The carpet option on this vacuum was not adjustable and it was way too low for over my carpets.The handle was not well attached because it is meant to be removable but it just feels like when I'm pushing and pulling on the vacuum it's going to break off. I couldn't really put any force into it. The last straw and the reason I returned it, is the holder for the cord snapped off after I'd owned the vacuum for 2 weeks. Cheaply built, not very functional, and comes with almost no hose attachments. No thanks!
