Thread Name: BS: Vacuum Cleaner Recommendations???...
Subject: RE: BS: Vacuum Cleaner Recommendations???...
A friend of a friend is a electrical appliance repair man. He loves Dysons. Repairing them got him a holiday for his family in Barbados last year.

If I had the money and the choosing, I'd go for one of the new Dyson-style cleaners from other companies.

If you are the one who does the most vacuuming, make sure you are the one that goes to purchase the new vacuum cleaner!

And the pull along Dyson that says it sits on stairs? Only if you have stairs with a tread 8" or deeper.

I've used both and I'd say that the pull along is lighter but the upright is easier to empty. I'm a bit concerned about the lack of handles on the pull alongs' dust bucket and the little keel at the bottom that could so easily break if dropped. Emptying the dust bucket on the upright couldn't be easier. Attaching it to the machine again could.
