Emptying and Cleaning Vacuum Cleaners

We are students at the University of Strathclyde and are currently studying for a degree in Product Design and Innovation. As part of this course we are required to do a Product Development Partnership project. The project we have been given centres on the emptying and cleaning of vacuum cleaners.

We would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to provide us with some information by filling out the confidential survey below:

Thank you for your time and help,

Euan Fraser, Graeme Petrie, Paul Bree and Ryan McGinley

Will do, but I must say that is the most unusual uni project I ever heard of, but it doesn't mean it is not interesting, look forward to the results, keep us informed.

That and we are cynical basta*ds

Its probably legit. I'd answer it if I pushed a vaccum instead of a surface cleaner.

Here's all you need to know:

It has to be cheap (I would rather replace than repair)
It has to be bagless
It has to be light
It has to transition easily between hose and brush
It must have large capacity

So far, wal-mart has a few cheapo vacuums in the $60 range that are just fine for this.

The only complaint is filter size. I would like something that can go longer without cleaning the filter.

That's about it for me.

really? I didnt think any cleaners used bagless. They kick up too much dust for me.
It is a 99.7% filter bag followed by a 96% cloth bag, backed up with a hepa level outflow backpack vacuum for me all day long. Makes less dusting for me next time
Plus over time, it costs less than buying cheapo walmart vacs.
