I vacuumed myself after the little bit of assembly. I only vacuumed a few rugs and, OMG, the amount of dust and crud it picked up was amazing. My old vacuum must not have been working at all. This one sucked up the dirt to the core of the rugs. I actually took a picture of the amount of crud I dumped out after one runs through! I recommend this vacuum to the nth degree of a billion. Amazing.”
