I use this vacuum daily to keep up with my dog hair, and cat litter that scatter the floors. Unlike some of the other stick vacuums, this one really DOES pick up cat litter. The charging stand is very convenient. I went from an Electrolux Ergorapido, to this, and it is MUCH better!! The roller doesn’t always pop off on the bottom, you can vacuum rugs with it, and it is much sturdier! Also, the Electrolux charger kept breaking (I replaced it 3 times), and this convenient stand does not have that issue. I am very happy with this machine!
