This vacuum is a workhorse and I would highly recommend it for anyone with a large family and lots of carpeting. It does a powerful job and you will not be disappointed in the results. I especially love the Inteli-clean system. Maneuverability Movesa round very well but is just a bit heavy. Suction Performance Very good suction you will notice a difference from other products. Versatility Change from crpet to smooth floors and attachments are easy to use and very efficient.
