My vacuum cleaner is on the fritz. I picked up the part I needed for the power head today and it was around $12 + so no too bad. However I need a new hose, a couple of new filters and some bags. The hose is $138, by the time I get the rest of the stuff it will be cheaper buying a new vacuum cleaner. Its a Sears canister vacuum cleaner by the way.
I have mainly wood floors in the house, but I do have area rugs that I need to vacuum on a daily basis to get rid of the dog hair. I called in at Canadian Tire on the way home and they had a number of vacuum's on sale, some for under $100. As money is tight at the moment, I would prefer to keep it under $100. If I had plenty of money I would buy a Dyson like this one:
So my question to you what would you suggest? Do you have a cheaper vacuum that works well and where did you get it from. For those of you in other countries outside of North America, just give me the name and model number and maybe I can find a similar on here in Canada.
I tend to lean towards canister ones rather than upright ones. Also which is best, bagless or one with bags?
