Customer Reviews

Canister Vacuum with OptiFlow Technology is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Above vacuum Suction good--not as long of hose as old Kenmore, but, luckily it fit onto new one. However, the carpet adjustment is faulty in that it was still hard to push on my very low, well-worn carpets. This is said after moving it to "high." Perhaps it is just faulty, as my older Kenmore I set the adjustment to "x-low" on these carpets. This does not make sense. We are returning to our local store, which is a great convenience & why I ordered (for lst time) vac online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sturdy vacumm cleaner It replaces a vacuum cleaner that we had for several years and has strong suction and all the same attachments on the previous vacuum cleaner. It is easy to operate and more quiet than our previous one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't do a very good job It is heavy to propel have to drag it around. It is poorly balanced and falls over when trying to store. It does not pick-up cat hair very well, suction is not strong. Not pleased or happy.
