~ must be good at picking up pet hair

The bestsellers in this category are the Hoover Wind Tunnel, Eureka Airspeed, and Bissel CleanView. But I have had several friends and coworkers rave to me about their Shark Navigator.

Any feedback on these? Other models you'd recommend checking out?


I use a Dyson DC25 for all those things. Its not perfect for use in cars, but it is good enough for picking up pet hair. Dysons are more expensive than other brands, but they are last longer. I've had mine for 8 years now and its still going strong.

Thanks for your feedback. I ended up getting a Shark Navigator. It was a little more than I wanted to spend but I've been very happy with it. It's thorough, relatively quiet and comes with a lot of handy extensions. And smaller than any other vacuum I've owned.

I'm sure Dysons are nice but yeesh, I don't have $400+ to throw down on a vacuum cleaner and don't really see why anyone else would need to either.

Good choice. With 3 shedding dogs, my Shark has been going strong for almost 8 years already.

I bought a Shark Navigator on sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond (less than $150 w/their handy 20% off coupon :D ) after Christmas. It's ugly as hell, but light, easy to use and quiet. Also has astounding suction. It pulled so much dust, dander and fur out of my carpets that it felt like I had never vacuumed my carpets before. :oops:

Well if you had the type of money to spend on a $400 vacuum no problem, I'm sure you'd be looking to spend it on something. :D

It's shewit. ;) And yes, I did notice that it was her first post, and on a thread that hadn't been discussed in several months.

But welcome anyway, shewit!

That's some well thought out spam, inserting "tile floor" into Starine's original post.

My suggestion will be to buy Hoover T-Series WindTunnel UH70210 . Affordable price and a very good vacuum for pet hair. You can check the top 10 vacs and review here . http://bestvacuumcleaner.org/10-best-va ... -pet-hair/

It's spammers googling vacuum cleaners and pasting links to their websites into replies. Those accounts should really be deleted.
