  • I love my Kirby. You can talk them down to 700.
    I have several friends with a Dyson that they love too.

  • I love my blue Bissell bag less. It was cheap and sucks everything up from dirt, dust, dog fur, everything. It also only cost us $30.

  • Bissell has been my favorite vacuums. Right now I have the Pet Eraser Bissell and I LOVE it! It has great suction and a lot of accessories.

  • I Suggest a  Riccar,  I like mine and a plus is its American made. I also have a Eureka Boss that I like very much.

  • I love my Dyson ball. I know it's expensive - but I have 5 kids and hardwood floors. I was never happy with sweeping them with a broom, it seemed like they were never clean enough. The thing is amazing; it works great on the hardwood as well as my rugs. I was shocked the first time I used it, it picked up a LOT of dirt!

  • I have a RICCAR also I highly recommend it it is a little pricy but it vacuums from the bottom of the carpet oppose to those other vacuums that only vacuum from the top only of the carpet. GL

  • I have an Electrolux Canister vac and it has been great and has not damaged my carpets at all like other vacuums have. I've been using it for 17 years now.

  • We've used Bissells with our carpet cleaning business, but they wear out quickly for us, lol. BUT QVC has one by LG called the Kompactor and it's an awesome vacuum.

  • Hoover Windtunnel WITH BAG all the way!!! I had a horrible Eureka Pet Lovers bagless before my Hoover and it was TERRIBLE! It had like 10 different places it would get clogged and I would spend more time unclogging the thing than I would vacumming. Then, whenever I would go to empty the canister, the dust and dirt would fly everywhere and seriously aggravate my allergies. The Hoover Wintunnel is awesome! It sucks the carpet right off the floor and goes smoothly from carpet to hard floors.
