Comment:
This is a great vacuum for baby boomers. Over my many years I've used many top-brand vacuums but none that can match my SEBO Felix 2. It's so quiet, I no longer have to use ear protection. The canister is very easy to use and not heavy or awkward. I feel like I have the best of two worlds. A very good canister and lightweight, maneuverable upright. We have a long-haired cat and a Bernese Mtn. Dog so pet hair was a problem until I got the SEBO. It sucks up pet hair, clumps and all with ease. The attachments are easy to change out even for someone of advanced age. The vacuum is easy to adjust for thick carpeting and both the powerhead and the parquet brush are awesome for hardwood floors. No spitting dirt pieces around. The SEBO is highly recommended for people with asthma, like me, and I can really tell the difference. It has all kinds of filters and allows no emissions. The SEBO is the smartest purchase I've made in years. Should have done it years ago. Got it and extras for 25% off. A very good investment as far as I am concerned.

Comment:
I read all the reviews and now, after almost a year, I am convinced the Sebo was the right purchase for me. <br /><br />Prior to my purchase I borrowed a friend's canister Miele and, so far as I can tell, the Sebo is lighter, easier to maneuver, better on stairs, and cleans just as well. All that, for ~$300 less.<br /><br />Yes, I agree with some reviews that it is a little difficult to maneuver on thicker-pile carpet, and the body of it does get warm while in use. However, these I am happy to put up with those because it is so much lighter and easier to deal with than the Miele.<br /><br />The hardwood floor attachment makes cleaning hardwoods and tile an absolute breeze! The smaller brush attachment is perfect for stairs.<br /><br />In the end, I am very happy I made this purchase.

Comment:
I love my Sebo because it is so versatile. It comes apart easily and goes together easily. You can even detach the long handle to do the stairs or while cleaning ceiling fans. This feature also comes in handy for cleaning your vehicle.
