Kirby Vacuum Cleaners
Kirby vacuum cleaners are some of the toughest and strongest built vacuums, designed to be powerful, functional and able to clean both carpet and flat surfaces such as hardwood, tile and linoleum. Main features on many Kirby vacuums include; a HEPA filter, self-propelled and adjustable height, they also offer a wide assortment of attachments including a shampooer. Kirby vacuums are well built but they are perhaps the heaviest vacuum on the market today, this can make it tough to navigate around the house. Another popular opinion about the Kirby vacuum cleaner is the look, it appears dated.
One of the more popular Kirby vacuum cleaners is the Gsix model. Although heavier then most vacuum cleaners this model is self propelled allowing for ease of operation as the powerful suction removes deep-down embedded dirt. The soft rotating brushroll thoroughly cleans the carpet but does not damage the carpet, the adjustable height adjustment adds to the cleaning efficiency of both carpeting and hard flat surfaces. Other features found on Gsix Kirby vacuum cleaners include: surface nozzle, upholstery nozzle, dust brush, wall and ceiling brush, crevice tool, inflatable/deflatable tool, portable sprayer, portable shampooer cap, portable handle, massage cup, extension wands and extension hose. It also has the unique feature of converting from an upright vacuum to a canister vacuum.
Perhaps the biggest issue when dealing with Kirby vacuum cleaners is not so much in how they function, but how they are sold, this is primarily done by door to door sales people who can be very aggressive. I suggest you search on line and try to find a used model at a reasonable price with a good warranty; the heavy weight may not be an issue when you consider the performance and versatility.
