'reach' of the hose-only attachments. The Overstock price for the Felix is great...same as I paid 8 years ago--on sale. My Felix has been every dollar because it continues to clean so very well, is versatile, and the sleek, genius design is engineered to last -- apparently for a lifetime. I'm saving my pennies to order the roller head attachment so I can vacuum my upholstered furniture more thoroughly.
If you have a sebo vacuum you need these bags, no spreading of dust or blowing any thing around the floor. They are in double lined paper very strong, I have never had one blow apart or rip. The price was excellent on the big o.
