I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

New 2nd Floor Sucker

I just ordered a new vacuum.  Panasonic.  This one is for the upstairs.  I have a Miele Titan for downstairs and that works well.  At present, I have a Kenmore upstairs which is very old, 20 some years old, and is duct taped together.  Most of the tools have broken.  The wand no longer extends.  Back when I bought I paid a lot of money for it, and have gotten rewarded with many years of service; it still sucks.  In fact, the suction is still outstanding an amazing fact when you consider how much horse hair plaster it sucked up during the bathroom remodel, and the pine needs from live Christmas trees, and dog hair... and before that cat hair... lots and lots of pet hair.
The new vacuum is purple and there is only a 5 year warranty, but that's fine.  If it last 15 years I'll be happy.  I had, for a couple of moments, thought of getting another Miele but then there is the price, they're expensive and I really couldn't see spending that much money on something for the 2nd floor.

Mostly what I have upstairs is dust, some dog hair, but overwhelmingly it's dust.  When I'm at work the dogs are relegated to the first floor (ground floor).  It's still expensive, though, with tax almost $300.  It's supposed to arrive on Thursday.  I'm an Amazon Prime member, 2 day shipping, we'll see if that happens.  Here lately they've kind of been dropping that guarantee with purchases arriving on the 3rd day.  Still, shipping is still free, so I'm not really complaining.  So tell me, isn't this a really nice looking 2nd floor sucker?


  1. Sucking is good, in vacuums and other things.

  2. Clean lines, and a bit of purple is always a plus. Good luck with it, Dave.
