For at least five years, I have used a Hoover Windtunnel Supreme vacuum. And for as long, I have disliked it. It's tools would easily fall out of their cradle during normal use, it's power cord had thin, easy-to-damage insulation, the power cord was easy to step on the way it was routed, and the vacuum would fall over easily when using the hand tools. My Hoover Windtunnel Supreme vacuum is an annoying example of poor engineering. Finally I decided enough was too much, and just bought a Sanitaire SC5815. What a relief. So far, I like this vacuum because:
* It has a long, well-made power cord. The power cord is routed such that it is easy to keep out of the way
* It is quiet
* It's tools stay in place. It's long crevice tool nests inside a single extension tube. The long crevice tool can be combined with the extension tube thereby eliminating the need for a second extension tool (as implemented by the Hoover).
* When the handle is in the vertical position, the beater brush is automatically lifted off the floor so that the machine does not scrub in place when the hand tools are used.
* The suction is great
This machine cost about $75 more than the Hoover (if you do your Internet research), and well worth the difference.

This machine is still functioning well. I just now changed the drive belt, and I waited much too long to do so. I should have changed it a couple years ago. The belt had been slipping for some time now and I had not noticed until after I changed it. The slippage was do to normal belt wear and was not a fault of this great machine's design.
