I've gone through several $50 Eurekas (Maybe $60 now). They eventually suck themselves to death with all the dog hair and drywall screws in the shag. Not much of a gift, no HEPA this HEPA that but beats buying a Dyson for mucho money. I also have 3 Rigid shop vacs, one has a removable motor/blower that lets you put it over your shoulder to blow the leaves and dogshit away. Comes with a snappy shoulder strap.
I haven't used my Shop Vac since the Roomba entered my household. I can recommend both but the Roomba does the work for you if you don't feel like doing anything for a while.
Miele Carina $250 great vac!
Reggi, you need to be more specific. Does your bro have all woods floors? -you'll need a vac that is designed for bare floors. Full carpeting? Stairs? Does he need many hose attachments for varied cleaning? Or just a strong simple stick vac (or roomba)
I've actually been looking for something I can lug up and down the stairs, that is really light weight/for wood floors/with a hose attachment (cord or cordless). Any recs out there?
I like this one a lot (windtunnel technology!) but it doesn't have a hose attachment.... ideas?
Its hard to find lightweight and good sucking power. I'm with Christina and Modsquad. A shopvac if he's got animals,heavy duty stuff, multiple floor types or varied needs and has needs for shopvac's additional uses (blowing leaves and sucking up water being the two I am most excited about) and a Roomba if he is more of an apartment with one pet kind of guy.

It comes in stainless steel too. Looks very hot when you wear a silver unitard.
Hey all: Thanks for the recommendations. Mama, I have a vacuum that I like very much it is the
bissell momentum it's an upright bagless with a nice long cord and on board tools. I would get
this for my brother but it doesn't offer on/off brush and my brother is a real guy and I think he may
burn it out. This may be a good choice for you if you're looking at hoovers. It has many
reviews you can check out at target and amazon and you can't beat the price it's around a hundred bucks
I'd suggest you check it out as we're happy with ours and problem free for over two years.
His needs are bare floors and medium carpet pile - a few plushier area rugs. I think my vacuum would
be great for him but just not sure.
Thanks all, for the help and input. My brother wouldn't know what to do with a shop vac! He's a
retired teacher and his only tools were chalk and school supplies!Me & Charley Booger Brown
We have the 5 yr old version of this: http://bit.ly/fXkucA It's a Dyson canister, great with animal hair (we live in a fur factory) and hardwood floors as well. It has a washable hepa filter thingie. We have a three floor house and this thing has taken a beating with no problems. It's pretty lightweight and doesn't need a lot of room to store it.Take the u out of neighbour.
a couple of years ago i bought a yellow pet eraser vacuum at sears for about $200 and with exception of the belt constantly needing replacement its been good. Im under a constant state of rennovation here and its survuved screws and hunks of plaster. I also have three dogs and two cats. I believe its a Eureka
they sell something similar at Lowes
