âWOW! I knew this vacuum was rated among the very best, but I am in shock and just how incredible it is. We have a sweet Siberian husky baby that we love more than anything…but OMG THE FUR. Pregnant with our first human baby, I couldn’t handle the thought of baby rolling on the floor and getting covered in fur, despite my best efforts to keep the carpet vacuumed. This arrived today and my husband had it put together in about 5 minutes after unboxing everything. I vacuum nearly every day…and yet this thing pulled up PINE NEEDLES that must have been buried deep in the fibers of our carpet since Christmas. I can’t say enough good things about this machine. Easy to use, incredibly powerful and worth every penny!â
