***11.15.2017*** Adding to review - so I purchased this vacuum in February and the motor burned up over the weekend. I’m completely shocked. I don’t live in a messy house where I’m doing anything extrenuous with a vacuum. My husband and I live alone and do cleaning every Saturday. In all of our years of marriage we’ve always replaced vacuums before them dying. Not this time. The life span of this was very short lived. I cannot say enough nice things about this product. I had an older (3) Hoover vacuum and I assumed it was doing a decent job, that it is until I purchased this vacuum. My floors have never been so clean. It immediately picked up so many dust bunnies that I never knew existing. Our carpet is only 2nyears old and I would not believe what the old vac was missing. Needless to say, I halve been going vacuum crazy around the house. I love this and if and when it has' seen better days, I will replace with the same model. I do have a dog, but he is a non-shedding hypoallergenic dog. So I don't really much about go hair, but everything else it pick up is phenomenal. You cannot go wrong with this purchase.
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.
