I am in need of a good vacuum cleaner. The one I have is okay, but I really need one that has great suction. Mine doesn't really pull up the pile on my carpet. It always looks flat and walked on. About 10 years ago, before I moved in with my brother, I had a great vacuum. I got it off of the HSN website so I could make payments on it and for the life of me, I can't even remember what brand it was. So, I need your advice. What kind of vacuum cleaner do you have?

I have 3 cordless Dyson animal stick vacs. I love them. Super suction and light enough to lift over your head for corners

3 of them? Really? Is it one for each floor?

@marlina lol No I have one in Florida too, I do have a tri-level house and I do need one more for the middle floor. It is just so much more convenient to have one on each floor. I have thought about getting the shark cordless but I am not sure it is anywhere near as powerful as my Dyson. I think I need to get one for the cottage in PA too lol I do love them.

The Shark™ line of vacuums work very good. They have a high speed rollerbrush and a LOT of suction. It's been my preferred type for quite some time now.

Do they last a while? It seems like the vacuums my brother bought would always wear out in a year. He never had a Shark though. Thanks!

With having pets I have been using the shark vacuums. They seem to do great.

I would love a Dyson but they are so expensive. I may look on one of the shopping networks and see if they have any. That way I could pay on it monthly.

@simone10 I shop around and look for sales. They are well worth the money. And there are others out there. I use a Shark for my pet vacuum. A hand held one that is good too.

I cannot recommend the one that I have, although we do like it, but they are no longer sold. We have a kenmore, and Sears is long gone closed now. I hope that you get some good suggestions.

@simone10 My first kenmore, which was a top of the line model, lasted me 24 years. I am hoping for another 24 years on the current model, we are about a third of the way into that total.

I'm still trying to decide. I've always wanted a Dyson but really hate to part with the money. I still haven't decided.

@simone10 Yes, it does. I bought it specifically because it said it would pick up dog hair. I've had it for years. It cost me $20 at the time.

@simone10 I cannot remember what kind I have. It is ok. I really do not use it now. Maybe you can check some online and see if there is one you may like.

@simone10 I can understand that. Sometimes when I check information online it just is too much and so I get off because it does not help me.

Well, I have tried a lot of battery operated vacuum cleaners and they wore out after one year, even the Dyson vacuum cleaner. I like a good upright vacuum cleaner like Eureka. The ones with canisters are easier to empty the contents but I think the vacuum cleaners with bags do a great job too.

I have a Hoover. Check Consumer Reports. They list some great vacuums. You might be able to get issues at your library.

I'm like you. They are still too expensive even though they have been on the market for a while.

My husband and I have an eltrolux. I am not sure if they really make them, anymore. But, I am sure you'll find something you like. It's amazing what can hide in a carpet. My husband is so grateful we just have an area rug in our living room. because the rest of the house is tile. He never thought he'd like tile, but we bought this house anyway and now he loves it.
