I hate havng to replace my vacuum because I am always afraid that I won't get one that will work as good as the old one. In fact, this last time, it took me a little while to finally get out there and buy one. Sure, I went to the stores and looked around and actually found some that I like but then I chickened out because I didn't think it would be good enough.
Finally, my husband got fed up and while at Walmart went looking for a vacuum. He found a Bissel Bagless vacuum for a decent price.
As soon as I used it I was very happy. i have a cat so it is a must for me to vacuum. My current vacuumIt was very easy to put together and once I put it to work, it the got the job done, not just on my carpet but my kitchen lenolium floors too!
Because it is a bagless vacuum, I don't have to change the bag. All I have to do is flip the bottom leaver over from left to right, pop out the plastic container and dump it in the trash. It is very easy to put back together for future use.
We had the vaccum for a little over 2 years and it still works the same as it did when he bought it. I have not had to buy any new parts for it. The only minor thing that happened was I got string wrapped around the brush but that was easy to fix. I love this vacuum and I love my husband even more for forcing me to get a new one.
