Excerpt: Thoroughly enjoying the new machine. I do not find it heavy nor difficult to move as some reviewers noted. The suction is terrific on cat hair from two animals. I also like that the cord is a bit longer than some machines offer.
Summary: Bought (a green) one (from Lowe's) when we needed a replacement for our ~1991 Electrolux Epic 3500 sr upright. The previous vacuum was a bulletproof long-lived vacuum, and we (like others here and elsewhere) bought the new one based mostly on the name. It turns out that this was our mistake.
Summary: Electrolux will be glad to know I'm not returning my vacuum for the forth time to be repaired. I gave it away and purchased a shark. This is part of the free advertisement I promised you wouldn't want. No more Electrolux for me...
Summary: BEWARE THIS PRODUCT IS A WASTE OF MONEY! I bought this vacuum for $159.00. The first time I used it, the suction stopped working, so I returned it and was sent a second one that stopped working after 2 months.
Summary: This is our second Electrolux vacuum. When we took the first one (a terrible vacuum) to a repairman, he contacted the company, and they sent us this as a replacement. We were so excited...until we realized that it's awful too.
Summary: This is by far the worst vacuum I've ever owned!! I thought Electrolux was a quality name! What a joke. The suction is fine. That's it. Everything is extremely cumbersome to use. And it's heavy. I was used to my 8 lb. Oreck (which I'll be purchasing again).
