After Consumers Report, Moemg, try, then put "expert advice vacuum cleaners" in your address bar and see what pops up just for a double-check; but, frankly, cute fuzzy bunny has just about covered it thoroughly and well it seems.

Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

I have this one too. Our floors are wood with area rugs. It is excellent on both. The only down side is the need to empty the cannister a lot. I do it after every time I vacuum.


No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA

Thanks CFB for the CR list. I'm looking for a canister vac for a small carpeted apartment with a cat. I'd like to mitigate my friends' cat allergy symptoms when they stay over. So far I've tried to find the Kenmore progressive canister, and there's no "progressive" listed for canisters, even on Kenmore's site. Does anyone have a link or model number they could share?

I notice there's also a Hoover windtunnel bagged canister, but is there a reason the bagless one listed in CR would be better? I read up a little on bagless vs bagged and so far I lean toward the bagged, but am open to changing my mind.

It was a 25614, which sears no longer sells. The price was $350 and they do have a $350 cannister on sale for $299, but the ratings look just fair.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Thanks everybody for your suggestions . I went with a Hoover bagless cannister . The price was right and it has had good reviews . It took me awhile to make my decision since I've been away taking care of my Mother and I also had to get over the Dyson hype . I'm happy with my choice and I'll just move my extra vacuum upstairs .
