    well.. my wife is getting really old... and she messed up her back when she fell off the roof cleaning out the gutters this past fall... so I need to get her a lightweight vac that she can lug up and down our stairs... we have dogs with dog hair.. so that comes into play...any suggestions? thanks

    We just bought a Shark for $129 and it is great. Lightweight, quieter than most, and really does a great job picking up cat hair.

    They are not bagless but you may look at Meile canister type and Sebo brands. Very good vaccums. I replaced a bagless with a Meile upright and it is much better, and much less mess changing the bag versus emptying a bagless container which lets some of the dust back into the air.

    The shark is light and might be just the ticket.

    Valentines Day is just around the corner so a new vacuum always goes over well as a VD gift.


    I like to see our TGP husbands being so thoughtful toward their wives.

    Perhaps the next time she's on the roof cleaning the gutters you could stand below and encourage her by saying "Be careful dear. Remember last time you fell off the roof".

    I try my best... it was cold and windy out and I didn't want my hands to dry out and slow down my shred ability... luckily when she fell she was only out of commission for a week or two

    thanks for the suggestions so far.. I will look at both of them... buying bags though seems like a downer...

    Do you really think that better gear will make her a better housekeeper? There's housekeepers everywhere that bust out a vintage Kirby and make good use of it. Tell her to put on her big girl panties and "suck it up"!

    We aren't even old and frail, but we have a vacuum cleaner for each floor. The Dirt Devil canister is nice. Dyson is great.

    i know i might be thinking out of the box, but what if you got two vacuums and she wouldn't need to carry it up the stairs...?

    Maybe it's not the vacuum cleaner that needs replacing?
