Comment:
I bought this about a years ago for use on wall to wall carpet. The suction is very good, however, the vacuum is so heavy that it is cumbersome to use. The attachment hose frequently disconnects and the rotating brush falls apart. Not recommended.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought this vacuum cleaner based on Consumer Report Reviews. The vacuum cleaner is ridiculously loud and very heavy. It's not easy to push around. Also, the tools are not that easy to use and don't snap on very well. They come apart as you're using them - very frustrating. If you have back issues, I do not recommend buying this vacuum cleaner. Wish I could take it back for a refund.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
If you want to clean carpet or bare floors, or need suction for attachments, this is your machine. Want something wimpy with minimal suction, look elsewhere. Simple, straight through suction path, effective bag and HEPA filters make this a great buy.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
