Hi! I'm Steve Chubin at Steve's Sewing and Vacuum Center in King of Prussia, PA and today we are here to discuss how to buy a vacuum cleaner. Some of our customer's however, do prefer a lightweight vacuum. A lightweight vacuum is obviously light in weight and easy to use. A lightweight vacuum generally can go from surface to surface cleaning carpets and hard surfaces such as tile, wood floors, etc. A lightweight vacuum generally does not have any tools on the vacuum. As you can see here, there are no hoses on this vacuum and there is no tools on this vacuum so this would be a vacuum that you would use primarily for doing floor surfaces not for any additional work such as draperies, upholstery or beds and what have you. So the upright vacuum that is a lightweight, just is the idea there is easy to use. Going from surface to surface and pushing something that is extremely lightweight. This vacuum being a nice lightweight car vacuum and there are others in this market that are lightweight will reduce the amount of effort on your wrist and your arm. This vacuum also being an upright does a very good job on filtration. This does have a very good bagging system. The bagging system is a cloth disposable bag and the combination of the inner and outer bagging system would make this what you call a Heppa Vacuum a Hepa Filtration in a vacuum. This vacuum is preferred by people who do have bad backs, bad wrists, things of that sort and this vacuum is something that we do sell a lot of them and we do recommend this particularly anybody that is up in years or someone who has those situations such as backs, problem with the wrists and arms. This vacuum will not do any of the cleaning of the tools where you do not have any of those hoses or tolls on there. In this vacuum, you would get what we would call a vacuum system. The upright and then a compact canister. The compact canister is what you would use to do the accessory cleaning.
