Very disappointing! This unit only does carpeting that is in front or back of the head. Side brushes pick up little. It is quite heavy to lift or maneuver. The hose does not easily extend and causes the unit to topple over when stretched, instead of rolling with you. Mine has just toppled, breaking something inside that keeps it upright when using an attachment. I now have to hold the unit in place with one hand and vaccuum with the other! The extension is made for someone 4'6 if you're doing a low task, or 7'10" if your task is up high. Hence, you are either bending to use it or lifting it off the floor. The basket filter must be inserted just so. It is easy to assume it is in place. Then when trying to remove it the next time, the whole thing is a mess and only small skinny hands like mine can reach in to adjust the filter so the basket can be emptied. The red and green light (dirty/clean) are a joke. Just a bell and whistle. Designed by someone who has never vaccuumed - or never will. Never another for me!
