    roll brush motor crap out on the Shark?

    I think one has to me a real nincompoop to buy a vac without an easy detach hose to vac crud from corners and baseboards

    'course, you can always use a $20,000+ TM too to do the work of a $eventy-nine dollar upright vac if you prefer being a nincompoop

    You should buy a red handle.

    Use an old Kirby. Those baseboards will scuttle out of the way.

    Can you find me a lawn mower? I cleaned two houses today then had to go borrow a lawn mower from my nephew to mow my 3ft high lawn.

    Buy the Shark that turns into a canister vac, so you can vacuum under beds.

    Shark has an edger. And you can look like a hero when you clean the ceiling fan blades with it.

    I guess I shouldn't complain. I could be living in Minnesota. Tomorrow I'm spending the day pulling weeds and making a burn pile. I'll also be wearing shorts.

    Kirby??
    w/Kirby, you can go from nincompoop to sOOper nincompoop
    Not only does it NOT have an easy vac hose, but you also gain a 40 pound DINOSOUR to lug around too

    Yeah, but you get big forearms and the chance to beat absolute h*ll out of other people’s carpet.

    So there’s that. Those. Whatever.

    If you use an edge tool, which you should, keep buying sharks or buy a pro team and look more professional and do a better job.
    If a pro showed up at my house with a tool that they sell on the home shopping network shows I would be worried. I own two sharks, and they do a good job. But they are homeowner vacuums. You are a pro.
