Rated 4 out of 5Â by S.D. Steel Canister Vacuum
I am happy with my purchase of the Steel Canister Vacuum. I like that it is USA made.
It allows me to clean in hard to reach places and under furniture. The canister follows me around easily - I do have to guide it around corners - but it moves easily.
Being able to remove the cleaning tool from the extension wand makes it quick and easy to get around ceilings and areas where cobweb and dust bunnies like to gather.
The vacuum seems to pick up well and is quieter then the upright I was using.
The canister is light weight and can be carried easily
I do have a problem with the heat from the canister if using the shoulder strap to carry the canister around while vacuuming the stairs. The heat is uncomfortable and something that would have made me think twice about purchasing it. So, because of the heat issue I would have to give it a 4 star.
It would be nice if the cord was at least a foot or two longer - but I can live with that.

The Canister Vac is a very powerful, small, light weight vacuum cleaner. It does an excellent job.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rocky & Bullwinkle Great Product!
Everything the catalog said it was - and more. I especially appreciate the light weight, as I can carry it around my home as I am cleaning up after my little dogs. Thank you for providing quality items in today's world.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LoveToRead Great bag and filter system
This is a great little vacuum cleaner. The best thing about this vacuum cleaner is the bag and filter system. The easy-to-replace bag goes within an outer, heavy cloth bag. It is very easy to replace and clean. If you find the beater brush attachment isn't turning, check for obstructions at BOTH ends of the hose, or replace the bag. That should do it. I wish the floor attachment had a better brush on it. If it had a better floor attachment, I would have given this five stars.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by pegilly The vacuum itself is great
Have no problem with the vacuum. it is as advertised.
My rating of 4 stars is because of the attachments.I would have preferred an option for better made attachments. the upholstery brush has only plastic points and brushes would have been better and also as you are vacuuming the extension tubes come apart all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dave G. SUCTIONATOR
If Arnold Schwarzenegger had been a vacuum cleaner instead of a cyborg in those "Terminator" films he would have displayed about as much power proportionately as does this mighty little canister. It picks up yesterday's dirt (and probably some from the future, too) and slams it into a paper collection bag that's exceptionally air-tight, but which can only hold so much stuff before it must be replaced. Also, the turbo carpet tool is a clever idea, but it doesn't have the thrash weight of my Beef-altor, belt-driven upright. The combo rug/floor tool, though, is more effective than the one on my old canister. And the shoulder strap is great -- just what I wanted for our Victorian stairs that seem to sprout more and more steps like the mansion in one of those old Stephen King movies. Finally, a vacuum cleaner I can live with!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Old Man cleaner Would recommend with reservations
Purchased this because of the powerful vacuum & portable size. Much easier to use on stairs .. etc.
Vacuum is powerful but the bare floor attachment is adequate at best - rug Attachment is not that good
