Default Vacuums, what do I need to know

I absolutely hate our dyson, so I may or may not be in the market for a new vacuum. I have pets and a wife who sheds hair like a dog so hair pickup is important. The auto floor adjust is nice but not a deal breaker. What have you guys had luck with? And yes I vacuum, believe it or not but my house is kept clean.

Hoover Pet model.

Adjustable brush height, easy to clean canister with both a washable filter and HEPA filter. Does a great job.

You can't afford a cleaning service with all your reverse mortgage money?

And I disagree. We went through a variety of crummy vacuums over the years. Years back the wife went to a vacuum store and bought one that has held up and worked well for years. I don't remember what it is and I'm watching football so I'm not gonna go look. LOL It's a traditional upright bagger that we paid over $500 for at least 10 years ago. She has taken it in a couple times for a tune up but it's been worth it.

I love our riccar, ive been told meile (sp) are good too. Dysons are shit, gotta spend some coin to get something nice. Go to a vacuum store. We have mostly hardwood floors but we also have a husky (had 2) and the carpeted rooms and rugs come clean with one easy pass. Had it for at least 3 years and zero issues. Cord recoil isnt as snappy as it was new but giben how we treat it i am suprised it still works at all

We have 2 dogs and absolutely love our shark. Have several friends that also have sharks. We switched from a dyson to a Kirby then the shark. Love it. Light, cheap, and it sucks!

We stock the Hoover brand Vacuums at work. We also sell belts and bags for most other brands. I get customers in all the time looking for replacements because the big stores like to sell you the vac but change make/models the next year.
I just bought this model for the wife. Are old windtunnel was twelve years old.

My old lady is an absolute neatfreak, bought some German vacuum for more than I paid for my first car. we had to have it serviced once, and the vacuum shop guy creamed himself when he saw it.

It's super quiet, that's all I really know.

I can look in the closet if you want to see what kind it is.

I can't believe no one said it yet. What do you need to know? Lube the penis before you put it in the hose.


Meh I have an animal Dyson, it works better then anything else we have had. The cord is way too short though.
