Comment:
Great for using on the stairs with brushes on and using the crevice tool. Also easy to use under computer desk to clean up dust and occasional animal fur from around power cords. The unit is well balanced and easy to carry, which is helpful at 5.5 pounds. Stores away easily. The 3 foot hose is useful in most cases, but it would be nice if additional attachments (extension tool, brush attachment, etc.) were made available to purchase separately. The 20 foot power cord is a great feature and easily wraps around the base for storage.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Use to clean carpeted stairs and furniture, in particular cat fur. Between the power brush and the crevice tool attachment, it works fantastic to remove all dirt and grit, even in tight corners. Amazing how much and easily it pulls up the fur and dirt. Great investment.
