I use it for hard floor.
Great suction: By the first try, It collected ~ a pint of fine dirt on my
wiped floor. The suction is much better than my old electrolux full size canister vacuum.
very nice price, sorry to amazon, i got it for $100 from costco.
2 tricks for easy use:
1, I hook the shoulder belt on the vacuum and the ring on the hand handle. if you make the shoulder belt the shortest, it perfectly drags the vacuum on the wheels. So, I don't drag on the hose.
2, take off the hard floor tool, then use the telescopic tube for hard to reach corners.
It will be perfect if it can wrap the cord by itself and if it has a dirt bag. anyway, most corded vacuums have an annoying cord and all bagless vacuum are kind of messy.
When I returned home ,3000 miles away, and saw my clunker in the closet, I knew what to do----order my own Shark canister and I have never been disappointed.
UPDATE 4/27/13: I did replace the first vacuum with another identical one. The hose just came off of it today--same exact problem. Awesome little machine, for a month or two. If you have loads of time to waste returning them, go ahead and purchase. I, however, will be going with a different brand.
Long version: FIRST, the canister is way too small and requires constant emptying. SECOND, the emptying process makes a huge mess. The canister has to be opened from the top and bottom to empty it, but because it has plastic guts inside you still need to remove hair and any other stringy debris with YOUR HAND. You also need to clean the foam air filter because otherwise it loses suction. After emptying, you and the vacuum will be covered in dust - our vacuum has been covered in dust since the first time we cleaned it. THIRD, to use the vacuum upright you have to attach the hose to an extendable tube. This tube's extending mechanism is INSIDE the tube - which causes constant clogging in the tube. The only way to clear these clogs is to remove the tube and nozzle, flip the tube around, and use the hose to suck the tube from the other direction. Then you have to reassemble until the next clog - which will happen soon. FOURTH, the wide nozzle used for floors has a very small degree of movement which requires you to hold the whole thing at a very precise and odd angle - if you try to reach forward or backward with it the narrow angle causes the nozzle to lose contact with the ground. FIFTH, the vacuum includes a wheel base, but as you move about you must awkwardly pull the vacuum which often results in it tipping over. SIXTH, there is no way to store the hose or the power cord on the vacuum - instead they insultingly give you a velcro loop to tie up the cord. SEVENTH, there are too many buttons on it. Even having used it for a while, I still have hard time deciphering the power button, the cup release button, the open the canister button, and the remove from base button.Read more ›
