CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE -- I have been looking for a bagless vacuum for several months. Never found one I was willing to pay for, all seemed way over priced. Today during a home depot visit, I walked by a display of only 4 vacuums. A test sales item. at $49.99, I figured if it does not make me happier, I can always return it. Needless to say, it is an awesome vacuum. Nothing fancy, basic extending wand of metal, a plastic hose, a dual floor nozzle, a dual crevice tool, and an upholstery tool. The specific reason I purchased this vacuum was for the cyclonic bagless feature. It even has a HEPA filter and automatic cord rewind.
I did find with the floor tool, for hardwoods, it was better to use the carpet setting. This has small brushes that protect the floors. The other setting for hard floors works great if scratching is not a concern, for tiles and sheet flooring.
If you are in the market for a great little vacuum, for a fair price, swing by your local home depot and see if they have any of these.
