Tired of cleaning? Why do you think large business's use backpack vacuums? Because you can normally cut your cleaning time in half! Also they are such a simple vacuum idea that there is not much to go wrong and they are one of the most dependable vacuums made. Check out the following customer review that bought a GV 8 quart backpack vacuum from us. "I live in a long, tall & narrow 1,900 sq ft 2 story home. House is all hardwoods with area rugs in most rooms. I have 3 dogs & a cat. The animal hair in our house takes on a life of it's own! While the house has plenty of square footage, the narrow lay out meant that when it was time to vacuum the floors, I had the task of either moving each piece of furniture to try to vacuum around & underneath it or trying to maneuver my way around each room hoping to not bump or scratch the furniture or knock something over. The routine looked like this: lug upright around for the area rugs (upstairs & downstairs), get out stick vacuum for hardwood floors, get out swiffer to get behind & underneath all the items where the vacuum wont reach. Use vacuum again to suck up all the dust bunnies the swiffer did not pick up. Change swiffer and dust all the baseboards. This would take a couple of hours! I can now do my entire house in less than 30 min! All I have to do is put on the backpack, plug it in, and go! The vacuum is very, very powerful and picks up everything in it's path. The tools are easy to change out and most of the tools store right on the backpack belt so they are always with in reach. The metal extension wand works like a dream, quick and easy. No more lugging and bending and maneuvering to get into corners and underneath furniture. This vacuum has given me back hours of my life!"
