This vacuum lives up to it's claims. It is very light weight. The suction on this vacuum is very good, and the bagless feature makes it very easy to empty. Maneuverability This vacuum maneuvers around corners with ease and under tables etc.. The only problem I have with this vacuum is that it does not reach into crevices. Ease of Maintenance The fact that it is a bagless vacuum makes it very easy to empty so there is no messy bags to deal with. Keeping it clean is very easy also, all you have to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth. Suction Performance The suction on this vacuum is very good for the price of the vacuum. I do find that I have to go over the same area a few times to get that area clean. Design The design of this vacuum is very good. I am able to use the tools with no problem. The foot pedals make it easy to turn on and off. Durability I have had this vacuum for some time and I have not lost suction action during this time, and the hose is very thick so there is no chance of puncturing it.
