Paul1977: Not one vote for the Shark Navigator Lift-Away? Never used one myself, but on the ad it sucks up bowling balls. BOWLING BALLS!


I thought "sucks balls" was a bad thing ;)


Depends on your perspective. Ask Thorpe :)

Those upright bissel things are pretty damn good at pet hair and the likes. Have on that's ages old and still a stunner.

I have a Miele Cat & Dog, a lot better than the Dyson it replaced.
We have pets and it cleans brilliantly. we do have a Ergo Rapido stick vacuum to do the stairs etc, but apart from that, the Miele does everything easily.
I wouldn't recommend using the motorhead every day of the week as it will prematurely wear your carpet.

We've got a Labrador x Retriever that moults golden fur by the bucket load all year round. Dyson for the weekends and the LG RoboKing VR6270 scheduled to run everyday keeps it all under control. Without the LG, the Dyson would come out every second day.

Dyson is the gold standard for me. There used to be ads floating around about their product testing. Marketing some might say, but one better be sure the products stand before making bold statements

Also have the Miele Cat & Dog, have used numerous vacuums in the past and this of the better ones we've owned. Have 3 indoor Birman's who seem to have an endless supply of fur to deposit on our carpets :)

I have to vacuum our house daily because we let the mutts in to sleep on bean bag dog mats during the night. It's amazing how much fur two large dogs shed in that amount of time. The Shepherd is the worst. I have to empty the Dyson every other day.

I just checked Consumers and A few models of Miel are clustered at the top. There's a Dyson in there too.

I'll give a vote for the Shark. Best vacuum I've owned although all previous vacuums were sub $200 so hard for me to really compare. Also unfortunately (or fortunately) my floor doesn't get covered in bowling balls very often so I can't back up that claim for you sorry.

Funny I read this old thread yesterday after a google search, as our old vacuum died and then it pops up on live 2 years later. Sorry networkn I haven't used a sauber, but I did end up buying a miele c3 allrounder. I had to order it as it was out of stock at our local Farmers. Amazingly it was on sale for $50 less than the next cheapest price which was also on sale . Noels also had it on special but it was $70 more and they were exactly the same model. There is a hepa filter version but that was dearer again at noels. So it definitely pays to shop around

Our Dyson died since my last reply to this thread. We bought a bagless Bosch pro silence from Harvey Norman and are happy with it. It's a lot quieter and I like the variable suction on it.
