I was looking for a well built vacuum cleaner that has a roller brush for area rugs that also works on hardwood floors. This vacuum does both and does a great job. The 25' self winding cord is just one of the really nice side benefits of owning and using this vacuum. The head is flexible and can get under our sofa and most of our living room, dining room and kitchen chairs. It is quiet to use. Easy to carry around handle if needed. The canister rolls freely behind as you vacuum. I have used all of the tools and have not been disappointed. With some vacuums you have to repeat the same pattern over the same area to get it clean but this vacuum does it with one sweep. I have changed the bag once-- not hard to do. I assembled the machine when it came. So,e have said it was a little difficult. Take your time and think a bit European efficiency and you won't have a problem. Our eldest came home for a visit and used it and said it was a great machine and liked the swiveling head and the fact that it was quiet. Overall just really happy and satisfied with this machine.
The first vacuum i received had a broken piece right out of the box. Overstock quickly sent me a new one but it's a pain to have to repack and mail back a vacuum cleaner. I've use the new one several times. It's just ok- it doesn't pick up anything that is not in the center of it's path. It's fairly easy to maneuver, and I had no problem with the tools vacuuming my furniture but the suction seems uneven. The large hose sometimes comes off and that of course makes the suction stop. Easy to fix but annoying and it shouldn't happen. Easy to empty the canister. Overall, there are some things I like but I wouldn't buy another one.
