Can you stand the interest and excitement?

I like my little Sears canister (it's my second one) but after being in the repair shop for almost 3 weeks I tried to use it today and it quit.  It's still under warranty so I took it back  AGAIN.   I'm afraid of waiting another 2 or 3 weeks to get it back.

I took a deep breath and bought a Dyson canister.  I'm absolutely broke for the rest of the month.

What vacuum do you like?

Nancy , you are so so lucky to have a Dyson.  I hear they are great...My niece has one and sings its praises all the time.  I have an Eureka upright, but I don't use it, my cleaning lady does.  With my arthritis it is nearly impossible to push it around.  I do have a little dirt devil electric broom which works great on hardwood floors.

I have had a Rainbow for the last 14 years, I LOVE IT!  No bags, You put water in the container and it helps with dust, etc.,
good attachments for my use, etc., 

I bought it on credit, because of the high price, and had it paid off in about 8 months, but have been very happy with it.  You can find good refurbished ones of this brand I have heard though!

Thanks Barbara -- I bought the Dyson because of the Dyson praise I've read about the last year or so.  I was/am so concerned by the price.

Hi RoxAnna (pretty name!!) Welcome to VBB .... and thanks for your vac advice.   I desperately need a good vacuum for use at church.  The woman who shares my interest in church tools wants the church to buy a pre-owned Rainbow for me to use.  I'm not in favor of that because of the water container.  My little chuch does not have a water faucet upstairs ..... for water I would have to walk down stairs, down a  l-o-n-g  hall to the kitchen, then back upstairs again.  I could dump water out the front door but ...........

This is such a problem .... so little money, so much need.
I promise I'll quit whining.Embarassed

And RoxAnna -- We have fun here - honest.   It's not a steady whine.  Please tell us about yourself.

I have a old vacuum, can't remember the name of it. Currently we have no carpets in the house. We built this house with our dogs in mind.
My son has a Dyson, he loves it.

I have a Eureka (the boss, pet lover) vacuum.  I like it.  It does a much better job than my last one.  I have a friend who has a Dyson and absolutely loves it.  She's saving up to get the hand held version because she likes it so much.

 Hi NANCY ; We had an ELECTROLUX  Super J Model w W/ rug shampooer & floor polising attachments (for nearly 30 years& it traveled around the country  w/us all those years); no problems, worked quite well all that time.Bags became difficult to obtain:only sold on the other end of town(5 miles away) They kept trying to convince us to buy a new model( why?????????; ours still worked great.The service that cleans our building's hallways uses a small Sears canister; does a great job for them; manybuildings oversevera lyears. Sears also sells bags for our Electrolux; cos tless  & they're less than a mile from our home.While there; to buy bags; we looked at vaccum cleaners; found the one our service uses on sale & got it that day.That was nearly 5 years ago & once assembled has given no trouble since.
Right out of the sealed   carton,  afew parts were mising.Hubby took it back & w/receipt was given a whole new unit in the box. No troubles at all in 5 years, cleaning up after our 2 cats( one long haired)Isn't it interesting, how poor service people  can turn you away from a once loved brand.???Tongue out
Good luckw/your new( very expensive)Dyson.......I heard good things about them; but they'reoutofour league to purchase

I've been playing with that new Dyson today and it is incredible -- absolutely incredible.  I hate housework so I'll never "love" a vacuum cleaner but I sure like this one. 
My little Sears cannister found its own way around corners, the end of a bed and such ... the Dyson doesn't.  It's electrical cord isn't as long!!  But the Dyson picks up stuff I didn't know was there.

We have an electrolux central vac which my husband installed years ago.  It cleans well, except you have to drag the long hose around which can be a pain.  We also have a Hoover upright, which is good.

My son has a Dyson and LOVES it!!!!!!!

Gale -- only my bedroom has carpeting .... the rest is wood (fake wood? very thin wood? treated wood?) and I use a vac on that too.  Sweeping with a broom is impossible here Embarassed ..... these darn cats chase a broom and attack anything swept up.

About the wood flooring ..... working on it for two years I've never once got it clean without streaks.  g-r-r-r-r-r I hate those streaks but at least I'm  finally used to them.

Sears canister vacuum that is very old. Bless his heart, my husband is the vacuumer of the household and I haven't ever heard him complain about it so I guess it's good! ♥

I have requested on several occasions the Purple Animal Dyson 25.  It is over $500. so I keep wishing.  They say its really good when you have pet hair.  I have a secret stash and I WILL BUY ONE FOR MYSELF in a couple of years!  Unless they come out with a riding vacuum with attachments!  LOLCool

Our son suggested I invest in one of the robots vacs.  Yea right!  With my pets they would be bouncing off the wall trying to catch the darn thing!  LOL
