A year ago (April 29, 2012, to be exact) I replaced my old Oreck vacuum with a eureka! AS 1100-AS1109 Series vacuum. I bought it at Sears for around $200. It is very heavy. I am a physically average-strength woman, but lugging that thing around is a chore. On the plus side, it really beat the dust and sand out of my carpets. That is until a plastic part that is a part of the beater bar assembly gave a loud CRACK.
Mike did his best to fix it, but there just was no fix. His opinion is that it is criminal to sell such poorly made, cheaply made merchandise. I guess I got what I paid for.
The motor still works. The vacuum sucks up the surface dirt, but I am certainly not getting my bang for my cleaning buck. Keep in mind that we were in Florida for four and a half months over the past year.
Don’t you just hate it when things like this happen? I am sorry, eureka!, but I am giving you two thumbs down on this one.
Anyone out there have a recommendation for a reliable vacuum cleaner? I guess I am in the market.
