Summary: This vacuum has very good suction and cleans great. In the reviews I read, Several people asked if it had a floor sweeper for hardwood...Yes it does. The carpet sweeper can be easily removed and replaced with the floor sweeper or any of the other attachments. You can also change the carpet sweeper to floor and use it on your hardwood, but I prefer the attachment for the floor because it will go under some of my furniture better and get in the corners better.
Summary: I've had this cleaner before and Panasonic used to make the Kenmores that I've had. The latest Kenmores, despite their reviews in Consumer Reports, don't seem to be up to the quality or design of the older ones. This Panasonic model hasn't changed and though basic, and a bit loud, does the job well. Had to order it online because few stores carry canister vacs any more.
Summary: I just got the vac and only used it a few times, but so far so good. I went from a upward bag less unit to this. I guess the best feature is that I can get underneath most furniture and beds. We have pets, so dog hair is EVERYWHERE! My only concern is that it's made out of plastic, and eventually, after a few hits & scratches things will most likely start cracking. The plastic used isn't what it used to be back in my moms days.
Summary: So far, I am very pleased with my Panasonic Canister Vacuum Cleaner. I have both carpet and tile floors in my home. This vacuum is equipped to clean both of these surfaces. It is easy to handle and I like having the attachments right inside the canister. I also like the controls on the handle. I had researched many other vacuums and decided this would be my best purchase. I did also purchase the three year service warranty.
