Fabulous vacuum cleaner


Love my new vacuum! Light weight and easy to use. I especially love not having to hold the trigger down for 45 minutes while vacuuming! Arthritis in my hands now, so this feature is wonderful! Love the laser light to see all the dust and crumbs. The de tangle feature is great for cleaning up after pets. Highly recommended this model!
