So, when the old Rainbow finally died, I had no choice but dig out the even older Kirby. Kirbys are bad, I used to sell them. I mean, how many vacuums let you clean up after you paint your car, with the same machine? Seriously, does anyone really need a spray-painting attachment for their vacuum? But, Kirbys are still powerful machines, right? Well, all I can say is this machine picked up TONS of pet hair after the Kirby, running over the same spot. And it weighs about as much as the Kirbys box. Somebody at Goodwill is about to score, bye-bye Kirby.
