I'll start with the cons. It IS heavy and a bit awkward to use. It doesn't "follow" well and the hose kinks easily. The cord could be longer too. It's pricey and I'm not sure I can buy any parts or filters locally so most likely I'll have to shop online for that. Now for the pros. It really does clean extremely well. I've purchased a Kirby and a Dyson in the past and this little machine has them both beat by a mile. It's amazing how well this picks up the dirt and pet hair. Yes, its gross when you clean it and see what was in your carpet but I don't find dealing with it that bad. I dump the contents outside and the 'solid' gunk I wipe out with a paper towel and rinse the rest of the parts under the faucet. It started to get a bit of a smell so I washed the hepa filter just with water and a brush. It's not like new but its a big improvement and should extend the life of it until I need to buy a replacement filter. Switching to the 'wet' method of cleaning is also a bit cumbersome but I've used it on carpet and on hard floors and it works pretty well. I probably would be happy with a Rainbow machine also but I chose this one and I'm happy with it.

I have owned the Rotho Twin tt with all the accessory's for about five years and paid $1200. I should have returned it immediately.
If your house is starting out nearly spotless and without pets than this vacuum would be ok for you. However if there is dirt and pet fur on your floor this thing clogs up after vacuuming one small room. So to keep it operating properly you have to keep emptying, rising, and refilling the tank (which is a bucket with odd angles that requires a toothbrush to clean out the corners) maybe 3 or 4 times just to vacuum through the house once. I dump the tank in the yard and use the hose on it, later I pick up the dried fur ball laying on the grass . If this bucket was to break I don't even know if replacements are available.
Then there are filters that are a pain to rinse and clean. The site I purchased this vacuum from left the impression there were no filters that needed to be replaced and they didn't offer them. Well there are. Five years ago a set cost about $35, so I purchased five of them from another site. I am down to one set left, so I go online to purchase more and they are $50 each. I notice they aren't even available through Amazon.
Also where the hose connects to the vacuum must be pulled apart and cleaned once in awhile.
I have used the upholstery and carpet shampooer attachments a few times, these are ok.
My mother has had a Rainbow vacuum for 26 years, with no complaints. I wish I had put out the extra money and purchased one.

Despite all these complaints the Rotho vacuum has amazing suction and will get carpets really clean. And if you keep the tank and filters cleaned the exhaust air is very fresh.

I just love this vacuum, it makes our home so clean and shiny. That's amazing. You can see youself as in the mirrow when you look at the floor. I recoommend this vacuum cause it's really powerful and easy to operate. Of course you need to clean it after each use, but it doesn't take to long. I think you'll love it.

I just love this vacuum. My cleaning woman loves it, too. At the beginning I thought I made a mistake because it takes some reading to understand how it works. However, if one takes the time, this machine it's incredible. the first thing I noticed was the clean odor when vacuuming. I don't have to put any kind of deodorant or pellets in the bag. Secondly, as you vacuum longer with it, the amount of soil in the container dimishes and now it takes about an hour of vacuuming before we have to change the water. We have tested it on rugs, upholstery and windows, and once you get to know how it works, it's really good. I am very happy with my ROTHO Twin TT and as much as I love my Miele, this one has become the queen, in my house.

I bought a Rotho Twin TT about a month ago and its the best thing ever. I have mostly hard surfaces and it does a great job on my tile and hardwood. I couldnt believe how bad my other vacuum was performing until I saw the dirt that this thing picked up. No gross bags to throw out either. Its worth the money and comes with a great warranty.

Verified Purchase
All Brand Vacuums sold it to me!!! It does not work, the vender sent me a floor model that was used and it does not pick anything up. I contacted All Band Vacuums and he was very rude about the issue when I sent him an e-mail. It's heavy to move around with it and a $100.00 or less cheap vaccum can do a better job.

I bought this vacuum about three months ago from a warehouse store. Although I love how it cleans, it is not for the faint of heart!

I will start by saying I vacuum every week and follow the "rules" about how many times and directions you should vacuum the carpet. The first time I used this, however, it was full of what looked like wet dryer lint and hair, so guess my previous vacuum just wasn't getting it done as well as I thought it was. After using it for 10-12 times now, I still find that it picks up an amazing amount of fuzz, dust, whatever.

Pros: sucks up everything in the carpet, exhaust air is super fresh, does a nice job cleaning my wood floors (when I want to spend the extra time vs running a mop over them), fits under most low tables and furniture so don't have to move furniture to vacuum under it.
Cons: heavy, need to clean it out after vacuuming only one level of my house (about 1500 sq feet), cord automatically retracts so will unplup itself, smaller cleaning head than my old vacuum.

Overall, this is a great vacuum if you know what you are getting into when you buy it. I believe my house is cleaner and I can deal with the hassle of filling it with water and then dumping out the filth afterwards. I rinse the bucket and filters out in my basement utility sink and let them air dry, which cuts down on clean up time.
