I am in the market for a new vacuum cleaner and was wondering if you know of any really good ones?<br><br>
Nothing frustrates me more than a vacuum cleaner that doesn't actually suck up cat hair, etc.<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Well Sunny,<br><br>
We wanted a cuum that would work on animal hair and tear it up. We bought a smaller shop vac and it's worked wonders. that baby has some power. we switch it's motor from the cuum to a go cart.

Hi,<br><br>
I recently bought a re-built Dyson. That thing is amazing. Even used it still cost me $200, but it is worth every penny. I have 3 cats and that thing picks up cat hair like crazy.<br><br>
Just my opinion. Hope it helped.<br><br>

Dyson. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Although I do love Henry vacuums but they're nowhere near as good as Dysons <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Do you have a Sears near you? I have a 25 year old Kenmore that still works amazingly well, and they're not ridiculously expensive. If you have access to a Sears, check out their Kenmore vacs!

I will also say Dyson.<br><br>
I'm getting my Mum's old one, psyched. She brings it down sometimes when she drives down to visit so I can vacuum my room properly, the one we have here is crap. CAN'T WAIT TO GET IT SERIOUSLY THEY'RE SO GOOD <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I have a Henry one and it is too heavy. I will probably get a Dyson when we can afford it.

Also with a dyson you will be able to SEE that you are about to grab someone else's dusty old used condom. Which is always good.

Awesome! I have been researching Dysons. I don't have much money and found a DC 17 on some sites in the $250-280 range. I want one so bad!

i bought a vacuum about 6 month ago specifically looking at the cat hair issue. i got <a href="http://www.hoover.com/product.aspx?model=UH70210&ds=false#" target="_blank">this one</a> and it does a great job getting the hair out of carpet

I have a very old rainbow and love it. Would highly recommend it especially for someone with pets. It uses water as the filter so ALL dander, dust and microparticles are trapped and even when it is full, cannot blow back into the room like I have had trouble with on everyother vacuum I've had. Even sucks up and traps cockatoo dust which was impossible to get rid of with other vacuums because it got sucked up and then blown out through the filter.<br><br>
i bought mine on ebay about 4 years ago for $200. It is a model from the 80s and still works perfectly. I also love that you can add a few drops of essential oil to the water and it will perfume the room while you clean. Very useful way to add aromatherapy to the cleaning experience.<br><br>
My vintage rainbow beats a new dyson anyday. I have a friend with a dyson and it is better than most other vacuums, but rainbow is still the best in my book.
