Vacuum cleaner recommendation

    Can anyone recommend a good vacuum cleaner? One that had really good suction and is upright, with a long hose for stairs.
    I should say that I have had enough of Dyson. This is the second one I have had that has lost suction and wont co-operate!
    All suggections are welcome!

    Dyson every time as long as you look after it per manufacturers instructions. If you don't nothing will work.

    Its been cleaned and properly looked after ( both models I have had have been well-maintained) but the suction is gone when its tilted back, ready to push over the carpet. Im fed up with Dysona and want an alternative.
    Thanks for your thoughts.

    German every time. My vacuum is lovely, works a treat and has NEVER let me down :)
  5. I have a Vax... it's good at picking up cat hair (I have a mog who lists sleeping, eating catfood and shedding fur as her three only pastimes) but it tends to jam up pretty easily and putting it onto hose mode is a bit fiddly.
    Still picks up better than my mum's Dyson - just requires hubby to de-cat it on occasion.

    just got John Lewis vacuum last week - £89.00. Very very impressed so far! Super suction and quite lightweight.

    Thanks everyone. I have narrowed it down to Mièle or Sebo.
