Everyone in my family thinks we are crazy for sending this much money on a vacuum. I love cleaning so my husband made this purchase for me and I'm in love! The suction this vacuum has is unheard of! I used to think my carpet was clean, but it wasn't. I vacuumed my house the day before buying this, vacuumed it the day I got this and it picked up so much dirt and dog hair it was unreal! I love the attachments it comes with, the stair attachment is my favorite. It really gets into the spots I never could get with just the normal one. I love love love this vacuum. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you have a dog!
