Vacuum Cleaner Blues

My vacuum started smoking today and when Sean took it apart the motor was completely fried. Naturally the vacuum had to be completely disassembled piece by piece by the boys, all of them! It required a flashlight, hammer, several screwdrivers among whatever other tools they could use. This was our second Kenmore and with heavy use it held up reasonably well but we are going to look at the other options out there. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good vacuum that will hold up to daily usage and has parts that are not going to break often? We tend to be pretty hard on things.

I don't know if you will get this. It was difficult to "find" the comments button on your blog. As for vacuums we use an Electorlux canister vac. I wouldn't recommend it for you family because there are parts that could break easily. I would recommend a Dyson. We have used one a few times (when Barb's was in the shop) and it has great suction and seems very sturdy. We don't use the Dyson because it doesn't work well on hardwood floors. That's my 2 cents worth. You might want to adjust the settings on your blog to make it easier for people to comment.
