Best Uses
Comment:
The suction is too strong with no way to adjust the suction when using on carpet.<br /><br />This vacuum got stuck on our new carpet because the suction is to strong. It almost pulled it off the nail strip.<br /><br />The might be great for a shop vac, but not for an upright on new carpet.<br /><br />I am returning this to Sears straight away.

Comment:
This is heavy, it does have a short hose, even with the attachment it's too short. The exhause will blow pet hair to the side sometimes. I would have taken a point away only the price is much better than other vacuum cleaners in it's class. They go on sale frequently.<br /><br />The suction on this machine is incredible. I don't have to go over an area multiple times. You can see the dirt getting drawn in. The tools are easy to use, pet hair attachment is great for couches and such. Cord is nice and long so I don't have to unplug multiple times to go over an area. Great product for a decent price.
