    Not sure, but the savings on electricity should pay for it.

    I have a bissell and it does a good job of cleaning, I have also found out that from time to time you need to take it apart and clean it, It always works like new when I do this.

    I have had Rainbow vacuum's for over 40 years. First one was a gift from my parents. I bought the other three myself. Each lasted about 13 years and I bought the forth one just three years ago. They are a far better vacuum than any other on the market.

    those little robot vacuums look awesome. But I am in the same spot as you. The last thing I want to do is add to my collection of useless vacuums. Mine broke so I am asking the same question as you.

    I've sold Kirbys an Vorwerks in my time, and once went head-to head with a competitor who had the same kind of 'test kit' as I did. I let him pull up some dirt, then I pulled more out of his square. Then he pulled even more out after I finished. We took turns cleaning that single square a good 15 times before it became clear that we'd both been bamboozled by our supervisors. NO vacuum can take it ALL out, ever. So now I just go by features that I like. And I like self-cleaning cyclonic filtering systems. They work until they're full.

    After graduating Syracuse University with a degree in smoking pot and alcoholism, I got my first job selling Kirby vacuums door to door in upstate NY. I'll tell you two very honest things: (A) Kirby makes a great vacuum cleaner which last forever; and (B) Never buy a NEW Kirby. Find a used Kirby for 1/15 the price. They are just as good and, as I already said, they last forever. I'll never forget that Kirby pitch. They give a bunch of desperate unemployed people a two day training session and then tell you to go home and "practice" on your family members. Guess what, about 1 in 3 families feel badly for the new Kirby salesman so they buy a Kirby (usually the only vacuum that guy will ever sell). The people who return they give you a set of cheap steak knives and a roll of paper towels. They drive you into middle class neighbor hoods and you walk up to the front door with the knives and paper towels. Knock, Knock, Knock... Door opens and you start: "Hello, mam, have you received your FREE GIFT TODAY??? (smile, smile, smile). "Ah, no." "YOU HAVEN'T???" (Surprise, surprise, surprise) WELL, FOR MERELY LISTENING TO A VERY SHORT PRESENTATION ABOUT A GREAT NEW HOME CARE PRODUCT THAT WILL MAKE TAKING CARE OF THE HOME A BREEZE, YOU ARE ENTITLED TO GET AND KEEP EITHER THIS GREAT SET OF...

WHICH WOULD YOU PREFER????" (SMILE, SMILE, SMILE).
    "Well, I guess we could maybe use the knives."
    "MAM, THAT'S A VERY WISE CHOICE. HERE'S THE NEW KNIVES FOR YOU TO KEEP. JUST LET ME GET MY EQUIPMENT AND I'LL PUT ON A SHORT PRESENTATION AND BE ON MY WAY."

    So then I lug in a new $600.00 Kirby still in the box and launch into a TWO HOUR high pressure sales pitch. You'd be surprised how many people wind up buying the Kirby they neither need nor really want. I actually think some folks bought just so that I would go away.

    Nevertheless, Kirby used to be one hell of a vacuum. Of course, I did that job over 30 years ago, so things may be different now.

    lol. I guess I can let this out of the bag now. I sold Rainbow vacuum cleaners for about a month and my Grandmother was the only one who bought one. I think back then they were about 800 bucks

    The Kirby was a good vacuum cleaner but terribly overpriced! I had a brother that repaired Vacuums for a while, and he recommended the Eureka upright, Inexpensive durable and easy to repair.

    I have been looking at used Kirby's and they are priced right. You can also go on eBay and get all the part for the Kirby.

    My Dyson is my favorite piece of cleaning equipment. It's one of the first ones to come out, and it still works perfectly!
