Not that effective with pet fur on upholstery
on March 12, 2015
I'm disappointed. The reviews were so good, but my main purpose for this hand vac was to get pet hair off of upholstery. I had been using my Shark Navigator to do the job and it performed admirably with the roller brush attachment. I wanted a hand vac that would do as well without dragging out my vacuum. (the clip on the handle/detachable wand broke and I have to keep it duct taped together now! So it was a tad inconvenient to use the detachable wand) I thought this unit being a corded one would be powerful and the rotating brush would be good too. Perused the questions others had asked and it seemed it got high marks for removing pet hair. Not so much. Average at best. The roller brush essentially stops moving when I vacuum over furniture as the suction is pretty strong. Anyway, what it left behind my Shark Navigator upright got in a single swipe. Grrrr. This handheld vac may be fine for many things (so I'm not giving it less than 3 stars) but as far as sweeping up pet fur on upholstered furniture....maybe a 2 star rating would be more appropriate. As a note, I did try the riser visor...and I did like that feature. I don't have stairs but it was handy when doing the back of a chair.
