What in the world could you be doing that would warrant the use of this machine? If you can answer that question then there is nothing I can say that will stop you from purchasing it.
It’s just as expensive as an Oreck Insight but it’s battery-powered to limit your running time, add extra weight, and reduce engine power. So I ask you again why? The cleaning path is tiny, it looks like a weed eater, and is just as uncomfortable to use.
There is no “on” button (it is trigger operated and you must hold it down the entire running time), I assume this is designed as a feature for those vacuuming their ceilings so that they don’t have to worry about turning the vacuum off when they suck up their blinds, just let go and it turns off… but if you want to vacuum the floor, this is the wrong vacuum cleaner for anyone.
