What's so good about dat Miele? I hear about it all the time.

I've only used mine once, but it's quieter, more maneuverable, and has better suction than other vacuums I've used.

The best.

http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-vacuum-cleaner/

I've got one that I think is equivalent to the C2 Onyx (they change the names all of the time) except it is an in-store only model (because apparently you don't buy fancy vacuums on the internet yet) that came with some extra attachments and the HEPA filter for the same price (I think the store swapped the standard floor tool for the parquet twister). Store also discounted by sales tax % (so cheaper than amazon), and when I bought one for my parents, I got another 10% or something as a repeat customer plus free shipping.

Parquet twister is the best vacuum attachment ever. Turbo brush is sufficient for my limted carpet coverage (especially with dat suction) and saves $$$ over the electronic brush.

If you are fully-carpeted, the upright might be the way to go...but I'm definitely a canister vac convert.

Bags are the way to go. Fuck bagless machines. I have a cat and I still get quite a lot of use out of one bag. Change it FAR less often than I had to empty my old bagless...and I don't have to go outside and bang out some nasty dusty filter.

Central vac ftw. They seem to get hate for some reason but easily the best and most convenient system I've ever used. I just wish I could talk Mrs. Piob into a house keeper once a week but she's oddly resistant. frown.gif

I've used my friend's Rainbow vacuum, I'm a hyuge fan. He offered me a refurbed one for $600 and I almost bought it. Having the dust/debris collect in water seems much cleaner then bags/bagless. I've never used a Miele though.

Made a soft shackle with $1.20 worth of dyneema. Same exact thing would have been $20+ from the store.

The pool boy would still be for Pio anyway.

Preferably one who can supply his own tools of the trade, like soft shackles.

So the topic of this thread is the best method of sucking.

Business as usual
