Takeaway: Good for small clean up jobs, moderately lightweight but can cause fatigue

You'll receive the vacuum motor, nylon storage bag, two tapered extension tubes, attachment adapter, floor sweeper, three attachment nozzles and brushes, and an instruction manual. The two extension tubes are identical and each has a wide end and a tapered end allowing them to nest and be used interchangeably. To attach to the vacuum motor, insert the attachment adapter, then the tubes. The floor sweeper does not have a motorized brushhead. Instead it has a stationary hard surfaces brush and two felt pads surrounding the vacuum hole. There's also two plastic wheels just behind the head, but they don't swivel much or spin easily which makes this attachment feel pretty cheap. On the top of the sweeper is a toggle button that raises or lowers the short brush in the front depending on whether you are cleaning hard surfaces or carpet (down for hardwood/tile and up for carpets). Each of the nozzles can then be fitted onto the end of the tubes: crevice nozzle, brush nozzle, and convertible wedge nozzle w/side brush. The motor base weighs about 4 lbs and has a 15 ft power cord. The length of the vacuum tube is customizable for the job. One both, one, or neither of the extension tubes with the nozzles based on your needs.

When you need to empty the dust from the collection canister, there's a small gray switch in the front that when pressed down releases the bottom door so the dust inside the bin can drop out. You should also periodically disassemble and clean the canister to prevent loss of suction power. Disassembling and reassembling the canister is pretty easy to do and requires no special tools. To turn the vacuum on you just need to click the power button trigger in the handle. There's no need to keep the button pressed down. To turn it off, click the button again. The extended tube and light weight makes this vacuum nice for hard to reach places like ceiling corners where cobwebs tend to collect. You can also run it along wall edges and the tops of door jambs where you wouldn't be able to clean with a large floor vacuum. On hard floors with the brush down, I found that I wasn't a huge fan of the wide brush head because the wheels on it don't swivel and are so lightweight, they didn't really feel effective. You have to turn the whole unit rather than just the vacuum brush making it a bigger chore. That's not to say the cleaning ability wasn't good because it did pick up plenty of dust and debris. For large pieaces of debris, you have to make sure it passes under the middle of the sweeper head to get sucked into the vacuum tube.

On carpet, the vacuum performed a bit better, although without a rotating brush, it doesn't get deep into the pile. However, you also don't run the risk of tangling in any rug fringe. The brushes and felt pads on the bottom of the sweeper head pick up/stick to pet hair and dust, but you'll have to pull these stuck pieces off when you're done cleaning. My main complaint with this vacuum is that is it very loud and gets tiring to use after about 20 minutes. When emptying out the bin you might have to shake or pull some of the dust bunnies out. Overall the vacuum worked quite nicely for cleaning a small space. For short quick cleanup jobs like spills and occasional tidying up it's a big helper since I don't have to pull out the big floor vacuum or drag around the central vacuuming hose.
