Comment:
The suction power is very good. I have 3 dogs and it does a very good job picking up the dog hair. However, it is very heavy and difficult to maneuver. No power drive. I definitely DO NOT recommend it if you have to take it up and down stairs. The attachments are awkward to use and the brackets that hold the attachments break easily. It is difficult to replace the bags and then close the door.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Within a year of purchase the hose, which just loops over the back, had stretched out of shape and was constantly falling off and I am surprised that CR did not do tests that revealed this design flaw. I have a bungee cord around it to keep the cord in place. Now it needs to be reset every time for the agitator/suction to work. Rats! I missed trash day-but that is where it is headed next week. I will try something else.
