I felt really confused when Consumer Reports gave low scores to many that were recommended by
people on this listserv. So I went to Lowe's and bought a Hoover Wind Tunnel (about $150) on
the recommendation of a woman that works there. It's fantastic! I didn't know just how
lousy my old Rainbow was! I only hope it works this well for more than a week ;)
Here are the recommendations I received from the listserv:
So take heart petowners, there really are vacuum cleaners that can suck it up :)
Dyson Animal: Several positive recommendations. About $400-$500 but Bed Bath and Beyond sometimes has coupons for it.
Any Dirt Devil
Eureka Boss Smart Vac 4870 (Recommended by Consumer Reports, about $150)
Kenmore Progressive with Direct Drive (also Consumer Reports)
