Vacuum suggestion

Haha, yeah I posted about pillow stuff.
I am also looking for a decent vacuum.
Is it possible to find a decent vacuum with canister for under $300? Most i found are $600+
Amazon is filled with knock off crap. One friend got a cordless one for around $250 and its terrible.
Thanks!

Save up a little bit more and then get either a

Miele if you don't mind buying disposable bags

Or

Dyson Cannisters if you don't want bags

You can have my 1988 Sears Kenmore PowerMate 840 cannister vacuum with the 10+ bags for $150 ... it still works like a GEM!

Motor works great ... well maintained for 30+ years!

Definitely FITS within your budget!

Miele has a bagless vacuum. I got one from Costco last year for $510.

Wait for a sale on a Tineco from Costco. I got one I think for $319 and it's fantastic bagless.

But why are you selling?
And what will you replace it with?

Another vote for Miele, it is quiet, lots of suction power nothing beats that machine.
It’s also amazing how packed the bag gets.
I hate bagless vacuums, standing and inhaling all that dirty dust. With a bag you remove it from the machine and toss it in the trash.
