I did not think it was possible to find a vacuum specifically for pets and allergies, with a stair beater brush for this price. My old Kenmore died and I was not impressed with the newer ones with bags. The plastic was cheap and they did not do a good job cleaning. This one was on display so I tested it in the store. I was impressed. I never thought I would like a bagless one. So I bought it and tried it as soon as I got home because if I didn't like it I would just return it. It's a keeper. I LOVE it. We have a Blue Point Himalayan cat and he has really long fur. We also have a very furry house bunny. So the vacuum needs to do a great job with pet fur. This vacuum does an excellent job. We have runners up our stairs and the stair beater brush also does an excellent job. We have allergies and asthma and it does a great job cleaning.
I bought this to replace an upright vac and a canister vac, hoping this would work well. It doesn't. The upright was 'bagless' and had a capacity of maybe half a gallon. Emptying it was a piece of cake ?everything just slid out. The 'dust cup' of this thing is accurately named ?it seems to hold maybe two cups and if anything other than dust goes into it, like a few leaves, or bits of grass or paper or whatever, it plugs up and emptying it entails having to bang it up and down to get what's in there out. I just had to clean up the entire kitchen floor from trying to empty this 'dust cup' into the kitchen trash. NOT WORTH IT! I'm going to have to toss this thing after only a couple years and get something useful. I hope you don't make the same mistake of buying it that I did.
Affordable price, do the job I use it everyday everywhere
