I researched the best handheld vacuum's when I was looking for something to use to clean my car. I decided to give this one a try and couldn't be happier with my decision.<br />I am a normal sized female and have no problem with the weight of the vacuum, at least in the amount of time it takes to vacuum my car. <br />This machine has cleared out ashes, hair, sand, pebbles and ground in dirt from the carpet and mats in my car.<br />It has a built in attachment that fits and suctions everywhere you need it to, including the small spaces between your seat and the doors.<br />I also use this machine on my carpeted stairs in our house. There is a risor visor so you can vacuum the carpeted stairs that are angled vertically.<br />Amazing vacuum and a decision I have not regretted!

I want my old vacuum back!
Short Power Cord
This thing is horrible! I do not understand the good reviews. After 10 minutes the dumb thing overheated and turned itself off and wouldn't turn back on for 30 minutes. The dust container wasn't even half full! Who has that kind of time to wait? The cord is very short. The bottom of the vacuum is very poorly designed. It has a strange angled bottom that digs into the ground that makes it hard to push the vacuum back and forth over the carpet. The vacuum is also quite heavy. I want my old dirt devil back that I had for 10 years that fell off the moving truck. It was wonderful in all respects. This vacuum is going back to the store!

Great portable vacuum
Easy To Empty
Easy to Use
Long Power Cord
This is a great little vac. The suction is great. I was amazed at the amount of pet hair it removed from a recliner. Corded beats the heck out of a battery.
