I will preface by saying that I rarely leave reviews or products, however, this vacuum cleaner is the best machine ever. If you are looking for a lightweight, backpack, vacuum, that is extremely powerful this is the one. I own a house cleaning company and clean upwards of 10 houses a day, and this is by far the best vacuum that I have found. To start I don’t know how it just collects so much fine dust- I will finish cleaning a seemingly clean house and my the time I leave the container(and filter) will be full of very fine light brown dust like baking powder consistency, a level of deep cleaning that no other vacuum has ever acheived for me. I have tried many canister vacuums from Miele and backpack vacuums from pro team and comfort pro but none close to the level of this vacuum. Other backpack vacuums are heavy and they are not as absorbent. I have found others absorb, bigger pieces of debris, but not this find dust that I’m telling you about. We’re also surprises me about this vacuum is the fact that is it is so light weight! My daughter and I are 5’4 women and this is perfect for us, we had tried other backpack vacuums, because we were tired of rolling around the canisters, but the other ones were too heavy. What really made this is the best vacuum for me was the fact that it has the great carpet attachment, veryyy similar to the Miele premium C3 carpet vacuum attachment, which costs $300 alone.
A couple of cons-
I was used to having the other vacuums that were extremely extremely durable that I could just throw them around, and nothing would happen, however, the plastic parts in the body are slightly more delicate than others- We started hanging them in the van etc. if you treat them well they will last perfectly fine . At first, I did break a couple parts however, like I said, emailed customer service and they quickly reached back and sent replacement items at no cost. I have never had such a great experience with customer service.
Another thing that I struggled a little bit with in the beginning was that when I wanted to switch the attachments between the floor and the carpet, there’s a little wire that connects to the carpet attachment, and when I would remove it sometimes it would get stuck to the carpet attachment and the wire/ chord would come out so when I wanted to put it back onto the carpet attachment after I was done using it on the floor you can’t because the chord isn’t in the pole correctly. (Wire only connects to carpet attachment) I reached out to customer service about this and they sent me a replacement telescoping one and it would still happen, but what I have since figured out is easier for me is that when I need to switch between the floor and carpet attachments, I will just switch the polls with the carpet and for attachments connected already since I have two poles now, making it very easy to just switch the poles from the top.
One of them negative reviews I saw online before purchasing this vacuum was that the filter gets clogged with all of the fine dust, that it collects, as I previously mentioned. This is true- since it does such a good job it gets so much dust of course most of it goes to the canister. However, a lot of it gets stuck in the filter and if you go long time without cleaning it out, it will not be as powerful. That said, since it’s a fan filter it’s kind of difficult to get all of that fine dust out of there so what I found was the best solution to this is I purchased pool filters covers that look like white socks on Amazon “reusable pool socks for skimmer baskets” and I put it on the filter in the vacuum. After each house that I finish cleaning, I just replace that sock with another clean one very easy and that way the filter inside is still clean for the most part. And this has worked very good for me I can I bought a 100 pack of these for $20 on Amazon and I can wash them at the end of the day or once I finish them all dry them and reuse them.
That is the only thing that I understand might be inconvenient for some people but for me is not a problem given the potency of this vacuum. There’s room for improvement with those couple things I mentioned, but not a problem for me at all given all things considered.
It’s very easy to use. I will say, you have to be careful when you’re using the carpet attachment since it is so so so strong it will even start to chew up the cord if you aren’t careful, I’m telling you I’ve never seen anything like this.
Very easy to just empty the canister once it’s full or whenever you want, and I love the fact that I don’t have to spend on bags and things like that especially since I would go through so many when cleaning hundreds of houses.
This is an incredibly engineered vacuum. I have since bought a second vacuum and I know I will continue to buy more as well.
