I wish i could help, all floors are wood or tile. So no need for a big vacume. Bump though!
Quoting MrsCountryMama:I like my dirt devil but I don't have a lot of carpet.
I LOVE my Dyson Animal. I have a Golden Retriever, so dog hair is everywhere! It does amazing in carpet and on hard floors. I don't think I'll ever get another kind of vacuum.
I have a Kirby. Its the absolute best but its a pretty penny.
Eureka is not too bad.
