Frustrated Grrrr my vacuum died today. Time for a new one. Any suggestions for a machine with good power, good pick up, at a reasonable price for picking up after all the hairy beasties in my house??

I have a reconditioned CMS1000 by Amway. It about 25 yrs old and still going strong. The only maintanance Ive had to do is replace the drive belt twice. And that was b/c I caught the edge of a throw rug and it stopped the brush before I could shut it off.

Its great on dog hair and easy to empty as it doesn't use bags.

Oh I don't know what mine is called....all I can tell you is that we got it in a thrift store for $20.lol. Works great and we had one that looked just like it, what I like about it is that there was no bags for it, you just empty a canaster Grin I'll get the name of it though and tell you what it is.

i have a lot of comments that dysons are great. a little on the pricey side, but well worth it. i like the fact that they advertise no loss of suction. i seem to have a problem with that...and was forever cleaning all the filters in mine..to the point where i would have to clean them every time i used it, and still not having very good pick up. with all the hair here, and all the dirt and sand coming in on 20 paws and 2 sets of shoes..i need something with great pick up. we are thinking dyson, but have not made a decision yet.
