Rated 5 out of 5 by Basset mom 75 Excellent Vacuum For Pet Owners
I have had this vacuum almost two years and love it. I volunteer with rescue so I have my two dogs and up to two fosters, all high shed dogs. I have to vacuum at least two to three times a week and it does an excellent job picking up the pet hair and dander. It also does a better job than my standard vacuum ( different brand) which I only use now for the extensions to clean under and behind furniture I can't move. I do abuse the machine picking it up by the handle to vacuum the couches and chairs. It works great on my area rugs. I do need to empty the canister multiple times during a use, which shows it is doing its job. You also need keep the filters clean, I bought an extra set which I clean and alternate weekly. My only wish would be a longer cord and maybe a larger canister but neither are deal breakers since it does such a good job.

I have purchased MANY of these PowerEdge vacuums and the last two have had loose handles. The design is flawed! They lose suction after a few months. They used to be really really good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chy Finally a stick vacuum that gets the job done!
I don't know how anyone isn't loving this vacuum. I have a corgi/lab mix that sheds huge tumbleweeds of hair pretty much all year round, and a cat that spills it's food and tracks litter. This vacuum takes care of it all. Yes, it requires maintenance, as in you have to clean it after you use it -- it's common sense. You can't vacuum up hair and debris without regularly cleaning the filter or cup and then be surprised if the machine isn't performing properly, particularly if you have high shedding animals.
The air does blow from the top of the vacuum head, but when you recline the handle to actually use the vacuum, it's not a problem. If I absolutely had to pick one thing I that I would change, I guess I'd agree with others that the cord is too short, although it seems to be about as long as other stick vacuums. It's not a deal breaker for me. I'm thrilled to have something that is actually taking care of business as promised.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jaydub12 Worst vacuum I've ever owned!
Worst vacuum I've ever owned! I have a beagle and all hardwood floors in my home. I clean my floors once a week, however, after three months of using this piece of junk I'm ready to take it out in the yard and smash it into a million pieces. I can't get through my hallway without this vacuum clogging up. I spend more time unclogging the thing than I do cleaning. I'm going out today to buy a new vaccuum

this is a inexpensive vacuum that works great. We have a lot of dogs and a few cats and we use this every day. Picks up all the dog and cat hair. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because after about a year the wheels start to bend in and get stuck in the wheel well and makes it hard to push. This is a design flaw. The wheel pins need to be reinforced. With that being said customer service has always honored the warranty and sends out a new lower unit free of charge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by curlboy55 poor design
do not waste your money if you are looking for something to pick up pet hair on a hard floor. The exhaust is in the front and blows really hard! as soon as you get close to a wall or under a coffee table the air coming out blows the hair everywhere!!! so instead of cleaning up the hair i cannot stand i just blew it all over the house!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DelNorte A Great Buy!
I purchased this vacuum with the hope that it would be everything I needed so I didn't have to purchase a vacuum 10 times more expensive that everyone said I just had to have. I'm SO glad I bought this first! It is small, lightweight, and does a wonderful job on my floors. We have all tile floors with deep grout and three large, mud-tracking dogs--including a super hairy German shepherd--and this vacuum grabs everything my house throws at it. I'm so happy I bought it.
If I were nitpicking, I would say it needs a longer cord and a hand tool, but it's great even without those.
I've had this vacuum a month and love it. My husband is probably sick of me saying how happy I am I bought it, but it really does make my life easier. If you're looking for a great, affordable vacuum for hard floors and lots of pets, this one is for you!

I researched bare floor vacuums for weeks before deciding on this little guy. I've been impressed with it's ability to maneuver around all the obstacles on my first floor - bar stools, tables, plant, rugs, etc. I haven't had any issues with it spitting up and debris or not picking it up at all. I have a friend who said hers won't pick up pine needles that her dog drags in, but I don't have any pine trees in my yard so I can't confirm. This little guy has effectively and efficiently picked up everything from food crumbs after dinner parties to dog hair and leaves left behind from my fern. I have no complaints!
