    Default help with Vacuum cleaners

    Hi guys, I'm after some help re: vacuums. I'm buying a new one and want to spend under $400. I have a dog and a cat inside so it needs to be good with pet hair and tiles as well as carpet. Any help would be appreciated - what do you have? Apologies for this being all one paragraph but Bubhub has decided not to let me use my enter key :/

    Get a Dyson seriously the best vacuum ever I'm pretty sure you can pick them up around $400 mark sometimes just a little more

    Wierd I just bought a new vacuum today and it pretty much sounds like what you're looking for!

    It's a Wertheim brand Dog & Cat W2000. I bought it from godfreys for $399. I don't actually have pets inside as I bought it more for the allergy side of things. It's got really good suction and some extra 'special' turbo cleaning heads that are supposed to pick up dog and cat hair, including one specifically for upholstery/couches etc.

    Worth a look as it seems to be cleaning up after DH quite well HTH!

    LOL awesome! It has bags in it though, doesn't it? Are the bags expensive? I think I'd have to replace the bag after every use around here.

    Yeah it does have bags. I was originally looking at bagless but it kind of makes more sense for me to seal all the allergens etc in rather then them going everywhere when I empty it.

    I bought a box of 20 for $45, so about $2.25ish a bag. I think they mentioned you can bulk buy an amount that makes it cheaper per bag. I probably wouldn't be changing the bag as much as you possibly would though, hmmmm

    I think I'll go to Godfrey's and talk to them. Thanks though, you've given me something to think about :-)

    Yes I saw a VAX on the Godfrey's site that's reduced to $299 from $599 which is supposed to be good for pet hair.

    Just wanted to update in case anyone else is looking for something similar. I bought the VAX bagless turbo powerhead. Was $299 reduced from $599 and it's AMAZING. I wasn't even this excited about my first good vacuum and it was a Dyson!
