Panasonic MC CG902 Canister Cleaner Burgundy
OK, here's my story. I had a Kenmore canister nearly identical to this Panasonic. I loved it. Eventually, the wire that connects the wand to the carpet cleaning unit no longer made a working connection. It seemed to me to be a design flaw. The newer Kenmore vacs rerouted the connecting wire, most likely to prevent the separation of the main wire over time. Anyhow, I thought that I'd never buy another canister designed this way because of the wire, but after looking at what the stores had to offer for canisters and the prices, I decided to purchase the same design over again. I really did give the Kenmore a run for its money. As it turns out, the Panasonic parts are interchangeable with the Kenmore. I plan to order Panasonic parts to fix the old Kenmore. On the flip side,and as I've read from other reviews, it's cheaper to use the Kenmore bags and filters over the Panasonic ones. Contrary to some reviews that I've read about the suction, the Panasonic works just fine. You just have to remember to make sure that the ring on the upper part of the wand is totally closed. The purpose of the adjustable ring is to decrease suction for vacuuming things like drapes. My dog sheds 24/7. He's a lab with furniture privileges. Fur is a fabric in this household. The Panasonic does a nice job of extracting the fur. I use the carpet unit on the furniture. I vacuum in several different directions and am pleased with the results. We have hardwood floors and area rugs. Not having to change the attachments when jumping from rugs to carpets is a nice feature too. Amazon had our vac delivered in two days. It was definitely brand new. Our vac was red. I didn't care what color it was, but the picture that I saw on the web site was burgandy.
