This vac was easy to assemble and it is also easy to use. It's very lightweight and rolls around smoothly. The suction is very strong, and it comes with a few attachments. I've been using it in the basement for general cleaning in the laundry area and in my craft area (mosaics) and it works well. An improvement would be to have attachments stored on the canister somewhere so they don't get lost, but otherwise it's perfect, and I am happy with it.
I used my vacuum as part of renovating a house I bought. The supplied hose broke away from the connector that attaches clips on the vacuum after less than a month of usage. I would not buy again as the hose is going to cost half of a brand new complete set
He has a smaller car and it is a perfect fit. Not to heavy to move around and sweeps up really good. He loves it.
