Rated 2 out of 5Â by momtoboys suction just not great
I wanted to like this vacuum as I was replacing a fairly new canister and didn't want to spend that much again. On the plus side, the small cleaning head made it easy to quickly clean around toys and furniture in my son's rooms. But the lack of suction made it take way too long to clean in the long run. It works terribly on very low pile area rugs and ok on the hardwoods, but I still had to go over little things multiple times on the hardwoods. It's not bad on the shoulder to carry, but I wore the strap cross body to keep the unit from sliding forward when I bent down to clean. The long cord is another plus. I would recommend it only as a second vacuum if you want to do an OK job quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dick51 Best vacuum ever!
I have an old Portapower QS that my mother gave me when I went away to college 43 years ago, I don't know how long she'd had it before she gave it to me. Â It's still going strong! Â We had contractors replace some windows and they raved about it, saying it beat the heck out of a shop vac! Â Congratulations on creating a superb product. Â You obviously forgot to include planned obsolescence in your design ;o)

This is my second unit. The first is a model -S1049, that I purchased over30 years ago. I still is an excellent machine, but the plastic is getting brittle so I replaced it wiyh the newer model. If I get h as lf the usage out of this machine that I did the previous one I will be more that satisfied.
I have tile floors and a cat, so I'm always vacuming litter or cat hair. An upright just spread the litter around. Also, with this machine I can attach the hose at the exhaust as nd use it as a blower on my sidewalks and patio.
Any score less than excellent does not show the versatility of the machine.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by dk12390 fair vacuum, bag difficult to clean
I was really looking forward to getting this vacuum, although it picks up most dirt from hard surface with repeated swipes over the same area...it's not the "commercial" quality i was expecting. The bag is a mess to empty, a lot of dirt gets stuck under the rubber lip of the bag. Disposable bags may avoid this problem. Floor attachment has a wide head but the suction area is only a few inches...unfortunately i wouldn't recommend anyone purchase this vacuum.
