I bought this at Ollie's, and I'm impressed! I had an Oreck XL, and I was constantly burning up belts though I had replaced the roller. I used this behind my Oreck, and it picked up all of the hair and dust my Oreck left behind. This vacuum is on the heavy side, but I was able to find a caddy for $15.00 at Walmart.com. So, I now have a $200 vacuum for $135 with tax. I have asthma, so I empty the canister outside so the dust doesn't bother me as much. I wash the filters with vinegar and so far it's been a great vacuum.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
