What Brand or type of Vaccum Cleaner is the best to buy?

It seems that everytime I buy a new vacuum cleaner it loses its pick-up and suctioning power very quickly.

  • Dyson, hands down! We were going through a vacuum a year until I bought our Dyson. We have had it for over 5 years and it still has the same strong suction it had when it was new.

  • kirby is much better than dyson, but it costs even more. so if cost is a factor you could go with the dyson, but if you have the extra money you could go with a kirby (and btw the motor has a 30 year warranty, so you know you're in it for the long haul lol). dyson costs $300-500 and kirby over a thousand. but i will add i traded in my dyson for a kirby ;)

  • I have an Oreck and love it! I have had for 6 years and it works like it did from day 1. We paid $200 for it.

  • Dyson. I used to work for Kirby. I would never sink that much money into a vacuum. I got my Dyson on clearance at target & paid under $300 for it. Best vacuum I ever owned. The only other brand I would every buy would be a Kenmore. I had a Kenmore canister vac for over 15 yrs that worked really well. But by far my Dyson has been the best overall.

  • I just bought a Bissell so far I like it. If I could of afforded a Dyson I would have bought that other then that my Windtunnel lasted me for 8 years. Hubby says I'm hard on vacs. I just think he doesn't know the difference since his ex never cleaned house.

  • I have 3 Kirby's. Love them! They are expensive, but check your resale shops. The last one I bought for upstairs I got at a resale shop for $120. That included attachments & the shampooer. Never loses suction. I get it near a hair ball & it sucks it right up. I'll never use another brand.
