First of all, the name of the vacuum is Mighty Mite, not Mighty Mike! A "mite" is a small object. That is the whole point. It is a small vacuum, but it is "mighty" powerful. Let's get the name of the product correct! Yes, it definitely lives up to its correct name. Easy to carry around with lots of vacuum power. We use it to vacuum all the places that you can't get with a normal floor vacuum.
