Bought the Dirt Devil - Power Reach Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Canister vacuum six months ago and love it. Lightweight, powerful, easy to empty (no more bags), with a very handy on/off switch on the handle for the beater bar. I took a chance, after ready mixed reviews, and am so glad that I bought it for our home. It was on sale at Canadian Tire as well. Suggestion: Buy a separate broad vacuum bar and soft brush duster from a vacuum supply shop (make sure to bring in your hose handle to size). Each attachment will cost around $18 CAN, but it's well worth it, to add to the basic accessories already supplied. The power beater bar is sturdy, and cleans well, even on shag. The handy head light and telescopic stem are also cool features. Thank you Dirt Devil for making vacuuming fun!
