I was vacuuming the house the other day and my vacuum cleaner began to smoke. Not a good sign. The motor had burned up. I bought this vacuum almost 8 years ago at Service Merchandise on sale for $69. Needless to say, it had lived its life. The next day I read an endless amount of reviews of vacuum cleaners and discovered one that outshown most of the rest in its price range.
It's the Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Bagless. It's half the price of a Dyson and many reviews said that it worked just as well. Sears was having a sale, so we bought it. I love this vacuum!
