It is really easy to move around. It's not very loud, but has really good suction. It has a really long cord, and is easy to put away. It's great value for the money. It can roll upright or laying down. It's good for carpet and hardwood floors. The power button is big and easy to hit. The auto retract cord feature is good - means you don't have to wrap cord around. It has nice components to clean furniture. I would recommend this vacuum cleaner.
Read the other reviews --- some mention the odor --- burning oil? Burning wire? I have no idea but it's there. Picked it up for Black Friday for a good price but when we got it home the smell filled the house pretty quick. Took it outside and ran it for 40 minutes to try to air it out, and tried it again today --- smell is still there so back to sears it went. To bad because other than that, it works pretty good. One other thing ---- the hose comes straight out the top (take a look and imagine pulling it around) so it's going to break pretty quickly. The cord is short and the hose is short ----- I could live with all that if we could just solve the smell. Oh well, returned it and still looking, hope you have better luck.
I use this exclusively for my tile floors. It has great suction and is much quieter than my upright vacuum. I only use it about once every other week so it does not have to be an everyday unit. For what I use it for it works perfectly.
I have used this vacuum for a few months, Now I start to vacuum and within 5 minutes the vacuum stops I lay it down and maybe 10 minute it will start back up again. That is how I vacuum my house. Biggest wast of $50.00. The old saying, you get what you pay for is so true. I have to go buy another vacuum now.
I bought this July 2014 and it is terrible! It scratches my floors and leaves a black residue on them and now 4 months later the bottom metal frame is broke. I would not recommend this especially if you have to clean your floors daily.
Good luck getting bags. I have tried for 6 mths now, even called Customer Service. If you go to buy one ask about getting extra bags and see what they say. Piece of JUNK with no bags!!!
Works ok although the chemical odor is still there when operating the vacuum 2 years later.
Good luck finding bags.
Sears had no bags in the store when I bought the vacuum and they were also out of stock online. 2 years later they are still out of stock.
NOBODY is selling bags that fit this vacuum.
