Great vacuum for a great price

I love this vacuum! It is one of the best purchases I've ever made. PROS: * Picks up so much hidden dirt in our thick carpet, it scared us the first time we looked in the canister! * For how much power it has, it is actually very quiet - quieter than our old 10 amp vacuum. * Turns on a dime and gets into nooks and crannies really well - we don't have to use the hand tools on every single wall edge. * The attachment with moving brushes cleans stares amazingly well. * No filters or bags to buy - this is a huge plus as we could never find a replacement filter for our old vacuum. * The cord is very long and it retracts into the vacuum. Wow. I find wrapping up long cords so annoying. Having this cord self retract is actually kind of fun (ok, so I'm easily amused!) * The color is trendy. * It is fairly lightweight. * I like that you can adjust the height for different carpet lengths. I know that this isn't a groundbreaking feature, but not all vacuums have it and it makes a big difference. CONS: * While it is comparatively lightweight, people that have a hard time lifting may find it a little heavy. * Other reviews complain that pet hair can get stuck in the canister, and that at times you may have to reach in slightly with two fingers to pull the hairs out. To me, this is only a minor annoyance. With any bagless vacuum, there will usually be some occasional contact with the materials that you you are cleaning off of your carpets. OVERALL: This is a great vacuum for the price. If this is within your price range, you should go for it.

UPDATE: 2 years later, and this vacuum is still amazing. Juan’s list of pros is spot on.

However good this vacuum is for the price, it still isn’t perfect. Here are some new Cons to add to my list.
CONS:
*The belt slips now and then. That being said, the belt has not yet snapped. The belt on my mother-in-laws Oreck . . . now that’s another story. The belt reattaches fairly easily for me (with no tools needed, as Juan mentioned) but I can imagine a person in a weakened state (elderly, perhaps) would maybe have a little trouble stretching it back on.
*The canister has to be changed quite frequently. This is a Pro and a Con, in a way. It’s a Pro, because the vacuum picks up dirt and hair so efficiently, that you can feel pretty confident about the cleanliness of the floor. It’s a Con, because changing the canister every few minutes can be a little irritating at times. I’m guessing that there was some design reason for the canister being a little on the small side - my guess is that a bigger one would probably decrease suction power, thereby requiring a more powerful engine, which would, in turn, increase the price. Overall, this is a small Con.

  • About a year ago, I noticed that the suction decreased dramatically. After some probing around, I realized the culprit; a clog in the internal chamber. Luckily, this was not very hard to fix. I unscrewed the screws on the backplate, removed the pieces that hold the internal hoses in place, and was eventually able to find the clog. Once unclogged, the vacuum was back to it’s old self. Less ambitious people would probably just buy a new vacuum, but I really like it (and I’m really cheap) so to me this is not that big of a deal.
    Which leads me to a new Pro.
    PRO:
  • This vacuum is actually quite easy to self-service. All of the screws that I found were the same size. Taking it apart and putting it back together was quite intuitive and simple. I’m not a super-mechanical guy, yet I was able to figure it out with relative ease. Even the filter is easy - wash it, dry it, reinsert.

Two years later, I still really love this vacuum. I’m sure there are nicer ones, but I doubt there are many at this price range. I still stand by my earlier assertion - this has been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

Update: Nearly five years later, and it’s still doing great. In my last update, I mentioned that the belt started slipping. Someone eventually pointed out that this slippage meant that the belt needed to replaced. I replaced it, and not only was the slipping problem drastically improved, but I also noticed increased brush power. The part is Belt #38528033 (you can also find the belt number on the very bottom of the vacuum.)
NOTE: I’ve had some people comment about a misspelling. That wasn’t a spelling mistake. The brush tool will clean the “stare” right off of anyone’s face. Try it sometime. :wink:

Out of the box...It needed some assembly. And looked like a Nascar with all the sticker on it! Seriously, it was ridiculously funny!

Now some people complain about this vacuums weight, but I find it perfectly balanced, not too heavy, not too light. If anything I think a heavy weight in vacuums feels like better quality to me. This vacuum performs the tasks at hand- handily!

To say the suction is Amazing is truly an understatement. As other reviewers have statedyou CAN NOT turn the brushroller off so it may spit out debris when vacuuming bare floors. I think this is its biggest negative. But, I can live with that because most low cost vacuums do not have that feature anyways.

No light yall! Really you WANT a light??? Tape a flashlight to it. (LOL-Just kidding)
When we got this vacuum I vacuumed our white rugs(which look very clean) with my 6 year old Hoover bag vacuum, than my 4 year old Bissell Bagless vacuum (which my wife hated from the day we bought it). We than went and Vacuumed the room with this one. We do not have pets now… but we do have two kids (8 & 17). And we never open our windows for fear of pollen. WOW! The dirt that it picked up was amazing! Lint, dust gross! The thing was visibly full in the first room! That would have been a full bag trashed the first minute. Now, seriously, how many people check their bags to see if they are filled? I do think bag vacuums are old-tech. Bag Vacuum makers make their real money in replacement bags. I think I dumped this thing out three times since I bought it. The canister holds a lot too I am trying to figure out where all this dirt is coming from!
Most Vacuums Empty monitors display red when they are CONSIDERABLY vacuum suction restricted. By that time, your vacuum is already not vacuuming like it would with a freshly dumped canister or freshly replaced bag. Just note that the canister removes from the vacuum. You can take it outside and dump it into a plastic bag. The dust that comes out is simply disgusting!!! DO NOT DO THIS IN YOUR HOUSE!

This vacuum pushes very easily, and the attachments that come with it are not bad. Watch yourself when using the hand wand to suction up your floor edges, future, curtains etc, it may accidently suck up your couch. :wink: I do like the fact the cord self-retracts back into the vacuum with the push of a button. Nice feature but I wonder how long it will continue to operate for. The power switch is in front of the handle, which is different.

We are very happy with this purchase. I thank everyone for their reviews to help me make this purchase decision. I also like the fact that Consumer Reports rated this better than vacuums that cost three times as much!

For the ‘other’ reviewers writing about belts breaking easily… well, time will tell for me. I do not suction up ‘hard’ objects though with it.

If this review was of any help please hit the yes tab.
