In 1970 I was given a 1950's vintage Constellation that had been in continuous use. I used it happily until 2004, when it finally broke down. That makes about 50 years of service. In all those years, the only maintenance was a new cord.
When I started shopping for a replacement, I was sadly disappointed. I looked at everything on the market, and found shoddy materials and hard-to-use products. I finally settled on an expensive Ghibli designed for industrial use. It has a long cord, large bags, good suction, and is sturdy. But it doesn't follow me around like the Constellation did.
So, when I saw that Hoover was once again making the Constellation, I bought myself a brand new one. I was afraid Hoover might have made negative improvements, but most features match the original, and all materials are sturdy. The one disappointment is the heaviness of the tube (wand). Luckily I had saved the attachments from my old Constellation, and was able to use my old, light-weight alluminum wands. I have only wood and tile floors, with a few throw rugs, so when I vacuum, I use only the crevice tool.Read more ›
The Constellation is well made and is not like most cheap plastic models on sale in large box stores.
I highly recommend it!
Amended 8/27: I have discovered one frustrating feature to this vacuum. There is no easy way to wind the power cord for storage. It has a place where it belongs, at the base of the ball-shaped canister, but actually winding it is a real pain. I needed to detach the vacuum head, and somehow manage the tubing over my shoulder since I need two hands to wind (it's hard to explain!). I wrapped it around my neck (like a big snake in a tourist photo) and kept it there while clumsily winding. It's awkward, to say the least. That being said, I still love my vacuum.
