Comment:
I thought this was going to be a great vacuum based on the review from CR. It is not. I found that steering the brush head was difficult because the joint where the wand attaches to the brush head turns, but the head doesn't - strange. It is heavy, making it hard to pull around. The hose is almost too long, and the handle is buky. It is very noisy. Also, the case and the cord got very hot after a very few minutes of use.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This is really a Panasonic. Sears continues to confuse with different model and part numbers for everything like brushes and bags which makes comparison shopping difficult. Old tools you may have left over do not fit into the proprietary end of the wand. Suction is very good and quite adjustable, both bare floor and carpet. Crevice tool is short and tip is narrow. Wheels roll OK. Handle is comfortable.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
