  • We have a Dyson and love it. The first day we had it my hubby used it to pick up pine needles from the Christmas tree and it got them in one runover instead of taking several runovers(like with our old one). Funny thing was DH accidentally dumped the bucket onto the floor so we had a pile of pine needles about 2 inches high. Again, it only took one runover for the vacuum to get them all.

  • We have a kirby, it was expensive but totally worth it. We have 2 big dogs so I have to vacuum daily and it really cleans up for me. I love it.

  • We have a Dyson, too, and I love it. There is a smaller more lightweight one that wasn't out yet, when we got ours, and if I were to do again, I'd get the smaller one. Mostly because I don't really vacuum all that often due to now having hardwood floors.
