I take my dyson slim with me but I also have 2 dyson canisters. I have had some of them for 5+ years and they are still kicking. I know there are other heavy duty vacs out there but I find the attachments on the dyson very easy to use.

I am back to the first vacuum I ever purchased. It is the PowerForce Turbo Bagless from Bissell. It's light, you can wash the filters and the heppa is cheap enough to replace. The suction is better than any other vacuum I've tried including a full size Dyson when I worked for someone else. The cost at Walmart is under 70.00. The hose is a bit short but to me that is the only problem. I have a bare floor tool that I prefer and the turbo brush is good for pet hair, stairs and put it at the end of the extension and it goes under beds and I don't have to move furniture. Parts are cheap, I have two, one for backup and if it breaks after warranty, for 70.00 bucks, I get a new one. Filtration is great so Healthy HOme and Dyson don't have anything on it as far as I can tell. Don't let them know you use it for commercial use if you want warranty service.
I have had the Bissell Healthy Home Vac which is about 260.00. It weights 25 pounds and is a night mare to lug around and push. It caused me hip and back problems. Within three months the turbo brush broke, the hose ripped and now (I use it as a back up vac) the beater brush part of the vac broke of on one side.
I bought a rebuilt Dyson Slim, like you I don't have 400 to 500 or more dollars to purchase a vac. The clips popped off holding the beater brush on, small ball bearings make the beater brush turn smoothly fell off and got sucked up along the way and then it lost suction so that was it for me. Plus they wouldn't fix it. That was after five months which is pretty good for me as far as vacuum life. I did love the lightness, the size and the way it swiveled. The suction was very good but still not up to par with Powerforce. I don't know what the big deal is with cyclonic. I hope Bissell comes out with an affordable all floors version of a vac with the swivel or ball vac like Dyson.
I've been at this for over two years and have never had any complaints about how well my vacuum performs. You don't need to go broke to clean a house well.
Hi all! Want to say how much I'm enjoying all of your posts!
Could someone recommend a good (but not too awful expensive) vacuum cleaner please? I'm mainly doing residential cleaning but small offices at times.
Need something with attachments.
I recommend to use canister vacuum which is usually more flexible. As compare to uprights, canisters manage carpets but they're also best at residential cleaning vacuuming stairs and removing up dirt from corners.
If you are looking for a good and quality brand vacuum cleaner that is easy for using and provide effective cleaning, then dyson brand vacuum cleaner is one best choice for you. Mostly people prefers to buy a dyson brand vacuum machines.

Don't cut corners when it comes to buying a vacuum cleaner for a shag carpet. While it may be tempting to purchase an inexpensive vacuum cleaner, a quality vacuum is an investment that pays off by extending the life of your shag carpet, keeping it fluffy and luxurious for years.

HEPA vacuum cleaners have long been known in the vacuum cleaner industry for their power both in commercial and residential use. In purchasing a vacuum cleaner it is important that one be obtained that will fit your budget as well as your needs. There are many different kinds of vacuums on the market and choose one that will not only do a good cleaning job but that will allow a healthy atmosphere as well.
