Summary: It is heavy. It does have good suction. The beater bar turns off if handle is in upright position. Easy to dump the dirt it picks up. Handle does come out for edge cleaning but the hose is not long enough and it is awkward to move base with no handle. Outlet cord is very long.

Summary: This little vacuum has a lot of suction and does a great job. It's not as big as the Bissell I bought that lasted less than a year and it's not nearly as loud, either. The handle is adjustable so you can adjust it to your height. Very nice feature there.

Summary: We've had this model for nearly 2-1/2 years, now, and I'm just as pleased with it as when we first bought it to replace a mediocre Hoover vacuum. The long cord allows for fewer interruptions while vacuuming and we have NOT had a problem with it curling, etc. I'm approximately 5'-8" and weigh 175-lb.

Summary: We have had this vacuum now for several months and we are very happy with it. It is one of the best vacuum cleaners we have ever owned, so far. We have a long haired cat in the house and this vacuum picks up mountains of fur. This canister is easily emptied and reinserted onto the machine.
