    Jockbod48 saidNot the newest, hottest, sexiest vacuum, but one of the best in the world. I inherited my grandparents' 1951 Kirby. Trouble free. No bags to replacement bags to buy. Original motor. New cord once. Powerful. Attachments for wood floors and furniture. A great vacuum. Truly - the Rolls Royce of vacuums. You can buy a great used one. The only problem with a Kirby is this: You may have to put in into your will. Yes - they last that long!

    Depends on the size of the place, storage space, and type of cleaning to be done. An upright is best with large carpeted areas and pet hair, not good with bare floors & stairs, and it can take a lot of storage space.

    For our small condo (1300 sq ft) with tile floors throughout, and only accent rugs, we have a little canister that can be carried about easily, and stores away in a small space. It's good for general dusting of all surfaces & counters. The hose can be attached to the exhaust for blowing off the patio, since it's hard to get a broom around the various planters. It also makes a good car vacuum. A stick vacuum can't do those non-floor tasks.

    I asked our cleaning ladies for their input, since they'd be using it a great deal of the time. They recommended an Oreck, which they used for other homes, too, so that's what I got. It's worked fine for several years now. But they're pricey, and I'm sure you can get similar brands for less.

    RoadsterRacer87 saidif you've got lots of carpet i'd swallow it and buy an oreck. you can't beat it. Dysons are flashy cars you park in your driveway. an oreck gets shit done. and if you've got a room with tile just buy a swiffer sweeper vac.


    This is true! I bought an Oreck more than 8 years ago and it's still as good today as it was when I first bought it.

    for myself and my home.Shopping for vacuum cleaners and other things can
    not be rushed.Smart shoppers read about the stuff they are gonna buy before

    Get to a Oreck store and get the oreck upright biggaymachodude. They do have bags but they work great, light weight, and they give you a free tune up every year. They'll set you up good

    My recommendations:

    -General Purpose vacuuming: Sears Wet/Dry Tank Vacuum (Awesome)
    -Household Floor Vacuuming: Dyson (anything except the stupid ball)

    look for a sale on the dysons and they are actually a good deal

    I only use canister vacuums cause of the attachments and the suction power.Although if you are in a Multiple story house the can be a pain.

    Destinharbor saidJust get a Dyson and focus on something else. Life's too short.
    I have a Dyson, but moved into a place with tile floors.

    I personally have a Shark Navigator I purchased for $299.00 about two years ago, and it is WONDERFUL. Not as much as the Dyson, but doesn't lose suction either.

    Cheers,

    I am a clean freak in my apartment, and i HATE baggless vacuums! Its a bunch of bull shit when you open the clear container with all the dust and dirt in it and empty it in the trash. What happens when you dump the shit out into the trash? The dust and dirt poofs into the air! Pissing me off that what was once on the ground is now floating in my air.... Hate them. Thats why i love the old fashion bag ones icon_wink.gif

    You're hot as fuck and I'd love to do you in a parking lot or airport restroom or behind a dumpster at 3am; but there's no fucking way I could ever be in your house if you're that much of a clean freak.

    That's just fucking INSANE! icon_lol.gif
