You'll get convenient and effective above floor cleaning with a variety of tools. The bare floor brush is perfect for hard floors. The extended reach of the quick-draw wand is perfect for getting those hard-to-reach spots. Plus, the Pet Handi-Mate® brush picks up even the most stubborn pet hair from furniture, stairs and other surfaces.
This vacuum might be bagless, but it's just as easy to clean with a detachable
This is an excellent vacuum. Very strong cleaning action, surprised to see the amount it got out of my carpet. The dirt sensor works well. Love the lift-off capability for the car, and the wand/hand nozze flexibility. It is a but on the heavy side, but it is a heavy duty machine. I like being able to turn the brush roll off by touching the button on the cleaner head. Easy to clean as the canister can be taken apart, but like all bagless vacuums, emptying it will be dusty... Also like the adjustable wand, and the wand can be taken off with the floor tool on, or off.
After purchasing this vacuum and using it for about a month, I am beyond frustrated. I consider my house to be relatively clean and vacuum 1-2 times per week. I love the versatility and movement of this vacuum, but the primary filter clogs very quickly and sets off the by-pass valve (part of the motor protection system) after 1-2 rooms. This requires emptying and cleaning of the filters and they want you to run the primary filter under water to clean and allow 24 hours to dry. It took mine closer to 48 hours to dry. And then repeat the same process. I have 8 carpeted rooms and a hallway to vacuum and I don't have that kind of time. The design of the vacuum is great. I just wish it functioned better.
I like it. Breaking it apart. Putting it back together. Cleaning the stairs. Easy to use. Really good. Best vacuum I've had so far
I liked my new vacuum purchased in August of this year (2018). It was so loud you had to use ear protection but otherwise, it did the job. This week the brushes did not move when the machine was on. So I cleaned everything and looked to see if something was caught in the roller and it wasn't. Unplug, pushed the agitator reset button but nothing. No problem I had a maintenance agreement my husband purchased with the vacuum. No--its a purchase protect policy!!! What on earth is that? I need my vacuum fixed not protected. Called Sears locally. A young man said he didn't know about getting my vacuum fixed because he worked in appliances. (I had specifically asked for the Vacuum department). End of conversation. My 1 star is more for the customer service than the vacuum.
vacuum clogs every time it is used. have had nothing but trouble with it
I loved it at first, then the agitator stopped working. Had to put in a claim on the item which is a complete different issue. But I got a new one same model and I do like it but still dont think it is worth the price of 300.00. I don't like that there is no cord rewind, and that you have to manually push the head of the vacuum with your foot to pull back the handle, there should be a button for that. Also the dirt cup could be larger, I have to empty it three times when I vacuum my whole house as I have a golden retriever.
