Summary: Now I don't mind the vacuuming chore. The vacuum works just as described and I have no complaints. The hose for the tool attachments seems long enough until you set the vacuum for tool use. The suction is so strong it draws up the hose and you can't stretch it out the full length.
Summary: We love it! We have a Saint Bernard and a Border Collie so you well know that we vacuum everyday. Easy to handle, much easier to get over carpet than our Oreck, I really don't have a complaint. I do wish the bags were bigger.
Summary: Got this to replace the bagless version of otherwise same machine. Uugh - don't know what was worse with the bagless... the mess of emptying, cleaning filter, cleaning hair lodged in intake... or listening to my wife complain about that. Anyway, back to this model.

Summary: i bought this vacuum because consumer reports rated it one of the best on pet hair. i also bought a sale model because it said it only had cosmetic damages. there were no cosmetic damages but the roller brush only moves in the upright position.
Summary: Ahhh...finally a vacuum that works. Great design. Easy bag removal - no mess, no fuss. Basically writing this so that all of my reviews are not about products I don't like (especially another company's vacuum that just plainly sucked). This vacuum, on the other hand, rocks.

Summary: Just received this vacuum - the first use was great. I have 3 cats and a dog who was born to shed. This vacuum did a great job in picking up pet hair and my carpet hasn't looked this good since it was shampood 3 months ago!
Summary: Strong suction, great edge pick-up. I have used it several times since purchasing and I love it. It picks up all the cat hair - whether carpet or hard flooring. I would strongly recommend this vacuum.
