Our Verdict

The unit is an amazing vacuum cleaner, it is smaller than it looks, and comparable in size to a "traditional" handheld vac. In terms of weight, it's actually lighter than many traditional handheld models. With the hose locked into position (like in the default product picture), it "drives" very nicely.
