    Well, it arrived.

    So far I'm impressed. I love the beater bar, the light weight, plenty of suck, and the long power cord. I also love the smell-good tab that you drop in the bag.

    Dislikes: Only 10" of cleaning area per pass and no edging tool.

    You don't see me using a 10" crb do you? However, I am considering buying an airport shuttle van and ripping out the seats. I hear it's worth it having the rear A/C vents and extra windows. :)

    It looks like I already lost possession of my new Oreck. My wife tried it and totally loves it compared to our Kirby. Looks like the Kirby is going back on the van.

    I also got a brand new vacuum today. As you can see I went a different way from the tiny motor and narrow cleaning path.

    You don't need wings on a horse.
    You do need to edge when you vacuum.

    Seeing you recommend that POS vacuum is really disappointing.

    My wife is very excited to have this vacuum. So it's good in my book.

    It's feather light, if the lack of edging is bothering you @hogjowl you can attach the small cannister vac Mikey also loves (for furnature) with some tape or zip ties and boom...problem solved. It will need two cords now, so it's sorta like a portable but with low amps you can plug them both into the same outlet.

    Mike, I'm just going out on a limb here, but i'm guessing your favorite part of the movie Jaws was the part where Richard Dreyfuss cut open the belly of the Tiger Shark and pulled out a license plate. :stir:
