Handheld Canister Vacuums

So good to have an ultra lightweight vacuum cleaner. Suitable for cleaning the entire house? For sure the answer is no. This type of vacuum cleaners will give you the best results when you have small areas that need to be cleaned or for your car and if you don't want to extract your upright or full canister vacuum from the storage. If you like the cordless one then just think before buying one that it does work on batteries, thus having a limited working time.
The Hoover BH50030 vacuum cleaner is for sure the best choice if you want to clean pet hair from your sofa and your car. It features a special tool designed for cleaning the pet hair, works for roughly 20-30 minutes and it comes with the best warranty available on the market. Eureka 71B vacuum cleaner is also best suited for cleaning pet hair even if it wasn't designed for it, and it's main advantage compared with all others is the quality/price value.
If you just want an intermediate vacuum between full canister and a small hand-held, then the best choice is the Hoover C30000 canister vacuum cleaner. You can also try the cordless Black and Decker FHV1200 vacuum which features a pet hair tool.
As final thoughts I would recommend you as a cordless vacuum the Hoover BH50030 and as corded, the Eureka 71B vacuum. You will be fully satisfied no matter what is your choice.
