OT Hand-held vac

Over the years I've purchased several cordless, hand-held vacuum cleaners a=
nd each has been a big disappointment. Does anybody own one that has good=
really suction and is easy to use (no big complicated hassle to use attach=
ments, etc.) Or do you have one that I should avoid?
TIA

I have a Dyson hand held and love it. My big Dyson is just too heavy for e= veryday use, although I use it often for the rugs. The hand held uses all o= f my big Dyson's attatchments and came with a few others. It has a long tu= be for hard flooring and beater bar for rugs and upholstery. The suction i= s great. I can do the sewing room, living room, kitchen, dining room and b= ath on a single charge. The only part that needs to be plugged in for charg= ing is a small part about the size of a pack of cigarettes. I really like = it a lot.

Mine is corded - Dirt Devil - but it works well particularly on the stairs. Then again, I usually get away with my Dyson animal with it's attachments. But that is a pain to haul up/down stairs. I had a tiney corded Dirt Devil upright that I really liked but it had no tools. Decided I wanted tools. DH bought one at Xmas and after several uses and more than one repair with each use it ended up on the front lawn. I wanted a second machine for upstairs so I didn't have to lug the Dyson. Just not to be apparently so I'm currently lugging. What a pain. Cordless/handheld...good luck, especially with furry kids like we have.

I have a Shark and we are Not friends. Not cordless, loud and heavy. Don't know which model. I don't get it out unless desperate. I'd put up with the loud and heavy but somehow the beast manages to get dust and fluff up inside and above the cup. I have to coax and crochet hook the wandering wad that blows up where it can't dump readily. Mine just may be a lemon. My coolest trip for giving the sewing room floor a tidy is to cut a scrap of batting the size of our Swifter mop base. I mist it with plain water and swipe around the traffic pattern and sewing/cutting areas. No cost, no racket and Very effective. Polly

It is 4 years or so now but still works pretty well. I liked it enough to buy one for ds. I bet his is still like new. lol I do have a lot of pet hair I have to clean out of the filter often. That comes with the furbabies though. HTH, Taria

One thing to look to to NOT get is one that is powered by a NiCad battery. These eventually overtime build up a memory and soon will never charge again. You are supposed to use such batteries to the bitter end before recharging, but I find it rather annoying to leave the cordless laying there on the floor running for another ten or fifteen minutes to fully stop running before I put it on the charging stand. This is after the power is so low there is no suction left.
I don't have a recommendation since I've hated everyone I've had so far.

We have the cordless Dyson "stick" vac. It works really well as a hand vac if you take off the long "stick" part.
