And then I discovered that they had changed some things since my last model and I have to say I'm sorely disappointed it. [Edited to add - be sure to read through the bottom - it's only 5 months later and it has broken to the point that it is going out to the trash)
The new design of the floor attachment only works on perfectly flat floors (hardwood, linoleum, no-nap rugs) and only if you use it with the bristles retracted.
One reason I loved my past Mighty Mites was that a) I could use it in all my rooms, including the one room with a low-nap carpeting and another room with a slightly shaggy rug, and b) I could extend the bristles on the bottom of the floor attachment and those would catch all the long hairs my daughters shed!
What I discovered is that if you try to use it with the bristles extended on something with a low-nap, the floor attachment becomes angled in such a way that pushing it forward becomes 3x as hard as before, AND it looses almost all suction when you start to pull it back. The attachment actually bounces up off the ground as you pull it back! There is no way to have a smooth back-and-forth rhythm... it's PUSH HARD, and then pull back until ACK! it jumped over the spot it needed to vacuum so do that part again.
I had not yet thrown away my old Might Mite and so I tried the old floor attachment hooked up to this canister. Everything worked perfectly. So I can say that this canister has good suction power...
I called Eureka customer support to see if I had just gotten a defective model, and while he was very sympathetic to my problems, he made it clear that this was just how the floor attachments are designed now. He had me try it on the carpeting without the bristles extended, and it solved the problem of the attachment being hard to push... because now it was lightly rolling along with the feel of no suction in BOTH directions. :(
He said that they made the new attachments lighter and that was probably why I was having these problems and that he had heard this from other customers as well.
I will share a few of the other design changes as well:
On the old Mighty Mite, you included two long hard plastic tubes to create the 'wand' that allowed you to stand and vacuum. I liked that if I needed to vacuum something nearer, I could pop off one (or both) of the tubes to use it for things like stairs or cobwebs in the basement ceiling, etc.
The new Mighty Mite use a single metal, telescoping wand. This has the advantage that you can adjust it in smaller increments... so if you are slightly taller or shorter than the average person, you can make it the right height for you to do the floors. And you can adjust it down to half-length so it (in essense) can work on the same jobs where you'd use just one tube from the old model. One down side, though, is that it is a lot heavier. If you often used the old wand for overhead work, you're going to find your arms getting a lot more tired with this model.
Finally, they changed the on-off switch. It used to be mechanical -- there was a tactile sensation and a 'click' that went with turning it on. The new switch LOOKS the same but doesn't work the same. You start to press it and the machine is suddenly on. But if you haven't pressed it long enough, then the machine might turn off when you take your finger (or foot) away. So then you do it again. It may be that we'll get used to it, but I asked each member of the family to try the new vacuum (without telling them my thoughts) and everyone disliked the new switch.
This model still has good suction and is lightweight/maneuverable. As several reviewers have noted, the hose is lightweight and can kink easily but my second Mighty Mite was like that so I was used to that.
My plan is to use my old floor attachment with the new vacuum... and when this one dies someday, I guess I'll be shopping around and trying out a few different models.
[Added Jan 27, 2016... wow, 5 months later and I'm already having to buy a new vacuum. The cheap hose started to kink more and more frequently, until it was literally kinking right by the handle every single time I pulled back on it. This became SO aggravating that I pressed down hard on the power switch (the same one no one in my family liked) and apparently broke it. BUYER BEWARE -- the reviews from years past where this was a GOOD product no longer apply since Eureka has changed so many of the parts to cheaper pieces of junk!]
But the hose... OMG what a piece of junk. It is made of plastic and it came out of the box already kinked in 2 places. If you keep the hose straight, it's great. But try and keep a hose straight when you are actually using the vacuum. A replacement costs between 25 and 35 dollars. So to have a good vacuum, I will end up paying over a hundred dollars after replacing the hose.
1. It's hard plastic, as most canister vacuums are. The body of the unit is made of very sturdy, thick plastic and the wheels are solid and work well.
2. It has a long cord length. If it were any longer, it would be unwieldy. I don't think there is any vacuum that has a cord that is long enough to just plug in once and vacuum an entire house. The cord is long enough to vacuum two large rooms.
3. The hose is also thick plastic and does not kink.
4. Not all the attachments fit onto the body of the vacuum but I couldn't care less about that. I bought some extra attachment tools and I keep all the attachments in a small trash can that I carry with me as I go from room to room.
5. There is more or less static depending on where you live. I live in Tucson where it's dry and there's usually a lot of static in the air. It's not a dysfunction of the hose that it has static and that hair clings to it as you vacuum. I just wet a cleaning cloth, swipe it down the hose and all the hair and other little bits come off easily. Then I swipe the hose with an anti-static dryer sheet.
6. This vacuum has a lot of sucking power and has a sliding piece that can be opened or closed depending on how much power you need. I use it for everything - dusting, floors and carpeting. For carpeting, I use it to suck up all the surface hairs then I use my Oreck upright for deeper carpet cleaning. If I don't do this, hair gets wrapped around the wheels of the Oreck and it's a pain to pick them out.
7. The piece that the hose connects to is metal, not plastic, and it can be extended to full length for floors or shortened for dusting.
8. The HEPA filter works great. No more dirt escaping out the back of the vacuum.
9. How the "pet" attachment works is self-evident and no instructions are needed to understand how it works.
10. The bags that this vacuum uses have a flap that covers the hole, so when the bag is full and is taken out to put in the trash, nothing falls out of the bag.
I'm very happy with this vacuum, which I've used almost every day for over five years, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good canister vacuum.
Top international reviews
The small piece that claims to suck pet hair is way too small to be used for the whole apartment and on top of that it only rotates with air suction so if you press down hard into carpet it will stop. So much for getting hair out.
Secondly, the hose is made of plastic and metal and the metal does not stick to the plastic so therefore it's always falling off. It's fallen on my toes a few times already causing pain and even some blood. Third, I wish I had known that the cord did not automatically recoil inward but rather you need to unwrap and wrap yourself. 4th) The fact that this vacuum spews more dust from the back and unsettles the dirt not yet picked up from the back is terribly inconvenient and unhealthy.
Should have gotten the Miele instead.
