I work at a banqueting facility with a two main dining rooms and multiple smaller conference rooms. All rooms are carpeted and multiple events are held in each of the rooms throughout the day seven days a week. A few years back, the previous GM had purchased a pair of Dysons in addition to the two Sanitaires already in use at double the cost. We ended up throwing out the Dysons after a few months because both had broken down. To be fair, those Dysons were probably more for home use. Nonetheless, we've used and abused the Sanitaires at my workplace before and after every event for the past 10+ years. I recently purchased two of these to replace the two that have finally run their course and expect them to last just as long, if not more. For those that work in an industry where vacuuming is frequent, you'll be glad you picked Sanitaire.

Pros: Quality parts, powerful suction yet so easy to maneuver, shake-out bag system (no need to purchase disposable bags), great value.
Cons: Noise level may be higher than other "home-use" vacuums.

This review relates to the Sanitaire 886, the only difference from the 899 is that the 899 is about 2 inches wider than the 886. I moved into an apartment with new short shag carpeting and I discovered that my Dirt Devil was not the answer, so I started researching. One of the first thing I did was to go to youtube.com and I found a video entitled "Best Vacuum Cleaner". Do a search on that as I did and I got a quick education on vacuums, this will be worth your while to take a look.

Subsequently I purchased the Sanitaire 886 in Canada for $270.00. I quickly found that I had made a good decision for it cleaned very well. To establish the proper height, I called the fellow on the video because he talks about the care of the pile. He told me to get a handful of Rice Krispies and put the cereal about two inches in front of the vacuum. Lower the handle, set the height to it's highest setting, shag in my case, lower the handle and turn on the machine. You are looking for the RK to start to bounce. If not at the highest setting, then lower it and when the cereal starts to bounce, as you will see in the video, that's the proper height. I did exactly that, the vacuum scooped up the cereal and I was good to go. If you look carefully, you will see the vacuum actually pick up the carpet. You will learn that it's not all suction....airflow is a big part of the efficiency of the cleaning power.

I am finished buying vacuum cleaners, this a commercial unit being used in a residential setting, it should last for as long as I need it. The cord is a too long for my needs, but that can be shorten without a problem. Pay attention to the video, it all makes sense. Good Luck!!!!

I own a commercial cleaning company based in NYC. I buy only Sanitaire uprights. This one has the extra wide rotary brush for large areas.
● They are well designed. Sturdy and EASY to repair, relative to other makes.
● They clean well.
● Good value for money.

Over the last 13 years, we have bought too many vacuums more than I can count. We have a prayer hall (or masjid) of 300 max capacity and we have never been able to find a decent machine to last more than a few months until now. This machine has a lot of power. We are very satisfied with our purchase.

This is easily the best vacuum i have ever used. With all the other ones we could never vacuum up all the dog hair my dog leaves around the house. I use to vacuum for a long time and then go over it with my carpet cleaner and still pick up a lot of dirt and dog hair, now I vacuum quickly and when i use my floor cleaner it doesn't pick up what the vacuum was suppose to.

Pros
- Great build quality.
- Great suction.
- A safety stop so you don't break the belt when something gets stuck.
- Cheap replacement bag and belts(not that i need to replace it already i was just checking for future reference)

Cons
- No built in light for dark corners
- No attachments (but that could by why it has so much suction so i plan on getting a small hose vacuum for the corners)
- Not chain driven like my old vacuum so you don't have to worry about breaking belts (Although once again the chain driven vacuum didn't work well so that could have been one of its problem.)

Food for thought- If they added attachments and a chain belt the vacuum may not work as well as it does right now so I would rather it clean as well as it does than add those. I can't imagine why they never added a light though.

This is a terrific product! The size and style let you know right out of the box, that this is not your Momma's Hoover. This baby has plenty of power and something else that I really appreciate, a very long power cord. The quality and design are superb. If you are looking for a serious vacuum, this is your huckleberry!

It states commercial vacuum but it can barely hold sufiet service for one small area rug
I am using it for a 4 story building corridor carpet. (simple flat carpet)
Broke down 3 times before the end term of the warranty.

1st - Belt issues - belt had to be replaced
2nd - Brush issues - Screws got loose and caused the brush to be dropped which caused damage to the corridor carpet
3rd - Cord issues - defected cord
This is the worst vacuum i have had in years
Stay away if your time and carpets are valuable for you
