Could use help, with a vacuum. - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Think about it in terms of price divided by how long you'll have it for. My parents bought a 500 dollar vacuum cleaner that looks like it was from 1930. It's been around for the last 9 years, and the only service we've had to do on it is getting the power button replaced. That too cost abotu 15 bucks out the door.

I've heard nothing but good about dyson vacuums. I dunno how good they actually are vs how much is just rumor. You can also check consumer reports and amazon's ratings.

Got a Sebo X4 at my place as well. I thought it was ludicrous to spend anywhere close to that on a vacuum but with how well it works and how long it's been going without any issues (must be 6 or so years now, IIRC), it's really a great deal. It sees use at least once a week, because I like to keep the house clean and we have a dog on top of that. We got ours for about $600 from a local vacuum place. I definitely agree with music_man, you should strongly consider this vacuum.

Theres so many brands and theres always someone who says, well for the price i think this is better. Im more confused then a person using ibuds. In reference to sebo, again id really prefer to stay under 500$, 600 i just dont think itll happen.

For that price you might as buy a lower end industrial vacuum, which should destroy any consumer model anyway. But if you must stay under $500 the DC28 is pretty beastly and one of the attachments has a tiny plastic turbo biggrin.gif.

We've had a Kirby for over 10 years. Truly the last vacuum you will ever need to buy. 

It's expensive, heavy, but a real beast.

Killed off a generic Hoover about every year & a half prior to that.

You can negotiate those sales guys down easily, wait till the demo is all packed up then make them a nice low offer.

They'll bite.

I have had my DC-25 Dyson for a year and I have zero complaints it works better than the Hoover,Dirt Devil and Bissell we had and the ball makes gliding around a breeze plus it does not scuff hard wood floors the thing that amazes me is how much dirt this thing picks up compared to what I had you will be emptying it more than your other vacuums.

So far the reviews on the Miele S7 twist seem quite nice. 

post #23 of 27

Miele by leaps and bounds. It's German. Need I say more. No, I don't. 

 

I put my Dyson in a burlap sack and threw it the Mississippi.

I have a Miele. When replacement time comes, its a no brainer.

i have a dyson, its one of the original DC01's.  it was my parents but my mother managed to break the wand and a wheel yot when she bought a new one it got abandoned onder the stars and forgotten about.  when a moved about 6 years ago i realised i needed a hoover and thought id steel it until i bought one. 

 

i ended up hitting ebay and getting a now wheel and wand and the thing is still going strong.  the thing is ancient yet goes great.

From what i read on the reviews, people who bought the dc01, then bought say a dc28, were sadly disapointed and were saying the dc01 was better. Maybe dyson used to be good, then once got consumers to like their stuff started to cheapen out?

Not sure what the complaint is about the new ones but each model that they improved has had more suction and maneuverability which in my book makes it better to do a job I don't like while making it lighter so the wife does not complain when she has to use it. To each there own but I generally take care of my equipment never had any of the vacuums I owned

fall apart they simple just did not get up all the dirt and dust with the exception of the Kirby but that thing was cumbersome and heavy must be why the wife stuck me with that duty years ago not to mention the Dyson seems to have a lower noise level.
