Default Vacuums

What do you guys own? I have to buy a new one and the Dirt Devils I buy break down every year and it cost more to fix it then replace it.

I have one of those 1500 dollar Tri Stars that has been great for about ten years now and never given a problem. that said, spend a hundred bucks every few years and it will be cheaper.

I have a dyson. Absolute beauty. Mine was like 500 bucks. You can probably get yours a bit cheaper in the states. No belts and its bagless. Best vacuum I've ever owned

I have a Royal. Same manufacturing as Dirt Devil. Not very happy with it. Had a Kenmore before it, y'know the kind that lay flat with the flex hose and all the fixins' inside. Loved it and worked it like a rented mule for 15 years. Ahhh, the memories. Everybody that I know who has a Dyson loves em'.

She went out and bought a Hoover. I was going to drop some serious money on one to keep from having to re-buy, but this one has a warranty, so that's positive.

And it's broken. Seriously. I have to send it the manufacturer for the warranty to be honored?

Dang.

Do what I do. Go buy another one of the exact model, put your broken one into the box, and return it saying their product stinks
