A True Workhorse
on July 25, 2013
I'm a single thirtysomething with a long hair cat and very little time to tidy my place. As a result, my place is far from being a model of cleanliness. My decison to purchase this vacuum came stemmed from a long history of my girlfriend complaining about a neverending supply of dust and cat hair on my floors. I tried my best to combat the problem with the upright Bissell I owned but the machine could not handle the task. Eventually a stern ultimatum was given by my girlfriend; either address the floor issue or she would no longer visit my place. I had to bite the bullet. I reviewed several vacuums, testing none. The Dyson Animal model appealed to me, but with a far heftier price tag, I finally decided on a Kenmore. After opening the box and a brief glance at the instruction booklet, I powered up the machine. I was nearly in shock when I made the first pass over my living room rug. The rug that once had cat hair and dirt granules that could not be lifted were immediatly stripped from the rug and the results appeared almost infomercial-like as the vacuum head glided over the surface. I actually enjoy vacuuming thanks to the machine. No more messy apartment, no more angry angry girlfriend. This unit should be considered to anyone in the market for a new vacuum.
