In a past life I used to be an ice technician, which means I used to drive a Zamboni. I bought this item to remind me of those days. While I have seen others here who have complained about the actual vacuum's performance, I can't speak to that as I did not buy it to clean anything. My one complaint about this item though is it's size. The specs claim that "the Zamboni desk vacuum measures approximately 13-4/5 by 15-4/5 by 12-1/5 inches." In reality the BOX for the item measures 7 1/2 by 4 1/2 by 5 inches, with the actual vacuum smaller than that. Quite a difference! This item is a faithful rendering of a Zamboni, all the way down to the moving board brush under the machine. It is much smaller than advertised though, so if the large size claimed was one reason you chose it, as it was for me, you might want to think again whether or not this is what you want.
