Lets face it people. A vacuum is an expensive investment as far as cleaning equipment goes. We all have our favorites and I've owned many different brands. I struggled with lugging heavy equipment up and down stairs. I've dealt with bag leaks and explosions. I've lived through not having a replacement bag and clogs that can not be cleared without taking the whole vacuum apart. To be honest I never liked any vacuum until I bought a Shark.
I make no endorsement or apologies. This vacuum has consistently worked best for me. It's lightweight relatively inexpensive and can be broken down easily for cleaning. The hepa filters can be washed with warm soapy water (air dried) then put right back into the machine. There are a lot of standard attachments and clogs are easy to remove for both the novice and professional. It has a dirt cup so there's no need to invest in bags. It can be emptied and cleaned after every use.
