1-11-2014 - I have owned this Mighty Mite Canister Vacuum for 20 years. I have used it multiple times a week on hardwood floors, kitchen floors, bathroom floors, walls, ceilings, ceiling fans, a wood stove, our brick hearth, spiders/spider webs, inside linen cupboards, inside cars, on furniture, in the fireplace, on the front porch and back patio. I virtually use it everywhere I need to remove dirt, dust and debris. I have used it in multiple homes. When I have used it in the fireplace or the wood stove (when all ashes are cold), I clean the vacuum head so I don't get ashes anywhere else. The bags are easy to remove and easy to find to buy. I do not have pets. I bought a soft boar bristle brush attachment and use it to dust furniture or paintings on the wall. I have never had it repaired. The suction is 12 amps which is EXCELLENT. I can put the wand/vacuum head on the floor and see it suck up dirt or spilled sugar from about 1-2 inches away. It's still that powerful even after 19 years. I am just now having to replace the hose because it has gotten cracks in it reducing the suction power. It is easy to clean the filter. The vacuum wand is easily maneuvered to get under furniture and beds, into corners and next to the refrigerator. The vacuum head has a very low profile so it fits under just about everything. A couple of times it seemed like the vacuum was broken because of a loss/decrease in suction but it was just that the hose was clogged. This was easily fixed by detaching it from the canister and shoving a broom handle through the hose to knock the debris out (this was usually pine needles from the Christmas Tree).
