Vacuum cleaners
« on: Mar 28 08 11:18 »
Do you guys prefer the upright or the canister?

  Oh, and how many AMPS is good?  12, 14?  I don't want to spend so much on one and there are way too many to chose from these days.

I am no expert on vacuums. Mine is a hand me down from my mom. But it seems to work good.

I imagine it would depend on the size of your house?

I am not sure of good new brands. Interesting thread, because I will probably be in the market soon.
When the End comes, don't worry if your party shoes are clean or not. Just make sure you have them on!

Hahhaa....looks like the SnuffleUpagus.

  I prefer cannister....but I have stairs and hard floors.  Uprights are useless for both.

If you right click and save as on the picture it comes up as NooNoo???

  As for vacuums.. Ive gone in a different direction. I think I posted somewhere in a thread on here about what happened to my last vacuum. But I ended up getting something like this.. its multifunctional.

 Yes, that's the NooNoo from Teletubbies....the "parental" figure in the show, for those of you without kids.
 
 I like the high-powered electric broom on a stick.  Mind you, I don't have carpets right now.  The last one I bought wassomewhere in the $80-range at StupidStore.
 
 I've gone through several iterations of hand-me-down DirtDevil upright vacuums.  They work fine for both carpet and floor.
 
 There is a huge price range in vacuums.  I believe the difference is this: If you buy an economical one from Costco, London Drugs, Stupidstore- it will last you 2-5 years.  If you buy an expensive one (Electrolux, Kenmore, etc.) it will last damn near forever.  My friend's mom found a premium vacuum cleaner at a garage sale-- it was UGLY...from the 1970s...but it was in great condition and destined to last forever.

 But thats the point! Its multifuntional so you can use it for the garage AND the house!

I must admit at this point that my theory lasted for about ten days (? cant remember) but I ended up being encouraged to buy another vacuum, a mitsubishi upright. I still use the shopvac for the kitchen and bathroom though.

Sounds good.  So if you spill a 4L milk or a pot of chili, go get the vacuum.

   See! Another convert! Now we just need more of us to get used to this idea... where's Van? I think he will be receptive to this idea.

Actually, a shop vac isn't a bad idea.  We've thrashed more than one household vacuum with wood shavings, metal shavings, drywall, etc.
