Summary: Excellent vacuum. Purchased for our office (6000+ office area) to replace 2 different units which were more residential-type units. This one is no frills, no light, just great suction. Works great, happy with the purchase.
Summary: I use this to pre-vacuum carpets before bonnet cleaning with the Oreck Orbiter, and it does a great job. It is fairly easy to break it down for cleaning (fan chamber, brush roll, etc). The shake out bag does emit dust when bumped and on start up if it isn't kept clean.
Summary: Excellent vacuum! I bought one for my dad so he can use it at his store. He vacuums every morning and he has gone through dozens of vacuums. So far, this one is the best one. It works perfectly and picks up way more than any other vacuum we've purchased.
