Works as claimed
I purchased this vacuum and have only used it a few times so far but it works as promised. The suction is good and it can pick up small pieces of wood left over from burning. I wish it had wheels on the bottom for rolling around and when you pick it up by the handle it does not hang straight but these are minor issues. i would recommend purchasing the tool kit that is sold separately. The brush comes in handy for cleaning the hearth. This is supposed to be a quiet model and it's not bad but I wouldn't want to hear how loud the not so quiet model is. I would purchase this item again.
