I was so excited when I came across the Electrolux Ergorapido 2-in-1 Stick and Hand Vac. I had been searching and reading reviews online, so I knew what I was looking for. A cordless vac that was lightweight, and also had a hand vac that I could use on furniture and in my car. I remember the brand Electrolux from when I was a child, and remember the durability and quality. In fact, our Electrolux Canister Vac is still running to this day, and has extremely great suction. Unfortunately, the Electrolux Ergorapido was not manufactured the same way. It is definitely extremely lightweight, and has the hand vac that I wanted for the car and furniture. But, it has absolutely no suction. It doesn't pick anything up. I have cleaned it throughly, cleaned the filter and checked for clogs. It seriously picks up absolutely nothing! When I first got it, it was great. I have a cats and dogs, and find myself using this practically daily. At first the vac picked up everything. From cat litter to pet fur, it got everything. After about 3 weeks tho, I started noticing a loss of suction. I am very disappointed. The hand vac reminds me alot of the Black and Decker from years ago. It looks very much the same. It has a tiny opening at the front, and just doesn't pick up anything. I guess I am back to the drawing board, and need to look for yet another stick vac. Maneuverability It's very lightweight! Ease of Maintenance Easy to dump the dirt out. Suction Performance Started out great, but went downhill rapidly!
