Comment:
This vacuum cleaner has extreme suction.The front blows out air, that pushes away what you are trying to vacuum up. The hose is so short or tight that <br />i cannot get the spider webs in the corners. It causes the vacuum to fall over, that alone is the most frustrating. You are not able to get into any corners or under any furniture. It is bulky heavy and hard to store.

Comment:
Was searching for a new vacuum to replace a dying canister Progressive vacuum that used bags. Then it died and had to bite the bullet and choose. I chose the shark rotator professional lift away. Bought it at a retail store. Got my 20% off with coupon. Price was great. Under 200. It came with some attachments, but i needed more. So i placed an order on the phone with the Shark people, and customer service was excellent. And shipped immediately. So i ended up paying about 300 for the machine and all the attachments. I could not be happier! I cant believe how great the suction is! The hard floor and duster with the microfiber cloth attached gets right up to the edges everywhere, and the lift away with the turbo brush, my carpeted stairs have never looked so good. And easy! No more canister rolling down the stairs and taking me with it!
