Holy **** Batman!! I just picked one up (DC14 Animal) 'cause our Oreck died on us. Warning!!! keep small children, small pets, & anything else you don't want sucked up away from it (if your mother in laws small enough your in luck) And we thought the Oreck had some juice to it, man oh man this thing out sucks it by a mile. Attachments galore and no more problems with pet hair. No more smelly, nasty filter bags that pollute your air & cause your present vacuum to lose suction big time. If your in the market for a new vacuum give the Dyson line a look. I picked ours up at Bed Bath & Beyond with a 20% off coupon. Man that helped.
