Yes, it's a hassle to empty the container but the vacuum is cordless so it balances out since I don't have to keep plugging in different outlets and dragging the machine around in a 2 story house. It wasn't as bad before I had pets but now I feel like the cordless model is not made for a job this big hence why I am browsing RFD for vacuums.ID01 wrote: ↑Dec 7th, 2017 6:23 pmIf anything I think it is an overstatement. I don't have a big house, but at least a thousand ft of carpet on a biweekly schedule. So far each vacuum only takes up about 1/6 of the gauge.
I'm not sure how you can have a 0.5 canister emptied 4 times per vacuuming session. That seems like a huge hassle. Still, once you have someone come in the house and tell you they don't notice the pet smell, or someone with allergy telling you it feels much better, it is hard to go back to bagless EVEN if there is no other benefit. The less hassle becomes the icing to me.
Just go to any vacuum forum and group filled with actual vacuum repair people and they will tell you the same thing. Bagged are hands down better in just about every ways when it comes to cleaning.
PS: I do have a dirtdevil bagless upright before, I do have to empty twice every session and it is about 1L. So I guess we have similar usage.
It sounds like the bag changes won't be as frequent as I thought. If I only have to buy like 10 bags a year I guess that's acceptable.
ok then it might not be so bad if you only have to by like
