Anyone have any recommendations for the next victim?
You mean next wife, or next vacuum?
It has been my experience (both personal and professional: I know a repair man) that most often the demise of vacuum cleaners is having the carpet level set too low.
People think that will make it "clean better", but all it does is not provide enough stand off distance to allow the vacuum created by the suction to work....AND burn out motors, belts, brushes, etc.
I have a Dyson Animal and it's awesome. if you have pets. They're definitely worth the premium you pay for them.
I have a Miele standard tank model. It has served me well for 8 years now. Of course there is not any women around to abuse it.
i know someone who has a Raibow and loves it. But it all depends on what you want to spend. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL6FsyC1wro&feature=fvw turn up the volume!!!
I hope I don't get my mancard swiped for posting a vacume video on GT
Hoover Wind Tunnel. Bagless. Good buy rated from consumer reports. "Great Vacuum" from Wife Reports
Dyson. I have The Animal and it is awesome!!!
I'll keep the wife. She's a goo one. She puts up with me.
Mine, tell her I'll even have lemonade for her when she's done killing my Hoover in my house.
Killed one already. Then she took on The Boss SmartVac by Eureka...and it just died.
Another vote for Dyson.
Oreck, at least the older ones were good stuff.
We got a higher end bagless Kenmore unit a few years back. She's tried to kill it by leaving off the filter and such but it seems to have enough safety features that it won't blow itself up before I'm called to fix it. And the fix is usually easy.
Agreed. You will be amazed at what this picks up that other vacs leave behind.
Kirbys are bullet-proof.
I agree, the GOO ones ARE more fun!!!
Love those typos.
Look at an inexpensive to buy and repair Eureka upright for $130.00 at Sam's. Might spend $160.00 retail and get a small light canister as well for the stairs if needed. Both are light weight and well built. These are what professional cleaners use for a reason. The fancy expensive ones are all plastic like the Dyson and are light duty. Also alot of them are very heavy to lug around even though they are capable of muliple jobs even if you never use those features like the Rainbow. Think about your wife having to tote those upo the stairs. She will thank you for simplicity.
