Destroys everything it sits on for more than 10 seconds

Summary: Good vaccuum for cleaning heavy rugs and bare floor. HOWEVER, when you switch to the 'tool' setting, the rotating/spinning/sucking of the vaccuum does not stop. I found this out when I used it to vaccuum out my car - I set the unit on the seat and it destroyed/burnt the upholstery. Similarly, if you have a thin rug, or a rug with nylon fibers, it will get sucked up, chewed up, burnt, and destroyed. Again, found this out the hard way.
Excerpt: I was pleasantly surprised by this vacuum. My actual model is the Airspeed Exact Pet cleaner and what a killer vacuum. It was on sale for $69.00 at Wal-Mart from $79 when I purchased it.ManeuverabilityI had no trouble getting this vacuum into tight places and it moved around really well. Plus, it is light enough that it is no bother to pick it up and move it, even one handed.
Excerpt: We dress up for Halloween. One of our staff members wore Dorothy shoes and glitter was everywhere. We couldn't get it up with our older canister vacuum. After purchasing this one, not only did the glitter come up, so did other dirt that was left behind. We dumped the canister two times before vacuuming half of the office. Great suction and easy use of extended tools. Love it!!!
Summary: The suction is good, but the machine is heavy & awkward for carrying up and down stairs. I also wish I'd stuck with a bag-type, because taking it apart to empty is a bit of a hassle. However, the most frustrating thing about this vacuum is that the piece on the back which holds the permanently-attached hose out of the way (& around which the cord is wound when not in use), is cheaply made & doesn't attach securely.

Summary: We bought this vacuum cleaner about 3 months ago and regretted it rather quickly, since it is already broken. We had a number of different brands over the years and while neither of them lasted more than a couple of years, this one was certainly a record. The entire vacuum cleaner is cheaply made and, as mentioned by multiple reviewers, is an absolute pain to clean.
