I have to start off by saying WOW! What a vacuum.
I am not one to be excited about appliances, but this thing is awesome! I bought this specifically for my porch, which sees a tona of traffic in and out of the backyard. I put it together, and tested it out, and I can not believe the dirt, dust and dog hair it sucked up.
I have never owned a bagless vac before, and the things this vacuum sucks up is unbelievable. I bought this while at Walmart, knowing I needed a new Vac. It was rolled back (and still is) to 44.00. Well, thats not too bad, so I picked one up. I am not sorry I got this at all.
It is an all-in-one kind of machine, the attachments are located right on the machine, and its so easy to take the hose out, and get the corners of your room, or you know, the edges of the moulding that collect dust... It just picks that right up.
This was extremley easy to put together, the handle just snaps onto the main unit, and just two screws keep it tight. Very easy to set up. This also has 5 different cleaning heights, for different kind of floors. I have carpet and hardwood. I love to clean the hardwoods with it as well, and the dirt does not fly underneath the machine, like some other vacs do...
The collection cup sits in there tight, and comes out easily, with a slip of a lever. It has washable filters which are very easy to get to, they are in the cup. You just twist it apart, and wash the filter out.
This has got to be one of the most user-friendly devices I have played with in a long time.
