WFMW - Battery Vacuum

Welcome to another edition of Works For Me Wednesday! Each week hundreds of people link to
Rocks in my Dryer
for WFMW and share their tips. Please leave me a comment and then go on over to Shannon's and see more great tips!

This is a new find for me. One of the people who rented a condo from me bought this to replace what I had provided for them. She said it was quiet yet powerful. It runs on a battery and it has a back up, that can charge while you use the other one. The battery runs for a long time. I vacuumed for about 30 minutes the other day and never ran out of battery.

This vacuum has a two settings - one for bare floors and one for carpets. Both of those settings work very well.

I finally broke down and bought one for my house. I just wasn't vacuuming enough around here because I didn't want to haul out the canister vacuum. If I had a child, this would totally be their job each day lol since I don't - I've been vacuuming each day myself.

When I went to Sears to pick this item up (It is the only place I have found this exact product) the woman who rang up the sale said that a Real Estate agent comes in every few months and buys four or five of them. This is the gift she gives new homeowners. Awesome idea!

This is the Eureka Quick Up. Write that name down because there are several that look or sound like the same thing - they are not made the same. The Eureka Quick Up Model 96D...found at Sears and I'm sure online somewhere.

I just read a few reviews and they all kept claiming that the handle had a quick release so you can use it in tight spots...sure enough, I just checked it out - mine has that, too! Cool!

I love products that work well - This product works very well!

Have a fabulous day!

Glad you like it! I have bought so many battery vacuums over the years I have just given up. Now I just leave my vacuum plugged in in the hallway!! LOL
