Summary: I wanted a hand vac & most of them work on batteries. The battery life was not particularly good...and customer comments were not very positive. This vac is cord connected...and the cord is long enough for my use. It also has good power.
Summary: This vacuum lives up to its reputation of having powerful suction and being easy to carry around. My only wish would be for an optional extension tube for the hose. I have hardwood floors, so I want to use the hose extensively, and have to bend down a lot since it's quite short.
Summary: McHardy stands behind their 100% satisfaction guarantee. Read many great reviews so I was disappointed when the vacuum on/off button was so stiff it took two thumbs to move it. They sent a new one immediately and prepaid the return shipping.
Summary: I was amazed at the suction power of this hand vac. The one I have actually picks up dust/dirt/dog hair better than my Dyson Animal! I've owned over 20 vacs in the past 10 years, and this little hand vac is wonderful, and I can't believe the low $36.99 price tag!
Summary: We love this handheld vacuum cleaner. It's a little heavier than we wanted but it does such a great job we don't even mind! And the cord is plenty long enough and wraps around the bottom easily enough for storage. It's easy to clean out.
