Summary: We have a large house with nearly all hard floors and a dog. This vacuum picks up all the fur no problem. Hair pad on the floor head works well to pull out the fur off the area rugs, however for the bare floor, with the brushes down, it pushes the dirt ahead. Need to pull the head back over the dirt to get it to vacuum it up. I've used better bare floor heads than this one.
Cleaning the canister is SOOOO Frustrating!!! YUCK

Summary: I am very disappointed! The vacuum really does pick up the hair and anything else under the carpet but when you have to empty the canister, you need another vacuum to clean up all the mess that doesn't drop into the bottom of the canister. I go so angry yesterday with the vacuum and mess that I just threw it in the spare room and used my old reliable with a bag. The fur gets all tangled up at the top and everything drops out.
Summary: So far I am loving this little vacuum. I was buying those lint type brushes to get the hair off my bed, but I go through so many, and the cost starts to add up. Now I can just vacuum all the dog hair off of my bed. I also use the other attachment for spot vacuuming, picking up dog hair off the floor. That way, I don't have to vacuum so often. I like this vacuum because it is not cordless.
Yeah, Well It Works Because It Has 5 Filters You Have To Clean Or Replace

Summary: Yeah, Well It Works Because It Has 5 Filters You Have To Clean Or Replace. First there's sort of a staged arrangement where the air flow passes through a couple of plastic traps and a plastic strainer. Then it hits the first foam filter that's on the bottom of the removable housing, followed by a paper filter also attached to the removable housing. Then there's a foam pre-motor filter and finally a HEPA post motor filter. A full set of filters runs about $25.
