Jones Sew and Vac Compliment - Love my Riccar!
IDAHO -- I have been married 18 years and have had (seriously) 12 vacuums! Some wer of the e from yard sales, some the side re woad, some hand me downs, however 5 years ago I was watching TV late one night and the southern old man charms of Mr. Oreck convinced me I should spend 500.00 on his 8 lb. vacuum! After all, I could choose what color I wanted and they even had lime green! And of course it was all under warentee! 5 years later I will just say stay far away from Oreck! It was a peice of garbage that didn't work from the day it arrived. Called the company numerous times (they sent me out a package of free vacuum bags which never got used since it picks up VIRTUALLY NOTHING!) The warantee means I drive my vacuum 300 miles to the nearest service center in Layton Utah And they "srevice" it for 70.00 because don't you know dumb lady the doohickybobs are not under warantee. And we know this won't bother you since when you get back to Idaho you vacuum will still not work! Needless to say I cancelled my hot date with Mr. Oreck. But I digress... Last month I started searching online vacuum reviews and read great things about Ricaar, I also have a friend that has one and is a radio DJ so I wasn't sure if she was sincere about her devotion to this vacuum. I found ed local Mom and Pop type place Jones sew and Vac that was an authorized dealer ..The store always has customers (good sign) They personally demoed many types of vacs but the riccar was by far the best. I took the plunge and speant 1,000. (He dropped the price 100. and threw in bags) A month later I am checking into V. A (Vacuumers Anounomous) I can't stop! My 4 year old carpets look like they were just cleaned ! For the first time in my life I am really understanding what the attatchments can do for my home. I have a 4 lb dog and I don't let him in the room that I am vacuuming because it is so powerful I swear it will eat him! The first day I had it I filled a vacuum bag on my main floor alone. Disgusting!!! The second day I had it is was clogged co I took it in. They Explained that this a belt free system so yhe belts never break and there's a place you can open and get out allthe things you sucked up you shouldn't have . HOLY COW! HATS, nails pennys legos,,, I LOVE IT!! Jones is friendly and very knowledgeable!
