Comment:
I purchased this based on CR recommendation. I have been completely disappointed in this canister vacuum. It doesn't work on carpets at all; blows dust out of the agitator head when used on carpet no matter the height setting, only the brush motor comes on when used on carpet setting. The canister motor comes on for bare floor setting. I feel that both motors should be used for carpets. I do not recommend this vacuum to anyone. I am returning it to the store.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

this is a nice looking cleaner; lighted clean green light and red lighted dirt area is nice feature but changing out the attachments is work. The basic Tile/wood floor attachment length is short. for the money not a value.

Comment:
While the vacuum works well, hence the good CU reports, it doesn't last very long for a $400-500. appliance. The motor went after about 4 years, and my husband, replaced it. We also replaced the PowerMate. Now in year 6, the whole thing died because of the poor quality of the connections on the handle, and the arcing that takes place because of that. If we didn't fix things and replace parts, it would have been a 4 year vacuum. This is the second, and last time I will purchase a vacuum from Sears.
