[quote postid="4498491" user="nicholsona"]I paid full price for this vacuum ....about two years ago, and I LOVE this vacuum.
I'm not really into the referbs, but if you're OK with buying someone else's returned garbage, I say you should get this. At $300, it's a bargain; unless if falls apart two weeks after you get it.
This vacuum is designed for people with pets, and it does a better job picking up the dog hair than my old vacuum. I have a Jack Russell with a rough top coat, and some of her hairs can be like little needles sticking a half-inch into the sofa cushions. Unfortunately, it doesn't get all these nasty embedded hairs, even after going over them 20 times or more. But then, nothing else does either. ....quote]
I see you haven't tried the WindTunnel...
we have two pups, one is a rough coated jack russell and the other is a hairy beast that sheds much more.... and our HOOVER WIND TUNNEL gets the sofa clean in just a couple passes.
If you have to vaccuum it 20 times, and it's still not clean??.. SELL that Dyson and get a HOOVER WindTunnel!
