Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by unit suction dwindled to almost nothing after a few uses. No clogs in hose, nothing obvious jammed, went from being wind-tunnel force to almost nothing. February 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by It is a little under powered for it size, but makes up for it by being quiet. What I like most is that it is made in the USA! July 18, 2012
