I have had a Kenmore vacuum for many years. When I needed to get a new one a couple of months ago of course I bought another Kenmore. I love this model as it is very affordable and works excellent! One of my favorite features of this vacuum is the quick release button. You can go from one attachment to the next effortlessly. It works great on all types of surfaces. I can move thru my entire house and with just a click of the button change from the carpet head to the hard floor attachment, to the small brush to clean the crumbs that my children left on the couch. It is so quick to zip around the edges of the room then return to the rest of the floor. I would definitely recommend this Kenmore vacuum to everyone!
