Good Morning Ellen,

So what's the scoop on these expensive vacuums? Are they really any better, or just more expensive?


First time poster long time lurker on this board. I'm certainly not a vacuum cleaner expert, however, in your quest for a vacuum you might try looking in the yellow pages, and going to a janitorial supply store. I went to one several yrs. back wanting a good quality squeege for my windows - wound up buying a vacuum.

The vacums in janitorial supply places are commercial grade. I purchased a Coach-Pro - seems like it was $450. Typically these are used where lots of vacuuming needs to be done, i.e. casinos, banks, stores, etc. Its COOL - a backpack, you wear it on your back, a cylinder shape, very long cord, attachments are on a belt attached to the backpack (very handy. I can put it on go all through the house, and never have to stop and unplug - walk out in the garage and vacuum the car while I'm at it. Cylinder shape doesn't take up much storage space. VERY powerful - it cleans.

Long and short have a look at what is offered at janitorial supply stores for excellent commercial quality, at what I think will offer an excellent value for your money.


PS - janitorial supply stores are great for gadgets, supplies to make cleaning easier - fun places to browse around in.
