I've been looking to replace our horribly expensive Kirby vacuum that we bought.
And I never liked the unit because I couldn't easily pull the hose out to do corners like I could with my old Eureka. Which Kirby insisted we trade in. The Kirby is a big hassle to switch to hose-mode.
There seems to be all sorts of vacuums for 150-200 but I have no idea how loud or heavy they are. Walmart and Costco have them up real high so you can't pick them up. Some have hoses attached much like the Eureka but I can't tell if you can easily pull it out and do corners. As usual all stores have slightly different model numbers so it's hard to compare apples to apples.
I really don't want to do the more expensive Dyson thing though I know they're good.
Any recommendations, either of what to buy or what not to buy?
