Mine crapped out finally and parts are obsolete. I usually get Hoover Windtunnel because of cat and dog hair. They (pets) are all gone, at least in the house so I need a new inexpensive unit (-$200) that's still good. I'm not sure that cordless is the way to go, there's a good bit of debris because of a big tree all over my back yard. Any insight? I'll either order one tonight on Amazon or go to Sam's and get one tomorrow.
