I purchased this vacuum in 1979 and just donated it last year to Goodwill (and it was still working). This was an incredible machine. Over the many years I had it, I had regular maintenance done a half dozen times. I believe that helped keep it working good. Maneuverability Maneuverability was ok, nothing special. Ease of Maintenance Maintenace was extremely simple. Very little was ever needed. Suction Performance Very good. We always had pets and we had no problems. Durability I had it for over 30 years and I'm sure someone else is enjoying it now.
