Summary: my last WindTunnel lasted 15 years and cleaned better than my $1500 Kirby. This one cleans at least as well..great suction!..on board tools sometimes fall, but these are minor problems that can be fixed ( hang a bag over the handle to store tools )..If it lasts as long, I'm thrilled.
Summary: I have not had a self-propelled vacuum in many years , this is a blesssing to me because I have COPD. I can vacuum my floors again without relying on someone else. The only thing that is doesn't have is a cord winder. but that is a minor inconvenience. I like the vacuum very much.
Summary: The model that this unit replaced had been worked very hard for several years, and finally wore out. When we found that this model was still available, we ordered it. We tried it out, and as a surprise to us, not only was the original quality still there, they had even managed to make improvements on what we had considered the best vacuum we had ever had. Yes, we love it and would happily recommend it to others. The self-propelled feature is a major plus.
