This is a very expensive vacuum. I expected it to act like one. I have only had it for a year. Battery dies very quickly. When it does not suck, it needs to be cleaned out, which is always. This was very much a waste of money. I was having to take it apart and clean it every other time I used it. I spent more cleaning the vacuum than I did my floors. I expected way more from this brand. I will never buy this brand again.
