In my opinion this kenmore canister vac works just as good as the more expensive kenmore's minus all the extra features. Have had the vacuum for 4 years and have not had to have it serviced yet. Most common problems people have with their vacuums is more than likely from not taking care of it properlu
Great Vacuum! It's lightweight, with a long cord and good attachments. Has excellent suction! Wish the bare floor brush lasted longer but replacements are easy to get. It does blow "exhaust" out the back and I wish "that" was filtered.
