This is my first stick vacuum and i'm kind of obsessed! I have two 60 lb dogs so quick clean ups are a requirement in our house. This vac is super easy to pop off the storage/charging station with all the accessories i need right there, so i'm not constantly looking for them. I am shocked at how long the battery lasts. i typically use it on low to conserve and it does just as good of a job if it were on high, i can get my entire main floor vacuumed included in the furniture in 1 charge! like almost 25 min. I was concerned about being able to buy another battery if this one gives out, so i contacted Kenmore customer service and they said they will be available for purchase this year..so the reviewer above need not worry, we'll see!. I also like that it extends so my husband doesn't have an excuse not to use it lol!, it's nice and long, great for him and cleaning the ceiling corners. I don't mind switching out nozzles for carpet and my hardwoods, its nice to see they are very different materials which seems like they are cleaning differently. The pet tool is AMAZING. like i said the dog hair, ugh, and this thing really has a ton of power to remove all the hair from our couches...My step mom has a Dyson and used ours and she said loved how it doesn't have a 'trigger' to hold down the whole time...ok i guess that's enough rambling. :)
This is the best stick vac I have ever used! I gave it 4 stars because it is pricey and the way the accessories attach and detach. If they place the detaching clips to the accessory it would be easier to switch them out (you have to use it to understand what I'm talking about) and drop the price a bit. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats and it works amazing on the pet hair!
I like the vacuum's suction, both on low and high settings. Great for the carpet and reaches easily under the beds. Very lightweight and easy to carry up and down the stairs. Cleans better than many bagged vacuums.
