Researched all the new vacuum cleaners out there with all the plastic parts. Decided to go with the old reliable Kirby. I had owned this version before. (The ex kept the latest model). All the parts were nice and extra long hose. The 4-star rating is because the air flow seems weaker than I remembered it. Or maybe I just got used to the latest Kirby generation. Refurbished is way more affordable too!
I bought this vacuum set over 3 months ago and I absolutely love it! This is my first Kirby purchase, and order from overstock. When I received the order, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with both how well the item was packaged and how pristine the re-furbished product was. The product looked brand new! It was very easy to assemble. I actually referenced to a youtube video to help facilitate the assembly and use of the product *. The power of this vacuum is incredible and does a phenomenal job just as well as my sister's Sentria model. It felt, looked and performed like a brand new vacuum cleaner. My carpeting looks new and revived every time I use it. My home now constantly looks and feels clean. I noticed the air feeling cleaner as a result of the HEPA. I have used pretty much all the attachments I particularly love the 13 foot hose attachment, the pet tool ( which I use on my furniture). On the pet tool I learned to be aware to keep the rotary brush flat against the object you are vacuuming so the suction can work at its fullest (also remember to cover all the holes on the suction control grip completely by using the sliding valve located on top of the handle of the hose). I love the style and the color! I appreciate the extra HEPA bags and the belts. Thanks for the Incredible product and wonderful service! This product is definitely a keeper and will continue to use it for years to come. :)
If you buy this be warned that Overstock will hound you until you either die or close out your email account to rate it. It's a good vacuum cleaner and it does as it's sold as, which is all I ask.
I bought this after doing research because my highly rated Hoover upright that I used in the basement family room and Kenmore canister that I lugged around the rest of the house weren't working and I was expecting weekend visitors soon. The Shark is two vacuums in one- a swivel upright with beater option for rugs and has a roll around base and detachable canister. I have oriental and shag rugs throughout the house on hardwood floors. There's an attachment that makes it easy to switch back and forth between rugs and floors without turning the vacuum off. I have arthritis, herniated discs, and asthma. I was skeptical because it's bagless and was concerned debris would fly around when being emptied- this has not been a problem. The vacuum cleaner is not heavy nor did it even come close to tipping over. I am able to detach the canister easily to vacuum steps and walk around using the attachments. The suction is POWERFUL and easily adjustable. I couldn't believe all the dirt and cat hair it picked up on rugs that my other vacuum cleaners indicated were "clean". I highly recommended this vacuum cleaner and suggest reading the instructions. There's a lot going with this vacuum!!!
