STAYING CLEAR OF THE BIG BAD VACUUM CLEANER (it's a Dyson Ball):

And thanks Dano for sharing your big blue VAC-U-MAX. If my furballin cats get too out of hand I can suck the mess (& maybe them) up with that beastly thing.

Think that VAC-U-MAX might actually work great on those puddles unchained was struggling with in the DIY thread, providing it sucks up water or other liquids. (I don't see why it wouldn't, that thing looks like it could suck up a whole lake!)

It looks kinda pricey, though...

Anyway, I prefer Nilfisk. All other brands just suck!

Geddid? They suck!

No...?




I'll show myself out.

Badum - tish!

Think I'd take it even a step further in that I'd call us MEGA nerds!

Just wait till we start talking about lawnmowers, or even the merits of various light bulbs. That will really get the party started!

(The LED streetlights that have been installed in my 'hood last year, not sure how I feel about them. While I know they save energy they make the place look even darker and gloomier.)

What is the best vacuum for under $200? I think the Shark Rotator Professional Lift Away NV500 is the best for the money, is it perfect? no but it is under $200 and on sale they can be found for $150 and sometimes even less.

Shark Vacuums are another great product.

This comment seems a bit fishy, mainly because my spamdar is on high alert.

I've approved it for now, but I'll be monitoring the comments posted by geneerobins.

I think any living being (well, except for maybe my mother) finds the sound of a vacuum cleaner upsetting and sometimes downright unsettling, but eh, sometimes the dirty deed of vacuuming really needs to be done.

Give the old gal a treat for me, will ya?! :)

Do you have someone to hold/comfort the dog while you are vacuuming? Can you tie her to some kind of a tree (or some such) outside while you are doing the dirty deed inside?

My dog wants to eat my vacuum whenever I or my wife uses it, she attacks the front of the machine with her teeth, so I have to keep telling her no. I also have to keep the dog in the house when mowing because she wants to eat that too.

My family had one of those a while back (a Scottish Terrier), she would attack the lawn mower, so had to keep her inside while mowing.

Not the smartest dog I've ever encountered, but she was endearing in her own ways. (She just hated it when I farted, she was absolutely offended by it. And here I thought my farts smelled like roses.)

....the reason I brought up Panasonic is I have this little hand held that have had for 35 years....used for everything including construction projects and it just keeps on ticking...their air conditioners are the same ( and quiet too )....but this brand always flies below the radar in these fields for some reason....

I picked up a DC43 Animal (canister) and have only had a complaint with the turbohead which Dyson replaced free of charge (lifetime warranty on the machine and accessories). It's a good little machine. The performance won't blow you away (I was at first dissapointed), but we've had it for four years and it still works like the day we bought it. It grows on you. Does it work better than most others?n Yes, but I find that it's construction is where you pay. It's light and engineered to last. Also comes with numerous accessories to clean various things, including a grooming brush attachment. The cat loves to get vacuumed with it (he seriously does love it). If all you need is a regular vacuum cleaner for around the house, then there are other vacuums that work quite well for less and will last.

Had a Shark prior to the Dyson. Good vacuums, but when things go kaput, no CS to help you rectify a problem.

How about roomba ?
