Dyson DC04 upright vacuum
Member Name: magicbeanzz
Advantages: strong suck, good pick up, rug option
Disadvantages: none that i can think of
I have gotten through so many vacuums in the time since I left my parents you wouldn't believe, for some reason they break down on me, overheat, cut out etc etc.....I've not had much luck let's put it that way, but then about 2 years ago I was given the Dyson DC04 and I have had no problems at all. Bear in mind that when I was given it my nan had already had it for about 8 years and the vacumm still sucks everything up without a problem, as if new.
The vaccum is an upright model and has a long cord which you can pull out from the handle and use to clean into awkward corners (with the long narrow attachment - pipe like) or you can attach a soft brush head which you can use to vacuum your upholstery, such as your lounge furniture, mattress and also comes in handy when trying to suck away those cobwebs high up around the ceiling.
You do not need a bag with this vacuum and the filters are washable. I have recently bought attachments from the Dyson website, they are still available, however it seems they no longer sell this actual model any more...which is a travesty, as it sucks up small crumbs to bigger pieces of dirt and having a house with 2 small children having a strong powerful vacuum is a blessing. It also has a setting for rugs which alters the height of the rollers underneath and is a little more delicate if you have a fancy or wool rug!!
You do need to check the rollers under the vacuum from time to time though to clean out any hair as if you don't it can get wrapped around the roller, which does mean a good 15 minutes taking the roller out and trying to unknot and rip out the hair....but if you keep good regular maintenance you'll be fine....would be the same with any other vacuum.
Summary: good powerful vaccum that keeps going and going
