Vacuum Cleaner?

Can anyone recommend a light-weight but good vacuum cleaner? I have arthritis in my hands and the one we have now is just too heavy for me.

  • Oreck is what I bought. It very lightweight and does a great job.

  • I just got a Dyson because it was way lighter than my other vacuum - and I love it. Oreck might be your best bet though. They had them on sale at Target recently.

  • Kirby is NOT light wieght! I have on, I love it, but would not recommend it to you cause it is heavy. I think Orecks are light, if I remember right. My sister has one and loves it.

  • We got a Nanolite in Wal-Mart by Hoover. It is light weight and picks up a lot better than our last vacuum cleaner. It was also approved by General Housekeeping.
