Great Canister

This unit is a huge upgrade to the recent line of Kenmore canisters. This one has a true dusting brush not the goofy one that slips over the handle like the cheaper models. Suction is very strong. The ultra plush feature does indeed reduce the drag when vacuuming carpets of most any type. Bumpers are everywhere they need to be to protect furniture. The compartment door is much higher quality and design than cheaper models....nice catch/closure and less likely to crack near the hinges. The only improvement I would make is to either eliminate the vents on the crevice tool.or make them adjustable where one could turn them off and on. Sometimes you want/need full suction on a crevice tool! Bags are spendy but also better quality and more effective than the paper type in cheaper models.

Buyer Beware! Do not buy this Vacuum Cleaner!!

Prior to purchasing this vacuum cleaner, I've owned four Kenmore Vacuums in 33 years and had good results up till now. This vacuum is not up to the standards of Kenmore and the Sears name that I've come to expect. This is my second attempt with this model and it is going back to the store tomorrow for a refund. I exchanged the first one due to the poor quality and workmanship of the nozzle release and mechanism on the vacuuming wand. The entire assembly is plastic seems cheaply made. During the normal back and forth motion while vacuuming the wand disconnects from the nozzle at least twelve to fourteen times or more just as with the first one.

I absolutely love this vaccum. Works really good. I have 2 pups and it picks up dog hair really well. It is very lite and easy to use. I would recommend this vaccum.

Very Powerfull

I bought this to replace a similar model that died after many years of use. I like the adjustable suction and easy access to the attachments. Also the release button to change attachments is a big improvement.

We actually had to give up a Kenmore cannister vacuum that I had really liked (now in the hands of our lucky daughter), but our plush carpet demanded a new approach. The new elite "floats" across the rug and does a great job with our dog's hair. We are very pleased.
